Bone marrow is the stem cell-rich spongy tissue within a bone’s cavity. Bone marrow has become an advanced form of cellular therapy used to accelerate healing in tendon injuries and reduce the joint pain that comes from osteoarthritis. The concentrated stem cells within the fluid promote healing and tissue regeneration. At Regenerative Sports, Spine & Spa we provide bone marrow cellular therapy to our patients for rapid healing and repair of damaged tissues.
What Is the Main Benefit of Using Bone Marrow?
Adult stem cells, also known as mesenchymal stem cells, exist within bone marrow. However, as we age, we have less of these cells available to respond to an injury or joint inflammation and speed up the healing process. That’s one of the main reasons why injuries become more severe and crippling as we get older. Similar to unmined gold, bone marrow stem cells are just waiting to be extracted for healing purposes. They are invaluable because they possess the ability to replicate into multiple different types of tissues within the body. Studies have shown that a bone marrow stem cell treatment can reduce swelling and inflammation, relieve pain, and improve healing time.
What Can I Expect During a Bone Marrow Treatment?
At Regenerative Sports, Spine & Spa one of our main goals is to treat your injury or chronic pain naturally, so we can help you avoid the need for a major surgery. During our bone marrow aspirate (BMA) treatment you’ll have a minimally invasive procedure to obtain the BMA. We always put the comfort our patients first, so we will numb the area before we extract the bone marrow. Our doctor will obtain a sample of bone marrow, which will be removed with a needle and syringe. That sample will be spun down in a centrifuge to separate the cells. Once the cells have separated, the liquid with a high concentration of cells is then injected directly into the site of injury or chronic pain (knee, shoulder, hip, etc.) to begin the healing process.
