You've probably heard something about stem cell therapy at this point. But might find yourself wondering what it actually is.

Stem cell therapy has been around for much longer than you'd think! We now know that every organ in the body has stem cells, which means that heart transplants, bone marrow transplants, and even skin grafts are considered forms of stem cell treatment. Blood transfusions, which were done as early as WWI, are technically a form of stem cell therapy, too.

Stem cells have the unique ability to develop into specialized cell types in your body. They can be used to replace tissues and cells that have been lost or damaged due to disease. Mesenchymal stem cells help repair bone cartilage, tendons, and muscle. Stem cell therapies have the ability to help the body regenerate the necessary components to become stronger and healthier, which helps your body overcome a variety of chronic health challenges. 

Stem cell regenerative therapy is a natural treatment that is available without the risks of surgery and long, taxing recovery periods. This treatment can actually repair damaged tissue in the body as a result of age, disease, and degeneration. Stem cells actually go to the area that needs them most, can remove swelling with anti-inflammatory properties, and even heal these areas by regenerating new cells and tissue.

Patients that use stem cell therapy treatment may enjoy the benefits of decreased pain and an improved range of motion...within weeks! The results that our patients have seen are remarkable, with some patients finding they required only one treatment.
