With new technologies, medicinal procedures can now take the regenerative effect of stem cells and use it throughout the body to both restore and regenerate a multitude of tissues.
During regenerative human embryonic stem cell therapy, your podiatrist injects stem cells into the area that’s causing your pain. These cells travel until they come in contact with damaged cells and tissue, which they then attempt to restore. What’s more, these stem cells often stimulate your body’s healing response, increasing growth factors and other building blocks in the area, repairing even more tissue.
What Are Stem Cells?
Stems cells are undifferentiated, or unspecialized, cells that have the potential to develop into a variety of other types of cells, including those that constitute muscles, blood, and cartilage. Stem cells exist in your body, primarily in your bone marrow and gastrointestinal tract, where they divide and repair existing tissue.
Regenerative stem cell therapy helps target many conditions, including:
- Foot pain
- Sports-related injuries
- Plantar fasciitis
- Acute and chronic wounds
Because of their unique ability to both renew themselves and transform into other types of cells, stem cells are becoming an integral part of regenerative medicine, which enhances your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Who Can Benefit From Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy?
Regenerative stem cell therapy can help with a variety of conditions. It’s especially effective with degenerative diseases such as arthritis. Regenerative stem cell therapy may also improve conditions like fibromyalgia or help when tendons and ligaments become injured.
Those who have regenerative stem cell therapy experience a range of benefits, including:
- Increased mobility and function
- Reduced or even eliminated pain
- Regenerated tissue growth
- Enhanced healing
- Modulate inflammation
- Reduces scar tissue formation
When Can You Expect Results After Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy?
When you have regenerative stem cell therapy at Alliance Foot & Ankle Specialists, the whole procedure takes about an hour. Once it’s over, you’re free to go, and in most cases, you’ll have no restrictions. Although some patients begin to notice results in a few weeks, it can take three to six months for the stem cells to proliferate and regenerate, bringing you the maximum benefits. In many cases, only one regenerative stem cell treatment is necessary. If multiple treatments are required, your podiatrist requests that you wait at least six months between treatments.
If you think regenerative stem cell therapy could benefit you, there’s no reason to wait — contact Alliance Foot & Ankle Specialists today.
