Throughout your lifetime, stem cells inside your body have the job of healing damaged tissues. Any time you suffer an injury or disease takes hold, stem cells go to the site and produce new stem cells. The new cells then develop into all the different tissues you need to heal.
Stem cell therapy is an injection of concentrated stem cells. As the injected cells regenerate new tissues, your body heals faster, inflammation goes down, and you get relief from the pain.
Pain Care, LLC, in conjunction with the Stem Cell Institute of Georgia, does stem cell therapy using concentrated bone marrow aspirate (BMA). Bone marrow, a spongy substance in your bones, is a rich source of stem cells. Your provider takes a bone marrow sample from your hip and processes it using the Harvest® Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate System.
The Harvest system spins your bone marrow sample and, in about 15 minutes, produces a concentrated amount of stem cells for your injection. In addition to stem cells, your BMA contains platelets that accelerate the healing process, white blood cells, and cells that promote new blood vessel growth.
The stem cells harvested from BMA regenerate new muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bones, connective tissue, and skin. As a result, stem cell therapy works well for people who need to heal musculoskeletal conditions.
Whether you have arthritis, chronic back and neck pain, leg pain, a sports injury, or an overuse injury, stem cells can help. Stem cells also heal most inflammatory conditions such as tendinitis and bursitis because they diminish inflammation. Additionally, stem cells may accelerate nerve regeneration.
During a bone marrow extraction, your provider applies a local anesthetic. Then they use a specialized needle to reach into the bone and suction out a sample of bone marrow.
They place the sample in the Harvest centrifuge, wait for the processing to finish, then use real-time imaging to precisely guide the needle to the injured tissues.
The entire process only takes about an hour, and then you go home. Your provider talks with you about mild swelling at the injection site and any activity limitations you should follow.
