Understanding Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy is garnering an incredible amount of attention these days, and for good reason. While many have long known about the amazing regenerative power that stem cells possess, researchers are now cracking the code when it comes to harnessing this power through stem cell therapy.

At No Mercy Sports Medicine, Dr. Moisés Irizarry-Román and our team pride ourselves on offering the latest treatments to help patients regain pain-free mobility. Whether you’re dealing with a soft tissue injury or achy joints, explore how stem cells may hold the key for getting you back to your active lifestyle.

The amazing power of stem cells

Stem cells are among nature’s most amazing marvels, as they have the ability to become other cells and then multiply indefinitely as that cell. In fact, stem cells are the building blocks upon which most other cells are formed.

Stem cells are most potent and numerous during embryonic development as they build a new life from the ground up, one cell at a time. To accomplish this, stem cells divide into daughter cells, which either continue on as stem cells or become specialized cells, such as brain cells, liver cells, or skin cells.

In other words, stem cells have the unique ability to generate new cell types, which makes them highly adaptive.

As an adult, you also possess stem cells throughout your body, mainly located in your adipose tissue or bone marrow. These stem cells aren’t quite as powerful as they were during embryonic development, but they still jump into action where needed to help regenerate and repair damaged tissues.

However, this process may not occur as quickly as you’d like, or be as strong as you need, which is where our stem cell therapy comes in.

Calling on your own cells

Through our stem cell therapy, we harvest your own stem cells and transfer them to where you need them most. With this type of therapy, we’re simply redirecting your own healing resources to accelerate repair and regeneration of both hard and soft tissue.

The procedure is fairly easy, and we routinely use stem cell therapy to address a wide range of musculoskeletal issues, such as:

We’ve also found that stem cell therapy is very useful in helping our patients heal more quickly after orthopedic surgery.

Most of our patients benefit from several stem cell treatments, which we space apart to allow time for the cells to go to work. Over the weeks following your stem cell therapy, you should see gradual improvement as your tissues rebuild themselves from within with the help of your own stem cells.

If you’d like to learn more about the amazing potential of our stem cell therapy, please contact one of our two locations in Fort Lauderdale or Miami, Florida, to set up a consultation.
