New Advanced, Drug-Free Treatment for Fibromyalgia

fibromyalgia, stem cells

If you have fibromyalgia, you understand how frustrating it can be to live with constant debilitating pain. And because medications can have side effects that cause their own discomfort, they may seem like impractical options. Luckily, Henry N. Small, MD, and his team have developed an innovative treatment for fibromyalgia involving stem cell injections. The treatment is safe, effective, and may be the solution you need to address the debilitating pain of fibromyalgia.   

Fibromyalgia and you

Fibromyalgia is a nerve disorder that involves widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, loss of sleep, and problems with memory. You’ll often experience heightened sensations of pain and discomfort because of the manner in which your brain registers signals of pain. Women have an increased risk of developing fibromyalgia, and while it can stem from physical trauma, many times the illness is arbitrary, developing overtime with no root cause.

What stem cells are

Stem cells are your body’s raw material cells. They are the cells that all of your other cells, such as your heart, muscle, blood, bone, and brain cells, originate from. Dr. Small only uses donated stem cells sourced from umbilical cord blood, so you can be sure that they’re ethically sourced. The value of using stem cells for treatment lies in the fact that they can have incredible regenerative qualities. They can regrow new tissues to replace diseased and damaged tissues.

How stem cell injections work

First, stem cells are harvested in a lab. Then they’re altered to mimic specific cells, such as nerve cells. The cells are then injected into you. The healthy stem cells then help to repair cells that are damaged by fibromyalgia. Because stem cells are adaptable, they can be used to treat different kinds of damaged cells in your body. This treatment may be particularly appealing because its noninvasive and no drugs are needed.  

Henry N. Small and his team understand the frustration of living with fibromyalgia, and that’s why they’ve made their stem cell treatments for fibromyalgia adaptable to their patients’ individual needs. The noninvasive treatments are effective for helping your body heal from the inside out. You don’t have to suffer through the pain of fibromyalgia.
