Understanding Stem Cell Therapy
This type of therapy is considered regenerative medicine. This means that instead of simply treating symptoms, this therapy actually attempts to regenerate lost tissue so that the body can heal. This is accomplished by injecting the body with healthy stem cells in the areas where damage has occurred.
Scientists believe that stem cells are the foundational cells that your body uses to build tissue. Stem cells are abundant in the bone marrow, blood, and muscles.
What Can I Expect from Stem Cell Therapy?
During a treatment, a provider will inject healthy stem cells into the area in which you are experiencing pain. The stem cells can also be injected in the site of tissue degeneration. Once the cells are in your body, it will trigger the body’s natural regeneration response. This will result in a decrease in pain and an increase in natural healing.
What Conditions Is Stem Cell Injection Used For?
SCT can be used for a variety of conditions. Some of the most common conditions treated with this therapy are chronic neck or back pain, arthritis, and joint injuries.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
