WRIST, HAND AND FINGER PAIN
Pain in the wrist, hand, and fingers can be caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Repetitive motion injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, or tenosynovitis
- Arthritis, which can cause inflammation and pain in the joints of the hand and wrist
- Nerve compression or injury, such as ulnar or median nerve compression or peripheral neuropathy
- Fractures or sprains, which can cause pain, swelling, and limited mobility
- Ganglion cysts, which are noncancerous lumps filled with fluid that can develop on the wrist or hand
- Trigger finger or trigger thumb, which is a condition where a finger or thumb gets stuck in a bent position and then snaps straight
- Raynaud’s disease, which is a condition where the fingers and toes become numb and cold due to reduced blood flow
- Infections, such as cellulitis or osteomyelitis.
It is important to seek medical attention if you are experiencing pain in the wrist, hand, or fingers as early diagnosis and treatment can lead to better outcomes.
Regenerative medicine treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections and stem cell therapy have shown promising results in the treatment of wrist, hand, and finger pain. PRP injections involve the use of the patient’s own blood, which is centrifuged to concentrate platelets and growth factors. The concentrated solution is then injected into the affected area, where it can promote healing and tissue regeneration.
Stem cell therapy involves the injection of mesenchymal stem cells, which can differentiate into various types of cells, including cartilage, bone, and tendon cells. When injected into the affected area, these cells can help repair damaged tissue and promote regeneration.
Additionally, regenerative medicine treatments may also be used in conjunction with other therapies, such as physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medications, to further reduce pain and improve function. However, the effectiveness of these treatments may vary depending on the severity and underlying cause of the wrist, hand, and finger pain, and it is important to consult with a medical professional to determine the best course of treatment.

How does stem cell treatment help
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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?
- Book Free consultation with us.
- 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.
- Do a tumor marker test. This is a simple blood test that you will need to do prior to the procedure.
- Bring someone to drive you back home.
