PRP & Stem Cell Therapy
Since 1981, stem cell therapy, further known as regenerative medicine, has promoted improved response to diseased, dysfunctional or injured tissues utilizing stem cells. In other words, in tissues such as bone and muscle, stem cells of adults (somatic stem cells) can create substitutions for bone and muscle cells that are lost due to injury, disease, wear and tear.
According to the National Foundation of Stem Cells, stem cells are known as core body cells because they have the ability to grow into any type of cell in the body to repair or replace damaged cells which may arise due to injury or disease. These cells serve as “specialized” cells that make organs and tissues, providing lasting treatment for chronic diseases affecting millions of people globally.
What conditions can be treated by Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cells are used in orthopedic medicine to provide therapeutic treatment through the musculoskeletal system. Stem Cell Therapy is also useful for early wound healing and arthritis in the shoulder, hip, side/wrist, hip, knees, feet/ankles.
- Partial Tendon Tear
- Partial Tear of the Ligament
- Cartilage situation (not cured, but can be effective in alleviating pain)
What does PRP therapy include?
Researchers prepare stem cells in the lab and manipulated by specializing in specific types of cells, such as heart muscle cells, blood cells, or nerve cells. Although stem cell therapy requires invasive surgery, and stem cells are called cells derived from placenta mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), they are pre-prepared and injected directly into the area of pain or injury, joint, ligament or tendon.
Depending on the severity of your problem, local anesthesia can be applied to reduce pain during the procedure. The purpose of this process is merely to relieve pain, while new stem cells encourage the body to repair and cure faster, creating healthy tissue. Stem cell therapy has recently been a reversal in the field of medicine, especially in the area of orthopedics due to the potential of stem cells to treat pain from arthritis and other chronic and acute pains of other orthopedic injuries.
What are the Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy?
Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy:
- Quick relief of pain
- It promotes healing without surgery
- It helps in the regeneration of healthy tissues.
- There is no stumbling block
- Less risk of surgery.
Are you a Stem Cell Therapy Candidate?
Question, are you a good candidate for stem cell therapy? The answer is that we are all different and our body can react differently from others. However, the future of stem cells is promising because thousands of studies, trials and research show that people of every age can benefit from regenerative medicine.
This treatment can alleviate arthritic pain, chronic pain and treatment injuries such as partial ligaments and tetanus cracking. This is a safe procedure that has been shown to accelerate healing, and the decision to treat stem cell therapy should be case by case.
Patients with osteoarthritis are often good candidates for stem cell therapy, as well as patients with soft tissue lesions, tendons, ligaments and cartilage. Depending on the severity of injury or condition, stem cell therapy can be used with an orthopedic surgical procedure for rapid recovery.
