AMNIOTIC STEM CELL THERAPY

Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy

Amniotic Stem Cell therapy is a treatment that utilizes very potent donated stem cells to help heal soft-tissue and joint injuries faster than the body is able to do on its own. Other therapeutic options, such as steroid injections, provided only short-term relief of pain and inflammation, and come with a risk of significant side effects, especially if given repetitively. Not only can stem cell therapy treat a wide range of degenerative disorders, but it can also accelerate the time it takes for an athlete to be able to return a sport. Originally developed as a therapy in the fields of dentistry and cardiology in the 1980’s, there has been an explosion of applications for stem cell therapy in sports and rehabilitation medicine. 

Amniotic stem cells are harvested by amniotic fluid and tissues donated from uncomplicated deliveries via cesarean section, hence there is no ethical concerns because the cells are not obtained from embryonic tissue. Although mesenchymal stem cells exist in our own bone marrow and adipose (fat) tissue, harvesting them directly from the patient may cause considerable discomfort and it is well known that the potency of our stem cells after age 40 diminish significantly. Amniotic stem cells contain a high concentration of cells that can initiate and sustain wound healing at the site of the injury as well as produce a sustained supply of anti-inflammatory cells. Utilizing ultrasound guidance to precisely visualize the target tissue, the stems cells are placed where it will be most effective. Injecting stems cells at the tendons, ligaments, muscles and cartilage helps promote rapid healing at the site of these tissues, which would normally heal very slowly on their own. The procedure is simple and completed during one patient office visit. 
Because stem cells help regenerate tissue, it is an investment in long-term health and is not regarded as a short-term pain management strategy. In the realm of Rehabilitation medicine, we strive to do everything possible to improve function and alleviate pain. Amniotic stem cell therapy is an excellent and effective weapon in the arsenal of battling musculoskeletal disease.
