Stem Cell Injections
Regenerative medicine is an emerging branch of medicine that utilizes stem cells to foster the body’s own regenerative and repair mechanisms. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can grow into whatever is needed nearby. At Caliber Pain™ in Midtown Manhattan, we offer advanced options in regenerative medicine, including stem cell injections.
The stem cells that are most often associated with tissue repair are the mesenchymal stem cells (MSC). Mesenchymal stem cells are formed in adipose tissue and bone marrow harvested from the pelvis and other sources. They are specialized cells that naturally grow in our body and can differentiate into bone, cartilage or fat cells. They are widely used in medicine as a natural healing solution to effectively treat orthopedic conditions with the spine and major joints (like the shoulder, hip, knee, ankle and more).
Regenerative Medicine Injections
In a healthy individual, these cells travel to injured areas in the body via the bloodstream. Injury to joints, meniscus tissue, rotator cuffs, spinal discs and other tendons result in a poor blood supply to that area. Consequently, the body is not able to get enough repair cells to the injured areas. By injecting the injured areas with concentrated stem cells, we imitate improved blood supply and provide the raw materials needed for the body to heal and repair itself. Injections we offer at Caliber Pain™ include:
After treatment, stem cells can promote re-growth of cartilage, ligaments, tissues and nerves. While results will vary, most patients are surprised and pleased by the improvement they feel just a month or two after treatment.
Regenerative medicine using stem cell injections can help heal damaged tissue from degenerative disorders or injury. To learn more about our stem cell therapy options, contact our regenerative medicine specialists at Caliber Pain™ in UES New York City.
