There is no doubt something truly incredible about stem cells. Found in bone marrow, blood and fatty deposits, stem cells can regenerate throughout the body to transform into any type of cell. Because of that incredible versatility, stem cells enhance regeneration and healing by rebuilding the damage with fresh, healthy cells.
Stems cells are being used at an increasing rate due to the many positive benefits. Because stem cells are taken from a patient’s own body, there are no issues regarding availability or compatibility regarding the cells. The patient gives a simple blood donation, and then the stem cells are removed from the rest of the blood and saved for treatment.
Athletes Often Benefit from Stem Cell Treatment
Professional athletes are often given stem cell therapy because of the rapid healing they produce. Because of the faster return to the sports arena, athletes of all sorts have benefited from stem cell therapy in treating all the following conditions:
- Back injuries
- Hip injuries
- Knee injuries
- Hand injuries
- Bone fracture healing
- Tendon injuries
- Painful joints
- Cartilage damage
How Long Does Stem Cell Therapy Last?
The length of stem cell therapy and the number of treatments needed will vary according to each patient’s injury and healing time. Some heal very quickly. Others take longer but still see a faster healing time in most situations.
FullRange Spine & Ortho believes strongly in stem cell therapy. They see autologous (meaning from your own body) stem cell therapy as one of the most substantial advances in regenerative medicine. Because the uses of stem cell therapy are so wide, the future is wide open as to what may come.
At FullRange Spine & Ortho, our team of doctors look deeper and search for the cause of pain and loss of motion from an injury. Then, we see ways to treat our patients with homeopathic, non-surgical treatments, rather than immediately looking to surgery as a cure-all. We believe that injuries will often show an excellent response to our therapies, including PRP and stem cell therapy.
