Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative stem cell therapy?

Regenerative stem cell therapy uses growth factors derived from umbilical cord blood to support your body’s natural healing process. Stem cells are unique in that they’re the foundation for all of the other cells in your body. In a laboratory setting, stem cells can transform into any other type of cell, including blood cells, muscle cells, or skin cells.

This unique ability makes them ideal for treating musculoskeletal injuries caused by sports, work, illness, or general wear-and-tear. When a solution of highly concentrated stem cells enters a damaged or ailing joint, it promotes blood flow to the area, encouraging the production of new, healthy cells and tissue.

Where do regenerative stem cells come from?

At Restore Osteo of Colorado, the team uses regenerative stem cells collected from umbilical cord blood. These stem cells are of the highest quality and don’t come from any other source. The harvesting process is entirely safe and has no negative effects on the infant or mother. 

The team houses the umbilical cord blood in several onsite freezing units. That ensures the stem cells maintain their integrity until treatment time. 

What types of problems can regenerative stem cell therapy treat?

At Restore Osteo of Colorado, the team uses regenerative stem cell therapy to treat illnesses and injuries that affect the musculoskeletal system, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Ankle pain
  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Wrist pain
  • Hip pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Work injuries
  • General wear-and-tear

You might also benefit from regenerative stem cell therapy following surgery. A series of injections can speed up your recovery process, limiting swelling and inflammation.

Am I a good candidate for regenerative stem cell therapy?

To determine if you’re a good candidate for regenerative stem cell therapy, your Restore Osteo of Colorado provider conducts a physical exam, asks you about your lifestyle and symptoms, and reviews your medical history.

During your exam, your provider gently presses on the affected joint, looking for redness, warmth, or swelling. Next, they observe your gait and posture and determine your range-of-motion with a series of simple exercises. 

If you have a mild or moderate injury that won’t respond to rest or physical therapy, you’re probably a good candidate for treatment. The number of injections you need depends on the severity of your symptoms and their effect on your quality of life. 

Is regenerative stem cell therapy safe?

Regenerative stem cell therapy is safe and well-tolerated. To ensure a speedy recovery, follow your provider’s instructions carefully.
