There are many great treatments on the market this day and age for problems causing foot pain. The issue is that many people don’t know about them or think they know how they work. Stem cell treatment for foot pain falls into both categories. Some of the reasons you might have overlooked the use of stem cells is because it sounds too scientific, futuristic, or something a little too good to be true for you to consider. Don’t sell yourself short. There may well be some misconceptions or even fears you have about stem cell therapy, but they are probably not true or worth worrying about!
Stem cell therapy is not –
There is a lot of controversy around the use of stem cells. More specifically, it’s the type of stem cells that are used. Adler Footcare uses only ethical methods of stem cell treatment because it uses cells taken from the amniotic sac of live births, not embryonic cells. The stem cell controversy revolves around the use of embryonic cells because of the usage and destruction of human embryos. However, amniotic cells are generated from the placenta and taken from the amniotic sac of live births during a woman’s C-section.
Stem cell treatment for foot pain uses a minimally invasive technique to inject the stem cells into the area feeling pain. A minimally invasive procedure doesn’t cause any trauma to the foot; and is performed simply by making a very small incision the size of a pinprick. Fluoroscopy is used to determine the exact position for injection.
When stem cell therapy is used healing occurs twice as fast. As the stem cells help regenerate tissues and minimize swelling, the patient is able to experience more range of motion, less inflammation, and less post-operative pain. The treatment itself is also quick and effective and the stem cells begin working immediately to regenerate new cells in the affected area.
Stem cell treatment is nothing short of miraculous. Stem cells are cells that haven’t yet determined their role in the body, so they are able to turn into just about anything. If you put them in a place that has a tendon, whether it’s torn or not, they’ll produce a tendon. If you have damaged tissue, stem cells can help recreate it. Hopefully, someday they will even be used to help regrow organs, but for now they have a definite use to help problems causing foot pain.
The New York podiatrists at Adler Footcare have been using stem cell therapy for more than 2 ½ years, without one negative result. It can help anyone – from someone who has a running injury to a person living with Diabetes. It’s a remarkable treatment because it can also be used in tandem with other treatments to regenerate new, healthy cells in the cartilage, bone, tendon, and skin; and helps speed healing time.
Hopefully this information has helped clarify some pre-conceived notions you had about stem cell treatment, or shed some new light on how beneficial the treatment can be for foot pain.
