15 Jul Stem cell therapy for joint pain
If you’re suffering from chronic joint pain, there is hope. An ever-increasing number of doctors are turning to stem cell therapy to treat joint pain in order to bring relief to patients with painful degenerative joint conditions.
Regenerative medicine has been around for a number of years. Ever since, regenerative medicine, especially stem cell therapy, has continued to gain momentum in the field of pain management and healing.
Without regenerative medicine, doctors and their patients can treat only the patient’s symptoms. Joint pain patients often take large amounts of pain medication, both over-the-counter and prescribed, to relieve joint pain, which never goes away completely.
NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and surgery are the treatments of choice for chronic joint pain, whether it is caused due to injury, wear and tear or overuse.
The basic idea behind stem cell therapy is that the joints undergo repair which is the direct result of the body healing itself. Stem cell therapy achieves that by using cells harvested from the patient’s own body or stem cells. These stem cells are capable of becoming a variety of cell types such as muscle, blood cells, brain cells, tissue, etc.
To heal joint pain, stem cells retrieved from a patient’s adipose or fat tissue are injected back into their own body, at the injured joint. These stem cells can now transform into new cartilage, promoting natural healing at a cellular level.
To learn more about adipose or fat derived stem cell therapy or stromal vascular fraction (SVF), call the leading Chicago stem cell treatment center, The Regenerative Stem Cell Institute at 855-340-7836 Now. The Chicago stem cell treatment center specializes in the use of adipose (fat) derived stem cells to advance successful outcomes and quality care in the area of regenerative medicine.
