Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What are stem cells?

You have unspecialized cells in your body that can become any type of cell necessary to heal a certain disease or tissue injury. Stem cells create more stem cells or specific cells, such as those for the heart, blood, or soft tissue.

Stem cells are used in regenerative therapy, a new branch of medicine that uses your own body’s natural healing capacity to reduce pain and improve function in compromised joints.

Where do stem cells come from?

Stem cells come from adult fat or bone marrow when used in a setting such as Phoenician Pain & Rehabilitation Center. Stem cells can be effectively harvested, treated, and reinjected into your body into the places that need healing. Stem cells that come into contact with diseased or dysfunctional tissue — especially those affected by osteoarthritis —  start to multiply and repair.

What health problems can stem cell therapy be used to treat?

Stem cell therapy can be used to treat sports injuries or arthritic pain. Dr. Sahai may recommend stem cell injections for:

  • Back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle sprains
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Muscle strains
  • Tendonitis and tendonosis

Not only can stem cell therapy improve pain from osteoarthritis, but some research suggests that the cells may help undo some of the damage the disease does to your joints.

What are the benefits of stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy gives men and women relief from pain and helps them get back to doing all the activities they love. Stem cell therapy is a relatively simple in-office procedure, and there’s no need for major anesthesia. Plus, the procedure requires no incisions or blood loss. This means easier healing and shorter recoveries.

When is stem cell therapy recommended?

Dr. Sahai may recommend stem cell therapy if your pain doesn’t respond to treatments such as over-the-counter pain medications, physical therapy, and muscle relaxants. Stem cell therapy is a good choice for people who want to feel better and more functional, but aren’t ready for surgery.
