Pain in your spine, knees, hips, and other joints can seriously interfere with your quality of life. Even the simplest tasks become a chore, and activities you used to enjoy – such as exercise or hanging out with friends – are tainted by pain.
Relief from pain is sometimes obtainable with injections or prescription medications, but these pharmaceutical interventions have side effects and possible addictive qualities. If surgery is an option, it requires extensive downtime and carries a risk of blood loss and infection.
Stem cell therapy, however, offers a revolutionary option when it comes to pain relief. It provides an alternative for patients with chronic pain and difficult-to-heal injuries, without the side effects and risks of medications and surgery.
Stem cell therapy can help you manage pain in a minimally invasive way. The treatment involves injecting stem cells around painful joints, muscle tissue, tendons, and/or nerves.
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells, meaning they don’t have a specific purpose as most other cells in your body, such as muscle cells or heart cells. They have the capacity to morph into whatever cells are needed in your body at a given time. So if stem cells are injected into an injured tendon, they can create the cells and tissue to ease pain and regenerate healthy tissues in that area.
When used as a form of interventional pain management, stem cell therapy can treat a variety of joint conditions, including rotator cuff injuries, tendonitis, Achilles tendon pain, tennis or golfer’s elbow, osteoarthritis of the knee, and spine issues.
At Metro Pain and Vein Centers, we use stem cells to help repair damaged tissue and repair injuries. The stem cells are injected into the precise areas where you have pain. The procedure is simple, and it’s performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you go home the same day.
Stem cell therapy offers real relief from pain. Plus it can cut down on the length of time it takes for injuries to heal. You may experience a relief in chronic joint pain, meaning less need for medications. For conditions such as osteoarthritis of the knee, you may experience improved functionality and range of motion.
With the reduced pain achieved with stem cell therapy, you can sleep better. And you’re less likely to make compensations for your injury and pain that often lead to referred pain. Your body produces more collagen, a tissue-strengthening compound, in response to stem cell injections, too.
With stem cell therapy, you’re able to return to your normal activities as quickly as possible, and you don’t have to wait months for your body to heal from surgery.
