Are you suffering from chronic joint pain? If so, you may have heard about “stem cell” injections and may want to schedule a consult at Essentials Medispa and Salon to see whether these injections are right for you. If you want to avoid the surgical route of repairing a damaged knee or treating an arthritic shoulder, novel cell-based injections are becoming readily available and could give you the relief you need.
The core issue stem cells therapy addresses starts with Osteoarthritis, which is a chronic disease that may impact multiple joints with varying degrees of severity. It impacts over 25 million people in the United States. Modern medicine offers the ability to treat the associated symptoms of osteoarthritis – like pain and stiffness – without impacting the progression of the underlying disease.
What are stem cells?
Stem cells are special types of cells with the ability to multiply and self-renew. They also have the potential to replicate into specialized cell types forming potentially any tissue in your body. In other words, they can become a cartilage cell, a muscle cell or a nerve cell. The Mayo Clinic is projecting that stem cells will dramatically effect orthopedic surgery over the next few years.
How can stem cell therapy help?
Clinical outcomes from ongoing and previous studies are very encouraging, demonstrating the ability to improve pain and generate knee cartilage repair. Many patients have been able to avoid knee surgery as a result of advanced stem cell therapies. There have been numerous professional athletes that have benefited in recent years from advanced regenerative therapies for orthopedic pain. A well known athletic superstar, Rafael Nadal, has undergone stem cell procedures. After a successful procedure for his ailing knee, Nadal returned to highly competitive tennis, logging several more major wins.
