Joint Pain is most often caused by diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system, consisting of the joints, bones, muscles, nerves, ligaments, and tendons. Approximately 126.6 Americans are impacted by joint pain, many of which are debilitating and interfere with daily activities.
Stem cell therapy is a great regenerative treatment for joint pain. With this treatment, patients can avoid surgery, opting instead to regenerate the damaged tissue with their own stem cells. The Regenerative Orthopedic Institute offers stem cell therapy for a broad range of orthopedic conditions, and we can develop a regenerative treatment plan to target your condition.
This article will further discuss orthopedic conditions and how stem cell therapy can provide powerful healing without surgery.
Common Orthopedic Conditions
There are several common orthopedic conditions among patients today, which can be treated with stem cell therapy at the Regenerative Orthopedic Institute.
- Arthritis of the knee
- Rotator cuff tears
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Tendon tears
- Ligament sprain/tear
- Plantar fasciitis
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy can be administered with excellent results for the treatment of joint pain. As a regenerative treatment option, stem cell therapy is non-surgical and allows patients to avoid the risks associated with orthopedic surgery.
How Stem Cell Therapy Works
In stem cell therapy, adult stem cells are collected from the patient, and in the lab, the stem cells are isolated from the tissue. The concentrated stem cells are then combined with the patient’s own platelets and injected directly into the damaged tissues causing the joint pain. Ultrasound and x-ray guidance are used in this process for precision.
Stem cells need to be directed to repair the damaged tissue. Your own RNA and DNA instruct the stem cells to repair the damaged cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. The ability to grow new tissue is the miracle of stem cells.
After stem cell therapy for an orthopedic condition, it can take two to three months for the patient to see full improvement. However, many patients experience improved function and reduced pain far sooner. After the tissue has been healed, the results of stem cell therapy last many years.
