What is BMA and Where Does it Come From?
Bone Marrow Aspirate (BMA) is a component of your bone marrow that can be used to promote healing in soft tissue as well as in bones. BMAC is a complex solution of growth factors as well as anti-inflammatory proteins and various cells that work together in this healing process.
What is BMA Therapy?
Bone Marrow Aspirate (BMA) Therapy is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment that aims to relieve pain and disability by promoting long-lasting healing of musculoskeletal conditions. Our Marrow Cellution BMA is a form of regenerative therapy that uses your own bone marrow in order to promote healing for various conditions. It is a great regenerative therapy option because it prompts a rapid and efficient restoration process of tissue or bone. It’s a natural solution for certain conditions and ailments as it stimulates the body’s healing process.
The Marrow Cellution BMA procedure is completed in one outpatient visit and includes the following steps:
Step 1: Extraction
In a minimally invasive procedure using a specialized needle, your physician aspirates a small quantity of bone marrow, typically from your hip bone.
Step 2: Cell Isolation
The autologous bone marrow is processed to isolate and concentrate the regenerative cell solution for re-injection into the joint space or in soft tissues. A closed system is used for sterility and efficiencies.
Step 3: Injection
The cell solution is injected into the affected joint to help accelerate your natural healing response and stimulate the proliferation of local cells into new tissues leading to a decrease in local inflammation, which often is the driving force behind the progression of chronic degenerative conditions.
Step 4: Relief
Most patients experience significant symptom and pain relief after a few weeks, and the healing process continues with full benefits usually observed between 3 to 6 months. It's up to your doctor to determine the right protocol and recovery for you.
