5 things you need to know about stem cell therapy for pain reduction

Stem cell therapy is an emerging treatment option that continues to be proven successful, not only by scientists, but also by doctors who use it in treating a variety of conditions, including chronic pain. This process uses a person’s own stem cells to repair damaged tissue and regenerate new healthy tissue, i.e., to help repair and heal damage and degeneration. Stem cell treatments have reduced the need for prescription medication and surgery, proving to be a helpful tool towards managing and potentially eliminating pain in the body.

How does stem cell therapy work?

The human body has an amazing ability to heal itself. Stem cells can multiply and turn into “specialized” cells to target whatever injury or condition needs healing within the body. Positive research results continue to roll in showing the efficacy of stem cell therapy as a game changer for accelerating healing, regenerating tissue, and combating pain. It has helped untold numbers of people overcome insufferable chronic joint pain, restoring function and mobility and improving their quality of life.

Here are five things to know about how stem cell treatment can help people who are suffering from chronic pain.

  1. Common conditions that the stem therapy specialists in Aventura, Hollywood and Pembroke Pines can help with:
  • Osteoarthritis/Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Back pain, commonly lower back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Neck pain
  • Tendinitis
  • Torn meniscus
  • Sprains and strains
  • Broken bones
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Rotator cuff tears
  1. 2. Stem cells decrease nerve damage and the formation of scar tissue

Stem cells are able to repair nerve damage, improve muscle control, and restore function and mobility. As adults have stem cells within tissues/organs, including in the central nervous system, they are able to repair nerve damage. Beside that, stem cells are widely use to improve muscle control and restore function and mobility.

Specialists in stem cell therapy in Aventura, Hollywood and Pembroke Pines say that as new tissue forms after the injury starts to heal itself, the chances of painful scar tissue that is common to post-surgery recovery forming are reduced.  

  1. 3. Stem cells do relieve pain and work to repair damaged regions

As opposed to steroid shots (cortisone), which are helpful in reducing inflammation at the expense of delayed or no healing, stem cells work to reduce the pain and inflammation associated with these conditions, they also work to repair and regenerate the damaged tissues.

  1. 4. Stem cells collected from bone marrow, adipose tissue and umbilical cord derived stem cells are effective at pain relief

Stem cells can be gathered from several locations, but most commonly they are taken from the bone marrow and fat (adipose tissue) and umbilical cord derived stem cells. When it comes to pain management, the stem cells gathered from bone marrow seem to be the most effective at treating painful conditions and injuries. We would love the opportunity to discuss the different sources and recommend what would work best for your particular  medical condition.

  1. 5. Medication is not the only option for pain relief

Medicine may help with inflammation and pain, but usually, it is a short-term solution. Using a person’s own cells to promote tissue healing and regeneration may be more effective for reducing inflammation and lowering pain in the long run, especially as compared to seemingly endless cycles of prescription medication.
