Take a moment to learn more about stem cell therapy, how it works to address pain and tissue damage, and whether it’s time to consider this innovative treatment.
Stem cell therapy 101
Everyone has unspecialized cells, called stem cells, that can develop into other types of cells in your body, as needed, to repair damaged or worn tissues. Stem cell therapy uses harvested stem cells that are injected into an injured or damaged part of the body to promote healing.
Different stem cell therapies use different types of stem cells. At Peak Physical Medicine, we use amniotic allografts, or stem cells harvested from amniotic tissue in the placenta. Your provider injects them in the treatment area where they divide and replicate into the type of cells your body needs.
When to consider stem cell therapy
If you’re struggling with chronic pain from an injury or underlying health condition, it’s time to talk to your provider at Peak Physical Medicine to learn if stem cell therapy can help.
This innovative treatment can give you lasting relief from chronic pain. What’s more? It helps repair the damaged tissues that are triggering your pain in the first place, making it less likely to hurt in the future. This is especially true when stem cell therapy is used alongside other regenerative treatments like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.
Though pills and medicinal injections must go through your bloodstream throughout your entire body, stem cell therapy addresses the inflammation and damage at the site of your pain, giving you more targeted pain relief.
Here are just a few of the many conditions stem therapy can help:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Back pain
- Degenerative disk disease
- Soft tissue injuries
- Nerve damage
Stem cell therapy can also help your own bone and tissue regenerate in areas damaged by disease or injury.
Combining stem cell therapy with other treatments
Our practice uses an integrative approach to treatment, meaning your provider may use different therapies and treatments to ensure you get the best results possible. Your provider may recommend using stem cell therapy with other minimally invasive therapies, including:
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Nutrition counseling
- Spinal decompression
