Regenerative Medicine Q & A
What is regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine utilizes human cell regeneration to promote repair in damaged muscles, tissues, and joints. When new cells regenerate, they replace injured tissue by stimulating your body’s natural healing response. Unlike traditional surgery, oral medications, or injectable pain medications, regenerative medicine heals injuries at the source.
What is the most common type of regenerative medicine?
Regenerative therapy is the most common type of regenerative medicine. It’s a nonsurgical alternative for pain relief. What makes stem cells unique is that they have the ability to develop into many different types of cells.
This means they can develop into cells that repair tissue damage, which stimulates your body’s ability to heal injuries and restore function to joints and muscles. In fact, stem cells can repeatedly divide and regenerate. They also have the ability to become specialized cells nearly anywhere in the body as muscle cells, brain cells, blood cells, and more.
Which conditions can stem cell therapy treat?
Practitioners use regenerative therapy to repair damage left behind by a variety of conditions, including:
- Knee pain
- Chronic shoulder pain
- Muscle pain
- Damaged connective tissue
- Torn meniscus
- Rotator cuff damage
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Degenerative disc disease
- Tension neck syndrome
- Jaw joint damage
- Chronic back or neck pain
- Hip pain
Once stem cells trigger your body’s healing response, you can begin to regain function and mobility in your injured tissues.
What happens during stem cell therapy?
SC Stem Cell’s primary goal is to reduce pain, inflammation, and scar tissue while increasing mobility and function. The team does this by injecting stem cells directly into the area where you feel pain.
How many sessions you need depends entirely on your condition, the severity of your pain, and the amount of damage in your tissues. Most patients require at least three to start experiencing lasting pain relief.
