Research has found that inflammation is the root cause of nearly all diseases, but inflammation didn’t start out with such a bad reputation. Inflammation is a process that helps to protect the body from bacteria and viruses. If you cut your finger, the inflammatory system would send millions of white blood cells to the area to fight any foreign substances and prevent disease. However, when inflammation turns into pain, stem cell therapy may be used to help.
Understanding Inflammation and Pain
In an autoimmune disease, the immune system gets confused and turns on the body instead of the foreign substance. This causes pain and inflammation. The autoantibodies are released against healthy cells, not the foreign intruders, and the symptoms begin.
The problem with inflammation is that it continues to multiply when it is fed toxic foods such as sugar or processed foods or if the area was injured. When there is an overabundance of inflammation built up for one reason or another, there tends to be more pain.
For example, when someone has osteoarthritis in their knee, inflammation tries to heal the condition, so it keeps multiplying, causing swelling and pain. People who suffer from osteopathic pain often try many treatments to get relief, but if they aren’t addressing the root of the issue, chances are nothing has worked. Stem cell therapy may be the answer!
Symptoms of inflammation include:
- Swollen joints that are warm to the touch
- Joint pain
- Joint stiffness
- Loss of joint function
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
During the last decade, stem cell therapy has become available for those who are experiencing inflammation and increased pain in their joints, muscles, ACL ligament, worn cartilage or in issues such as torn muscles and tendons. These conditions are painful enough, but when you add inflammation, it’s difficult to get through your everyday tasks. Many people are forced to use canes or other devices to assist them because the pain can be severe.
Stem cell therapy is a state-of-the-art treatment in the medical field that includes no surgery and no extensive downtime. The stem cells can be used right here in our office after a consultation with the health professional to make sure you would be a good candidate.
