Progressive Rehabilitation Medicine is an Iowa provider of regenerative medicine. We offer a multitude of therapies, one of which is stem cell therapy.

Mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy is where stem cells are injected into an injured area. Stem cells are living cells that can transform themselves into many different types of tissue, and are therefore able to differentiate into ligaments, tendons, bone, nerve, and cartilage. Hence why these cells are thought to be useful in regenerating the body naturally.

When an injury occurs, it is the stem cells that are released and summoned by the body to rebuild damaged muscle, joints, or cartilage. By injecting these stem cells directly into the damaged area, the idea is that it accelerates the body’s natural healing process.

Until recently, treatment options for osteoarthritis or joint pain were limited. Steroid injections, joint replacement surgery, and physical therapy were the only treatment options. Stem cell injections are now available, and not only can they alleviate pain, but may offer an option for regenerating some tissues and/or joints. The best option for anyone would be to come in for a consultation to see a) if stem cell therapy may be a viable option  b) to assess the level of pain or injury to see what is the best course of action.   

We also provide specialized stem cell rehab to build strength and recondition the weakened joint to address all the factors that contribute to the injury and lack of proper function.
