How Does Orthopedic Stem Cell Therapy Work?

Stem Cell Therapy Tampa Stem cell therapy is an exciting breakthrough in orthopedic care that may help facilitate recovery in some patients with musculoskeletal issues. A form of regenerative medicine, this treatment focuses on generating new, healthy tissues to promote healing in damaged joints. Conversely, many forms of traditional medicine concentrate solely on relieving symptoms.

A stem cell is essentially the body’s raw material that is capable of producing more cells of the same type. During stem cell therapy, stem cells are injected into a damaged joint or tissue. These cells have the ability to divide and create new cells, potentially helping rebuild cartilage, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Because stem cells are naturally derived and drug-free, the side effects of treatment are minimal, if at all.
