Regenerative Medicine (Stem Cell Therapy) Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

If you’ve already tried the usual ways to treat pain – rest, anti-inflammatory drugs, physical therapy, and more – regenerative medicine could be what your body needs. This groundbreaking new medical field leverages stem cells to help your body grow the new tissue it needs to fully repair any damage, putting a permanent stop to your pain.

Regenerative medicine has been successful in treating muscle, joint, bone, nerve, and soft tissue pain. It can minimize pain in the back or neck and pain from knee or shoulder arthritis or neuropathy. In short, regenerative medicine can treat pain virtually anywhere on your body.

How are stem cells used in regenerative medicine?

Stem cells are essentially blank cells with the power to turn into a number of different cell types. When applied to areas of your body where you need to grow new, healthy tissue to put a stop to your pain, stem cells convert to the cell type needed to trigger the growth and healing your body needs. These stem cells can deliver a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Pain reduction
  • Faster tissue healing, including joint repair
  • Increased range of motion
  • Increased bone density
  • Reduced risk of future injury
  • No need for local or general anesthetic

Are stem cells safe?

Stem cells are extremely safe. In fact, your own stem cells can be used in regenerative medicine to ensure you don’t have any adverse reactions.

When compared against your other pain treatment options, stem cells are far and away the safest, least invasive option for your body. While surgery could correct your pain, it’s an invasive process with lengthy healing time. It can expose you to infection, and the resulting scarring can limit your flexibility.

If you’re looking for a less intensive treatment, you may have considered steroid injections. But these, too, come with risks. Eventually, the cortisone can degrade your bone density and cartilage. While steroid injections can deliver immediate pain relief, that can ultimately create more pain in your body down the road.

You shouldn’t have to live your life encumbered by pain. To learn more about how regenerative medicine can give you permanent relief, call CITY Health Services or book your appointment online.
