Stem cell therapy has been used in the medical community to repair and restore damaged tissue for several decades. Often it was used after surgery to heal the surrounding tissue, but in the past two years, stem cell therapy has been researched and found to work extremely effectively with orthopedic issues, including major joints such as knees, ankles, and shoulders. This natural therapy is non-surgical and non-invasive except for the initial injection of stem cells, and there is also no downtime or recovery time needed. The stem cells do all the work!
What are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are uncoded cells, which means they are able to become whatever type of cell needed to mend and heal the area. When they are injected into the damaged joint, they can repair and restore tendons, ligaments, muscle, and cartilage because they have no predestined design. Once injected, and this is the only medical procedure performed, the stem cells discern what cells need replacing, and they begin to multiply that specific type of cell. This accelerated multiplication will last up to eight months supplying the area with brand new cells to restore the missing tissue, and relief of chronic pain is the best benefit!
What is the Process to Expect?
The entire application takes places in one short office visit. First, our experienced healthcare team answers all your questions and discusses where you are experiencing pain to determine if you would make a good candidate Therapy. An X-ray will typically determine if you would make a good candidate; there must be a specified amount of the original tissue remaining, so the stem cells have the model to copy. When this has been verified, you may have the injection then or you may schedule another appointment at your convenience. Our doctors use ultrasound to gauge the injection site, and the injection of the stem cells only takes 10 minutes, so you may continue with your normal activities.
The stem cells will begin immediately to multiply, there is no other action required from you. In as soon as one to two weeks, many recipients begin to feel the reduction of their symptoms. Thousands of patients have used stem cell therapy in the U.S., and many have canceled surgeries because the results were so amazing that they now experience much more freedom of movement of that joint. Some have reported putting away their canes because of their chronic pain was significantly reduced.
