Do You Suffer From Joint Pain, Knee or Back Pain?
Stem cell injection therapy may be exactly what you’ve been searching for.
What Is Stem Cell Injection Therapy?
Stem Cell Therapy is a non-surgical solution for joint, knee, and back pain. The simple in-office procedure helps initiate the body’s self-recovery process allowing patients to quickly get back to their normal routine.
Stem cell injections have shown promising results for men and women with chronic disorders who aren’t ready to undergo risky surgical procedures. Treatments safely and effectively provide long-term results.
How Does It Work?
Stem Cell Therapy uses high-concentrations of living tissue to repair damaged cells within the body. When injected directly into predetermined problem areas, stem cells can facilitate a faster recovery process sans surgery. Treatments are quick, easy, and can typically be done in less than an hour.
What Areas of the Body Does It Treat?
Undifferentiated stem cells have the ability to grow into virtually any type of cell in the body making them effective for a variety of conditions. When injected at precise locations, the cells start to take instructions from surrounding cells and eventually duplicate them. Stem cells can be beneficial for;
- Joint Pain
- Knee Pain
- Back Pain
When treating joint disorders or knee pain, stem cells are placed in areas where they will develop into essential cartilage and meniscus cells. For back pain, stem cells are injected on either side of the spine in either the lower back or neck regions where they’ll grow into new spinal disks, tendons, or muscle tissue.
Who Is A Good Candidate for Stem Cell Therapy?
You may be a good candidate for Stem Cell Therapy if you’d like to successfully avoid more invasive surgical options for back or knee pain caused by past trauma or injury. Stem Cell Therapy is also effective for treating age or genetic-related joint pain. Dr. Lester will determine your candidacy for the procedure at the time of your consultation.
How Many Treatments Are Needed to See Results?
In many cases, the anti-inflammatory effects of stem cell injections are noticed within days. Patients will often walk better immediately after injection into the knees. It takes 9-12 weeks for new tissue to start to grow. Repeated injections at 3-6 month intervals are needed when there is more extensive damage, or if a person is ill or elderly.
Is It Painful?
Aside from minor pain at the injection site, Stem Cell Therapy is typically well tolerated. A topical anesthetic cream is applied beforehand, and injections have anti-inflammatory properties to minimize any post-treatment discomfort.
Is There A Recovery Process?
There is no typically downtime after the injection or infusion. Depending on the significance of your injury, Dr. Lester may create a custom recovery plan.
Where Do Stem Cells Come From?
At Trilogy Medical, we use FDA registered and inspected stem cells that have been prepared by the company RichGen. These stem cells are derived from a young healthy woman’s placenta after a C-section birth. Because cells are purified and isolated for injection therapy, they contain no DNA remnants of the baby or mother.
Stem cells that are sourced from amniotic fluid are much more effective than cells that come from your bone marrow or fat cells because they are undifferentiated. Undifferentiated cells are more likely to respond and grow into the healthy tissue your body instructs them to.
