Stem cell therapy for fibromyalgia represents an advance in regenerative medicine that is giving patients new hope. Stem cells help to repair damaged cells, and we harness those essential cellular capabilities to help you live a healthier lifestyle.
By injecting the areas most impacted by your fibromyalgia symptoms – those that cause persistent pain, inflammation, and irritation – your body can stimulate speedy healing and boost the regeneration of healthy cells to replace the destroyed ones. Because stem cells can differentiate into almost any cell type in the body, the possibilities are nearly unlimited.
Stem cell therapy for fibromyalgia is a recent development – and fibromyalgia is a fairly new disease. The condition was initially defined in 1990 and was last revised in 2011. In the past (and even now) some doctors even questioned if fibromyalgia was a real ailment. This was primarily owing to a misunderstanding of the illness. Fortunately, several medical organizations now accept fibromyalgia as a legitimate condition.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder that causes extensive pain across the body as well as sensitivity to any form of pressure. A physical trauma, surgery, infection, or psychological experience frequently triggers the syndrome. The medical community is not sure why. Some experts believe the brain fails to handle pain signals appropriately, resulting in broad pain across the body
Patients seeking stem cell therapy for fibromyalgia experience widespread pain in numerous parts of the body – symptoms vary from patient to patient. The most prevalent symptoms include:
For many years, the focus of stem cell research has been on autoimmune diseases. Many of these studies have shown that stem cells have the potential to cure different ailments because they possess immunoregulatory qualities, which means they can suppress the immune system.
Reducing the immune system’s response may also reduce overall inflammation. If stem cells can reduce neuroinflammation in the brain, it becomes easier for it to interpret messages correctly and for the neurological system to communicate effectively, allowing the patient to tolerate normal pressures and reduce their pain level.
Stem cells have amazing restorative abilities. When injected, they release a variety of key growth factors that stimulate the body’s replacement of damaged cells. When a patient undergoes stem cell therapy, they are able to repair and replace some of the body’s damaged neurons.
Stemwell uses cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells ethically sourced from full-term human umbilical cords (We do not utilize cells from embryos). We then administer more than 300 million cells that are all thoroughly tested for viability before treatment. These cells are NOT a blood product; therefore, it is extremely safe and does not require HLA or phenotypic matching.

The fifth step is focused on providing specialized treatments for fibromyalgia, utilizing therapies such as shockwave therapy, ultrasound, magnetotherapy, and laser therapy.
In specific instances, we may also incorporate photobiomodulation to address fibromyalgia symptoms and explore its potential benefits

Stem cell therapy for fibromyalgia is just one of many treatments that may be recommended by doctors. One reason for this is that the medical community does not completely comprehend fibromyalgia. Another course is cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). According to research, this sort of therapy has a minor but favorable effect on patients. Patients who received CBT had fewer doctor visits but no meaningful improvement on their quality of life. However, when this therapy was paired with additional lifestyle adjustments, symptoms improved.
None of these treatments addresses the root cause of fibromyalgia. Patients who have persistent fibromyalgia symptoms and have tried alternative therapy have experienced little to no relief. As a result, stem cell therapy may be a promising treatment option for patients with the condition.
Some patients have fibromyalgia symptoms for only a short period of time. Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as Tylenol, may be effective for these people until their symptoms decrease. Antidepressants may improve sleep and regulate neurotransmitters that are out of equilibrium in the nervous system. Antidepressants can aid patients with pain, sadness, exhaustion, and sleep problems in general. But treating fibromyalgia with medication takes care only of the current “in-the-moment” symptoms and does little to nothing for the condition.
Stem cell treatment for fibromyalgia gives patients new hope because it represents an advance in regenerative medicine.

Stem cell therapy offers no guarantees and is not promoted as a cure. This is similar to many other medical treatments. Reviewing the patient’s medical history is necessary to determine stem cell therapy eligibility. Any personal information provided is for internal and medical use with our medical providers only. The Stemwell Health headquarters is located in McLean, Virginia. Stemwell Health Virginia is not a stem cell treatment facility or surgical center. Treatments are not conducted anywhere in the US, since these advanced therapies are not yet FDA-approved. All cell therapies are conducted in Colombia where it is regulated by the ministry of health, INVIMA (Columbia’s FDA equivalent) and other local authorities. All treatments are performed within the country’s legal limits and regulatory framework where the specific medical provider practices.
