Questions About Stem Cell Therapy
We understand you have questions about this treatment option, and we want to make sure we answer all of them. Read below for commonly asked questions about Stem Cell Therapy, as well as what you may want to ask your doctor before having this treatment (or any procedure) done.
Based on new research and developments, regenerative medicine is more heavily utilized and more successful than ever before. PRP/Stem Cell Therapy has become a safe and effective way for patients of Dynamic Health & Pain Management to overcome pain without resorting to drugs or surgery.
Other products marketed as “regenerative medicine” are not handled as carefully, may be freeze dried or ground up, and do not contain any living cells. This makes them much less effective (or even totally ineffective).
Beware of providers who use “amniotic” tissues or stem cells. Ongoing research confirms that the prepared amniotic and placental tissue products contain no, or very minimal, living cells.
This varies from patient to patient and can be influenced by many factors. Give us a call or schedule a complimentary consultation so that we can better evaluate your case.
- Clump together at sites of injury to stop the bleeding
- Release natural growth factors at the site of the injury
These growth factors send signals to the body that an injury has occurred, drawing in stem cells and additional growth factors that will help the body heal.
Adipose (Fat) Tissue Stem Cells are used for their ability to turn into different types of tissues like cartilage, tendon, ligament and muscle tissue.
Over time, the growth factors stimulate the body’s natural healing process, and the chronically damaged joint or tendon repairs itself.
The stem cells will then incorporate themselves into the damaged tissue and start regenerating it. This is the only available treatment that can actually regenerate chronically diseased cartilage.
It may be necessary to have repeated PRP or stem cell injection treatments for as long as you continue to have recurring joint pain.
“Thank you for saving my knees from surgery. Prior to my surgery date (3 weeks ago) I had difficulty walking without constant pain in both knees. The pain was excruciating and I had difficulty sleeping at night. The procedure only took a short time and afterwards I noticed immediate relief. Now, after 3 weeks, I can walk without pain, sleep without waking up and I rode my bicycle 50 miles yesterday without pain. This is the procedure I would recommend to anyone before they consider having any type of surgery especially a knee replacement. Thank you again for saving my life.”*
