Chronic knee pain can impact your quality of life
Stem cell treatment relieves knee pain for Lee’s Summit and Kansas City, MO residents. If you’ve ever injured your knee, or if you deal with chronic knee pain stemming from an older injury, you know the toll it can take on your life. Walking long distances, playing sports you used to love, and even sitting for extended periods of time can all aggravate your knee and leave you in pain.
But, before turning to medication or surgery to try to relieve your pain, consider stem cell treatment. This treatment provides long term results without the headache of managing multiple medications or the hassle of having surgery.
Stem cell treatment injects healthy cells into your knee to provide relief
Many people have heard of stem cell treatment, but aren’t sure how it works, or are under incorrect assumptions as to how it works. At Rejuvenate Mind-Body Wellness Center, we have a doctor and a nurse practitioner who administer the injections. We also use umbilical cord blood stem cells that are donated from live, healthy births. These donations are carefully screened to ensure they are healthy before we use them, similar to blood donations being screened.
For stem cell treatment to work, the physician injects the new, healthy cells into the area that is causing your pain, in this case, your knee. These cells then zero in on the unhealthy cells and go to that area where they begin to repair the damage, which relieves your pain.
Patients will notice improvement within a few months
Though stem cell treatment doesn’t offer immediate results, it’s not uncommon for patients to notice improvement within four to six weeks of their injection. Since the cells need time to multiply and do their job, it can take about six to eight months before patients fully see results.
Another great thing about stem cell treatment is that most patients only need one injection. While some may need an additional injection to relive their pain fully, the vast majority of patients see results with just one treatment. Your doctor will be able to discuss how many injections you’ll require after an examination.
