Stem cells are amazing and are the only cells that can develop into many different cells inside the body. Stem cells can renew themselves over a long period of time and can become specialized depending on where they are injected. Stem cell therapy is becoming a useful therapy for those experiencing knee and shoulder arthritis pain, and for tendonitis injuries.
Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis
The research being conducted as to the effectiveness of arthritis treatment is very promising. Research shows that stem cell therapy can help develop new cartilage cells and treat inflammation. Stem cells also slow the loss of cartilage and ease pain in the affected joint. Since the stem cells are taken from the patient, the risk of rejection is minimal. The wonderful thing is that there have not been any major adverse reactions reported due to stem cell therapy treatment.
Stem Cell Therapy for Tendonitis
Stem cell therapy is proving to be an effective treatment for the pain associated with tendonitis and can help promote healing to the damaged tendon. Achilles tendonitis, caused by inflammation to the Achilles tendon, which connects the calf muscle to the heel bone, is a common injury that can be treated with stem cell therapy. Stem cells can accelerate the healing process by reducing inflammation to the injured area. Some patients report pain relief just a few days after treatment.
Research surrounding stem cell therapy is rapidly evolving and continues to reveal ways that stem cells can be used to promote healing and reduce pain. Dr. Steven Struhl and the team at Regenerative Orthopaedics closely follow the developments and can bring this pain relieving treatment to you.
