Living with an injury or wound that just won’t heal? Some injuries take a long time to heal; especially injuries to the musculoskeletal system, such as sprains, strains, tears, and fractures. These injuries – and any injury that takes a long time to heal can keep you from your favorite activities and exercise.
They can also keep you from just living a normal life without pain and discomfort. Many people that find themselves living with injuries turn to treatments such as rest, pain relievers, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, and even surgery. But, each of these treatments carries a risk. They’re not your only available options. You have another choice, too. You have stem cell therapy for sports injuries from Innovations Medical.
Why do some injuries take longer to heal?
Some injuries, particularly musculoskeletal injuries, take longer to heal because of low blood flow to the injury site. When circulation in the area around the injury is poor, the necessary nutrients for healing, such as oxygen, blood, and growth factors don’t make it to the site to start the healing process. When this happens, it can mean the tissue in the area of injury is weakened – even after healing.
How do stem cells help sports injuries?
Stem cell therapy provided by Innovations Stem Cell can help heal slow-healing sports injuries and other types of injuries by harnessing the healing power of your stem cells and putting them right where you need them. Our stem cell therapy takes fat from another area of your body and spins it to separate your stem cells from blood and other tissue. These stem cells are then introduced back into your body at the site of your injury or through an IV. Once deployed back into your body, the stem cells go to work healing your damaged tissue.
Say, what? Yes, it’s true. Since stem cells are the most basic building blocks of the body, they are fundamental to healing. Stem cells also carry powerful growth factors that tell the immune system to send help in the form of healing proteins and white blood cells. The result is faster healing and stronger tissue. Other benefits to you include less pain and improved quality of life.
