12 Oct Sports Injuries And The Use Of Amniotic Stem Cells
Unlike surgical treatment options, the revolutionary use of amniotic stem cell therapy has a technology that is minimally invasive but offers a more permanent solution than the traditional cortisone/steroid injections. Amniotic or adult stem cell therapy harnesses and maximizes the body’s ability to self-heal. The tissues of the body that are most vulnerable to a sports injury or degenerative conditions such as arthritis are the muscles, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments—unfortunately, they have an insufficient capacity for repair and self-healing.
Stem cell therapy, which utilizes adult stem cells or amniotic stem cells taken from the amniotic sac (controversial embryonic stem cells are not used) can help in several ways:
- Stem cells contain natural anti-inflammatory agents that aid in controlling swelling and inflammation. Stem cells are comprised of powerfully high concentrations of hyaluronic acid, a critical agent required to lubricate and re-grow cartilage
- The natural growth factors found in stem cells have been shown to stimulate repair and growth in damaged tissue.
- Because stem cells have a proven ability to develop into different kinds of cells, they can be injected into compromised areas so that they can help the body re-grow damaged cartilage, muscles, and other tissues, thereby expediting the healing process
For many patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis, tendonitis, ligament or tendon tears, plantar fasciitis, and even bunions, stem cell therapy can offer a safe, effective, permanent way to promote self-healing so patients can quickly get back on their feet and resume their active lifestyle.
