At Appalachian Orthopedics, we are dedicated to offering the latest and most advanced treatments and procedures. That’s why we offer stem cell injection therapy as a nonsurgical treatment option for soft-tissue injuries and chronic conditions.
Also known as bone marrow concentrate therapy, stem cell injections use adult stem cells, which are found in your bone marrow and are able to become several different kinds of cells, such as bone, muscle, tendon, and blood cells.
In a stem cell injection, stem cells will be extracted from your own bone marrow. The extracted stem cells will then be concentrated and injected into the treatment site. Once injected, the stem cells may help to heal your injury or condition.
Stem cell therapy can be used to treat many injuries and conditions, including:
- ACL sprains and tears
- Articular cartilage injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Degenerative disc disease
- Degenerative joint disease
- Labral tears
- Partial rotator cuff tears
- Trigger fingers
