Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy for Hand, Wrist, and CMC Arthritis

Does Your Hand or Wrist Hurt? Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy Can Help

Many of us suffer from aching hands and/or wrists. Sometimes the pain comes from an injury like one you might sustain in a fall, sports accident, or car crash. Maybe the accident resulted in a triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) tear, damage to the cartilage on the little finger side of the wrist.

Or perhaps you’ve simply gotten older and now the degenerative joint disease known as CMC arthritis has reared its ugly head. This is one of the many forms of arthritis (rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, etc.) and occurs when the cartilage wears away from the bones that form the join at the base of the thumb (AKA the carpometacarpal joint.) Like a TFCC tear and the many others types of arthritis, CMC arthritis can result in considerable pain and loss of mobility.

Nor, sadly, are these the only difficulties that can afflict the hand and wrist. The following list isn’t exhaustive but should give you some idea of the many sorts of problem that can arise.

Conditions That Produce Pain in the Hand and Wrist

  • TFCC tear
  • Basal joint arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis of the hand
  • Post-traumatic hand arthritis
  • Ligament sprain on the wrist
  • Chronic thumb sprain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis (a condition affecting the tendons on the thumb side of the wrist

Help for Basal Joint Arthritis and Other Sources of Hand and Wrist Pain

As you know if you suffer from it yourself or have been around someone who did, pain in the hand and wrist is no joke. The discomfort, stiffness, inflammation, and loss of mobility can so hinder a person that even the simplest, most mundane tasks become difficult. Small wonder, then, that people so afflicted so often turn to their doctors in search of relief.

In times past, such relief, when it was achieved at all, often came at the cost of chancy invasive surgery followed by a lengthy, painful recovery period. Today, however, medical science has discovered an alternative in the form of stem cell recruitment therapy.

Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy

Stem cell recruitment therapy is the product of cutting-edge advances in regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine procedures are those that promote the growth of healthy new tissue to take the place of tissue that’s been damaged by an injury or an illness, possibly a degenerative joint disease like one or another type of arthritis.

Stem cell recruitment therapy uses the body’s own naturally occurring stem cells and stem cells derived from the amniotic fluid to create this regenerative effect. The injection comes without risk of rejection, and there is essentially no recovery time. Patients can anticipate resuming their regular activities the same day.

Stem cell recruitment therapy has proved useful in addressing a broad range of conditions associated with chronic pain. These include muscle, tendon, ligament, and joint issues, lower back pain, knee pain, soft tissue damage, and the loss of cartilage due to advancing age and arthritis.

Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy, Hand and Wrist Pain, and CMC Arthritis

Stem cell recruitment therapy can help relieve pain and repair tissue damage throughout the body, and the hands and wrists are no exception. By promoting the growth of new healthy cartilage, stem cell recruitment therapy addresses the root cause of CMC arthritis, Of course, a great many conditions can validly be conceptualized as resulting from damaged or deteriorated tissue, and so the techniques of regenerative medicine attack the core causes of those illnesses as well.
