Stem Cell Therapy for Muscle and Tendon Injuriesby Sam Walton Sr. Business Analyst
Surgery is a daunting treatment option for most people since it is potentially risky with the possibility of blood loss, pain, the risk of infections and other complications and a long recovery period. This is why many patients are now turning to Stem Cell Therapy as an alternative to surgical treatment, especially in orthopedic conditions and injuries. Stem cell therapy hold great healing potential in tendon and skeletal muscle injuries, with faster recovery and significantly less complications.
Muscle injuries may result from strains, tears and contusions. While skeletal muscles can regenerate completely in case of minor injuries, severe or chronic problems may interfere with the healing and impair muscle function.
Tendon injuries can be the result of sports injuries or due to age-related degeneration, which makes these tissues susceptible to tears and inflammation. Tendons have poor healing capacity too.
Common tendon and muscle conditions include –
- Muscle injuries
- Tendinopathies, tendonitis
- Tendon degeneration
- Tendon enthesopathy
- Tendon tears
For several muscle and tendon pain conditions, surgery is the only treatment option. However, surgery is not without risks, including pain, blood loss and clots, anesthesia effects, and infections. It also requires hospitalization for some days. Recovery from surgery is slow, and requires at least a few months with limited use of part of the body with the affected muscle or tendon, followed by several months of physical therapy and rehabilitation. In many cases, full function may still not be restored.
Stem cell therapy for muscle and tendon injuries
Stem cells are your body’s natural healing agents. They renew cells throughout the body, including muscles and tendons. Stem cells possess the unique ability to differentiate into different types of cells, including muscles and tendon cells. Thus, stem cell therapy promotes self-healing, delay disease progression and modify inflammatory response, aiding pain relief and function recovery.
High concentrations of stem cells exist in the fat tissue, which can be extracted with minimal discomfort, and then injected back into the injured tissues along with concentrated platelet rich plasma. This allows accelerated healing of the injury as cells are repaired and renewed, inflammation reduces, and pain is relieved. As a result, patients can get back to work and other activities they enjoy, even sports.
Usually, a single stem cell injection can produce great results in repair of muscle and tendon injuries. However, your doctor may recommend repeating stem cell injections, in some cases.
If you want to know whether you are a good candidate for stem cell therapy for a specific condition or injury, consult an expert at a trusted stem cell treatment center right away.
