If you're suffering from joint and soft tissue injuries, there is an alternative to surgery. These problems can be treated by stem cell treatment. Stem cells can often improve function and reduce pain in patients with chronic osteoarthritis (OA), partial ligament and tendon tears.Joint and soft tissue injuries treated with stem cell therapy include:
- Hands and Feet
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Tennis and Golfers Elbow
- Bicep Tendonitis
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 and soft tissue is someone who suffers from a painful cartilage injury from overuse, trauma, or debilitating conditions, including degenerative arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. Adult Stem Cell Therapy can also be beneficial for patients suffering from tendonitis and ligamentous injuries.
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 seeing improvements in recovery times for acute and sub-acute injuries. We also are 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.

Stem cell therapy does not work for everyone. At this time, the FDA has not approved it as a treatment for musculoskeletal conditions.
