Advanced Regenerative Medicine for Sports Injuries


Advanced Regenerative Medicine for Sports Injuries

Introduction - Sports Injuries

While playing sports improves overall health and well-being of an individual, it is also associated with an increased risk of causing orthopedic injuries that are painful and take a long time to heal.

Today, sports medicine doctors use stem cells for regenerative medical treatment to treat a wide variety of sports injuries, including damage to tendons, ligaments, muscles, and cartilage.

Some of the most common orthopedic sport injuries include bone fractures, tear in the muscle or tendons, joint dislocations or injury to cartilage surrounding the joints.

Over the last few years, the field of advanced regenerative medicine has revolutionized the treatment of sports-related bone and joint injuries in the form of amniotic membrane allograft injections.

Are amniotic membranes safe for human use?

Amniotic membrane allografts were safe and effective in lowering pain and treating various sports-related injuries such as plantar fasciitis, foot/ankle tendonitis and knee injury, as shown by multiple clinical trials conducted on human volunteers.

In one such study, amniotic allografts used in patients with achilles tendonitis completely restored normal architecture of the tendon, and optimally aligned tendon fibers by stimulating the synthesis of matrix proteins such as type 1 collagen, hyaluronic acid, fibronectin and laminin.

Patients undergoing this treatment successfully gained complete mechanical strength and functionality of the tendon. While early clinical studies are promising, additional studies are being conducted to understand the implications of amniotic grafts in treating injuries related various sport activities.

With amniotic membrane allografts, one can avoid expensive and invasive surgical procedures for treating sport-related joint damage and associated pain with zero side effects.

However, caution should be exercised when selecting patients for amniotic membrane allografts and the treatment should be performed only by trained medical professionals in regulated clinics.

At StemX, we have an experienced team of board-certified stem cell physicians who perform these procedures using FDA-regulated products in a well-controlled sterile environment using cutting-edge technologies.
