How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?

Stem cell therapy is a natural and effective method of treating chronic or serious knee injuries. Rather than seeking outside solutions from surgeries and medications, your own cells are used to facilitate recovery, enabling and maximizing your body’s ability to heal itself.

Your body contains a variety of stem cells that renew and can, when necessary, develop into other types of cells. These stem cells are essential for healing, but as we get older or suffer major injuries, we often do not have enough of these cells in the injured area to allow for proper repair.

That’s where stem cell therapy comes in.

With stem cell therapy, a physician uses a syringe to quickly and efficiently harvest stem cells from another area in your body. The stem cells are then concentrated and injected into your knee, so they can help your knee heal faster.

Stem Cell Therapy versus Traditional Treatment

In the past, chronic knee pain and serious injuries have generally been treated with arthroscopic surgery or total knee replacement. Both surgeries come with their own risks and the wait times to see a surgeon can be unreasonably—and painfully—long.

Knee replacement surgery can be traumatic and comes with a risk of implant failure, possibly requiring you to undergo further surgery to replace the damaged implant.  Furthermore, knee implant or arthroscopic surgery can require months of rehabilitation before the knee regains its strength and mobility. While the surgery may put you on the path to healing, you’re still being kept away from what you love to do.

By contrast, stem cell therapy is non-invasive and has a much shorter recovery time. Because the therapy uses your own cells to stimulate healing, there is no risk of your body rejecting the cells. The procedure itself can be done in one session, sometimes in as little as 30 minutes from the time the cells are harvested to the time they are implanted. And, you will likely be able to return to regular activity—even if that regular activity is far from ordinary—much more quickly than you would with traditional treatment.
