Amniotic stem cell therapy is one of the great achievements of modern-day science, medicine and technology. In the past, the only recourse for certain injuries and conditions was surgery. However, today you can improve joint health, mobility, reduce joint pain, and prevent costly and invasive surgeries with amniotic stem cell therapy. If you are suffering from joint health problems (such as chronic pain) and think your only alternative is surgery, think again. Call our Texas Spine & Sports Therapy Center today to find out if you can improve your joint health with stem cell therapy!
There are countless problems that can happen with your joints. There are an estimated 360 joints in the human body, which leaves 360 joints that could possibly have a problem. One of the most common joint health problems is arthritis. There are various forms of arthritis, but osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the two most common types. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that around 22.7% of adults in the U.S. have some form of arthritis. That equates to an estimated 54.4 million people with arthritis.
Osteoarthritis is also known as “degenerative joint disease” and it is the most common chronic condition of the joints according to the Arthritis Foundation. This joint health condition is when the cartilage (or cushion between the joints) breaks down over time due to age or wear and tear. This breakdown of that soft cushion causes stiff joints, swelling, and especially chronic pain. Rheumatoid arthritis is another joint health problem that is actually considered an autoimmune disease. This is because the body’s immune system (which normally protects your health), mistakenly attacks your joints, thinking that they are attacking foreign substances. This causes pain and inflammation of the joints, which can damage your cartilage without proper treatment.
At our office, we seek to treat joint health problems (as well as countless other health problems) through the most natural means that are effective. One of our services that is effective for helping joint health problems is stem cell therapy. Stem cells are a type of cell that you already have naturally in your body. Every tissue, organ and part of your body is made up of millions and billions of cells. You have heart cells, blood cells, skin cells and more. Stem cells are a type of neutral cell that is involved in healing and everybody has them. This cell takes an active role in healing when you have a joint health issue or problem with your bones, tissues, organs, ligaments, muscles, tendons and more.
When you are injured, your body immediately goes to work to repair the damaged tissue. It does that throughs specialized cells, which are your stem cells. Stem cells can take on the characteristics of any type of cell in the body. That means, if you have a muscle problem, a stem cell can become a muscle cell to help heal you. If you have a joint health problem, a stem cell can turn into the type of cell you need to help health that joint health problem. These cells are amazing at helping your body heal naturally. However, the amount of stem cells you have in your body decreases as you age, which is why stem cell therapy exists.
With stem cell therapy, we use amniotic stem cells to help heal your body. Stem cells are found in every human body, but they are also found in much higher quantities in amniotic fluid. Many mothers donate amniotic sacs to centers after a baby has been born. From there, we can use the stem cells found in this amniotic fluid for your treatment. Basically, we take a large concentration of stem cells (or neutral cells) and we inject those cells into an area that is hurting you. For millions of people, the joints are an area that causes them daily pain. For people that have arthritis, joint pain is a daily constant.
We can inject stem cells directly into the affected joints so that your healing can begin. With a high dosage of stem cells, your body has an abundance of cells it can use to fix a damaged joint naturally. It is the only non-invasive way you can help heal your joints outside of surgery. We love stem cell therapy because it is a natural method of healing that won’t cost you months of your life and a large amount of money like surgery can. Stem cell therapy injections are also similar to cortisone injections, as they soothe pain and decrease inflammation as soon as you receive them. That soothing comfort is something that our patients love. If chronic joint pain is limiting your daily routine or preventing you from activities you enjoy, regenerative medicine through stem cell therapy can help you!
At Texas Spine & Sports Therapy Center, we seek natural methods of pain relief and healing. Your body is incredibly capable of healing from small injuries or chronic ones. Sometimes, you have to help your body get to that place of healing, and you can do that through stem cell therapy.
