Stem cells offer an exciting way to treat pain
Stem cells offer an exciting way for doctors at Rejuvenate Mind-Body Wellness Center in Lee’s Summit, MO to relieve pain in patients. If you suffer from chronic pain, such as back or neck pain, knee pain, elbow pain, and more, stem cells can be used to offer you long term pain relief without having to go through the trauma and lengthy recovery surgery requires.
Stem cell treatments involve taking healthy cells and injecting them into the problem area
Since stem cell therapy is a relatively new procedure, many people may have heard of it, but aren’t really sure how it works. At Rejuvenate Mind-Body Wellness Center we use stem cells from donated umbilical cords. These stem cells are screened carefully, just like donated blood would be. By using these stem cells, we save you the discomfort and pain that would come with using stem cells from your body and save you the money that would come from that procedure.
The physician will then inject the new, healthy stem cells into the area that is causing your problems. These healthy cells are smart and will go to where the issue it. They then start to multiply and take over the damaged or injured cells in the area. This helps relieve your pain and offers long lasting results.
It can take time to see results, but usually only one treatment is required
One great thing about using stem cells to treat pain is the fact that it typically only requires patients to have one treatment. If your doctor feels you may benefit more from having two injections, they will discuss that with you at your first follow up appointment.
Some patients report seeing some results from their stem cell treatment within four to six weeks after the procedure. However, it can take six to eight months for the cells to complete their regeneration processes. It is at this time that you will see your full results.
You’ll need to avoid certain medications before and after treatment
Before having treatment using stem cells, your doctor will take with you on how you should prepare, and what you’ll need to do afterward. Most importantly, you will need to avoid taking anti inflammatory drugs, as that can make it difficult for the cells to know where to go. If you aren’t sure what these types of drugs include, be sure to speak with your doctor.
