Bone Marrow Cell Therapy

What is bone marrow cell therapy?

Bone Marrow Cell Therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that unlocks your body's natural recuperative and restorative powers. Bone marrow cells are different from all other cells in the human body because they are undifferentiated, meaning they can become any kind of cell. 

This transformative power means that when you place a bone marrow cell where it's needed, it turns into the kind of tissue you're lacking. For example, bone marrow cell therapy for joint damage can restore the worn-down parts of your joint, and this, in turn, relieves your pain.  

What happens in bone marrow cell therapy?

First, the Athens Spine Center team performs a minimally invasive procedure to harvest a small amount of bone marrow, typically in your pelvic bone. Then, they use state-of-the-art equipment to separate the bone marrow cells from the other components of your bone marrow. 

For bone marrow cell therapy treatment, the Athens Spine Center team injects your bone marrow cells into the area of chronic pain using ultrasound or X-ray guidance for ideal placement. This gives you a highly precise infusion of powerful bone marrow cells, just where you need them. Over time, your bone marrow cells turn into the new cells needed, prompt the growth of new cells, and boost your body's natural healing abilities. 

All of this combines to not only restore your damaged tissue but also to relieve your pain. 

What kinds of pain does bone marrow cell therapy help with?

Bone marrow cell therapy is a relatively new type of treatment, with its maximum potential still unknown. Many patients report significant pain relief after bone marrow cell therapy for back, neck, shoulder, hip, knee, other kinds of chronic pain. Bone marrow cell therapy may help with:

  • Arthritis damage
  • Joint degeneration
  • Ligament damage
  • Tendon damage
  • Nerve damage 
  • Connective tissue damage

If you're not sure whether bone marrow cell therapy or another kind of regenerative medicine like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) could help with your recovery, the Athens Spine Center team is happy to discuss your different treatment options. 

While some treatments only give you a quick fix, bone marrow cell therapy is a unique approach that can heal your body from the inside. To learn more, call the Athens Spine Center today.
