Reducing Knee and Joint Pain with Stem Cell Therapy
Most of us will experience joint pain at some point in our lives. Knee pain is the most common complaint, particularly amongst those who have been involved in athletics. In some cases, pain may be mild and short-term, though it can still impact negatively on your quality of life. In more severe instances, it can be debilitating.
Pain and swelling in the joints can be caused by a number of conditions, including arthritis and osteoarthritis, bursitis, and sprains, or it may result from a sports injury. Wear and tear is also a contributing factor, especially as you grow older. The aging process alters both your vulnerability to injury and your body’s ability to heal itself, making pain, swelling, and stiffness in the joints more likely.
Stem Cell Therapy: Helping Your Body Repair Naturally
Prolonged pain can drastically interfere with every aspect of your life, reducing mobility and causing discomfort even during periods of restfulness. If you experience knee or joint pain, stem cell therapy is an effective alternative to surgery. The procedure is minimally invasive, and many patients experience noticeable results after just one treatment.
How does it work? During a short session at our office, we extract stem cells from your fat tissue or bone marrow in a safe and comfortable procedure performed under local anesthetic. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that are able to develop into specialized cells such as muscle or tendon. When injected into the site of injury, they assist in renewing the damaged tissues, while also sending signals that encourage other cells to join the healing process. The result is a gradual decrease in pain and improvement of movement at the joint.
Stem cell therapy enhances your body’s ability to repair and recover naturally—helping you get back to enjoying life. To maximize results, consider IV Vitamin Therapy to detox the body before your treatment.
