If you are suffering from arthritis, tendonitis, muscle tears, or sprains, until recently your only options would be temporary remedies or surgery. Sometimes surgery is necessary to correct a problem, but it does take time and involve a certain level of discomfort. Fortunately, AVORS Medical Group is offering a new option: stem cell therapy. This treatment uses stem cells from your own bone marrow to aid the healing process in other parts of your body.
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cells are a type of cell that is undifferentiated, meaning they can develop into many other types of cells. All our blood cells begin as stem cells, which are created in our bone marrow. Stem cells can differentiate into cells such as chondrocytes, which are found in cartilage and compose our bodily tissues.
In stem cell therapy, stem cells are removed from your bone marrow and injected into the problem area. The stem cells then release growth factors that accelerate the body’s natural healing process, reducing swelling, relieving pain and helping tissue to knit back together. There is no chance of rejection since the stem cells come from your own body.
