Wrist and Hand Pain
Stem Cells Are An Alternative To Wrist and Hand Surgery
Many patients have been turning to Stem Cell Therapy as a better alternative to surgery.
Wrist and hand pain can be the result of an injury, such as a fracture or a sprain, or of a medical condition, such as arthritis, osteoarthritis, or tendonitis. Surgery is often recommended as a treatment for several wrist and hand conditions. However, surgery requires hospitalization and the recovery may be relatively slow. There are always risks and complications associated with surgery, such as post-surgical pain, reactions to anesthesia, infections, or nerve damage, for example. Furthermore, in many cases, wrist and hand functionality may not be fully recovered after surgery.
Stem Cell Therapy can help provide new cells to degenerated regions of tendons and joints in the wrist and hand, helping to reduce pain and improve mobility, and doing so with an easier and faster recovery and with significantly less complications.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy for Hand and Wrist Pain Work?
The aim of using Stem Cell Therapy is to support the natural regeneration of our tissues to suppress inflammation, relieve pain, and restore mobility and full elbow functionality.
At the Boston Stem Cell Center, we utilize the patient’s stem cells to help repair the damaged wrist and hand tissues naturally. Stem cells can be retrieved from the bone marrow and fat. They are aspirated with minimal discomfort, and then injected into the injured area of wrist or hand along with concentrated platelet rich plasma. Platelet rich plasma is a portion of the patient’s own blood that has a high concentration of growth factors that can activate stem cells and prompt them to produce additional growth factors and anti-inflammatory molecules. Platelet rich plasma is obtained by a simple method of centrifuging of a blood sample
With the support of platelet rich plasma, stem cells will provide the precursor cells for tissue repair and will also change the environment in the injured tissue from inflammatory to healing and regenerating. This will promote healing of the damaged area of the wrist or hand by stimulating cellular proliferation and local repair processes, and by reducing inflammation, resulting in pain relief and improved function.
Typically, a single stem cell injection should be sufficient to yield good results for most problems. Frequently we add platelet rich plasma injections to reinforce the activity of stem cells. We do all our stem cell procedures under ultrasound or X-Ray fluoroscopic guidance to increase accuracy and decrease the likelihood of complications.

Is Stem Cell Treatment Right For You?
Although Stem Cell Treatment is considered by some people to be experimental, various research studies show that regenerative stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma injections can provide excellent relief from joint and musculoskeletal pain and ongoing inflammation.
