If you suffer from pain due to damaged joints or tissues in your body, you’re not alone. Degeneration can take many forms. No matter what part of the body is affected, this damage can keep you from feeling healthy – and even stop you from doing the things you love. Bone marrow derived (BMAC) concentrate and the stem cells that come from your own body could be a solution. BMAC (BONE MARROW ASPIRATE CONCENTRATE) contains mesenchymal stem cells, some of the growth factors found in platelet-rich plasma and key plasma proteins.
If you don’t want to undergo invasive surgery or rely on medicine to cover up the problem, there are other modern solutions that could relieve your pain.
At OC Wellness Physicians Medical Group, we specialize in cutting-edge regenerative medicine treatments such as BMAC (BONE MARROW ASPIRATE CONCENTRATE) harvesting.
WHAT IS STEM CELL THERAPY?
Stem cell therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that stimulates healing within your body without invasive surgeries or pharmaceutical drugs.
Stem cells are present throughout your body and are an essential part of the cellular repair system. Stem cells provide new cells to replace old, damaged, or lost cells.
In stem cell therapy, we take stem cells and inject them into a damaged area of your body. Once injected, the stem cells stimulate your tissues to regenerate and repair themselves.
WHAT ARE BONE MARROW-DERIVED STEM CELLS?
Bone marrow is the tissue inside of your bones, where all your blood cells and other types of cells originate. Bone marrow contains two types of stem cells:
Hematopoietic stem cells, where all your blood cells come from
Mesenchymal stem cells, which become many different types of cells throughout your body.
Mesenchymal stem cells can turn into the cells found in your tissues, muscles, cartilage, fat, or bones. They are versatile and hold incredible healing properties. Because of this, they‘re widely used to treat many chronic conditions.
Mesenchymal stem cells are found in fat tissue as well as in bone marrow. However, bone marrow is extremely rich in mesenchymal cells, so this is where we obtain the stem cells we use in our bone marrow-derived stem cell therapy.
HOW CAN BONE MARROW-DERIVED STEM CELLS HELP YOU HEAL?
Bone marrow-derived stem cell therapy allows your body to rejuvenate itself naturally. Mesenchymal stem cells are multipotent stem cells that can self-renew and differentiate into various types of tissue.
In bone marrow-derived stem therapy, the stem cells are first drawn from your own bone marrow and then isolated and concentrated. They are then injected into the area of your body where you have degeneration, including tissue, cartilage, muscles, or even your bones.
Your stem cells are naturally programmed to stimulate healing. And this healing could bring you pain relief by reducing inflammation and repairing years of damage.
WHAT CAN BONE MARROW-DERIVED STEM CELL THERAPY TREAT?
Bone marrow-derived stem cell therapy has shown success in the treatment for many chronic conditions, including:
- Herniated discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Muscle injuries
If you’re living with daily pain due to tissue damage or a degenerative condition, stem cell therapy may be right for you.
BENEFITS OF STEM CELL THERAPY
Instead of using medications or surgeries to fix painful damage, why not give your body what it needs to heal on its own?
Through stem cell therapy, you can harness your own body’s healing ability, enabling damaged areas to fix themselves.
Not only that, but bone marrow-derived stem cell therapy provides:
- A minimally-invasive outpatient procedure
- Decreased inflammation at the site of pain
- Increased function to the degenerated area
- Pain relief right at the source
- An effective alternative to surgery
- Fast recovery after the procedure
- A safe, low-risk treatment
If you’re suffering from chronic pain, you have more options than just surgery or lifelong medication dependence. Our team at OC Wellness Physicians Medical Group is here to help you understand your options and get you back to living the life you love.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR VISIT
If you’re a candidate for bone marrow-derived stem cell therapy, we’ll discuss the procedure with you in more detail and make your treatment appointment.
During your treatment, we’ll first clean the area on your body where we’ll harvest your own stem cells. We’ll likely obtain the stem cells from your hip bone, as this area holds high concentrations of them.
We’ll give you a local anesthetic, but there is minimal discomfort during the procedure.
After the mesenchymal stem cells are extracted, they are prepared in a laboratory, where they’re isolated and concentrated. Our regenerative medicine experts then inject the prepared stem cells into your damaged tissues, starting your body’s healing process.
You can return home the same day as the treatment and typically get back to regular activity within 48 hours after the procedure. Bone marrow-derived stem cell therapy is safe and comes with minimal risk of side effects.
Most patients begin feeling results within two to four months and last up to a year. Some patients report the effects of treatment lasting for several years.
Don’t wait to start the journey towards healing painful, damaged areas in your body. Schedule a consultation with our caring team of pain-management specialists to see if bone marrow-derived stem cell therapy could be right for you.
