Stem Cell Therapy for Orthopedic Conditions
Billions of cells make up the human body and specialized cells form specific organs like the brain, skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and bone. Every day, these cells regenerate and degenerate. As older cells die, new cells are born from stem cells with the unique capability of being able to create multiple types of other cells. Numerous diseases and chronic pain injuries can be treated with stem cell therapy. This include orthopedic conditions that include acute and chronic muscle, tendon, ligaments, bone and cartilage injuries.
Orthopedic Conditions Treated With Stem Cell Therapy
- Mild to moderate osteoarthritis
- Degenerative Arthritis, especially the hip and knee
- Tendon injuries, including partial tears of the rotator cuff of the shoulder
Goals and Success Rate
Stem Cell Therapy aims to reduce pain and improve function. Some cases are too severe for stem cell usage to work, in which case surgery is necessary. There is very low risk involved and an average procedure only lasts around 30 minutes.
Pain relief and function improvement typically begin to occur about six to eight weeks after a successful treatment. Chiropractors on staff at Prime Spine and Orthopedics will provide detailed explanations of everything a stem cell treatment will involve as well as answer any and all questions you have upon setting up a consultation appointment. Another incredible benefit of stem cell therapy is that the average treatment is begins and ends within the space of 30 minutes, and most of the time there is absolutely no recovery time afterward.
