Tasks that are usually very simple are a nightmare if you have pain in your wrists. Plus, the soreness can radiate to your fingers and up your arm. The most common causes include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Dequervains Tenosynovitis
- Trigger finger
- TFCC tears
- Repetitive stress injuries from daily work or sporting activities
- Impact injuries like a fracture or a sprain
Fortunately, these ailments can be cared for through stem cell treatments that encourage damaged tissue to heal.
Stem Cell Therapy for Pain
Stem cell therapy is a safe method to effectively quicken the body’s natural healing process and alleviate pain. You might be able to avoid hand and wrist surgery altogether and recover mobility with this simple, non-surgical procedure. You would also save money because stem cell treatments are cheaper than surgery.
Additionally, the therapy is non-controversial because we extract the stem cells from your fat or bone cells, so they have nothing to do with animals.
How Stem Cell Therapy Works
Your body already has stem cells, which serve as the body’s “repairman” cells. They are on standby until an injury occurs. Then they go to the affected area and transform into any cell the body needs to repair and restore the damaged tissue.
Stem cell therapy acts as a catalyst for cell repair by adding an extra boost of stem cells into the damaged area. It is a short, in-office procedure that requires minimal recovery time, involving only some injections of stem cells to the wrist.
At Regenerative Orthopaedics, we can harvest the stem cells, filter them through a centrifuge and perform the injections all in one visit.
Stem Cell Therapy Paired with PRP
Including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections in your treatment can help reinforce the activity of the stem cells. Ask about pairing the two procedures together when you come in for a consultation.
Do not let wrist pain complicate your life. Dr. Steven Struhl at Regenerative Orthopaedics offers stem cell therapy and PRP for pain at our NYC and White Plains clinics. He is highly experienced at treating hand and wrist injuries using stem cell therapy and eagerly awaits your call to help.
