True Joint Pain Surgery Alternative!

Stem Cells Are Growing in Popularity And Proven In Medical Research To Be More Effective Than Surgery At Healing Chronic Joint Pain

Permanent relief from chronic joint pain of the knee, hip, shoulder, and more -even the reversal of joint damage- isn’t the stuff of science fiction anymore. Best of all, it’s being done without the need for invasive surgery or prolonged, painful rehabilitation. Through today’s regenerative medicine, the repair and re-growth of soft tissues, bone, and cartilage can and does happen every day in the U.S.

Clinical research being done by prestigious institutions like the Mayo Clinic continue to support the daily successes being seen by patients who choose this minimally invasive, out-patient procedure. This method of advanced treatment is making the disabling pain of the knee, hip, shoulder, and more a thing of the past.

So why is stem cell therapy for joint pain so effective, and how is it eliminating the need for surgery? Who qualifies as a good candidate for stem cell treatment, and what happens during therapy? Let’s take a closer look and find out.

First Off, The Basics. What Is Stem Cell Therapy?

All repair, healing, and regeneration of the body begins with stem cells

Stem cell therapy is the use of the patient’s own stem cells to heal injuries, fight disease, and treat conditions and disorders whether acute or chronic. All repair, healing, and regeneration of the body begins with these unique cells.

A particularly abundant source of highly potent stem cells is the fatty layer that lies just beneath the skin. The tapping of this source has made stem cell therapy for joint pain a very minimally invasive, outpatient procedure. Combined with another regenerative medicine method that uses platelet rich plasma (PRP), stem cell therapy is a wildly successful alternative to knee, hip, or shoulder surgery.

what is a stem cell

Top 7 Benefits Of Stem Cells:

  • Faster healing time for injuries and wounds
  • Significant reduction of pain, no matter how long-standing or chronic.
  • Reduction in need for pain medications
  • An increase in joint function, flexibility, and range of motion
  • Reduction in the risk of future join injury
  • Decreases nerve damage
  • The return to normal activity much more quickly than surgery

WebMD recently highlighted the story of 55-year-old George Chung who suffered from severe osteoarthritis of the knee for six years. An avid skier, Mr. Chung thought his days enjoying his passion were long gone. “I had been in pain of various degrees for 6 years,” he told WebMD. Within two months after his first stem cell treatment, his knee pain was gone. By the time his treatment regimen ended he was not only back to high-intensity skiing, he has now also taken up long distance cycling.

How Stem Cell Therapy For Knee Pain Works

Stem cell treatment for knee pain literally attacks the problem at the cellular level

stem cell for knee pain

There are several reasons for chronic knee pain. Muscle trauma, meniscus tears, and osteoarthritis are among the primary causes. The pain from osteoarthritis of the knee is largely due to the wearing away of cartilage. Cartilage is the firm, rubbery substance covering the ends of bones where they become joints. The function of the cartilage is to reduce friction in the joints and serve as a “shock absorber.” When this natural lining and shock absorber is degraded, the pain can be debilitating.

But, whether the root cause is due to soft tissue injury, muscle trauma, or osteoarthritis, stem cell treatment for knee pain literally attacks the problem at the cellular level: tissue is repaired, muscles healed, cartilage re-grown. Stem cells are the foundation of a highly concentrated injection that targets specific areas of joint pain and damage. Through the utilization of stem cell treatment, often augmented with PRP therapy, the body’s own natural healing processes are kicked into overdrive.

How Stem Cell Therapy For Hip Pain Works

Stem cell therapy for hip pain addresses the core reason for the pain and immobility

As it does in treating chronic knee pain, stem cell therapy for hip pain addresses the core reason for the pain and immobility. Stem cells are essentially little packets of potential, awaiting signals from the body that tell them to travel to areas of injury or illness and become whatever type of cell is needed for repair, healing, and regeneration. Stem cells also have unique anti-inflammatory qualities that the body uses to reduce inflammation.

In the case of chronic hip pain caused by osteoarthritis, stem cell treatments soothe the inflammation caused by the breaking down of cartilage tissue. Simultaneously, stem cells go to work rebuilding the cartilage that has been worn away or degraded. When cartilage is restored, healthy function of the hip returns, mobility improves, and pain is dramatically reduced.

How Stem Cell Therapy For Shoulder Pain Works

Stem cells address damage and tears to the rotator cuff, cartilage, and tendons, and inflammation of the bursa sacs

Just as with knees and hips, shoulder pain can be the result of arthritis, as well. But damage or tears to the rotator cuff, cartilage, and tendons, or inflammation of the bursa sacs can also cause painful conditions, among others. Once again, stem cell therapy is uniquely suited as a treatment for chronic shoulder pain whether the cause is injury, trauma, or the degenerative effects of arthritis.

In medical terms, stem cells have the ability to differentiate. That means stem cells can become whatever type of cell the body needs for the healing of joint tissues, cartilage, and bone. During stem cell therapy for shoulder pain, inflammation is decreased, new blood vessel growth is stimulated, and the body’s own innate healing abilities are kick started. Damaged cartilage is repaired or re-grown, according to the need. Healthy, fresh tissue replaces deteriorated tissues of the muscles and tendons. The result is significant reduction of pain and inflammation, and increased flexibility and mobility without the need for invasive surgery and extensive, painful rehabilitation.

How Nutrition Affects Chronic Joint Pain

What we eat before and after treatment can have a significant impact in helping our bodies

Healing chronic joint pain through safe and effective regenerative methods like stem cell and PRP therapies is essential, but much can be done away from the clinic ensure the healing is given every opportunity to happen as quickly as possible. What we eat before and after treatment, as well as every day of our lives, can have a significant impact in helping our bodies reduce pain and inflammation.

According to the Arthritis Foundation, [LINK http://www.arthritis.org/living-with-arthritis/arthritis-diet/foods-to-avoid-limit/food-ingredients-and-inflammation-2.php] you can go a long way in boosting the healing affects of stem cell therapy by eating the right foods and knowing which ones to avoid.

Food additives that cause inflammation and, therefore, aggravate joint pain include:

  • Refined sugar, like fructose and sucrose
  • Saturated fats, like those found in typical carry-out pizza
  • Trans fats, like those found in processed snacks
  • Omega 6 Fatty Acids consumed in excess
  • Refined carbohydrates, such as in white flour products
  • Mono-sodium glutamate (MSG)
  • Gluten, for people who are allergic to this protein
  • Aspartame, such as in artificial sweeteners
  • Alcohol consumed in quantities other than moderate

Qualified Nutritionists And Stem Cell Therapy For Joint Pain Go Together

Experienced, qualified stem cell clinics like NSI Stem Cell Centers always pair expert nutritional counseling with their regenerative therapy methods. Doing so is simple, sound common sense. This helps patients take on an active role in their healing and gives them tools to use every day in maintaining their new-found, healthy and pain-free life after stem cell treatment.

A qualified nutritional counselor will advise patients to eat foods that reduce inflammation, strengthen bones and boost the immune system

These foods include:

  • Fish, such as salmon, tuna, mackerel, and herring
  • Soybean foods, such as edamame and tofu
  • Heart-healthy oils, such as those found in olives, avocadoes, and walnuts
  • Red and purple fruits, such as strawberries, cherries, raspberries, and blueberries
  • Calcium and Vitamin D-rich foods, such as yogurt and green, leafy vegetables
  • Green tea
  • Citrus fruits, such as oranges, grapefruits, and limes
  • Whole grain products, such as oatmeal, brown rice and whole grain cereals
  • Bean, especially red, kidney, and pinto
  • Garlic
  • Nuts, especially walnuts, pistachios, and almonds

What To Expect During And After Stem Cell Therapy For Chronic Joint Pain

Whether the joint condition is long standing or the injury is new, the benefits of this 21st century medical advancement are being felt by many thousands of people in the United States and worldwide

First and foremost, regenerative treatments for joint pain in the United States should be FDA guidelines-compliant. Therapies that are stem cell based as well as platelet rich plasma based that follow these guidelines are safe, minimally non-invasive and are done on an outpatient basis. Generally speaking, patients start feeling improvement or relief from pain right from the first injection.

The best stem cell clinics use adipose-derived stem cells. These stem cells are easily harvested from the fatty layer that lies just beneath the skin. Since they are particularly abundant, as well a potent, a small sample is all that is needed for a single treatment. The best stem cell clinics, like NSI Stem Cell Centers, do everything in-house: from laboratory processing to the therapy injection. This ensures full quality control, sterile conditions, and that no contamination occurs. These controls coupled with the most advanced regenerative therapy methods mean that stem cell and PRP treatments can be done with the highest quality in a matter of a few hours.

Once the stem cells are harvested and turned into a highly concentrated serum, the joint pain treatment is done through injection. Since the procedure is minimally invasive only local anesthesia is required, and there is no post-procedure downtime required afterward.

The strong right hook in the one-two punch of joint pain treatment

Stem cell therapy for chronic joint pain is frequently paired with PRP treatment. This is the strong right hook in the one-two punch combo of joint pain treatment. PRP therapy boosts the increase and differentiation of stem cells. The stem cell treatment and PRP therapy act together to decrease inflammation, encourage the growth of new blood vessels, and stimulate the body’s own abilities to heal, re-grow, and replace tissues that have deteriorated over the years or have sustained trauma due to injury or overuse. Four weeks following stem cell treatment, another PRP injection is performed. This increases the regenerative process.

As mentioned above, the majority of patients report pain relief very shortly after the first injection. As treatment progresses so does the improvement in function, mobility, and continued pain reduction. Every patient is unique, but most patients notice full results within a few weeks to a few months. Unlike with invasive surgeries, there is no downtime needed for recovery or a need for extensive, painful physical rehabilitation. Most patients return to their regular, daily activities immediately, and increase their activity levels as the benefits of stem cell therapy continue to progress.

Why You Should Consider Stem Cell Treatment Before Joint Replacement

The basic elements of stem cell treatment and its inherently minimally invasive procedure help sufferers avoid the problems and hazards commonly related to joint replacement surgery

It is no surprise that most people avoid joint replacement surgery. It’s invasive and usually involves long and painful rehabilitation and recovery. Still other people put off treatment out of fear of infection or the potential increase for heart attack that may follow joint replacement surgery. Still others avoid it because of concerns about surgical complications and the limited life span of artificial joints.

The basic elements of stem cell treatment and its inherently minimally invasive procedure are precisely what has helped so many sufferers avoid the problems and hazards that are commonly related to joint replacement surgery. More and more people –physicians and chronic joint pain sufferers alike- are turning to stem cell treatment as an alternative “first resort” over surgery.

Stem Cell Treatment: A Viable Option Over Ligament Surgeries

Tears to the rotator cuff, Achilles tendon, and the ACL can all be addressed through stem cell treatment

Osteoarthritis is not the only cause of chronic joint pain. Soft tissue tears and muscle trauma play a large part in joint pain, including those of the shoulder, hip, knee, wrist and ankle. Among these are injuries to the ligaments, including partial tears in the rotator cuff, Achilles tendon, and the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). All can be addressed through stem cell treatment.

In particular, injury to the ACL of the knee is an excellent illustration regarding how stem cell therapy can be a valuable option over invasive surgeries. An ACL rupture or tear is most frequently only a partial tear. The outermost sheath usually remains intact, or it may retract slightly. That means the ligament remains mostly in place. Stem cell treatment for ligament repair is particularly well suited to heal such joint pain and injury cases.

Stem cell treatments for soft tissue injury like that to the ACL were once largely the “secret” of professional athletes. For many years now, stem cell injections into injured ligaments has been revolutionizing how both athlete and doctor look at what were once season-ending joint injuries.

This advanced medical therapy enables patients to take back up certain types of exercise several weeks after treatment, and return to full activities in a matter of months. Part of what makes all this possible is that the stem cells used in the procedure are the patient’s own, virtually eliminating rejection risk. Since it is a minimally invasive procedure, risk of infection is also extremely low. And, as with all stem cell and PRP therapies as practiced at NSI Stem Cell Centers, there is no post-procedural recovery time to endure before the benefits from the stem cell treatment are felt.

A viable alternative to invasive surgery for torn ligaments

Tennis players, runners, skiers, mountain bikers, and any other sports enthusiasts whose game depends on strong, healthy knees, elbows, hips, shoulders and more now have a viable alternative to invasive surgery for torn ligaments. Opting for stem cell treatment for joint pain and injuries can return you to the sport you love in a fraction of the time of surgery. Not only that, stem cell treatment for joint injury holds much less long term risk of developing arthritis. The development of arthritic conditions is one of the common, long term complications of surgeries for conditions like ACL tears.

Who Is A Candidate For Stem Cell Treatment?

Many osteoarthritis patients are relieved to learn that they are excellent candidates for regenerative medicine therapies that may very well eliminate the need for surgery; even in bone-on-bone situations. People who suffer from most other acute or chronic joint pain due to soft tissue injuries are also prime candidates for stem cell treatment.

The reason for the injury or pain can range from overuse, trauma to the injured joint or soft tissues, debilitating conditions such as degenerative arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis, and more. Stem cell treatment is also an excellent therapy for the healing and relief of tendonitis or ligamentous pain and injury.

But sufferers of joint and soft tissue injury aren’t the only people who make good candidates

If you have a bone fracture that is slow-healing (also known as a non-union fracture), stem cell treatment is uniquely suited to such injuries. Dramatic improvement in recovery times for both acute and sub-acute injury types is the norm rather than the exception.

Stem Cell Treatment Has A Long, Established History Of Effectiveness

Today’s regenerative therapy methods have advanced exponentially

Because so much of the early work in stem cell treatment focused on acute and chronic injury, today’s regenerative therapy methods have advanced exponentially. Among the joint pain and injury conditions that fit the model are new, onset partial tears of ligaments, tendons, bones and cartilage. Patients go back to their favorite activities far more quickly, and report a significant decrease in pain and improved mobility.

Joint pain and soft tissue injuries that are regularly healed through stem cell treatment include the following:

Medial Collateral Ligament Therapy Using Stem Cells

Why Choose Medial Collateral Ligament Therapy With Stem Cells?

mcl tearMedial collateral ligament and the lateral collateral ligament are ligaments location on either side of the knee. These connect the lower leg bone to the femur. The medial collateral ligament is located on the inner area of the knee and its main purpose is to inhibit the knee from bending backwards. This supports the knee and allows rotation. This can get damaged when the ligament is too stretch after a hard impact which occurs when the knee is bent. The MCL tear is usually extremely painful. The tear can range from a sprain and to a partial or total tear of the ligament. This kind of injury is often the result of a strong impact during sports such as skiing or football. The injury is graded in severity right from 1 up to 3. This depends on the amount of ligament fibers are involved and damaged in the injury. Continue reading “Medial Collateral Ligament Therapy Using Stem Cells”

Meniscus Tear Stem Cell Therapy

What Happens In A Meniscus Tear?

meniscus regenerationMeniscus is a piece of rubbery cartilage located at the knee joint. It acts as the body’s shock absorber. It also functions as a pad to stabilize and protect the knee. There are two C-shaped menisci on each knee which supports the knee by evenly distributing the weight across the knee and keeping it in place.

A meniscus tear is a knee injury in which the meniscus cartilage raptures because of traumatic injuries or due to wear and tear. This is usually extremely painful and limits the movements. With this type of injury, the knee will not function properly. At one time, steroids or surgery were the only repair options. However, at advanced U.S. medical clinics like NSI Stem Cell in Florida, meniscus regeneration is an alternative that has caught the attention of professional athletes and active every day people alike.* Used in partnership with platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, stem cell treatment for a meniscus tear is changing the face of sports medicine.*

Degrees of Meniscus Tears

There are degrees of meniscus tears which is minor, moderate and severe.

  • Severe: This is where the small portions of ruptured meniscus goes into the knee joint and affects the knee function and causes extreme pain.
  • Moderate to minor: The pain associated with the tear usually disappears after regular therapy or a few weeks of rest.

Conventional Treatment for A Meniscus Tear

Usual treatment for this type of injury involves steroid injection or surgery, depending on the severity. However, none of these treatments effectively repairs the tear since the damaged meniscus cannot heal because of the limited blood supply in the area. The surgical route involves partial or complete removal of the meniscus, which means that the knee is deprived of its valuable protection. There are also some apprehensions when it comes to surgical treatment since there is increased risk of knee degradation and osteoarthritis.

Stem Cell Therapy And PRP For Meniscus Tear

Those who are dealing with a meniscus tear are becoming more aware of the consequences of the surgical removal of the meniscus. Most of the patients also doesn’t want to put themselves at risk when it comes to corticosteroid injections.

NSI Stem Cell offers a non-invasive option to surgery and steroid injections for this musculoskeletal problem. We treat underlying issues the caused the pain using platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy or stem cell therapy.* Our treatments for meniscus regeneration stimulates the natural healing process of the body.* But the specifics of the procedure will vary on the severity of the injury as well as other factors like overall health condition and age.

When is Stem Cell Therapy & PRP Used for a Meniscus Tear?

Some cases of meniscus tear can be resolved using physical therapy whereas some can resolve themselves through rest. However, when it comes to severe meniscus tear, conventional therapy methods often rely too heavily on surgery or, in extreme cases, removal of the meniscus.*

When a meniscus tear is on the outer edges, it can be stitched and will eventually heal since blood circulation is higher at the edges. There are different types of tears that, prior to stem cell therapy technology, could have only be dealt with through total or partial removal of the meniscus. The pain of the tear can last anywhere between weeks to months. Additionally, the surgical removal of the meniscus is known to accelerate osteoarthritis. And it also gradually lowers the knee function due to lack of meniscus which cushions and stabilizes the knee.

Stem Cell Therapy Can Be Alternative Treatments To The Following:*

  • Total Meniscetomy – Especially if the patient has a higher risk of developing osteoarthritis, which common in elderly and overweight patients. In fact, it is highly recommended to avoid the removal of the meniscus since it is a vital part of the knee and is important for mobility.
  • Recover meniscal volume post surgery – Stem cell therapy has the ability to enhance meniscus repair and healing even after part of it has been surgically removed. The use of stem cell therapy can increase the volume of the meniscus.
  • Conventional Drug Therapy – Pain medication and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) usage can be avoided or lessened with the help of stem cell therapy especially if the pain persists despite taking such medications.
  • Steroid Injections – There are a lot of patients decide that the short term pain relieve that steroids offer is not worth risking the long term side effects.
  • Partial menistectomy – There are instances where partial meniscectomy may not produce the results that the patient needs but stem cell therapy can offer the pain relief without the need to have surgery.

Causes Of Meniscus Tears

The meniscus is prone to wear and tear. Because of this, it is likely that high impact athletes and the elderly have a higher probability of suffering a meniscus tear. The tear can happen after a forceful motion of twisting or turning and through trauma at the cartilage. Heavy lifting and sports are among of the few that contributes to meniscus tear.

Symptoms Of Meniscus Tears

  • Severe or mild swelling depending on the severity of the tear
  • Tenderness of the knee
  • Stiffness
  • Limited mobility
  • Localized pain on either the side or middle of the knee
  • Knee locking up or giving out
  • Catching or popping of the knee due to pieces of the meniscus floating in the knee joint

It is important to take note that the pain that can last for years, if it is left untreated. In most instances, there is decreased pain during rest periods. So, you are suffering from meniscus tear, you can contact our staff at NSI Stem Cell to learn more about the possibilities of meniscus tear regenerative for you.

stem cell cartilageCartilage is the body’s shock absorber. At the ends of each bone, cartilage acts as a cushion against wear and tear that occurs in activities as typical as daily walking, gripping and reaching, to the more extreme stresses of sports or exercise. Meniscus tears in the knees are frequent among professional and amateur athletes alike. And as we age or add stress to the joints like those in hips, the cartilage of our joints can break down. Degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis are all too common reasons for cartilage loss.
