Could you imagine your body having the inability to heal itself after tearing muscle tissue? Or the inability to replenish and replace dying and dead skin cells. Well that’s where stem cells come in. They do that and so much more.

A stem cell is unique to any other cell in your body because of its ability to renew and regenerate. They don’t carry out specialized functions like brain, red, or white blood cells, but they are a vital component in repairing and replacing damaged or torn tissue. After all, a cluster of stem cells is where the formation of every organ and tissue in your body came from.

Stem Cell Relief and Prevention for Osteoarthritis

There are many options for stem cell relief and prevention for osteoarthritis.  At Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA in Greenville, South Carolina we offer both autologous (from your own body) and placental derived treatment options.   In the autologous category choices include bone marrow and mesenchymal (fat) derived.  While these two options require minor surgery placental derived does not.   The results can be quicker with autologous stem compared to placental stem cells but often that is not the case and placental derived is much easier to do as no surgery is required.    While maximum outcomes may take a bit longer to achieve it is often worth the wait as placental derived stem cells don’t require any surgery and can cost less too.   In addition stem cells represent only one regenerative medicine approach.  Learn more about other options such as PRP and prolotherapy  at piedmontpmr.com and discover that  stem cell relief and prevention for osteoarthritis is  available right here in Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, and surrounding areas.
