Stem Cell Therapy
Stem Cell Therapy and Orthopedics Plano TX
Stem cell therapy is a way of activating the natural healing process that is already inside your body. Adult mesenchymal stem cells (MSC’s) are what are known as undifferentiated, meaning that they do not have a set form. Under the right circumstances, they can actually multiply and change (differentiate), into other kinds of cells. In a sense, they are like universal building blocks that can change form to fit specific needs.
Once retrieved, they can be used to target specific areas of the body, helping to repair and replace damaged tissues. Stem cells can be retrieved in several different ways. They can be retrieved from bone marrow, blood, or fatty tissues such as abdominal fat. The ratios of usable stem cells will vary, depending on the source. The more stem cells that are available, the better the chance for rapid regeneration at a cellular level.
Stem cell therapy can reduce pain and swelling and speed healing. Stem cell therapy can also be used in conjunction with other treatments and therapies including PRP, surgery, physical therapy, and more. In some cases, stem cell therapy may help patients avoid more invasive surgical procedures. Stem Cell Therapy can be used for a wide range of conditions, injuries, and disorders, including:
- Sports medicine
