Stem cell therapy is a regenerative approach to medicine that harnesses the unique properties of adult stem cells. These cells have the ability to self-replicate indefinitely, and they can differentiate into several different types of tissue.
Stem cell therapy harvests donor cells from one area of your body and reintroduces them into the site of your pain or injury. It’s a safe, natural alternative to orthopedic surgery or ongoing use of pain medications.
Stem cell therapy using cells from adipose (fat) tissue is advantageous primarily because these cells are easy and safe to harvest, making it convenient to repeat the procedure to achieve maximum benefits. In addition, adipose stem cells trigger a potent immune response and can rebuild many types of tissue, including nerve tissue. This makes adipose stem cells particularly useful for orthopedic conditions.
The skilled team at Carolina Regenerative Medicine uses adipose stem cell injections to address a wide range of orthopedic concerns. Some of the most common conditions they treat with adipose stem cell therapy include:
Adipose stem cells are also effective when used to treat neck and back pain.
Your Carolina Regenerative Medicine expert begins by administering a local anesthetic in the area of the donor site, usually the hip. Once the area is completely numb, your provider uses a needle and syringe to remove a small amount of fat tissue from the donor area.
Next, your tissue is processed in a centrifuge to separate the adult stem cells from other types of cells. Every step of your stem cell therapy procedure is performed using sterile, FDA-approved, medical-grade equipment.
When processing is complete, your provider numbs the target area and uses ultrasound technology to guide them as they inject the adipose stem cells into the site of your pain or injury.
The natural healing process takes some time, but over the next several weeks, you’ll notice an improvement in your pain and range of motion. After a few months, you can become free from pain and enjoy restored mobility and function.
