Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy offers a pain relief treatment using stem cells from your own body, typically harvested from adipose (fat cells) or bone marrow. However, this can be an uncomfortable process, with not so impressive results.
Our doctors provide regenerative cell therapy for many patients throughout New Jersey using mesenchymal stem cells instead. This is not only a less invasive treatment but also far more reliable. We use healthy, young cells that contain far more effective regenerative properties and are collected from a pre-screened donor.
Types of Stem Cells
Stem cell therapy has become highly popular as stem cells have the ability to adapt to their environment. In general terms, stem cell therapy refers to treatments that depend on the patient’s own stem cells.
Stem cells can be harvested from a healthy area of the body and injected into areas with issues, such as injury, debilitation, or aging. Once introduced, they replicate themselves, introducing more healthy cells to begin the healing process.
Unfortunately, not all stem cells are as effective when it comes to pain management and healing. The most commonly used stem cells for stem cell therapy include:
Stem cells are harvested by drilling a small hole in your hip. This is a painful procedure with the risk of infection. In older patients, using their own aged stems cells is not as effective. These cells are less able to heal and restore than young cells.
These cells are found in body fat. They are harvested using a procedure similar to liposuction, which is very uncomfortable and risky. As well, adipose tissue is less dependable than other cells as they are more likely to contain harmful toxins.
Stem Cell Treatment
We do not feel bone marrow or adipose stem cells are worth the risk. They both require invasive procedures to access the cells, yet do not guarantee positive outcomes. That is why we use mesenchymal stem cells derived from umbilical allografts for our Toms River, New Jersey patients.
This extremely healthy tissue is harmlessly donated during the birth process, providing the youngest and healthiest stem cells available. It is the least invasive stem cell treatment, not only for you but also for the donor.
As part of regenerative cellular treatments, mesenchymal stem cells provide the highest and healthiest concentration of the properties required to repair damaged tissue effectively. Mesenchymal stem cells repair damaged structures to restore function in the body part.
Stem Cell Treatment for Pain
Our stem cell treatments offer the most favorable outcome for pain relief as they do not mask pain. Instead, the healing properties contained within the injection allow your body to heal. By healing the tissue with useful stem cells, we provide a long-term pain management solution for people living throughout Ocean County, New Jersey. This treatment is highly effective for several issues including:
- Back pain
- Joint pain
- Hip pain
- Damaged or degraded cartilage
- Torn ligament
- Neuropathy (i.e., numbness in hands and feet)
- Plantar fasciitis
- Bulging, herniated, torn, slipped, or ruptured discs
- Bone issues (i.e., osteoporosis)
Our stem cell injections provide results for degenerative conditions by regenerating bone, cartilage, and other broken down tissues.
