Musculoskeletal Stem Cell Treatments
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are injuries or pain in the human musculoskeletal system, including the joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons, and structures that support limbs, neck, and back.
Musculoskeletal Stem Cell Treatment
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are conditions that can affect your muscles, bones, and joints.
MSDs are common. And your risk of developing them increases with age.
The severity of MSDs can vary. In some cases, they cause pain and discomfort that interferes with everyday activities. Early diagnosis and treatment may help ease symptoms and improve long-term outlook.
Your risk of developing MSDs is affected by: age, occupation, activity level, lifestyle and genetics.
Certain activities can cause wear and tear on your musculoskeletal system, leading to MSDs. These include: sitting in the same position at a computer every day, engaging in repetitive motions, lifting heavy weights and maintaining poor posture at work.
Stem Cell Treatment for Musculoskeletal Conditions
Arthritis & Osteoarthritis: Arthritis is a condition that causes pain and inflammation in joints. There are about 100 types of arthritis. Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common kind. It is a long-term, (chronic), degenerative joint disease. Degenerative means that it gets worse over time. It affects mostly middle-aged and older adults. OA causes the breakdown of joint cartilage. It can occur in any joint. But it most often affects the hands, knees, hips, or spine
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a long-term (chronic) disease that causes inflammation of the joints. The inflammation can be so severe that it affects how the joints and other parts of the body look and function. In the hand, RA may cause deformities in the joints of the fingers. This makes moving your hands difficult. Lumps, known as rheumatoid nodules, may form anywhere in the body.
Osteoporosis is a disease that causes weak, thinning bones. This puts the bones at greater risk of breaking. The bones most often affected are the hips, spine, and wrists. Researchers don’t know the exact cause for osteoporosis. But a number of factors contribute to the disease.
Bursitis is inflammation of a bursa. A bursa is a closed, fluid-filled sac that works as a cushion and gliding surface to reduce friction between tissues of the body. The major bursae (this is the plural of bursa) are located next to the tendons near the large joints, such as in the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees.
Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes pain in muscles and soft tissues all over the body. It is an ongoing (chronic) condition. It can affect your neck, shoulders, back, chest, hips, buttocks, arms, and legs. The pain may be worse in the morning and evening. Sometimes, the pain may last all day long. The pain may get worse with activity, cold or damp weather, anxiety, and stress. The condition affects about 1 in 50 to 1 in 25 people. It is most common in middle-aged women.
Back Pain can range from mild, dull, annoying pain, to persistent, severe, disabling pain in the lower back. Pain in the lower back can restrict mobility and interfere with normal functioning. The exact cause of low back pain can be hard to determine. In most cases, back pain may be a symptom of many different causes, most commonly: Overuse or strenuous activity, Injury, Degeneration of vertebrae, Muscle tension or spasm, Ligament or muscle tears Joint problems (such as spinal stenosis) or Protruding or herniated (slipped) disk.
Muscle, Tendon & Ligament Disorders: The most common soft tissues injured are muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These injuries often occur during sports and exercise activities, but sometimes simple everyday activities can cause an injury. Sprains, strains, and contusions, as well as tendinitis and bursitis, are common soft-tissue injuries. The most common regions we treat are the Knee, Shoulder, and Lower Back.
