Autologous stem cell therapy is one of the most significant advances in advanced regenerative medicine.
“Autologous” simply means the harvested stem cells are your own; a perfect match which your body will not reject. The human body has a built-in healing process.
Regenerative Biologics (stem cell injections) are delivering amazing results in the field of medicine. There is so much information about stem cells that we do not fully understand and health professionals are learning more and more about them every year. Autologous stem cell therapy triggers healing in the injured area to help restore healthy bone, ligaments, tendons, and range of motion -- and reduce pain. In this non-surgical procedure, your stem cells are harvested and injected into the injured area to stimulate your body’s natural healing processes. Full Range Ortho is one of the leading destinations for Los Angeles stem cell therapy.
Los Angeles Stem Cell Therapy
The majority of active stem cells in your body are found in the bone marrow, adipose tissue (fat), or blood. Stem cells have the unique ability to transform into any type of cell in the body, and in this transformation, to rebuild and restore a damaged area. In Los Angeles stem cell therapy has been used on patients who have undergone cancer treatments for years, it is now one of the most sought-after, effective treatments for a range of orthopedic pains, injuries and conditions.
Stem Cell Therapy for Injured Athletes
Stem cell therapy is often used by professional athletes who need to return to peak performance as quickly as possible. To harvest the stem cells, some of your own blood is extracted and then processed in a specialized machine to separate the stem cells from the other blood products. This high concentration of stem cells is then injected into the injured area to stimulate natural healing for the damaged area.
Stem Cell Therapy Techniques for Pain
If you suffer the following types of pain, you may be a candidate for this advanced, non-surgical treatment option:
- Joint pain
- Knee pain
- Back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Neck pain
- Tennis elbow
- Torn or strained ligaments
Minimally Invasive, Non-Surgical Orthopedic Healing
In the past, orthopedic injuries, including joints, back, ligaments, tendons and other systems were commonly treated with painkillers, rest, or surgical procedures. Dr. Nini is committed to providing his patients with the most effective, advanced, non-surgical treatments, including autologous stem cell therapy treatments.
Stem Cell Therapy to Stimulate Healing
Rather than working against your body, this treatment works with your body to repair damaged areas through triggering the natural healing processes. Your body has a built-in system that performs this function, but as the years pass, it starts to perform less efficiently.
A small child will heal within days, and a person in their 30s, 40s, and 50s will notice it requires far more time. The use of autologous stem cells makes it possible to restore your body’s natural regenerative processes to help restore the affected area and reduce pain.
Joint Pain: State-of-the-Art, Non-Surgical Treatment
Many athletes face dealing with painful injuries and need to return to peak performance as quickly as possible. They want to avoid surgery, a long recovery time, and the risk of damage and limited range of motion.
Stem cell therapy is often the first intervention to assist those with sports injuries to heal more quickly from the following conditions:
- Tendon injuries
- Painful joints
- Cartilage damage
- Back injuries
- Hip injuries
- Knee injuries
- Hand injuries
- Bone fracture healing
While some injuries must be treated with surgery, using stem cell therapy in conjunction with the surgical procedure can help the treated area heal more quickly, thoroughly, and with less pain. Whether you need surgery or have the option to treat an injury or pain with this alternative, at Full Range Ortho, we can help.
What is a stem cell?
A stem cell has unique qualities, among which is the ability to replicate. It can transform into any type of tissue. Adult stem cells are present within the body, in highest concentration in the bone marrow. Called “progenitor cells,” they are not busy until some area of the body is injured, when they travel to that area to help it heal. One of the most exciting developments in regenerative medicine, at Full Range Ortho, we often advise this procedure to help our patients heal more quickly and suffer less pain during the process.
Why undergo autologous stem cell therapy?
If you have suffered an injury, or are constantly in pain, it is clear that something has gone wrong; the body is not healing as it should. Many people want to find out more about the latest advances in regenerative medicine, and choose to undergo stem cell therapy to address these issues, rather than opting for a surgical procedure with an uncertain outcome. This treatment has become increasingly popular and Full Range Ortho is one of the top providers of stem cell therapy Los Angeles has to offer.
How does stem cell therapy work?
This pioneer treatment has been found to produce impressive results. The success of treatment is in part based upon the number of stem cells injected into the damaged area. At Full Range Ortho, we inject a high concentration of natural stem cells, harvested from your own body, to achieve the results for which we have become known.
How long will it take for stem cell therapy to work?
Every person and condition is different. It will require some time for your body to regenerate, often weeks or months, depending upon the level of the injury. While it requires patience, remember that it is likely that it would require even longer to recover from surgery, with results that vary widely -- particularly in range of motion.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, patients require only one treatment, but only a personal evaluation of your condition will truly allow us to know what is needed in your case. Some patients will respond better to several injections of stem cells into the injured area of your body.
Beyond Your Treatment…
Every patient can expect a customized treatment plan – as each patient, their physiology, injuries, level of pain, and condition is unique. The first step is a full evaluation of your injuries or pain so Dr. Nini can create the most effective treatment plan for you – including the option of stem cell therapy.
Beyond our range of the most advanced non-surgical treatments, we are committed to individualized care, from start to finish.
