Have you heard of Stem Cell Therapy, but aren’t exactly sure what it is? We can help! Today we provide an overview of what Stem Cell Therapy is and what it can be useful for.
Stem cells, sometimes referred to as master cells, are essentially the raw materials of the body. Stem cells can develop into other types of cells within the body like muscle, ligament and cartilage. Under the right conditions, stem cells can divide to create daughter cells and be guided into becoming specific types of cells.
Stem Cell Therapy is a method of regenerative medicine that involves repairing or regenerating damaged cells via the use of stem cells. It may be utilized for orthopedic, inflammatory, autoimmune and neurological conditions. The goal is to give the body the tools to heal itself and mitigate the symptoms of these conditions, thus improving quality of life.
Stem Cell Therapy can be an effective treatment for arthritis, nerve damage, ligament damage, cartilage injury, tendonitis, rotator cuff tears, labral tears, degenerative disc disease, disc herniation, tennis elbow, carpel tunnel syndrome, meniscus tears, Achilles damage, plantar fascia and more.
