Stem Cell Therapy

Not long ago, stem cell therapy seemed like a promise found only in science fiction, taking natural healthcare protocols to the cellular level. Treatment options were limited for joint pain and osteoarthritis, until recently. Steroid injections, joint replacement surgery, and physical therapy were the only treatment options. Stem cell injections are now available and not only are they being considered in relieving pain, but also in helping heal the joint.

Stem cell therapy involves taking stem cells from one area of the body and then injecting it into an injured area. Stem cells are responsible for rebuilding and regenerating the body. The underlying premise, is that stem cells are in fact living cells that can transform themselves into different types of tissue or functional cell. Therefore, they are able to differentiate into ligaments, tendons, bone, nerve, and cartilage.

Restoring the hope of a pain-free future for many, stem cell treatment options allow the body to heal itself, generating renewed strength, flexibility, and mobility. Patients with stem cell therapy report faster healing times, increased energy and superior reduction of pain. Regardless of the length of dysfunction or the seriousness of the injury, stem cell treatment has allowed millions of patients avoid invasive surgery and eliminate the use of harmful pain medications.
