Stem cells are the primary basic cell template that can change to become cells of different tissues. Stem cell therapy works by injecting live cells into a damaged tissue and the cells regenerate and heal the damaged tissue. Regenerative medicine uses stem cells to heal torn meniscus, torn rotator cuffs, knee arthritis, and many other types of pain. Stem cells serve as the body’s internal repair system.
When injected into the injured area, stem cells become the cells of the tissue that need regenerating and create and grow only what’s needed such as cartilage, ligament, tendon, muscle, disc, bone, nerve, etc. Enzymes from the inflammation in the body tell the stem cells what to become. For this reason, it is vital to NOT take anti inflammatory medications 2 days prior to the injection and for 4 weeks after. Stem cell therapy is a great alternative to surgery which is often expensive and painful.
