Tendon Repair: Stem Cell Therapy to the Rescue!
Tendons are rope-like fibers that connect your muscles to your bones. Injuries can happen near the joints, most frequently at the shoulder, elbow, ankle and knee.
Tendon injuries can occur suddenly due to trauma or physical activity, but many are caused by progressive age-related damage. This damage is the accumulation of tiny tears and strains. While surgery may be needed in the case of acute injuries, stem cell procedures can work with more chronic injuries and alongside traditional treatments to speed healing and prevent reinjury.
🦵Levels of Tendon Injury Explained Tendon injuries are classified according to the degree of tissue damage. A case of tendonitis is an irritated, inflamed tendon. It should not be ignored, since it could lead to further injury. Tendinosis is tiny tears of the tendon or surrounding tissue, and shows a tendon at risk of acute injury. A tendon tear is a partial or complete severing of the tendon. Complete tendon tears are extremely painful and usually require surgery to repair.
🧬Stem Cell Therapy To The Rescue Stem cell therapy is a regenerative form of medicine that stimulates the body to heal itself. Stem cells are “blank” cells that promote the repair of injured tissues and can also help your tendons repair.
The stem cells used to repair your tendons come from either your own bone marrow or your own fatty tissues. After preparation, the stem cells are injected into or around the injury site. These cells quickly get to work repairing tissue and reducing inflammation to speed up healing.
🎉Here Is Really Good News: The added benefits of stem cell regenerative therapy are it can be completed in a single office visit. There is no general anesthesia needed. No hospital, and it is far less invasive and much less costly than any type of surgical tendon repair.
