How to Determine If Mesenchymal Cell Therapy Is Right for You

By: Our Medical Team


Mesenchymal cell therapy, or MCT, is one of the most intriguing pain relief treatment options today because it stimulates the body’s natural response to injury. Dr. Michael Wolff and the team at Southwest Spine and Sports are proud to offer mesenchymal cell therapy for our clients in Scottsdale, AZ.

You may be curious about how this procedure works and what makes it helpful for joint pain, back pain, or soft tissue repair. Let’s look at what makes this procedure unique and see if it’s the right choice for you.

What is MCT?

MCT is a practice where cells are collected from your body, usually from the bone marrow from the hip bone or adipose tissue from the body’s abdominal fat. These cells are concentrated, purified, and injected in the area that experiences pain, usually where the body is experiencing stress. This helps the body accelerate the healing process to injured tissues, helping to produce healthier cells that repair the body. The procedure doesn’t pose many risks since these are natural cells that come from your own body.

What does MCT treat?

MCT is ideal for many physical concerns, including joint pains triggered by osteoarthritis, and muscle or tendon tears. The practice also works for lower back pains triggered by disc pain or degenerative disc disease.

Who can benefit from MCT?

Dr. Wolff treats many patients who experience pain from the overuse of joints, muscles, and tendons with mesenchymal cell therapy. The MCT procedure is helpful for people who experience recurring pains in certain parts of the body, usually through regular workouts or sports activities, like the knees, shoulders, hips, and lower back.

People who have attempted to resolve their pain through various physical rehabilitation efforts could also benefit from MCT. While rehab exercises can be necessary, sometimes, it becomes harder for the tissues to recover due to overuse.

MCT is also great for those who have tried using medications or wants to avoid using them. The problem with medications is that they can be addictive. Plus, they only mask the pain without resolving the underlying cause. MCT helps target the cause of your pain and restore the body’s functions without medication.

How long will it take to experience pain relief?

It generally takes about 4 – 8 weeks to experience pain relief in most situations. The timing will vary by patient, but you may start noticing some effects sooner than that. The MCT process needs time to have the optimal effect.
