Stem cell treatments, also referred to as regenerative medicine, involves using your own body to naturally heal itself using a combination of cells and specialized fluids. Today, we will explore this treatment further to enlighten you about what, exactly, this treatment involves, what to expect during the injection procedure, and a brief outline of the numerous benefits of this regenerative therapy.
What Is Stem Cell Therapy?
When most people think of stem cell treatments, they relate them to treatments for serious illnesses like cancer. Stem cells, however, have proven healing abilities for a wide range of illnesses, conditions, and injuries.
Stem cells are the basic building elements of tissues in the human body. These cells have the incredible natural ability to repair and regenerate tissues in the body to restore tissue function. At Advanced Medical, we tap into three of the body’s stem cells for treatment, which include adipose tissue (fat), bone marrow, and umbilical cord matrix (Wharton’s Jelly). Your own cells, along with amniotic allografts from healthy, post-natal C-section births, provide the powerful growth factors needed for tissue regeneration. Stem cell therapy is a combination of these regenerative cells, cytokines, and hyaluronic acid to stimulate regrowth and rejuvenation of your body’s tissues to relieve pain and improve function. Once the cells are injected into the affected area, the growth factors go to work by stimulating cell growth in the area of injection. Within the first few weeks, the cells grow, divide, and form new tissues, thereby healing the damaged or injured tissues without surgery.
As such, stem cells are ideal for treating a number of musculoskeletal disorders ranging from injuries and tissue damage to osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease, to chronic pain in the knees, elbows, shoulders, and hips.
What To Expect During a Stem Cell Treatment
Stem cell therapy is performed in the comfort and safety of our medical office. There’s no preoperative prep, as this is a nonsurgical, noninvasive treatment. The regenerative medicine is injected with precision directly into the affected area. Most patients report little-to-no pain during the procedure with only a slight pinching sensation at the injection site. The procedure is quick, typically performed in just one sitting, in most cases, with reports of dramatic reduction in pain and improved function in just a few weeks. There’s no downtime, no lengthy recovery time, and for most patients, one treatment is all it takes. It’s important to keep in mind that each and every patient is unique, and each body reacts in its own way to treatment. Overall, the majority of patients report positive improvements and enjoy lasting results.
