Why is Stem Cell Therapy Popular in Mesa, AZ?
Stem cells are specialized cells capable of renewing themselves to become another type of cell. Only stem cells can regenerate and turn into a different cell. Stem cell therapy provided by our Mesa chiropractor is considered a sub-category of the field of regenerative medicine, a cutting-edge field of healthcare that endeavors to replaced damaged soft tissue cells with stem cells to promote tissue regeneration.
With nearly 32 percent of Mesa residents over the age of 45, our chiropractors stay busy treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders. The most common disorders addressed by our chiropractors include degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis, lower back pain, joint pain, herniated disc, and sciatica. Instead of taking medications or opting for surgery that may or may not relieve pain, many of our patients are choosing stem cell therapy over surgery for treating chronic pain conditions.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
Stem cells can be cultivated in laboratories or taken from certain parts of the body and used to regenerate damaged soft tissues. For example, if knee cartilage is badly deteriorated due to a disease or injury, a chiropractor will inject stem cells into the knee, where they eventually become cartilage cells. These new cells can then start restoring cartilage health, reduce pain, and increase flexibility of the previously stiff knee.
One study found that patients with advanced osteoarthritis who received stem therapy experienced an increased range of motion and pain relief up to five years following therapy. A review of studies involving stem cell therapy indicates that stem cells derived from bone marrow, bursa, dental pulp, and joint fluid have successfully regenerated soft tissues damaged due to osteoarthritis and osteonecrosis.
