Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Stem Cells?
They are Master cells, meaning they can become any type of tissue in the body. Every thing in our body stems from stem cells. Our bones, muscle, organs, nerves, hair and even our eyes. They naturally occur in the body and they provide natural healing mechanisms to damaged tissue. The problem is as we age they start to decline.
Is It Safe?
After over 350,000 treatments performed throughout the nation there has been no report of immune rejection. These cells have not developed a immune system yet, and they have been thoroughly screened so our bodies immune system has nothing to respond to or reject. We use a superior quality product from an FDA-certified and inspected laboratory to ensure safety and efficacy.
How Does It Help With Pain?
The key is to get the stem cells into the affected area. Pain is due to inflammation, inflammation is due to damaged tissue. The stem cells will start to repair the tissue, and that’s when the pain will start to decrease. The stem cells we use also have collagen, and growth factors naturally occurring with the stem cells that create a framework for the cartilage and damaged tissue to be built back up.
What Conditions Can It Be Used For?
Back pain, knee pain (osteoarthritis, tendinitis) hip pain, neuropathy, plantar fasciitis, degenerative disc disease, macular degeneration, chronic pain, tennis elbow, etc. There are others. Please ask one of our providers if your condition can potentially be improved through stem cell therapy.
What’s Involved In The Treatment?
Most procedures include an injection of stem cells at the sight of tissue damage in the joint. Platelet Rich Plasma and O3 boosters can also be included in our follow up care. We also include acupuncture treatments, which have been shown to improve the regeneration process by 10-15%. We provide a full blood panel review to help determine potential root cause. And lastly, nutritional and lifestyle counseling to provide a great environment for tissue regeneration.
Is There A Guarantee?
Like with all Medical procedures there’s no guarantee. But the amount of procedures being performed and the great results people are getting makes it such a effective therapy. However this treatment may not be for everyone. Call to schedule a consultation to see if you qualify.
Is There Any Research Behind It?
Stem cells are one of the most researched procedures out there. It is more heavily researched than many medications out there including statins. America has done a lot of research, but so has China, Europe and Brazil. If you would like more info please call or email and we will gladly send you more information.
