Whether you’re a paintballer, golfer, weekend runner, cross fit fanatic, or have kids in organized sports, we sincerely hope you’ve never suffered a serious sports injury. But if you have, you’ll probably never forget that “pop,” “rip,” “pull,” or “crack,” and the kind of pain you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy. And that’s just the beginning.
After treatment, which might involve surgery to repair the damage, you could be looking at months of recovery and rehab to get back into your game. At this point, you might be thinking, “There must be a way to recover faster.” And this is where we tell you, “there is.”
Sports injuries can be treated by stem cells
When it comes to treating sports injuries, whether due to a one-time trauma or chronic overuse, stem cells can be applied to a range of sports injuries, including those involving damage to:
Stem cells, when placed into damaged tissue, can transform to meet a certain need. For example, stem cells placed near a damaged Achilles tendon could develop into healthy Achilles tendon cells; fueling the growth of healthy tissue.
What’s so special about stem cells? They are different than any other human cell of the body, such as skin, muscle or liver cells. Stem cells are unique because they can:
- Split and duplicate themselves.
- Morph into various types of cells. A stem cell alone does not serve a specific bodily function, but it can develop into a cell that does, such as a cartilage cell or a tendon cell.
Stem cells can be applied to an injured area via nonsurgical injection. Which just so happens to be available at Right Path Pain & Spine Centers. Our advanced stem cell therapy in Orlando and Davenport is conveniently performed on site. Most people go back to work or school the next day, and many report noticing improved mobility and decreased pain shortly after their stem cell injection.
