What is plantar fasciitis?
This is a condition wherein tears appear in your fascia, which refers to the fibrous band of tissue that extends from your heel to your toes, says WebMD. This typically comes with inflammation and pain.
Wondering how to deal with the condition? Here’s why you might want to consider the merits of regenerative medicine like stem cell therapy.
What is stem cell therapy?
This is a type of regenerative medicine that makes use of the body’s own resources to accelerate healing and rate of recovery. It also reduces pain levels and slows down degeneration and aging.
How can stem cell therapy help?
Stem cell therapy is a kind of plantar fasciitis treatment. The injection of stem cells into the affected stimulates the growth of new cells. The cells also heal and repair any damage to the area, including tears in the tissue. As a result, you can move around with little to none of the mobility issues you had before the procedure.
Why fat-derived stem cells?
In some cases of plantar fasciitis treatment, experts prefer mesenchymal stem cells to be collected from fat instead of the bone marrow. That’s because fat-derived stem cells do not suffer from qualitative and quantitative weakening, which is common result when stem cells are collected from old or chronically ill patients.
How will the collection go?
Collection of stem cells from the patient’s own body effectively cuts down on the risks of any compatibility issues or problems, making it a safe option. Trained staff will collect fat in a sterile treatment office. A local anesthetic will be administered. You can expect the entire procedure to take about only 20 minutes or so. Make sure you bring someone along to drive you back home after the procedure. To know more, get in touch with a doctor.
