Bone marrow stem cell therapy is a very promising advancement in the orthopedics and sports medicine. It represents a brand-new approach to treating orthopedic injuries including bone and joint pain by leveraging your body’s natural healing powers – potentially delivering long-lasting, and sometimes permanent relief.
HOW IT WORKS
Stem cells acting as “mobile paramedics” are naturally produced by your body to heal injuries and repair damaged and diseased tissue. In fact, every second, 15 million blood cells die and are regenerated in our bodies. Immediately after an acute injury, they are released off of blood vessels called “pericytes” and migrate towards the injured area to begin healing. Unfortunately, our bodies sometimes get overwhelmed by a significant physical stress and the injury and can’t heal themselves. This leads to chronic pain, inflammation, and limited function.
That’s where bone marrow stem cell therapy comes in. After completing comprehensive hands on evaluation and obtaining state of the art 3Tesla MRI and/or dynamic ultrasound testing a proper diagnosis is obtained. Our physicians create an individualized plan, which may integrate utilizing your own stem cells and precisely under visualized guidance (ultrasound and/or x-ray) delivering them into the injured area, potentially restarting or enhancing the healing process. This is followed by a customized rehabilitation and exercise program to maximize results and restore function.
