Soft tissue injuries can result in a great deal of pain. Thanks to medical and scientific advances, stem cell therapy is becoming better understood. It can help encourage many things, including soft tissue repair. If you are dealing with chronic pain or are suffering from an injury that will not heal, this may finally be the treatment you have been waiting for.
What are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are very complicated. Basically, they are cells that can be divided and take on any number of functions. Stem cells can specialize and become important parts of the skin, bones, blood, muscle, nerves, and more. These cells are also very important when it comes to the body healing itself. In a normal injury, stem cells flood the injury and become whatever the body needs. When the injury is severe, these building block cells sometimes cannot get where they are needed. This is where stem cell therapy can save the day.
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cells can be harvested from a different area of the body and then strategically injected where they are most needed. Thanks to many medical advances, stem cells can be harvested in a quick and safe procedure. Once harvesting has been done, the material is spun in a centrifuge to extract the pure stem cells. These cells are then reintroduced into the body where they are needed the most.
Stem Cell Therapy for Encouraging Soft Tissue Repair
This therapy has proven itself to be very effective at aiding in the regeneration of orthopedic tissues. Injecting bone marrow stem cells is particularly helpful with healing muscle, ligament, tendons, cartilage, and adipose tissue (where fat is stored.) Studies have shown that this therapy is very helpful in reducing chronic pain, healing severe injury, and improving the functionality of these important soft tissues. These same studies saw patients resuming their normal activities in as little as one week.
Other potential uses for this therapy include:
- Decreasing scar tissue formation
- Increasing collagen production to speed up wound healing
- Normalizing blood pressure
- Strengthening and tightening tissues
