Stem Cells For Muscle Tears

Stem Cells For Muscle Tears

A muscle tear occurs when your muscle fibers are over stretched or torn. This usually occurs as a result of fatigue, overuse, or improper use of a muscle. They can happen in any muscle, but they are most common in lower back, neck ,shoulder, and hamstring.

Symptoms can include:
– Bruising
– Local Pain
– Weakness of the Muscle

Most patients will improve with physician-directed conservative therapy such as rest, ice, and physical therapy. A small number of patients will continue to experience localized pain and weakness after a tear. Depending on the severity of the injury, surgery may be required for some patients.

Treatment with stem cells at the site of the injury can accelerate healing and improve healing in patients with chronic muscle-related pain. Regenerative medicine treatments can activate your body’s own adult stem cells and blood platelets to stimulate healing and speed repair.
