If muscle pain, swelling, or loss of function is affecting your ability to walk, run, or stand, you may be suffering from an intramuscular tear. Muscle injury usually occurs during strenuous activities like sports, high impact exercise, heavy physical labor, or lifting. One wrong move or handful on a muscle may strain or even tear it, causing severe pain and impairing movement.
Regenerative medicine offers one of the most effective muscle tear treatments known to science: stem cell therapy. This treatment may repair your torn muscle without the need for invasive surgeries or potentially dangerous medications.
When you exert too much force on your muscle you risk tearing it. Your muscles are flexible, but overextending them abruptly can strain them, causing a painful tear.
Muscle tears are more common among people who participate in strenuous physical activities like sports or physical labor. However, a hard impact, stressful muscle strain, or car accident can also cause a muscle tear.
Potentially dangerous medications or risky, expensive surgeries aren’t always necessary. Stem cell products may promote your body’s ability to reduce or eliminate pain and stimulate natural muscle tissue restoration – cell by cell.
Whenever you suddenly and forcefully twist or rotate, aggressively pivot, or stop and turn your knee, you risk tearing your meniscus. Kneeling, deep squatting, or heavy lifting can also cause a tear. Athletes who play contact sports like football, basketball, tennis, soccer, or lacrosse, as well as runners who jog on uneven terrain, are at a higher risk for a meniscus tear. The degenerative changes that come with aging can also cause a torn meniscus with little or no trauma.
Unlike surgery, which removes flesh and bone, regenerative medicine applies live harvested stem cells. These are injected directly into your pain site, stimulating your damaged cells tore generate, gradually reconstructing your painful tissue, reducing or eliminating your pain, repairing your muscle, and restoring your range of movement.
Your provider will use live x-ray or ultrasound imaging for guidance, so the injection will be delivered precisely into the area where your damaged cells are causing your pain.
The stem cell product your provider introduces into your tissue may continue producing human growth factors for weeks, or even months. The duration of active stem cell therapy varies depending on your age, body type, genetics, general health, and injury severity. Treatment success rates also vary depending on these factors. Our goal is to enable you to return to your regular work and leisure activities as much as possible.
When the cells in your muscle become injured, they send out biochemical signals via your endocrine system. Stem cells respond to those signals, rushing to the injured area and releasing proteins that nourish and stimulate your cells to begin regenerating.
When these stem cells dock next to your damaged cells they release:
These potent proteins then activate T-cells, opening up your blood vessels and forming new ones. Then the cells migrate out of your blood vessels and into the tissues surrounding them, stimulating your cells to regenerate your muscle, reduce your inflammation, and help regulate your immune system.
Stem cells sourced exclusively from the umbilical cord blood of healthy newborn babies. When a pregnant woman decides not to keep and store her unborn child’s umbilical cord, she may wish to donate it. After the mother signs an informed consent form, her practitioner will do a blood test and a medical and personal review. If the new mother meets all donor eligibility requirements, her child’s umbilical cord blood is collected in a sterile pouch and sent to the lab for processing, within 48 hours, using proprietary methods.
A sample of the finished product is tested by an independent third-party lab for sterility. Once the lab reports have passed all regulatory requirements, the umbilical cord stem cells are able to be distributed.
Modern scientific research and experience during the past 20 years have given us a robust protocol for many different types of injuries. After examining your medical history and general health, as well as determining the severity of your injury, your health care provider will decide how many million cells are needed to treat your specific injuries as effectively as possible under your unique health circumstances.
You’ll probably experience pain relief right after your treatment. Tissue regeneration times vary depending on your age, genetics, injury type, and how closely you follow your post-treatment care and rehabilitation program. The state of your health and the amount of rest you get during recovery also play a role in your relief rate.
Most patients who desire efficacious regenerative healing beyond just symptom relief are good stem cell therapy candidates. If you prefer to avoid painful surgeries and potentially addictive prescription medications, stem cell therapy may be the treatment you’ve been seeking.
