Understanding Why Regenerative Medicine is the Future in Orthopaedic Care
Stem Cell Orthopaedic Therapy
In the United States of America alone, there are currently more than 90,000 patients on the waiting list for organ transplants and a good chunk of these are elderly citizens. This is no surprise as aging has been found to increase the occurrence of chronic diseases and injuries.
At Florida OrthoCare, with the growing strain from a drastically aging population and an increased criticism on the effectiveness of existing organ transplant procedures; more people are turning to ‘regenerative medicine’ as an effective alternative.
Regenerative medicine is a revolutionary branch of the medical practice that employs safe, comfortable, and sterile techniques to harness and optimize the body’s natural healing response with the aim of restoring (repairing or regenerating) tissues and organs damaged by chronic diseases, aging, or congenital defects.
From a host of alternatives, the current technique for regenerative medicine use stem cells for building and restoring organs and tissues.
Stem Cell Treatment for Chronic Diseases, Injuries and Joint Pain
Stem cell therapy can handle a broad range of defects including degenerated or herniated discs, chronic joint disease, muscle sprains and tears, sport-related meniscus, ligaments, tendon injury, joint and spinal injuries, arthritis, osteoarthritis and sciatica.
Depending on the organ or tissue targeted by the regenerative medical procedure, some of the most common forms of stem cell treatment include the stem cell spinal therapy, stem cell shoulder therapy, stem cell disk therapy, stem cell joint therapy, and the stem cell knee therapy.
Stem Cell Spinal Therapy
For older people especially former athletes, that chronic backache could stand in the way of your everyday life. As the chronic back pain experienced with aging usually results from spinal cord injury, inflammations, and degenerative defects; stem cell spinal therapy has been identified as an effective regenerative medical practice to restore the proper functioning spinal tissues.
Stem Cell Joint Therapy
Aging results in a loss of some essential cell proteins required for maintaining healthy bones and joints. This results in severe joint aches, stiffness, and swellings that might make normal daily functioning tedious and uncomfortable. It is not any more comforting to find that aging offsets the body’s natural healing mechanism for chronic diseases and injuries. Stem cell joint therapy has therefore been employed as a regenerative technique for restoring damaged joint tissues by fostering the tissue’s natural healing mechanism.
Stem Cell Knee Therapy
For athletes especially, it is common the knees get bad and sore with age. Stem cell knee therapy would improve the body’s natural ability to restore the healthy functioning of the knees even at old age.
Stem Cell Elbow Therapy
For tennis players, some develop traumas, ‘tennis elbows’ or other injuries to the tissues of the elbow joint, and this becomes more likely with aging as the body loses its natural healing ability. Stem cell elbow therapy is just the excellent regenerative medicine for ‘tennis elbows’ and those severe or mild elbow pains and injuries.
Stem Cell Shoulder Therapy
You can bet that weightlifters might experience severe shoulder in old age that might make even daily activities unpalatable. And if you are a retired weight-lifter, you don’t have to live with that constant shoulder pain. Stem cell shoulder therapy would get your aching shoulder fixed with its safe, comfortable, and effective regenerative medical procedure.’
Stem Cell Disk Therapy
From stem cell joint therapy to stem cell spinal therapy; regenerative medicine is the future… and the future is bright.
Understanding How Regenerative Medicine Works
A combination of the extracted stem cell pellets and the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is administered to the targeted tissue area, with local anesthesia. The entire extraction and injection procedure usually takes 2 hours, and with the administration of local anesthesia, the patient can be awake throughout the comfortable and safe procedure, and would be ready do discharge immediately it is completed.
