The summers in Northern Colorado are a great time for lots of outdoor activities, including hiking, kayaking, and many more. People love to get outside and enjoy the warm weather, but if chronic pain in your knee, hip, or back slows you down, you may not be able to do the things you want. Dr. Kenneth Pettine has treated many people who were suffering from chronic pain, and through the use of stem cell therapy, people can find healing and recovery that lets them get back on the bike, explore that next trail, or strap on those water skis.
Overcoming Pain and Injury
People who love to be active during the summer usually know that there’s some inherent risk with biking, hiking, or watersports. Strained muscles, torn ligaments, and other injuries can result from falling or overexerting oneself. Stem cells that are gathered from a patient’s own bone marrow can provide the resources the body needs to heal a partially torn ligament or correct an issue in the spine. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) offer amazing healing properties, and while you may have to stay off the trail or the water for a short time, the chances can be quite high that you’ll be back out before the summer is over. Overcoming pain and injury doesn’t always require surgery, and MSCs could be the key to getting back to the activities you love.
It may only be the beginning of April, but if you’re planning your summer outings or a vacation that includes lots of physical activity, don’t let nagging pain or injury slow you down. Contact Dr. Pettine today and discover how stem cell therapy can benefit you. He’s treated many patients as an orthopedic surgeon in Northern Colorado, and now his focus is on stem cells and how they can provide an alternative form of healing.
