Bone marrow cell therapy treats chronic pain using injections of stem cells from the patient’s bone marrow. Instead of merely treating symptoms, this therapy improves the underlying medical condition or injury by promoting cell repair, growth, and healing.
The marrow, which is spongy tissue inside the bone, produces stem cells which are capable of developing into many other kinds of cells to regenerate tissues such as bone, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments.
When injected into an area where there’s pain or injury, such as a joint, bone marrow stem cells immediately go to work. They reproduce and develop into the type of cell needed for the damaged area while stimulating growth and repair. This process speeds healing and begins to reduce pain.
Bone marrow cell therapy provides relief from pain caused by arthritis and injuries in many areas of the body, including:
There are two steps to the stem cell therapy procedure. First, Dr. Nassiri uses a needle to extract some of your bone marrow. He then places the marrow in a centrifuge, which spins at high speeds and separates the components.
Then the injection is prepared, and Dr. Nassiri injects the concentrated stem cells into spaces surrounding the damaged areas -- your spinal discs, for example.
After the procedure, you can go home the same day, although you may want to take it easy for a day or two. The natural healing process may entail inflammation and some mild-to-moderate discomfort at first, but these effects usually subside within a few days.
For optimal results, you might need several treatments over one week to three months. But you’ll probably feel positive results after only one or two treatments. Along with significant pain relief, you’ll enjoy an improved range of motion and flexibility. As a bonus, the reduction in pain may result in more restful sleep at night.
Bone marrow cell therapy can eliminate or reduce your need for other medications. And with this type of treatment, there’s no risky surgery or hospital stay.
Let Dr. Nassiri help you find much-needed pain relief so you can feel healthy again. Book your appointment online today, or call one of his offices for more information.
