Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that unlocks your body's natural recuperative and restorative powers. Stem 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 stem cell where it's needed, it turns into the kind of tissue you're lacking. For example, stem cell therapy for joint damage can restore the worn-down parts of your joint, and this, in turn, relieves your pain.  

What happens in stem 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 stem cells from the other components of your bone marrow. 

For the stem cell therapy treatment, the Athens Spine Center team injects your stem 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 stem cells, just where you need them. Over time, your stem cells turn into the new cells needed, prompt 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 stem cell therapy help with?

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

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

If you're not sure whether stem 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, stem cell therapy is a unique approach that can heal your body from inside. To learn more, call the Athens Spine Center today.
