Stem cell treatment is an exciting advance in medicine that offers long term pain for Lee’s Summit, MO patients. Discover what this treatment option can treat, how it works, and how long it takes to recover.
Q. What can stem cell treatment at Rejuvenate Mind-Body Wellness Center treat?
A. Stem cell treatment as Rejuvenate Mind-Body Wellness Center can be used to treat a variety of painful conditions. This treatment option can eliminate pain in the knee stemming from injuries such as chronic back pain, neck pain, hip and knee pain, among others. It can also relieve arthritis pain, foot pain, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, tendon tears, and more.
Q. How does it work?
A. We use donated umbilical cord cells that are from live, healthy births to perform stem cell treatment. Administered by a medical doctor or nurse practitioner, this procedure uses healthy cells that have been screened for diseases, just like blood that is donated is. The doctor will inject the healthy cells into the area that is causing you pain. These cells are undifferentiated and they can adapt to become cells in the area that are damaged, then go to work replicating themselves and healing the damaged area.
Q. Why don’t you use cells from my body?
A. When people think about stem cell treatment, they usually assume cells will be taken from your own body. But, this procedure can produce less than optimal results for the patient not to mention costly. Using donated umbilical cord cells saves the patient money and cuts down on the recovery time.
Q. Will my body reject these cells?
A. The great thing about stem cells is that they are undifferentiated and immunonaive, meaning your body will not see these cells as foreign.
Q. How long does it take for me to see results?
A. Stem cell treatment does not offer immediate results, but it does provide long term results. Most patients may see improvement within four to six weeks following the injection. But, it can take six to eight months for the entire regeneration process to complete, and you to see full results.
Q. How many injections will I need?
A. One benefit to stem cell treatment for pain is that repeat injections are not necessary. The vast majority of patients only require one injection to relieve their pain. A small number of patients, however, may need a second injection after the six to eight month period passes. Your doctor will discuss this with you at your first follow up appointment.
