Columbia is home to one of the most beautiful parts of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Columbia lies right against the western shore of the Susquehanna river, which separates Lancaster and York County.
The borough of Columbia is only 2.7 square miles and is home to 10,400 people. This makes Columbia a pretty populated borough within Lancaster, PA although the population in the area has actually decreased over the past few decades. With less people moving into the town the average age has increased over time. This means that there are thousands of people who are suffering from arthritis pains in Columbia. In fact, according to arthritis.org about 75% of people will experience arthritis pain in their life. This means that 7,500 people in Columbia will go through some sort of painful joint condition, due to arthritis, in their lifetime.
Thankfully, due to stem cell therapy not all of those 7,500 people will have to go through painful joint replacement surgery. Regenerative medicine, such as stem cell therapy, have become more and more popular for people within the last few years.
What is stem cell therapy and how can it keep you out of surgery?
Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Pain in Columbia Pennsylvania
Why are you experiencing knee pain? There are a ton of different reasons. Have you ever injured your knee earlier in life? Have you, or have you ever, been overweight? Are you in your mid 60s? These are all factors that contribute to arthritis in your knee. Your knees have endured stress since you were a baby and you’ve worn down the cartilage in between your knee joint. The bones that make up the knee joint are now rubbing on each other because you have won down the protective cartilage and you’re experiencing knee pain. This is the typical reason why you are experiencing knee pain. But don’t call your surgeon yet! There may be other options.
Stem cell therapy is a regenerative treatment that everyday people, as well as some professional athletes, have taken advantage of. Instead of replacing the joint with an artificial one, you now can repair the cartilage in your knee with amniotic stem cells.
Here’s a few conditions, which cause knee pain, that we treat with stem cell therapy.
- Knee pain
- Worn Cartilage in the Knee
- Bursitis of the Knee
- Knee tendinitis
- Torn ACL
Stem Cell Therapy for Hip Pain in Columbia Pennsylvania
Most of us know someone right now who is suffering from arthritis in the hip. Do you have a grandma who uses a walker? Have you ever seen an elderly man in a wheelchair? Many times hip arthritis is what has put them in that position. Yes, the hip is an extremely large joint and it’s made to endure stress. However, there isn’t a joint in the human body that is indestructible. Thankfully hip surgery isn’t the only option for people who are experiencing hip pain.
The Stem Cell Professionals harvest amniotic stem cells and use them for orthopedic stem cell treatments. Since stem cells have the ability to transform into other cells they can rebuild the cartilage in your hip. Cartilage degeneration is the cause of arthritis pain and when your hip cartilage regrows from the injection of stem cells, you will start to feel a decrease in hip pain.
Check out a few of these painful hip conditions we treat with stem cell therapy.
- Damaged hip
- Hip arthritis
- Inflammation in the hip
- Worn hip cartilage
Stem Cell Therapy for Lower Back Pain in Columbia Pa
If you don’t know someone who has hip pain, then surly you know someone who has lower back pain. I would be willing to bet that in Columbia, PA there are probably 1,500 people who are living with chronic back pain as we speak. The lower back endures a lot of stress throughout your lifetime and surgery is extremely invasive. Not to mention that the recovery time is lengthy.
An alternative to lower back surgery could be stem cell therapy. We obtain amniotic stem cells from a mother during a C-section birth. Once the stem cells are FDA approved we use them for stem cell therapy. We inject the stem cells into the affected part of your lower back. The stem cells begin to rebuild the cartilage in your lower back and you may feel a decrease in lower back pain.
Check out a few of these painful lower back conditions we treat with stem cell therapy.
- Cartilage degeneration
- Lumbar disc herniation
- Lumbar degenerative disc disease
- Lower back pain
Stem Cell Therapy for Neck Back Pain in Columbia Pa
Just like the lower back, the neck is also very susceptible to stress throughout your life. There are only a few vertebrae in your neck that hold up your 11-pound head. This stress causes wear and tear on the joints, cartilage degeneration and eventually arthritis. While many people believe surgery is an option, the surgery itself is very risky and invasive.
Stem cell therapy is a great option for people who have mild arthritis in their neck. If you still have some cartilage in your neck an injection of stem cells may be able to help. We inject stem cell in the cartilage in your neck and over time the cells begin to rebuild cartilage in your neck to relieve neck pain.
Here’s a few painful neck conditions we treat with Stem Cell Therapy.
- Herniated Disc
- Bulging Disc
- Cartilage Degeneration
