Stem cell therapy is minimally-invasive alternative for patients who have been suffering from orthopedic conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, sports-related injuries and spine disease and not been able to find relief through traditional methods. Utilizing the regenerative cells found in your own adipose tissue (body fat), Aspen Regenerative Cell Therapy tackles the underlying cause of pain while providing an opportunity for lasting healing and relief.
These adipose-derived stem cells have the ability to repair or replace cartilage, bone or other tissue and decrease inflammation. This procedure can also stimulate new blood vessel growth for better blood flow to the affected area(s) and address scarring.
COMMON ORTHOPEDIC CONDITIONS
Disorders of the joints, connective ligaments and muscles, cartilage, and tendons affect many people every day and can be accompanied by symptoms that range from reduced function to excruciating pain.
Commonly called “wear-and-tear arthritis,” osteoarthritis is a result of the protective cartilage on the ends of your bones wearing down over time, giving rise to pain, some degree of disability or drug dependence. Osteoarthritis can restrict the activities of a full, normal life by causing pain and stiffness in the hands, neck, lower back, knees and hips. The regular course of orthopedic treatments may include simple ice and rest, pain relievers or narcotics, cortisone injections or surgery, each with mixed results.
Scientific research indicates that most orthopedic issues are caused fundamentally by inflammation. Utilizing adult stem cells from your own adipose fat tissue has the ability to reduce inflammation and treat:
- Stiffness/joint pain
- Degenerative spine disease
- Chronic tendonitis
STEM CELL THERAPY FOR ORTHOPEDIC ISSUES
Mesenchymal stem cells, or MSCs are a type of stem cells stored in your adipose (fat) tissue. These cells are like “tiny physicians” who diagnose and treat individual areas of the body in need of special attention.
MSCs are commonly called repair cells for their ability to heal. In addition to reducing inflammation and scarring, their primary mechanisms are:
- The halting of destructive, abnormal immune responses
- Creation of new blood vessels
- Prevention of continued premature tissue/cell loss
- Stimulation of tissue regeneration
- Acceleration of tissue repair
