A ligament sprain is an injury to a ligament in which the fibers tear as a result of overstretching. Symptoms include swelling, bruising, local pain and weakness/instability of the joint. Most patients will improve with conservative, physician-directed therapy such as rest, ice and physical therapy. A small number of patients will continue to experience localized pain and weakness after a sprain. Depending on the injury, some patients may even need surgery.
Treatment with stem cells at the site of the injury can accelerate healing and improve healing in patients with chronic pain related to a ligament injury. Regenerative medicine treatments have the potential to activate your body’s own adult stem cells and blood platelets to stimulate healing and speed repair. Read more about how it works.
