STEM CELL THERAPY FOR SPORTS & ATHLETIC INJURY
Receive Tomorrow’s Treatment – Today!
Regenerative Medicine is an alternative option to help manage the symptoms caused by sports and athletic injuries.
New alternative way to help manage Sports and Athletic injuries.
Athletic injuries can be one of the best responders to stem cell therapy. In fact, sports icons, such as Peyton Manning & Ryan Tannehill, have used stem cell treatments with much success. Stemedix uses adipose, bone marrow aspirate or umbilical cord derived stem cells as methods of therapy for you in your journey to wellness.
Stem cell therapy for sports injuries helps the body’s natural healing process work faster and more effectively. If you have a sports/athletic injury, stem cells can:
Help repair cartilage
Help repair ligaments and tendons
Delay the need for joint replacement surgery
Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
Restoration of the joint capsules
Return of joint function
Sports and Regenerative Medicine is a ccatch-allterm for a variety of different conditions. Sports medicine started with the treatment of the musculoskeletal injuries that occurred while engaging in athletics and active sports. Normally the primary cause of injury was trauma affecting one of the joints: knees, hip, shoulder, elbow, ankle, and wrist. As sports medicine evolved, it also started to include treatment of the neck, back, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Regenerative medicine is the process by which sports medicine works. Many times, the ligaments, cartilage, and tendons wear out. With this new technology, the tissue is regrown from stem cells.
The symptoms of a sports injury usually arise as pain in the joints and muscles. For it to count under the umbrella of sports medicine, the injury needs to be some type of an impact, injury, or trauma. There are some joint and muscle pains that would not fall under the treatment of sports medicine such as rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. The pain caused by a sports injury involves the ligaments and tendons that support the joints, such as the various ligaments in the knee or the Achilles’ tendon in the ankle.
Treatments for sports injuries tend to focus on getting the joint back to its prior shape. This is often done by replacing ligaments and tendons, such as in the knee, but at times, total joint replacements are sometimes necessary for those who have advanced pain, comorbid osteoarthritis, or have failed other treatments. With regenerative medicine, the process of regenerating the tissue is usually carried out by means such as stem cells. With the use of these cells delivered directly into the tissue, the cells can differentiate into the types needed to repair the joint.
When used in conjunction with traditional treatments, such as physical therapy and rest, stem cells have a great potential to make athletic injuries heal much quicker than without. Usually, the stem cells are placed directly into the joint, and this helps to heal the ligaments, tendons, and cartilage much more quickly. The regeneration provided by stem cell therapy increases the chance to reverse the problems that are caused by sports/athletic injuries.
