Stem cell therapy relieves arthritis pain which can impact your daily life
Stem cell therapy relieves arthritis pain in Kansas City and Lee’s Summit, MO residents who have been diagnosed with arthritis. Per the Arthritis Foundation, over 54 million Americans have been diagnosed with some form of arthritis. Of those 54 million people, 31 million have osteoarthritis. Arthritis affects the joints, such as in the hands and feet, making some movements painful or difficult to perform. These limitations impact people’s lives, causing them to miss out on activities.
Stem cell therapy is a treatment option that provides pain relief without the use of medications. With one injection, you can find arthritis relief.
Stem cell therapy injects umbilical stem cells into the injured area
Stem cell therapy involves the use of umbilical cord cells to repair the damaged cells in the area. These cells are donated from live, healthy births and are carefully screened to ensure they are healthy and safe for use. We use umbilical cord cells at Rejuvenate Mind-Body Wellness Center because they are undifferentiated and immunonaive, which means they can adapt easily to the area and have a low risk for rejection.
Once the cells are screen and ready for use, a doctor or nurse practitioner at Rejuvenate Mind-Body Wellness Center will inject them into the area, or areas, you are experiencing arthritis symptoms. These cells then hone in on the painful and damaged area and start replicating and replacing the old cells.
You’ll see results in a few weeks
Stem cell therapy needs time for the cells to replicate and repair damage before you see results. Some patients see improvement within four to six weeks. But, the new cells need time to do their job, so full results are typically seen within six to eight months after your treatment.
Recovery is quick with little to no downtime
Along with providing pain relief, stem cell therapy offers a quick recovery time, with minimal downtime. Most patients are able to return to work or other commitments immediately after their injection. However, you should avoid strenuous exercise following stem cell therapy for about a month after your injection. Be sure to discuss any restrictions you should follow after having stem cell therapy.
