Stem Cell Therapy for Sport Medicine and Orthopedics

Stem Cell Therapy for Sport Medicine and Orthopedics

Sports are a foundational part of numerous people’s lives. From a young age, many people play sports to not only stay in shape but also learn about teamwork, passion, and commitment. Of course, one of the risks of playing sports involves injuries. If you have suffered an injury, then we know that you want to get back on the field as soon as possible. At Worldwide Treatment Centers, our goal is to help you get there. We leverage the power of regenerative medicine through stem cell therapy to help you recover from injuries.

What Happens When the Body Suffers an Injury?

There are numerous types of injuries that we see in our offices at Worldwide Treatment Centers. Some of the most common injuries that we see include:

  • Ligament sprains
  • Muscle strains
  • Broken bones
  • Torn ligaments
  • Generalized muscle soreness
  • ACL Tears
  • Injured Knees
  • Injured Shoulders
  • Injured Back
  • Injured Hips

When the body suffers an injury, the body actually does not replace this tissue with native tissue. Instead, the redness, inflammation, swelling, and pain is followed by scar tissue, which basically fills in the gaps. Because this scar tissue is not native tissue, it does not function as well. This is why, when someone suffers a severe injury, they never fully recover.

At Worldwide Treatment Centers, we are trying to change that. We leverage the power of stem cells to help people recover.

How Stem Cells Aid in the Injury Recovery Process

Stem cells are different from scar tissue because they are pluripotent. This means that they have the ability to become just about any cell in the body. For example, if someone has sprained a ligament and the stem cells are placed in the area of the ligament, then the stem cells will divide and become new ligament cells. Because ligament cells function better than scar tissue, this can help people recover more completely following an injury.

It is important to note that people will not see benefits immediately; however, depending on the severity of the injury, people might be able to recover more quickly and more completely. That is why this field is called regenerative medicine. With the right treatments from skilled providers, it is possible to replace this scar tissue with native tissue that will help athletes restore their mobility, flexibility, and functionality. Then, we can get athletes back on the field of play quickly. Furthermore, this could help patients avoid prescription medications and dangerous surgeries; however, in many cases, we use stem cell therapy to expedite the rehab process following surgery as well.

Are There Risks with Stem Cell Therapy?

While we do love the benefits of stem cell therapy, we also want patients to know about the risks that come with these treatment options. While the side effects of stem cell therapy are rare, there are a few risks to note. These include:

  • There is a mild risk that there could be some discomfort at the injection site.
  • There is always a chance that an infection might develop at the injection site. We make sure we work in sterile germ free conditions at all times to make sure this does not happen.

At Worldwide Stem Cell Centers, the patient’s safety always comes first.
