Regenerative medicine is the science of using the body’s own natural healing powers to relieve pain or heal injured tissue. Stem cells are found throughout the human body and have the ability to specialize into different types of cells depending on their location and “job.” Injecting an adult’s own stem cells into an area that is injured or damaged can promote the rapid regrowth of tissue and provide pain relief.
Stem cell injections are nothing short of an extremely versatile and effective solution to many health and cosmetic needs. Not everyone is a good candidate for stem cell therapy, but it has been reported to have a positive effect on a plethora of conditions, such as osteoarthritis, erectile dysfunction, and autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, autoimmune hepatitis, and Crohn’s disease. It’s also been effective in treating neurological disorders such as MS, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s and has aesthetic applications as an anti-aging rejuvenation treatment and hair regrowth.
By far, stem cell injections are an amazing solution to chronic pain. Many experienced pain specialists utilize this treatment method in combination with physical therapy, medications, lifestyle changes, and more to deliver optimal results for patients.
How Many Stem Cell Injections Do I Need?
One common question people often ask about this treatment is the number of treatments they will need for effective results. This all depends on the condition being treated as well as the severity of the condition. Some conditions may respond well with just one stem cell injection, while others may require periodic treatments for maximum benefits. For example, a person seeking stem cell therapy to recover from a sports injury may need one or two injections only, while a person with osteoarthritic damage may need several.
What To Expect During Treatment
During the procedure, a qualified physician will harvest stem cells from fat in the abdomen with local anesthesia. Then, the isolated stem cells will be injected into the area where healing is needed. There is very little discomfort and no downtime necessary. In fact, a majority of people are able to carry on with their activities immediately following the treatment. Most people find that the treatment continues to work in their bodies for several weeks, while improvements are often noticed within a few days. It can take 6-8 weeks before you experience the full effect of the treatment.
Stem cell injection therapy has many applications that continue to be researched, with more and more successful outcomes happening every day. It is considered extremely safe and the number of people who benefit is rapidly growing.
