PURE EXPANDED STEM CELL THERAPY FOR SPORTS INJURIES
PESC FOR SPORTS INJURIES
From All Blacks and world champion title holders to those enjoying social sports, since 2015 we have treated hundreds of patients helping them get back to training faster and helping them avoid surgery
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are stored in our body fat. They have the biological software to replicate into whatever cell is in distress so bone, muscle, cartilage and they are waiting to be called into action to help. Doctors called them 'nature's perfect repair kit' which is ready to be deployed and start the repair.
Research has shown only when these MSCs are isolated and grown to amounts numbering tens of millions that they can do their healing work. This is what our PESC therapy offers. Athletic injuries can be one of the best responders to our treatment as the cells of active patients can multiply faster. Recovery times are also much shorter than surgical procedures.
Common injuries we treat:
- Knee injuries
- Rotator-cuff injuries
- Hamstring sprains
- Damage to the meniscus
- Hip pain
- Soft tissue tears/trauma resulting from impact or repetitive motion
What Stem Cell Sports Medicine Can Do For You
PESC therapy is a non-invasive, virtually pain-free procedure resulting in faster recovery time and less time spent at physio. The treatment has helped our patients avoid or delay surgery.
Our results have shown that cartilage regrowth starts to occur 6-12 months after treatment. In patients aged 40-60, 50% reported less pain with a 75% decrease in pain within 9 months post-treatment. Results also show a statistically significant improvement in mobility and functionality, of the affected joints, as early as one month following the procedure.
PESC was developed in conjunction with ReGen Cellular and represents the gold-standard today in stem cell treatments. Our proprietary PESC protocol offers the highest concentration of stem cells available in any treatment today. It is not available anywhere else in NZ.
Does Stem Cell Therapy Work for Sports Injuries?
We are seeing an increasing number of clients in their 40's who after years of playing sport are suffering with ongoing pain and injury. Surgical intervention would mean an end to many of the activities they enjoy. Many of our professional sports clients are given the choice, surgery which can halt or end a career. For both these groups, a non-surgical alternative with rapid healing potential such as PESC, is popular.
Many of our athletic patients opt to keep cells cryo-frozen with us in case of further injuries or for retirement if past injuries start to cause issues.
SPORTS INJURIES THAT PESC CAN REPAIR
Muscle injuries represent about 45% of sports-related injuries. Our injection of Pure Expanded Stem Cells (PESC) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) are nature's perfect repair kit when injected precisely into the damaged muscle tissue. PESC contains a 95% solution of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) which tells the body to flood blood vessels to the injured area which decreases inflammation.
Healthy cartilage is essential in maintaining joint health and mobility. Small tears can lead to significant other cartilage damage resulting in permanent disability. Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) injected in the knee can promote repair the tissue and potentially regrow the damaged parts of the meniscus.
Tendons are made of collagen fibers which can tear as a result of repetitive strain or trauma, so this type of injury is common among runners, tennis players and golfers. Poor blood supply to tendons means long healing times and the tendon may remain in less than optimal condition due to scar tissue in the collagen. The ultra-high dose of MSCs mixed with Platelet Rich Plasma PRP in our PESC treatment produces the precursors to the collagen used in tendon repair. It floods the area with blood flow meaning a more satisfactory healing process.
