By Physicians Rehabilitation
Our joints are constantly enduring wear and tear, which can cause pain, inflammation and injury to occur. Over the past several years, Physicians Rehabilitation has been utilizing stem cell therapy with remarkable outcomes, due to the natural and proven healing effects, anti-inflammation and immunomodulation for various orthopedic conditions.
Beware of Subpar Stem Cells
Our own stem cells are not enough due to limitations, which are usually due to aging, or severe injuries; stem cells from other sources increase platelets in the blood, which travels to the injured area to increase healing more effectively. Many healthcare providers are supplying patients with inferior stem cells that do not work as well as pluripotent stem cells. The pluripotent cells come from umbilical cord donors and produce active cells that are full of nutrients, minerals, amino acids, and proteins and have the ability to reproduce and regenerate new cells throughout the body. Umbilical cord stem cells are one of the most powerful stem cells available because they have the potential to develop into any cell found in the human body.
Pluripotent stem cells can be used to treat and replenish areas of the entire body from head to toe. Stem cells work wonders in repairing and regenerating damaged tissue, and the human body completely accepts them. They offer anti-inflammatory, as well as immunomodulatory effects, which helps modulate the body’s immune responses. No embryonic tissues or tissue from aborted fetuses are ever used. The umbilical cord stem cells are obtained through aseptic recovery technique from full-term delivered babies from a healthy mother.
The stem cells are precisely injected into the injured region under ultrasound-guided imaging. These stem cells immediately begin to assist in the normal healing process to regenerate tissue growth, and signal repair to the damaged area.
In our practice, we have seen tremendous results with Viscosupplementation combined with physical therapy. Our success rate to date is at virtually 100 percent patient satisfaction. Viscosupplementation is an injectable substance that mimics the synovial fluid found naturally in the joint. Synovial fluid is made up of hyaluronic acid and helps to protect the joint. Once that naturally occurring substance wears away, your body cannot regenerate it on its own. Viscosupplementation is a welcomed benefit for relieving pain, and for getting your joint back to doing its job, which is acting as a cushion against friction.
The procedure can be done in our office and only takes a few minutes. After locally numbing your area, the procedure is monitored under a fluoroscopic image, which essentially is a moving X-ray. This allows the physician to see the inside of your joint while it is in motion. The practitioner will have the ability to see exactly where the Viscosupplementation is being placed within your joint. You’ll receive approximately five injections at one week apart. The results of the cartilage enhancement will last for around six months or longer. Physicians Rehabilitation has become the expert on providing great results when this process is paired with physical therapy. Many of our patients report feeling pain relief immediately, while others cumulatively see results within a few short weeks.
Because our bodies cannot ever regenerate cartilage or synovial fluid, this option cannot be overlooked! Why would anyone live with the unbearable pain? When within a few minutes, you could be well on your way to more flexibility, greater movement with better range of motion, and essentially pain free.
