Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy refers to a type of regenerative medicine that has revolutionized pain management, especially in addressing degenerative joint and bone conditions.

Each person has a certain amount of stem cells in their bodies. Stem cells develop in many parts of the body, such as cartilage, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and more. 

Also known as undifferentiated cells, stem cells don’t yet have a set function and can adapt to whatever function your body needs them to perform.

Stem cell therapy has been instrumental in helping physicians treat injuries and improve the healing process. Through stem cell therapy, your body receives the cells it needs to repair damaged tissue.

What conditions benefit from stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is used to treat a variety of conditions, such as chronic pain. If you’ve been diagnosed with osteoarthritis, for example, it means that the cartilage at the ends of your bones has started to wear away. 

When this happens, the bones rub together, causing pain and inflammation. Stem cell therapy can help restore cells and healthy tissue around the cartilage.

Stem cell therapy has also demonstrated results in treating the following injuries and conditions:

  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Muscle tears
  • Severe sprains
  • Meniscus tears
  • Tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
