By now, many of you have probably heard of stem cell therapy. This cutting edge technology uses adult autologous (patient’s own) stem cells to promote healing by repairing or replacing damaged cells at the site of illness, pain, or injury.

The rise to fame of stem cell procedures came from celebrities and top pro-athletes, who were the first to seek this type of innovative treatment around the globe and could get early access to this new revolutionizing sports medicine alternative.

Additionally, stem cell therapy is often an ideal option for the kinds of problems and injuries that athletes are likely to face. For example, injuries to the knee can be very difficult to treat because of the nature of the cartilage and tissue involved—the body rarely replaces knee cartilage that is damaged or lost.

With stem cell therapy, doctors successfully achieve natural repair of the damaged tissue. In fact, there is strong optimism among physicians that stem cell therapy may one day make knee replacement surgery a thing of the past! Stem cell therapy is particularly promising for neck injuries because it is a difficult delicate area to treat.

Until recently, players were forced to travel overseas to seek out regenerative therapies because of the lack of availability in the US. Fortunately, that has changed, and these treatments are now available in the US.

Studies show that prior to treatment, patients report being limited to an average of 55% of their optimal function in the injured areas and after receiving treatment, they report averages up to 75% in levels of improvement and mobility, all within a three-to-six-month period. Because these treatments are comprised of advanced technology and an effective medical protocol, the improvement results are quick, long-lasting, completely pain medication-free, and require little or no downtime so can get you “back in the game”.

In conclusion, stem cell therapies have become widely available in the US and are no longer just for pro-athletes or the super wealthy. In fact, at no extra cost, Miami Stem Cell offers free financing options to our patients making these innovative, non-invasive treatments more accessible to all.

Through cell regeneration, Miami Stem Cell can provide your body an opportunity to speed up the healing process due to athletic injuries. We know that this process is the key to giving the body a natural alternative to surgery or medication. Through our stem cell therapy sessions, you can begin to see a real difference in the quality of your pain after a sports injury.

Regenerative medicine is an emerging field that focuses on using the body’s own natural healing processes to regenerate or repair damaged tissues and organs. In the context of athletic injuries, regenerative medicine can be used to promote healing and recovery following a sports-related injury.

One approach to regenerative medicine for athletic injuries involves the use of mesenchymal stem cells. These are adult stem cells that have the ability to differentiate into a variety of different cell types, including bone, cartilage, and muscle cells.

Mesenchymal stem cells can be isolated from the patient’s own body (autologous stem cells). Once harvested, the stem cells can be processed and injected directly into the site of the injury, where they can help to stimulate tissue repair and regeneration.

Another approach to regenerative medicine for athletic injuries involves the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP is a concentrated solution of platelets, growth factors, and other bioactive molecules that are derived from the patient’s own blood. The PRP solution is prepared by spinning the patient’s blood in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets and growth factors. The resulting PRP solution can then be injected directly into the site of the injury, where it can help to stimulate tissue repair and regeneration.

Other regenerative medicine approaches for athletic injuries may include the use of growth factors, cytokines, and other bioactive molecules that are designed to stimulate tissue repair and regeneration.

Overall, regenerative medicine offers a promising new approach to treating athletic injuries by harnessing the body’s own natural healing processes.

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.

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 spine discs, 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 tendon, ligament, cartilage pain and lesions 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.
