Researchers at Mayo Clinic Discuss the Benefit of Using Stem Cells for Decreasing Pain
THE JOINT REPLACEMENT ALTERNATIVE!
PRP and Stem Cell Injections is a proven option for managing chronic joint pain. Harnessing stem cells to cure disease is the hottest topic in joint injury, knee pain and arthritis treatment today. By using the adult stem cells found in our own bodies, we can amplify and speed up the natural healing process as well as grow new bone and cartilage to rebuild joints without the need for artificial replacements.
Conditions Which May Be Treated With PRP and Stem Cell Injections
Medical researchers are reporting remarkable results using PRP and Stem Cell Injections in the treatment of common injuries, including:
Labral tears of the shoulder
The regeneration of cartilage in osteoarthritis of the hip, back, shoulder and knee
Non-surgical repair of rotator cuff tears
Resolution of chronic pain
Ligament and meniscal tears
The Basic of PRP and Stem Cell Injections
What should patients expect after stem cell therapy?
The noticeable regeneration of the joint tissue and cartilage typically starts to occur within 3 weeks. Most of our patients report a substantial reduction in pain and improved function within 4-6 weeks after receiving PRP and Stem Cell Injections. Many report total pain elimination within 10-12 weeks. Within 3-5 days after the procedure, most patients can return to work and resume normal daily activities. Patients cannot start stressful activity or begin strenuous exercise for six weeks. Returning to stressful activity before six weeks may result in incomplete healing of the treated tissue.
Are PRP and Stem Cell Injections Safe?
Yes. Autologous Stem Cell Injections has been used for over 10 years in surgical and orthopedic procedures. There are many research articles published on the safety of these therapies. Because a patient’s own blood and cells are used, there is little risk of a transmissible infection, no side effects and a very low risk of allergic reaction.
How many treatments are required?
We treat most patients aggressively upon the first visit with a mix of PRP, Extracellular Fiber Matrix and stem cells which all work together to create your regenerative injection. Most patients need only 1 PRP or Stem Cell Injections but you could potentially have a follow up pure PRP injection which is thought of as a “booster shot”, the primary function of which is to stimulate continual stem cell growth.
