Many professional athletes have undergone stem cell therapy as an alternative to surgery in order to get back on the field. But even if you don’t make a living playing sports, stem cell therapy might be right for you, too.
The treatment works the same for Olympians as it does for anyone just hoping to get through the day pain free. In fact, stem cell therapy is perfect for regular people whose pain hasn’t been eased by medicine or physical therapy.
It’s non-surgical regenerative medicine that’s wise to explore before going under the knife.
At Spine Specialists of Michigan, stem cell therapy involves a 20-minute outpatient procedure that’s done at our metro Detroit office in Bingham Farms. We take stem cells from umbilical cord blood rich in growth factors and inject them into an area of pain like bone, muscle, tissue or nerves. The stem cells move to the area of pain and help control the inflammatory response. They increase blood flow, bringing nutrients necessary to the healing process into the injured area. They also reproduce quickly and can turn into cells with specialized functions, even forming new tissue and blood vessels.
Benefits include reduced pain and increased mobility. The treatment is perfect for dealing with nagging strains and sprains, muscle tears, rotator cuff injuries, back and neck pain, tendonitis or nerve injuries. It also helps with arthritis, diabetes, asthma, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
If you’re dealing with these conditions or any other kind of pain, call us at 248-792-9496 to schedule a free consultation. Anybody who wants to improve their quality of life could be a good candidate for stem cell therapy.
It’s a non-invasive procedure that helps the body heal itself.
With stem cell therapy, you can experience accelerated recovery and a return to active living. Patients typically begin to feel improvement in four to six weeks, or even sooner, and the stem cells can continue healing for up to a year.
Follow-up treatments can be scheduled every 6 to 12 months, if necessary, delaying or eliminating the need for surgery or other pain management procedures.
