Chronic pain is the most common cause of long-term disability. It lasts longer than "normal healing" (several months), and can cause severe problems.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), musculoskeletal injuries are the most common cause of severe long-term pain and physical disability, and affect hundreds of millions of people around the world. The impact such injuries have on everyday life is substantial. The traditional management of orthopaedic and sports related injuries includes everything from conservative “RICE” treatment and physical therapy to corticosteroid injections and surgical intervention. Recently, advances in biomedicine and biotechnology have enthused the use of cell therapy, tissue engineering, and autologous blood concentrates to enhance healing and stimulate growth in bone and soft tissue injuries.

Stem Cell Injections
We're excited about stem cells because they could help in many different areas of health and medical research. Stem cells, which have the potential to develop into many different types of cells in the body, serve as a repair system for the body and there are two main types: embryonic and adult. Stem cells may one day be used to make cells and tissues for therapies of many diseases and conditions.
