The Truth About Stem Cells and Joint Pain

People often come to our clinic because they suffer from chronic joint pain. Some have tried countless methods to treat this pain and others are at the beginning of their journey.

While surgery can be a viable solution, it can also mean a lengthy recovery time and potentially lead to other complications.

Yes, we know that surgery is sometimes the only option. But for the other cases? We look for the least invasive solutions to help you get back to normal.

This is where stem cell treatment comes in  

When it comes to new and emerging treatment for joint pain, stem cell treatment is at the top of the list. Instead of an invasive surgery, it uses your body’s own healing ability to rebuild damaged tissues.

This relatively new therapy uses stem cells from adipose tissue, bone, amniotic fluid or platelet-rich plasma in order to help your body heal. The stem cells injected actually have the ability to renew and develop into different types of tissue.

What does it treat?

Because stem cells are the building blocks of all human tissue, they can be very effective in restoring tissue in your body that is damaged.

Stem cells injections are used to treat arthritic conditions and ligament/tendon tears of the knees, shoulders, hips, elbows and wrist. We’ve even used it to promote healing in spinal conditions.

One thing to keep in mind — if you’re seeking stem cell therapy because you have a severe or complete loss of cartilage, it may not be effective. Stem cell therapy is better for those who have partial (rather than complete) tissue damage.

A natural alternative to healing

If you are a good candidate for stem cell therapy, there are definite benefits to opting for this type of treatment. For one, it’s free of medications and steroids. This makes it a more natural and effective way to treat pain.

It’s also much less invasive than major surgery. You won’t have to deal with intense post-op pain or a lengthy recovery time. You’ll be able to jump back into your normal routine quicker and get results faster.

What can I expect during treatment?

During treatment, stem cells are injected into the problematic area using ultrasound or fluoroscopic guidance. From there, the stem cells start to generate new cells and promote healing in the damaged tissue.

After the injection, side effects are often minimal. You may experience mild pain or some joint stiffness at the injection site.

Be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions about how long to rest the treated area and what precautions to take. This can make all the difference in the effectiveness of your treatment.
