Therapies - General

Conventional therapies and surgery often treat the aftermath of the injury as opposed to the cause. Conventional drug based therapies very often only provide short term relief to inflammation, and/or the symptoms of either an injury or degenerative condition. In addition, surgery can result in scar tissue which can impede the range of motion and the ability of an animal to return to its previous level of agility, movement or athletic endeavour.

Stem cells are extremely versatile and can be used in the treatment of soft tissue and joint injuries and to aid in the regeneration and rehabilitation process. Stem cells can be used to treat such common conditions and/or injuries such as arthritis and dermatitis in dogs and bowed tendons or suspensory ligament injuries in horses. 

The initial focus of AVSC will be upon the following conditions/treatments:-

Dogs:-

  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Tendon, Ligament and Cartilage Injuries

Horses:-

  • Ligament Injuries - eg Suspensory Ligament Injuries
  • Tendon Injuries - Bowed Tendon etc
  • Cartilage Injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative Joint Disease

 

The management of arthritic pain together with the treatment/repair repair of injuries to tendons and ligaments are some of the most frequent problem for horse owners and trainers. These types of injuries which are extremely frequent in active horses, can often lead to a degenerative disease or a reduction in performance

AVSC offers equine stem cell treatments treatments for the repair of tendon and ligament injuries in horses as well as for arthritis and joint inflammatory conditions.

Most soft tissue and joint injuries have the ability to respond favourably to adult stem cell treatment. Stem cell therapy can normally allow treated horses to return to the previous level of activity and lifestyle.
