Surgery isn’t the only answer to chronic pain. At Advanced PainCare and BioHealth Institute in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, we perform highly specific image guided procedures which use bone marrow concentrate to help your pain and improve your function. Get in touch or visit us in Central PA to learn more about how this cutting-edge treatment can promote natural healing and provide long-term relief.

What Are Stem Cells?

Most of the cells in a human body are specialized for certain roles in the brain, bones, skin, muscles, and elsewhere. These are constantly dying and being replaced by new cells of the same type. Over time, however, this ability breaks down, as age, wear, and injury eventually slow natural regeneration. That’s where your stem cells come in. Their daughter cells can become a variety of different cell types depending on the conditions around them, meaning one stem cell can produce bone cells, muscle cells, blood cells, or any other cell type. That makes them the perfect regenerators for your chronic pain.

Looking for an alternative to surgery?

When your spine or joints have lost their ability to self-heal, our doctors can draw bone marrow concentrate from your iliac crest and inject them near the affected area under ultrasound or x-ray guidance. This Bone Marrow Concentrate which contains the patient’s stem cells will immediately begin producing new cells, triggering your body’s natural ability to heal.

What are the benefits?

Using bone marrow concentrate to promote natural healing is one of the most advanced solutions available to treat orthopedic injuries without the risks and side effects of invasive surgery. It’s appropriate for a wide range of conditions, such as:

  • Rotator cuff tendonitis and tear
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Wrist strain or tendonitis
  • Chronic neck pain
  • Chronic back pain
  • Arthritis of the knee, hip, shoulder or ankle
  • Tear of the meniscus
  • Hip pain
  • Labral tears of the shoulder or hip
  • Chronic ankle strain / sprain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendonitis

If you are struggling with one of these ailments, bone marrow concentrate, containing your own stem cells, can offer a minimally invasive alternative to surgery. Instead of high risks, long hospital stays, and months of recovery, you’ll be able to go home and return to everyday life while your injured tissue regenerates.
