Does suffering from tendonitis make me a good candidate for Stem Cell Therapy? What are the qualifications for Tendinosis and Stem Cell Therapy? Some qualifications include Rotator Cuff Tendinosis, Patellar Tendinosis (Jumper’s knee), Quadricep tendinosis, tendonitis in the hands and wrist or chronic tendinitis in the bicep. You may also qualify with injuries to the following areas Flexor, Extensor, and Bicipital tendons, Peroneal/Posterior Tibialis tendon, and of course any Achilles Tendon Injuries.
We see tendonitis more common in athletes and people whose jobs or activities involve repetitive movements; which results in aggravating the tendons. Most of these people want it to be healed quicker without having to go through any surgeries. Athletes would like to get back out on the field or get back in the gym as soon as possible. For example, the Achilles’ tendon is the largest tendon in the human body. It connects the calf muscle to the heel bone. It is important to get fixed in a more efficient manner because it is used while walking, running, and jumping. All very important activities to an athlete.
Adult stem cell therapy is a fantastic option for treating tendons. Stem cell therapy is an innovative way to use your own stem cells to treat chronic tendinitis and any tendon injury mention earlier. By only using your cells for the procedure, we can significantly increase your chance for complete healing, as your body is utilizing its own building blocks to self-repair.
