Is Stem Cell Therapy Right for You?

Stem cells have a unique ability to take on the form of other cells. They are known as “undifferentiated” cells, which means that they haven’t taken on a particular function or form. This unique quality gives stem cells the ability to treat damaged tissue in any part of the body.

Recent advancements in the scientific field have made it possible for doctors to harness the power of stem cells and use them to heal injuries and reduce pain. Stem cell therapy, a type of regenerative medicine, is extremely effective in the treatment of degenerative diseases, including arthritis, as well as in the treatment of injuries such as herniated discs and compression fractures.

Stem cell therapy carries little risk. The cells used during treatment are exacted from your own bone marrow. They are then spun at a high speed in a centrifuge to create a concentrated solution. This solution is then injected back into your body at the site of the damaged tissue. The undifferentiated cells take on the characteristics of the cells in the damaged area and begin the healing process. Because the cells are taken from your own body, there is absolutely no chance of rejection or adverse effects.

Many patients suffering from chronic or acute pain due to aging, accident, disease or congenital defects are candidates for stem cell therapy. Conditions successfully treated using stem cell therapy include:

  • Arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Torn ligaments and tendons
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Herniated discs
  • Compression fractures

There is no need for general anesthesia during treatment, and because stem cells heal damaged tissue, stem cell therapy may prevent the need for surgery. Most patients experience significant improvement in joint, tendon and ligament function and a drastic reduction in pain.
