Stem Cell Therapy
Those who suffer from injured, damaged or inflamed ligaments or joints will tell you that it is an awful pain to deal with. But as medical research is developing, new techniques are being introduced all of the time. One relatively new area of research is transforming the way that we are dealing with medical treatments is in stem cells.
Stem cells stimulate healing and are found all over the body. They can sense when there is damage and come to the rescue to kick start the body´s healing response. For some reason, people sometimes get stuck with an injury that doesn’t heal properly, as there aren’t enough stem cells reaching the injured area, and this is where stem cell therapy comes in.
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cell therapy is when a good doctor such as Dr Kaplan takes a small amount of fat using liposuction from the body. This will allow the doctor to then harvest the stem cells, ready to be injected into the area that needs them. The stem cells can then help to regenerate the damaged tissue, allowing patients recover quickly from pains and injuries and enjoy long lasting relief. By speeding up the healing of damaged tissue, bone, cartilage, tendons and ligaments, you can reduce down time and speed up the recovery process.
What can Stem Cell Therapy help with?
Stem Cell Therapy is a good alternative to invasive surgery as a pain management solution, and can be used to help with a number of conditions including:
- Shoulder pain and tendinitis
- Chronic back and neck pain
- Achilles Tendinitis
- Non-healing fractures
- Knee pain, osteoarthritis and meniscal tears
- Plantar fasciitis and foot pain
- Wrist, ankle and elbow pain
- Torn rotator cuff
- Labral tears and hip arthritis
The result of Stem Cell Therapy will be a quick relief of pain, which will last for various amounts of time depending on the severity and type of injury, as well as the amount of time that you have been suffering it. It will, of course continue to improve as the healing process continues. Stem Cell Therapy can also reduce the potential need for surgery by getting the recovery process started before the tissue is irreversibly damaged.
For people who are keen to avoid surgery, or at least reduce the severity of their injury before surgery, Stem Cell Therapy could be a great option. It should be remembered that Stem Cell Therapy just introduces more of the cells which stimulate the body´s own repairing mechanisms, so only certain conditions can be treated in this way. For those people who are compatible, however, Stem Cell Therapy can be an excellent solution to quick tissue repair and pain relief.
It is important that the procedure is carried out by a qualified surgeon such as Dr Kaplan to ensure that it is carried out quickly, effectively and without causing any further damage.
