Stem Cells For Ligament Sprains/Tears
A ligament sprain is an injury to a ligament in which the fibers tear as a result of over-stretching. Symptoms include swelling, bruising, local pain and weakness/instability of the joint. Most patients will improve with conservative therapy such as rest, ice, physical therapy and massage therapy. A small number of patients will continue to experience localized pain and weakness after a sprain or tear. Depending on the severity of the injury, some patients may require surgery.
Treatment with stem cells at the site of the injury can accelerate healing and improve healing in patients with chronic pain related to a ligament injury. Regenerative medicine treatments activate your body’s own adult stem cells and blood platelets to stimulate healing and speed repair.
