Is Stem Cell Treatment New?
The use of stem cells in treating pain and healing the body is not new to the medical field. Stem cells have been used in serious surgeries for several decades by surgeons to assist in the healing of specific organs and for the regeneration of cells around the incisions. Doctors have known and used the benefits of stem cell therapy in sport’s injuries, but it wasn’t until renvelty that stem cells became available to the general public. This is a huge step in natural non-surgical treatments, and it is extremely successful in relieving pain from sprains, muscle and ligament tears, and even nerve and bone problems without the need for surgery.
What are Stem Cells and Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cell therapy is a treatment used extensively for the healing of injuries or chronic pain that comes from wear and tear or disease. The therapy centers around the injection of stem cells, which are natural cells taken from the patient’s own body.
Every human being has stem cells in their body, and their job is to come to the rescue and heal an area when it is needed. Their unique identity is that they are uncoded, which means they can transform into whatever type of cells they find themselves in. Stem cells surrounded by cartilage will reproduce cartilage; stem cells injected into muscle tissue will reproduce that same muscle tissue, and they will do it quickly. This is a wonderful natural way to increase and strengthen the area, too. When there is a reduced number of the original stem cells, such as in osteoarthritis of the knee or sprains and tears of different tissues, stem cells can be injected to accelerate the healing process. When more whole, healthy cells are produced in that area, they can bring healing without interference from prescriptions or other medical techniques. Your body does all the work because that’s what it was designed to do.
Like most other elements in the body, stem cells decrease in number as you age. If you are injured, there are less of them to respond, and healing will not occur or it may happen too slowly. By injecting more of these uncoded cells, they transform in the area and combine with the remaining cells to get them into action and multiply to fill in the injured area. An injection treatment of stem cells accelerates the healing process tremendously and efficiently.
This is the theory behind all stem cell therapy, no matter where it is used in the body. Thousands of stem cell recipients both in Phoenix and across the US have successfully used this treatment and received amazing results. The process is natural and simple. In one office, our professionals can discuss your issues and what you wish to treat, determine if you would make a good candidate for the treatment, and perhaps even start the stem cell therapy that will lead you on your way to being pain-free.
No harmful or addictive chemicals are ever required either before, during or after the injection, and there is no set downtime or recovery period required. Many people return to work after their treatment session. Our professional may use other therapies to assist the stem cells in multiplying more rapidly or to strengthen the muscle groups surrounding the healing area, but that is up to the individual.
What Orthopedic Areas are Now Available for Treatment for the Public?
If you are suffering from chronic pain in your legs or arms from an injury, inflammation, sprain, tear or other orthopedic problem, you could be an excellent candidate for the revolutionary stem cell therapy treatment, and this could be the solution you’ve been looking for to finally feel your best. The same treatment that has been used for decades by surgeons performing serious surgeries is the same type of treatment used to relieve your orthopedic pain. Many surgeons who required an intense healing agent in specific organs or from an extensive amount of success used stem cells to accelerate the healing process. They have successfully used this natural, scientific process with incredible success, so the use of stem cells is not new; it has just been recently released for the general public in the US. Stem cell therapy is now available for men and women in Phoenix and across the country for orthopedic injuries, especially sprains and tears in tissue.
Sports players have also been using stem cell injections for muscle and ACL tears and other injuries they received during their games. Stem cell therapy allows them to heal naturally and quickly with no added prescriptions or other additives, and results allow many of them back in the game much faster than surgery that always includes downtime and periods of recovery. Stem cell therapy has been researched, tested and found to be very successful in healing most orthopedic problems, and chiropractors were some of the first physicians to begin to offer it in their offices.
Here are the common orthopedic problems and injuries that can be treated with stem cell therapy today in Phoenix:
- Ankle Sprains, Chronic Plantar Fasciitis
- Back and Neck Injuries
- Ligament Sprains

- Osteoarthritis of the hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, and spine

What is Included in Stem Cell Therapy?
In addition to your consultation and stem cell injection, our experienced professionals may add some therapies for you to accelerate the stem cell reproduction process. These may be used to assist in making your treatment more effective. After your injection, the stem cells will immediately begin to do their job and start multiplying, and these additional therapies may be used on an individual basis to enhance the results. For example, we may recommend physical therapy or another type of therapy.
One or all of these additional therapies may be used to assist in the repairing process; it all depends on your personal wants and needs. In just weeks after the injection, many people begin to feel some relief from the pain, but the cell growth continues for multiple months and sometimes even longer. Pain relief, better mobilization, and stability are all some of the benefits received as the stem cells multiply and promote healing.
Stem cell therapy also leaves a lot of the healing process up to the recipient and the severity of their problems. After the first injection has reached its maximum limit in growth, typically after multiple months, you and our professional can discuss another injection if you choose.
How Can I Know if I’d Be a Good Candidate for Stem Cell Therapy?
The process to determine if you would make a good candidate for stem cell therapy is not difficult. When you schedule a consultation, you can learn more about the procedure and have your condition evaluated and diagnosed. If the doctor can determine that you have enough of the original tissue, then you would make a good recipient of stem cell therapy and be able to start the treatment as soon as possible. This is a necessary step because there must be an ample amount of the original tissue remaining for the injected stem cells to copy and reproduce.
