The Magic of Bone Marrow Concentrate (BMC) Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells have been at the forefront of the medical industry in recent years, revolutionizing the way we treat injuries and speed healing. Bone marrow concentrate, or BMC, is one of the safest treatments available because it triggers the body’s natural healing from within. Nanoknee embraces the natural healing power of stem cell therapy with bone marrow concentrate treatments.
What is Bone Marrow Concentrate Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cells tend to become less effective with age, and there may not be enough stem cells to adequately treat certain injuries. Stem cells within the bone marrow, also known as stromal stem cells, have the ability to generate fibrous tissue, cartilage, and bone. These powerful stem cells can be used to treat sports injuries or other strained ligaments, including those that are known to require many months to heal with traditional treatment.
What Does BMC Stem Cell Therapy Treat?
Bone marrow concentrate can be used to treat a wide variety of injuries. Because the cells can aid in the generation of cartilage and other body tissues, it is often used to treat joint pain and injuries, including:
- Rotator cuff tendinitis
- Knee ligament tears (MCL, ACL, etc.)
- Hip labrum tears
- Achilles tendinitis
- Plantar fasciitis
- Tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow
Tendon or ligament injuries can happen to anyone. Even stepping off of a curb in the wrong position can put strain on your ankle. Athletes put their joints at risk due to the vigorous motions required in playing the game. Fibrous tissues such as tendons take longer to heal, but BMC can significantly speed the healing process, with minimal downtime.
How are BMC Treatments Performed?
BMC treatments are typically performed by harvesting bone marrow from the hip area. The bone marrow is placed in a centrifuge to separate the stem cells from other matter. The amount of bone marrow concentrate needed will differ based on your specific injury and the size of the area to be treated. Then the concentrate is precisely injected to the affected areas. The entire procedure can be completed in one hour or less, making this advanced regenerative treatment easy to fit into your schedule. Most patients feel minimal pain during the procedure. You will be able to return home the same day, and resume most activities the next day.
How Does it Compare to Other Methods?
Bone marrow stem cell therapy has transformed the way we view tendon injuries. The minimally-invasive procedure often only needs to be performed once to greatly accelerate the healing process. Getting back to your routine in less time can be very important to your quality of life. The unique healing power of stem cells make this a viable treatment any person suffering from tendon damage. By using your own bone marrow, the technique is extremely safe and does not pose the risk of allergic reactions or other adverse side effects.
