Orthopaedics & Sports Injuries
The Stem Cell Clinic is able to offer regenerative treatments for many conditions and injuries, including:
All Orthopaedics & Sports Injury Treatments
Our orthopaedic and sports injury treatments can be broken down into the following broad areas, although there is some overlap between them.
Joint & Spine Treatments
Regenerative medicine is a very safe and non-invasive solution to many common spinal and joint conditions affecting our patients, including tendonitis, degenerative arthritis, tennis elbow and many more. We harness the body's natural ability to self-heal and ensure that this function is instigated and/or accelerated to achieve long-lasting results.
We harvest and reinject the patient's own adult stem cells, during our treatments. These are found in various areas of the body, but because of their abundance in fat cells and bone marrow, we extract them from here and use the concentrated stem cells harvested from there to help repair cartilage, tendon, and bone in the patient's body. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections target growth factors and healing proteins to the problem area, so stimulating healing and recovery. This PRP treatment can be used either on its own or in combination with other treatments including stem cell therapies.
Soft tissue injuries
Soft tissue injuries exist when trauma or overuse occurs to muscles, tendons or ligaments i.e. those tissues supporting the body's joints to move. Where someone injures or otherwise damages these tissues, the body attempts to try and heal the injury through its own repair mechanisms. However, this isn't always so straight-forward particularly in areas of the body with limited blood flow, such as inside and around joints. In areas with limited blood flow, the growth factors in blood and/or any stem cells in the area will find it more difficult to travel to and therefore repair the affected area. This lack of the body's own healing function may lead to ongoing pain, weakness and/or pain in or around a joint. Here at the Stem Cell Clinic, we harness the power of regenerative medicine, to augment our patient's natural healing process. The aim is always to enable the damaged tissue to be repaired through the appropriate selection of therapies available.
Pioneering Sports Therapies
At the Stem Cell Clinic, we specialise in providing patients with pioneering sports treatments including stem cell and PRP therapies, but also new and innovative therapies including Intravenous Light Therapy. Sportspeople, whether professional or enthusiastic amateurs, are susceptible to many trauma-related and overuse injuries. Almost any part of the body can be injured, including the muscles, bones, joints and connective tissues i.e. tendons and ligaments, but ankles and knees are particularly prone to sports-related injury.
We have a range of treatments available, which are all aimed at treating the underlying condition, minimising any related pain and discomfort, and enabling a return to fitness as quickly as is possible.
