For people suffering from joint pain or soft tissue injuries, surgery has long been the only option for relief. Stem cell therapy is a new treatment that is proving to be a successful pain relief alternative to surgery. Lyceum Physical Medicine is pleased to bring this revolutionary treatment to the Philadelphia area.
What is Stem Cell and Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy?
Stem cells are undefined cells that lay dormant in your body. They have the ability to become any cell your body needs them to be, from skin tissue to heart muscle. They also have the ability to make more cells. The regenerative potential in these cells makes them a unique tool to treat various conditions.
In stem cell therapy, blood from bone marrow is removed and processed to isolate stem cells and check growth factors. Once processed, the stem cells are then injected into and around the problem joint, often in conjunction with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The stem cells then become the new tissue, replacing the damaged tissue.
In PRP, the plasma in your blood is concentrated and injected into the problem area. The platelet-rich plasma provides essential proteins and nutrients, thereby enhancing the reparative process. Our PRP and stem cell treatments can provide the improvement and quality of life traditional medical processes have failed to give.
