Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a condition that occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes compressed or squeezed as it travels through the wrist.

The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway made up of bones and ligaments located at the base of the hand. When the median nerve becomes compressed in this area, it can cause pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and wrist.

CTS is a common condition that affects people who perform repetitive motions with their hands and wrists, such as typing, sewing, or using power tools. Other risk factors for CTS include obesity, pregnancy, and certain medical conditions such as arthritis and diabetes.

Regenerative medicine can be used as an effective treatment option for carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). The goal of regenerative medicine is to repair or regenerate damaged tissues using the body’s own healing mechanism, often allowing the patient to avoid having to undergo an intrusive and complicated surgical procedure.

Choosing the right treatment for you

The decision to use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy or stem cell treatment for a particular condition depends on several factors, including the location and severity of the injury, the underlying cause of the injury, and the patient’s overall health and medical history.

PRP therapy is typically used to treat soft tissue injuries, such as tendinitis and muscle strains. PRP therapy can be effective for mild to moderate injuries, and it is often used in conjunction with other treatments, such as physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medications.

Stem cell treatment, on the other hand, is typically used to treat more severe or chronic injuries, particularly those that involve damage to bone, cartilage, or other tissues.

In some cases, both PRP therapy and stem cell treatment may be used together to maximize the benefits of regenerative medicine. Ultimately, the decision to use PRP therapy or stem cell treatment depends on the specific condition being treated, the severity of the injury, and the patient’s overall health and medical history.

Our medical team has the right expertise in regenerative medicine and can help you to determine which treatment option is best suited for your condition.

Type of regenerative treatments used for CTS treatment

  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy: PRP therapy involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s blood and processing it to extract the platelet-rich plasma. The PRP is then injected into the wrist to promote healing of the damaged tissues. PRP contains growth factors and other substances that stimulate the body’s natural healing processes.
  • Stem cell therapy: Stem cell therapy involves injecting stem cells into the wrist to promote tissue regeneration. Stem cells have the ability to differentiate into different types of cells, so they can potentially replace damaged cells in the wrist. This can reduce inflammation and promote healing.
  • Amniotic membrane injection: Amniotic membrane injection involves injecting amniotic tissue into the wrist. Amniotic tissue contains growth factors and other substances that promote healing and tissue regeneration.

How does stem cell treatment help

  1. Promoting tissue regeneration: Stem cells have the ability to develop into different types of cells in the body, including muscle, bone, and cartilage cells. By injecting stem cells into the damaged area, they can help promote tissue regeneration and repair damaged tissues.
  2. Reducing inflammation: Chronic inflammation in the area contributes to pain and may require surgical intervention. Stem cells have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.
  3. Stimulating natural healing: Stem cells can stimulate the body’s natural healing process by releasing growth factors and other proteins that help repair damaged tissues.
  4. Minimally invasive procedure: Stem cell treatments are typically performed on an outpatient basis and involve a minimally invasive injection procedure. This means less downtime and a quicker recovery period compared to traditional back surgery.
  5. Customizable treatment: Stem cell treatments can be customized to each patient’s individual needs and can target specific areas, making them a more precise and targeted treatment option.

It is important to note that not all cases of CTS can be treated with stem cell treatments and that each case is unique. It is important to consult with us to determine if stem cell treatment is a viable option for your specific case.

How does it work?

Stem cells are special cells that have the ability to develop into different types of cells in the body, such as muscle, bone, and cartilage cells. By harvesting these cells from the patient’s own bone marrow, they can be injected into the damaged area to promote healing and tissue regeneration.

During the painless procedure, a small amount of bone marrow is typically taken from the patient’s hip bone using a needle. The bone marrow is then processed to isolate the stem cells, which are then injected into the affected area using imaging guidance to ensure accurate placement.

While it may not provide immediate pain relief, it provides long-term benefits and improves overall function and quality of life. If you are considering this treatment option, it is important to book your FREE consultation with us to determine if it is right for you.

What to expect?

Stem cell treatment using bone marrow is a minimally invasive procedure that is typically performed on an outpatient basis. The procedure itself can take up to an hour and the patients can go home after the procedure.

After the procedure, patients may experience some soreness or discomfort at the site of the bone marrow extraction, but this typically subsides within a few days. Pain relief may not be immediate, as it can take several weeks for the stem cells to start promoting healing and tissue regeneration.

It is important to follow any post-procedure instructions provided by your healthcare provider, including any physical therapy or rehabilitation exercises, to help optimize the healing process.

What do I need to have prior to receiving stem cells treatment? 

  1. Book Free consultation with us.
  2. Bring your MRI results. If you don’t have an MRI test done recently, don’t worry. Miami Stem Cell has partnered with imaging clinics to provide MRIs to our patients for as little as $200 per test. Ask us about our partnerships.
  3. Do a tumor marker test. This is a simple blood test that you will need to do prior to the procedure.
  4. Bring someone to drive you back home.
