Joint Pain and Soft Tissue
Joint and soft tissue injuries can be treated by stem cell treatment in Minnesota. Stem cells can often improve function and reduce pain in patients with chronic osteoarthritis (OA). In addition, acute injuries such as partial ligament and tendon tears can also be treated. Stem cells can potentially improve post-surgical recovery times and are quickly becoming a viable alternative to joint replacement surgery.
Severe knee, hip and shoulder pain are commonly treated conditions at Twin Cities Regenerative Medicine in Edina, Minnesota. Patient’s with golfer’s elbow or tennis elbow, can also be candidates for stem cell therapy to provide improve function and dramatically reduce pain.
Stem cell therapy is performed by injecting the patient’s own stem cells to stimulate the body to repair and replace damaged tissue in any joint or soft tissue structures – such as knees, shoulders, hips, wrists, ankles, elbows, tendons, ligaments and non-healing bone fractures.
Am I a Candidate for Joint & Soft Tissue Stem Cell Therapy
A suitable candidate for stem cell therapy for joints & soft tissue is someone who suffers from a painful cartilage injury from overuse, trauma, or debilitating conditions, including degenerative arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. Twin Cities Pain Autologous Adult Stem Cell Therapy can also be beneficial for patients suffering from tendonitis and ligamentous injuries. In addition, an excellent candidate for Stem Cell Therapy also has slow-healing or non-union fracture.
A lot of the preliminary work in joint and soft tissue stem cell therapy has focused on treating chronic injuries. However, at Twin Cities Pain & Regenerative Medicine, we are also starting to see improvements in recovery times for acute and sub-acute injuries. These acute and sub-acute injuries can include new onset partial tear of ligaments, tendons, bones, and cartilage. We are now seeing active Minnesotans and other patients return to activity more quickly with greatly decreased pain and improved mobility following early intervention for the acute and sub-acute injuries.
