Stem Cell Therapy Q&A

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are the unspecialized cells or blank cells in your body. When needed, your body’s stem cells divide and differentiate into specialized cells, such as muscle, bone, or brain cells, to repair or replace damaged or diseased cells.

When it comes to health and medicine, stem cells may hold the answers to treating and curing chronic health conditions such as heart disease, Parkinson’s disease, or type 1 diabetes. Currently, pain management physicians like Dr. Sarij uses stem cells to support your body’s healing powers to alleviate acute and chronic pain conditions. 

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a form of regenerative medicine, which is a new area of medical care focused on treatments that support your body’s regenerative healing powers. During stem cell therapy, Dr. Sarij extracts the stem cells from your own body and injects them directly into the ill, debilitated, or wounded tissue to initiate and accelerate the repair process. 

Am I a good candidate for stem cell therapy?

Dr. Sarij determines if you’re a good candidate for stem cell therapy during your pain management consultation. Though stem cells may support the healing of your diseased or damaged tissue, Dr. Sarij may suggest other pain management treatments before recommending stem cell therapy. 

If conservative methods fail to alleviate your pain and restore normal function, he may recommend adding stem cell therapy to your treatment plan. At Integrated Spine And Pain Care, he uses stem cell therapy to help those suffering from:

  • Knee pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Meniscus tears
  • Hip arthritis
  • Labral tears
  • Shoulder pain
  • Tendinitis
  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Torn rotator cuff
  • Wrist and elbow pain
  • Ankle and foot pain
  • Non-healing fracture

Can stem cell therapy help my back pain?

Scientists and doctors have only just started to tap into the many potential uses for stem cell therapy. In addition to alleviating many chronic pain conditions, stem cell therapy may also benefit those suffering from chronic back pain caused by degenerative disc disease. 

When injected into your intervertebral disc, the stem cells cause an anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effect. The effect of your stem cell therapy not only eases your back pain but may also slow down the degenerative process of the chronic and progressive back condition.
