How Stem Cells Work
Joint pain is often caused by cartilage being worn down, and the degeneration of other parts of the body, and if that problem persists for too long you could end up with bone rubbing against bone. Cartilage is a smooth layer that protects your bones from rubbing against each other when they’re in use or resting. When the cartilage wears down the surface becomes rough, making it painful to move around, reducing flexibility, and after a day’s work, leaves you with sore and aching joints in your resting time.
Essentially, Stem Cell Therapy is able to reverse the breakdown of cartilage and restore your joints to their original condition. First, the doctors will collect stem cells from your own tissue. But don’t worry, this is completely non-surgical and no scalpels are necessary.
A needle is used to extract the stem cells and then after only a few minutes of preparation it is re-injected into the region that is causing you pain. From there the stem cells begin working on the worn down cartilage and repair it back to peak condition.
