Stem cell therapy takes advantage of the human body’s ability to heal itself. Stem cell injections can help regenerate tissue at a specific site, and is often used by professional athletes looking to heal an injury. But today, more and more regular people are turning to stem cell injections to heal what ails them. Stem cell therapy uses the body’s own blood and marrow to promote a natural healing process. Here are three of the more common issues that stem cell therapy can help heal.


Stem cells can be used to treat arthritis either through surgery or through an injection directly to the affected joint. A typical treatment option is to obtain bone marrow and then inject it into the affected area. If you suffer from chronic arthritis, a stem cell injection could be what you need to finally feel some relief.Elderly woman holding her arthritic hands

Joint Injuries

If you have ever injured a joint area like a knee or an elbow, you are likely aware that these areas can take some time to heal because of their location. By injecting stem cells directly into the targeted area, a patient may be able to regenerate cartilage faster than the body would otherwise be able to do.

Achilles Tendonitis

A chronic Achilles injury can be incredibly frustrating. If the problem is bad enough, you might have trouble walking let alone being able to run or jump around. By injecting stem cells directly into the target area, you can help your body restore the degenerating tissue and give yourself some much needed relief.
