Stem Cell Treatments
Stem cell treatment takes advantage of the body’s ability to repair itself. With umbilical cord stem cell therapy, the medicine physician injects stem cells from umbilical cord tissues into your body. These stem cells have anti-inflammatory properties, similar to cortisone and steroid shots. However, stem cell therapy goes far beyond the benefits of standard “injection therapy.”
While cortisone and other drugs only provide temporary pain relief, stem cells actually restore degenerated tissue while providing pain relief. The growth factors in umbilical cord stem cells may replace damaged cells in your body. Additionally, stem cell injections contain hyaluronic acid, which lubricates joints and tendons, easing the pain and helping restore mobility.
For patients suffering from meniscus tears, there is an increasing awareness of the implications of removing the meniscus though surgical operation. Patients also prefer not to risk the side effects that come with steroid injections. Padgett Medical Stem Cell Therapy offers a non-invasive alternative to surgery and steroid injections. By using this regenerative approach, the medical collateral ligament can repair itself and regain its function of holding the knee bones in place, thus relieving pressure on other components such as the particular cartilage and meniscus.
When patients at Padgett Medical Center have joint degeneration, it generally develops over time. It can suddenly worsen and become more severe and disabling. Cartilage or other soft tissues within the knee joint can begin to dehydrate, deteriorate, or become damaged from some type of injury. Stem Cell Therapy uses these new cells to target the damaged and deteriorating tissues. Concentrated amounts of these new Stem Cells are injected into the affected area. This can immediately reduce inflammation and reverse damage and deterioration of tissue.
ACL or PCL Injury:
Injuries to the ACL or PCL connective tissues are painful and debilitating. This has always been a challenge to treat and heal. In the past, these kinds of injuries could cause what was considered permanent damage to the knee joints. For years, the most common treatment for torn ligaments in the knee is arthroscopic surgery and reconstruction. Stem Cell Therapy offers a non-surgical treatment option for those suffering from knee injuries and damage to soft tissues. These new Stem Cells are injected in concentrated amounts to target the injured area. Now these areas will have reduced inflammation and be able to heal naturally.
Chondromalacia (Runner’s Knee):
Chondromalacia is inflammation of the underside of the kneecap and deterioration of the cartilage. This condition is common among young athletes and can also be present in older individuals who have arthritis of the knee. At Padgett Medical Center in Tampa, our Stem Cell Therapy offers a natural treatment alternatives to pain medications, steroid injections, and surgery.
