What Are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are primitive cells in your body. They are the cells which don’t yet have a job to do. The idea behind stem cell treatment is that we inject them in an area of injury or inflammation, to help to regenerate cells which were damaged. These blank cells can differentiate into the cells that are required to repair tissues in the foot and ankle.
Benefits of Stem Cells
Stem cell therapy may help to slow the progression of certain disorders like arthritis by ramping up a response to reducing the inflammation and lowering pain levels. Stem cells may help to kick start the healing process which was at a stand-still.
Stem Cell Therapy is especially helpful in injuries which are particularly slow healing or immediately following an acute injury.
It is especially helpful if you’ve been told you need surgery. This may allow you to prevent a surgical procedure. This will also promote healing post-surgically. This will minimize your downtime and speedy up your recovery process to get you back to activity.
