Stem Cell Therapy
Stem Cell Therapy, a product of Biologics in medicine, is a cutting-edge technology that is beginning to revolutionize sports medicine. Adding to the appeal, stem cell therapy is minimally invasive, using only injections to help heal injuries or treat degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis.
Using stem cell technology, which has made enormous strides in recent decades, this innovative method of orthopedic medicine jumpstarts cells during the process of mending injuries to the bone, tendons, and cartilage. The resulting cell regeneration stimulates healing of the body, then promotes physical strength and stability to help ward off further injury, arthritis, and degeneration.
Stem cells are obtained through human bone marrow and amniotic fluid. Using FDA-approved methods and technology, Stem Cell Treatment can be done in office both as a standalone treatment and as part of post-operative therapy. Studies show that Stem Cell Treatment improves healing by 20%, and provides the additional benefits of reducing scarring and inflammation.
Stem cell therapy:
- Delays or eliminates the need for surgery
- Relief of pain quickly and safely
- Little to no down time
- Minimally invasive office procedure, no hospital stay
Benefits To Sports Medicine
Stem Cell treatment expounds upon the body’s capability to heal itself. Similar to cortisone and steroid shots, these cells possess anti-inflammatory properties. However, stem cell therapy far surpasses standard injection treatments, which offer only temporary relief. Stem cell treatments ease discomfort and contain growth factors that may actually replace damaged cells, while simultaneously providing restorative healing to the tissue. To aid and increase mobility, the injections contain hyaluronic acid, which lubricates joints and tendons.
Many prominent athletes have chosen stem cell therapy, when possible, rather than risk major surgery. The hope is to minimize the pain of the injury and help it heal without the long recovery time required by surgical procedures. These injections can improve outcomes and help achieve the bottom line result of getting athletes back into action, pain-free, faster and with less chance of injury.
Cutting-Edge Technology for Osteoarthritis Treatment
In the past, patients with debilitating knee osteoarthritis and degenerative arthritis had few options other than total or partial eplacment of the joint, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory injections and pain medications. Now, procedures like stem cell therapy can be used to delay or even prevent the need to resort to these options.
