Stem cell therapy is a form of minimally invasive medicine that aims to restore and regenerate injured and inflamed tissues in your body. At Midwest Integrated Medical Center, an injection of stem cell products is used on your injured joint, muscle, tendon, or ligament to reduce inflammation and encourage the tissues in the area to heal so you can be pain-free and function more normally.
How does stem cell therapy work?
Stem cells are primitive cells that can become muscle, bone, cartilage, or ligament cells. They do this through the processes of differentiation and self-renewal. Through differentiation, when stem cells are injected into an injured area, they turn into muscle, bone, cartilage, and ligament cells based on which cells are needed to heal the area.
Stem cells also self-renew, meaning that they can make copies of themselves to produce enough new, healthy cells to repair your existing damaged cells. Through the processes of differentiation and self-renewal, stem cells also have an anti-inflammatory effect on the injured tissues.
At Midwest Integrated Medical Center, your doctor uses stem cell therapy for a wide array of joint and soft tissue injuries that cause pain and inflammation. Common areas to use stem cell therapy include:
Your doctor determines if you’re a candidate for stem cells based on your medical history, overall health, and symptoms. In some cases, stem cells may be beneficial if you’ve had a previous surgery or treatment that was unsuccessful.
Your initial stem cell therapy session lasts approximately 15 minutes. Your doctor cleans your skin, carefully injects stem cells into the injured tissues, and bandages the injection site. You can return to your normal activities the same day without the need for anesthesia, antibiotics, or recovery time.
In most cases, you can expect to see improvements in your pain levels and mobility over the next 1-3 months. Some may even experience a reduction in their symptoms as soon as two weeks after treatment.
Based on how you heal after your first stem cell treatment, your doctor may recommend a seconreatd session after several months if your condition is complex.
