Stem Cell Therapy in Utah
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem Cell Therapy is a one of the most exciting areas in all of modern medicine. The treatment of joint pain and injuries appears to be on the verge of a revolution. Leading this revolution are the continued discoveries and development of Orthopedic Stem Cell Therapy’s healing capabilities. At South Valley OrthoMed, we offer the latest technology in orthopedic stem cell treatments to the entire Salt Lake Valley. With more than 35 years of orthopedic experience, our patients receive treatment by the most qualified and capable hands around, namely, experienced, board-certified orthopedic surgeons.
Stem cells are, in short, nature’s original construction crew. Naturally produced by the human body, stem cells possess the incredible ability to change and adapt into more specialized cell types. Think of them as growth, or developmental cells, still in their infancy. In Stem Cell Therapy these multitalented cells are injected into a specific, damaged area of the body. The cells are then able to grow and reproduce themselves. They mature and contribute to their surrounding environment, particularly in repairing damaged tissue. When stem cells enter damaged tissue, they receive signals that instruct them to differentiate. Damaged tendons, ligaments, bones, cartilage, muscle and even damaged skin, are all treatable with stem cells.
How can it help you?
When it comes to joint pain, traditional treatments such as cortisone shots do not offer long-term healing potential. But by stimulating nature’s building blocks, Stem Cell Therapy can switch on and greatly increase the body’s natural healing capabilities. This can then provide long-term pain relief, without requiring steroid injections or surgery. Unfortunately after age 40, the amount and potency of our own naturally produced stem cells significantly decreases year by year. This is why a cut finger for a 3-year-old heals in three days, but for a 70-year-old it can take weeks. The amount and potency of stem cells are significantly higher for younger, growing bodies.
No joint is immune to damage or age-related wear, and every joint is a potential candidate for stem cell injections. Our treatments increase the amount and potency of stem cells, activating the human body’s natural regenerative process. We employ time-tested injection techniques to deliver these stem cells directly to damaged tissues, and trust Mother Nature to turn back the clock on Father Time.
