Stem Cell Injections
Stem cells are versatile cells within the body that can be used for regenerating new tissue. While some cells can only be used for specific tissue, stem cells are like a blank canvas and may be used in many areas of the body. Harvesting these stem cells and injecting them in areas of the body that need to regenerate tissue can stimulate repair and healing. Our pain specialists at DOCS Health utilize stem cell injections and other interventional treatments for pain relief at our medical center in Los Angeles, CA.
Stem cells come in many varieties, from embryonic stem cells that are used to create the fetus during pregnancy to adult stem cells that are found all throughout the body. While stem cells can have incredible abilities in tissue repair, this form of regenerative medicine is still evolving. Simply injecting stem cells into an area cannot reverse all damage from disease, injury or aging, but there is evidence of benefits for many pain conditions, including arthritis, tendonitis and joint pain.
Stem Cell Therapy for Chronic Pain
Stem cell injections can be beneficial for degenerative conditions in the joints, spine and soft tissues. Since many of these cells can be used for regenerating multiple tissues and helping reduce inflammation, they are very versatile. There are different stem cell treatments available, including stem cells that are autologous, derived from the patient’s body, and stem cells harvested from other donors. At DOCS Health, we offer various stem cell therapy options, including:
