Stem cell treatment is a form of regenerative medicine with the ability to stimulate new cell growth and improve a wide range of pain and medical conditions. Stem cells can be injected into parts of the body to replace damaged cells and to stimulate the growth of new, healthy cells and tissue. If you have muscular injuries or suffer from any degenerative diseases, stem cell treatment can help improve your condition and get you back to feeling healthier, more energetic, and more youthful.
What Are the Benefits of Stem Cell Treatment?
The benefits of stem cell treatment are far-reaching for those who have been coping with debilitating and degenerative diseases such as chronic pain, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease, or who have suffered injuries and physical trauma. Here are some of the many benefits associated with stem cell treatment.
Pain conditions and autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis are driven in part by chronic inflammation. Stem cell treatment helps reduce inflammation by increasing the presence of healthy cells in the body—especially when stem cells are injected into areas that renew cartilage and bone that have been lost and damaged due to chronic inflammation.
Poor immunity can make the body more vulnerable to illness, infection, and disease. Stem cells can renew cells in the bloodstream and immune system to help your body fight infections more effectively and to help you stay healthy.
Many treatments for health conditions such as degenerative diseases result in a relatively long recovery time—especially if you opt for surgery. Stem cell treatment offers minimal aftercare and a fast recovery time, allowing you to resume your regular daily activities following your appointment.
Surgery is associated with a long list of risks, side effects, and complications, and usually requires you to take medications to manage postoperative symptoms such as pain. In comparison, stem cell treatment is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedure that takes place in an outpatient setting and comes with fewer risks, side effects, and potential complications.
The stem cells used in stem cell treatment are harvested from your own body; therefore, there is no risk of rejection or disease transmission that might otherwise occur from receiving cells extracted from another person.
Invasive treatments such as surgery usually require the use of general anesthesia to reduce pain and allow you to sleep during your procedure. However, general anesthesia is associated with side effects including nausea, confusion, and sore throat, and requires you to arrange for transportation to and from your procedure. Stem cell treatment does not require the use of general anesthesia, which means you can drive yourself to and from your appointment and avoid related side effects.
Which Health Conditions Can Be Treated with Stem Cell Treatment?
Nearly any disease and health condition can be effectively treated with stem cell therapy. Stem cell treatment helps your body generate healthy cells that replace the damaged cells and tissues contributing to your condition.
Health conditions that can be successfully treated and improved using stem cell therapy include:

Are Any Risks Associated with Stem Cell Treatment?
Stem cell treatment that uses cells harvested from the patient’s own body comes with very few risks and side effects, while stem cell treatment that uses cells from another person may result in immune rejection, just as with organ transplants that use organs from another person. Some studies suggest that stem cell treatment may also cause the formation of tumors, though more research is needed to confirm this theory.
The most common side effect of stem cell treatment is a reaction or infection at the injection site, though this happens rarely. Our team at EnteBella Medical will discuss any possible risks and side effects of stem cell therapy with you prior to your treatment session.
