Joint regeneration therapy, also called stem cell therapy for joints, is a process that uses your body’s own healing capability to combat injuries and diseases to your joints. By using your own stem cells from your bone marrow or adipose fat tissue, regenerative cellular therapy encourages renewed healthy cell growth. Stem cells injected into the problem joint become bone, tendon or soft tissue as needed for joint regeneration therapy that truly heals.
Joint pain becomes more common, more noticeable and sometimes more debilitating as you age. The cartilage in the joint breaks down, and soon you experience the pain of bone rubbing on bone. When your joint decays enough and the pain gets unbearable, you may opt for reconstructive or replacement surgery. But there is another option to consider.
Stem cell therapy for joints addresses joint pain by rebuilding your bone, cartilage and soft tissue from the inside out, naturally. Using stem cells collected from your own body — usually from your bone marrow or adipose fat tissue — New York stem cell specialists can help your body repair itself.
The Science Behind Regenerative Medicine Therapy
Regenerative cell therapy, as the name implies, works on the cellular level to rebuild your joints. Stem cells are unformed, immature cells your body produces to replace old or injured cells. From your bone marrow, they pass through your bloodstream to go where your body is hurting. There, they grow into specific cells, as needed, to heal the wound. This healing process occurs throughout your lifetime.
As you age, though, your body finds it more and more difficult to deliver stem cells where they’re needed. The process of regenerative cell therapy or joint regeneration therapy simply aids the natural process by injecting your own stem cells where you need them. The results of a single injection can last for weeks, as stem cell joint therapy encourages new cell growth and decreases tissue inflammation.
Healing for All Your Joints
Regenerative medicine therapy improves and strengthens the joints of your body over time. It doesn’t mask your symptoms or provide temporary relief; stem cell therapy for joints actually repairs the damage. You may experience partial or complete recovery, as outlined in a series of case studies by the National Institutes of Health.
Joints that can benefit from stem cell joint therapy include:
Regenerative Cellular Therapy for Injuries
If you lead an active lifestyle, you crave full mobility and pain-free days, no matter what you decide to do or where your life takes you. But even if you’re no longer as active as you were when you were 25, you still want to get around without pain or limitations. If you injure your knee, for example, it doesn’t matter how you injured it; only that you wish to regain your life from before the injury.
Joint regeneration therapy is a solution with advantages over surgery. Regenerative cellular therapy can repair the damage from:
- Knee injuries
- Hip injuries
- Foot and ankle injuries
- Shoulder and rotator cuff injuries
- Rotator Cuff Tendonitis and Tear
- Meniscus tear
- Back, neck and disc injuries
- Hand and wrist injuries
- Elbow injuries, including tennis elbow
Stem Cell Joint Therapy for Pain
Injuries can happen to anyone, but age brings infirmity for many. Fortunately, regenerative cellular therapy addresses the effects of age, too. Stem cell therapy for joints helps ease pain at the source by repairing the joint from the inside. Talk to your NYC doctor or specialist about stem cell treatments if you suffer from:
- Chronic back pain
- Chronic neck pain
- Arthritis in your knee or ankle
- Hip arthritis
- Unexplained hip pain
- Shoulder arthritis
In most cases, regenerative medicine therapy reduces pain significantly, but in some cases, the pain completely disappears. Your results are tied to many factors, including your level of pain when you start and the skill of your Brooklyn NYC stem cell doctor. Ask your doctor to determine if you’re a good candidate for joint regeneration therapy.
Who Benefits from Regenerative Medicine Therapy?
While you always may get some benefit from stem cell joint therapy, the procedure is best used for issues that are deemed reversible by your doctor. You may be an ideal candidate for regenerative cell therapy if you’re otherwise in good health. You can be any age, as the process works naturally using your own stem cells. In addition, specific conditions lend themselves to the treatment, including:
- Osteoarthritis in your joints
- Acute tendonitis or a partially torn tendon
- Rotator cuff and other soft tissue problems
- A joint injury that’s slow to heal
- Degenerative disc disease and other some back issues
Your doctor may recommend against stem cell therapy for joints if you:
- Suffer from any kind of blood disease
- Have certain forms of cancer
- Are taking blood-thinning medications
- Have an infection for which you’re currently receiving treatment
- Have been diagnosed with diabetes or hypothyroidism
Regenerative therapy delivers immediate results and continues to work long after your procedure is completed. Stop your pain and improve your mobility. Make an appointment with a stem cell doctor for a consultation. Find out if you’re eligible.
