Get back into the swing of things!

One in every three people suffer from chronic joint pain or condition, and it’s growing. Soon, it will be one in every two! That means the odds are you’re dealing with it and may have already had a consult suggesting surgery to fix it. Stem cell therapy can be an alternative.

Over 54 million adults suffer from arthritis. Stem cell therapy can help!

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA) is joint inflammation due to the deterioration of cartilage, which causes bones to rub against each other. People with OA suffer from stiffness, pain, and decreased range of motion in the joint(s). While there is no known cure for OA, treatment focuses on pain reduction through medication, physical therapy, or occupational therapy. Stem cell therapy offers a potential treatment alternative that exploits the anti-inflammatory and healing effects of mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA is joint inflammation due to an autoimmune process where the body’s immune system attacks its joints. People with RA suffer from flares of pain, fatigue, and warm, swollen, and reddish joints. Chronic inflammation can damage joints, thus threatment is focused on reducing inflammation and showing the progression of the disease. Stem cell therapy offers a potential treatment alternative that exploits the anti-inflammatory and healing effects of mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors.

We offer stem cell therapies for many orthopedic conditions.

  • Shoulder Repair

    Rotator cuff injuries, arthritis of the shoulder joints, and other sources of chronic shoulder pain may be responsive to stem cell therapy. Stem cells aim to diminish inflammation in addition to repairing and regenerating affected joints.

    One new study investigated the clinical outcomes of the BMC injections for treatment of shoulder pain and disability due to osteoarthritis (OA) and rotator cuff tears in a treatment registry population. READ MORE

    Because MSCs can differentiate into bone, cartilage, muscle, tendon, and ligament tissue and can use paracrine and other effects to elicit significant changes in injured tissues, their use for treating orthopaedic conditions holds significant promise. READ MORE

  • Spinal Injury

    Injuries to the spine can be due to a number of different causes such as overt trauma, degenerative disc disease, and arthritis. Those that suffer from spinal injuries experience debilitating back and neck pain. Stem cell therapy offers potential alleviation from daily pain as it addresses inflammation and tissue repair and regeneration.

  • Knee Conditions

    Knee arthritis is a form of degenerative joint disease that affects millions of Americans. There are several alternatives to knee surgery such as injection of cartilage substitutes or steroids. Steroid injection is not favored as a viable long term treatment since the steroids actually damage local tissues over time. Certain types of knee problems including significant meniscal and ligamentous injuries may not be amenable to regenerative therapy. It is important to evaluate each individual case to assess likelihood of success with attempting regenerative therapy.

  • Hip Conditions

    Hip arthritis is a form of degenerative joint disease that affects millions of Americans. Patients try to delay hip replacement surgery for as long as possible and often seek hip injections with steroids. Steroid injection is not favored as a viable long term treatment since the steroids actually damage local tissues over time. Certain types of hip problems including certain fractures and injuries may not be amenable to cell therapy. It is important to evaluate each individual case to assess likelihood of success with attempting regenerative therapy. Stem cells are injected using local anesthesia typically using ultrasound or fluoroscopy to ensure that the injection is accurate. This is all done as an outpatient visit.

  • Joint Repair

    Elbow and Hand problems from arthritis of joints of the upper extremity is a form of degenerative joint disease that disables millions of Americans. Certain types of elbow and wrist joint problems including certain tendon problems and ligamentous injuries may not be amenable to cell therapy. It is important to evaluate each individual case to assess likelihood of success with attempting regenerative therapy.

  • Lower Back Pain

    Back arthritis and Spine Disease have two common problems causing back pain, degenerative disc disease and facet arthropathy (a type of arthritis). Not all disc problems are amenable to regenerative therapy and patient selection is very important to optimize outcomes. Many forms of back pain are actually due to arthritis of the facet joints (small joints where vertebra connect to their adjacent neighboring vertebrae).
