Stem Cells For Sports & Orthopedic Injuries

Perhaps one of the fastest growing areas of regenerative medicine is the use of stem cells to heal sports injuries like: tendinopathy, damaged knees, injured shoulders, and even herniated discs.

While not yet the standard for care, many top athletes have been choosing stem cell therapy instead of surgery because it is less invasive and reduces recovery time. With less “down time” needed, more athletes have the ability to get back to their career faster and often a bit healthier.

But advanced treatments like stem cells are no longer just for professional athletes anymore! Anyone who wishes to have better mobility, reduced agitation, pain free activities, or simply have a more active lifestyle are great candidates for stem cell therapy.

Why Stem Cells?

Injuries can be debilitating! They can cause pain and lower the quality of life, both physically and emotionally. The normal practice for healing these injuries usually involves a mix of surgery, inactivity, and long-term use of pain medications. Unfortunately, even then, the injury may still be unhealed. This can result in an unhealthy reliance on drugs to manage pain. Pain management can in time, be its own problem.

Due to their regenerative nature, stem cells offer a different approach to the scalpel. They actually regrow tissue and support the body’s natural healing process.

Joints have very few nerve endings and almost low blood supply. Without a constant blood supply, they do not have a way to repair themselves.  Our proprietary Hypoxic Mesenchymal Stem Cells are capable of surviving the low oxygen environment inside the joint enhancing the chance for a long-term healing response.

When administered using ultrasound for precise placement, stem cells can substantially reduce pain, increase function, and repair ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. MSCs find the damaged tissue, repair it and create an anti-inflammatory response improving the overall health of the joint.

Here at CPI, we seek to enhance the benefits of MSCs with our synergetic treatments that have had proven success in greatly reducing inflammation.

What Types Of Sport Injuries Can Be Healed?

As mentioned before, the use of stem cells as a means to support the healing process, has increased in popularity. Some of the injuries being treated with stem cells are:

  • Back Pain
  • Elbow Injuries
  • Herniated Discs
  • Knee Injuries
  • Rotator Cuff Tears
  • Sciatica Pain
  • Torn Ligaments
  • Torn Meniscus
  • Torn Muscles
  • And more…
Stem Cells for Joints

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC’s) are “multipotent” cells that are present in adult tissues throughout the body. They also have the ability to self-renew by “dividing” to become: bone, cartilage, muscle and fat cells, and connective tissue. This ability to become other tissues is what makes them so appealing.
