Stem Cell Therapy and Treatment
Many chronic pain conditions are caused by degenerative disease or injuries. While the body has the ability to heal tissue, it is not always effective in regeneration on its own. When torn ligaments, damaged tendons, deteriorating cartilage and other tissue problems cause inflammation and pain, regenerative medicine works to help stimulate the body’s ability to repair itself. One type of regenerative medicine we offer at Allied Pain & Spine Institute is stem cell therapy and treatment, which is available at our clinic in Mountain View.
When disease, aging or injuries cause tissue damage, the result is often inflammation, pain and reduced mobility. To treat conditions like degenerative disc disease or arthritis, anti-inflammatory medications or surgery has often been needed. While these are still used and can help with chronic pain management, regenerative medicine, like stem cell therapy, is offering a different approach. Stem cell therapy can help repair damaged tissues with biological factors derived from the patient’s own body. This reduces risks and side effects, helping the body naturally repair damage without invasive intervention.
How Stem Cell Treatment Works
Stem cells can be found throughout the body, but they are not easily delivered to the areas that need them the most. Stem cell therapy works by retrieving these adult stem cells from bone marrow and concentrating them in a lab. Different stem cells can help repair various types of tissue. Some can provide tendon or ligament tissue repair, while others are blank cells for cartilage restoration. When combined with concentrated platelets, also harvested from the patient, stem cells can be injected to the precise area that needs regeneration.
Stem cell treatments have been effective in improving healing in a variety of joint and soft tissue conditions. Arthritis, spine disorders, degenerative disc disease and soft tissue injuries have benefited from the use of stem cell injections. Unlike other treatments that only focus on pain relief, stem cell therapy works to restore healthy tissue. This can slow down degenerative diseases and help patients delay or avoid more invasive treatments like surgery.
