How Stem Cell Treatments Are Changing the World of Pain Management

You’ve probably heard about stem cells at some point, but did you know they can heal injuries? That’s because these cells have the unique ability to divide and become any kind of cell in your body, including bones, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. This power makes them a remarkable asset when it comes to pain management.

At Advanced Integrative Medical our team offers the most advanced regenerative treatments available for managing bone and joint pain. If you’re looking for pain management solutions, visit us in Redondo Beach, California, to see if stem cell treatments can help.

What sets stem cells apart

You have several different kinds of cells in your body, but stem cells are the only ones that can become other types of tissue, making them an ally in healing. When we take healthy stem cells and form a high concentration of them, we can inject them into parts of your body to repair damage or disease. 

This makes stem cell therapy a powerful form of regenerative medicine, which focuses on healing your body as opposed to merely addressing your symptoms.

Stem cell treatments offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Speeding up the healing process
  • Increasing function, flexibility, and range of motion
  • Reducing nerve damage
  • Increasing collagen
  • Helping to prevent scar tissue formation

By repairing damaged tissue and eliminating disease, stem cell treatments can also significantly reduce your pain and eliminate or lessen your need for medication.

Conditions that respond to stem cell treatments

Since stem cells can become any cell, we recommend these regenerative medicine treatments for a wide range of pain conditions, including:

  • Sports injuries
  • Tennis elbow
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Degenerative diseases, like osteoarthritis and bursitis
  • Joint pain
  • Tendon tears, especially to the rotator cuff, ACL, and meniscus
  • Ligament sprains
  • Bulging or herniated discs

And, because stem cell treatments heal damage within your body, they can even help you avoid or delay surgery.

Stem cells in action

Some of the most common places to find stem cells include bone marrow, fat tissue, and amniotic fluid. 

During your appointment, we clean the treatment area and apply a local anesthetic. Then, we inject your stem cell solution into the site. This minimally invasive pain management solution is safe and effective, and it requires little downtime. 

It’s common to experience a little inflammation or mild redness in the area. This happens because your stem cells trigger the healing process, so your immune system kicks into gear. 

Gradually, as new tissue generates and your body heals, you’ll start to notice changes in the treatment site. After the first month, you’ll see significant improvements, including increased mobility and less pain.

Most men and women see remarkable pain relief with a single stem cell treatment, and some see results for years. However, we might recommend more than one treatment, depending on your unique condition.
