Elizabethtown Pa is located in the Western part of Lancaster county. There’s about 11,000 people who call Elizabethtown their home, not counting the students who attend Elizabethtown College. About 25% of the people who live in Elizabethtown are over the age of 50, which means that about 3,000 people in Elizabethtown are suffering from some sort of pain from arthritis. It’s very unfortunate, but arthritis plagues millions of people everyday in the United States. Elizabethtown is not immune.
Until recently, everyone believed that once you had arthritis pain you were either in for a lifetime of pain or imminent surgery. Thankfully this isn’t true anymore. We now have the advancements in medicine to use stem cells to rebuild joints and cartilage instead of just replacing the joints with surgery.
Here are some of the joints we can treat wit stem cell therapy.
Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Pain in Elizabethtown Pennsylvania
The knee joint is one of the largest joints in the body. After all the knee joint is where the largest bones come together (femur and tibia). This large joint is made to endure enormous amounts of stress. However, this doesn’t mean that the knee is indestructible. You can injury your knee, tear your ACL and wear down the vital cartilage in your joint. This are all contributors to arthritis.
Once you have knee pain from arthritis, instead of surgery, stem cells may be able to decrease your knee pain. We obtain amniotic stem cells that have the ability to rebuild cartilage in your knees. Once we successfully rebuild the cartilage in your knee you’ll experience a dramatic decrease in knee pain.
Here’s a few knee conditions we commonly treat with stem cell therapy.
- Torn ACL
- Cartilage Degeneration
- Knee Bursitis
Stem Cell Therapy for Shoulder Pain in Elizabethtown Pennsylvania
Just like the knee, the shoulder is another large joint that was made to endure a lifetime of stress. However, in many cases people people outlive the cartilage in their shoulder and begin to experience arthritis. When you have cartilage degeneration in your shoulder it can make life so difficult. Cleaning, sleeping, lifting objects and getting dressed all require a healthy shoulder.
Before you call your orthopedic surgeon, please consider stem cell therapy. It’s an alternative to shoulder surgery that requires no downtime, no recovery time and you may be able to feel great within a few weeks.
We inject stem cells into your affected shoulder and the stem cells begin to rebuild the cartilage in your shoulder. The cartilage degeneration is what’s causing discomfort and arthritis. When we rebuild the cartilage in your shoulder you may begin to feel better. Within a few weeks you will be able to get dressed, pick up heavier objects and sleep without pain.

Stem Cell Therapy for Back Pain in Elizabethtown Pennsylvania
According to American Spinal Decompression Association, 80% of people will experience back pain at some point in their life and 20-30% of us at any given time are experiencing back pain. This is a HUGE problem. This means that 8,800 people who are currently living in Elizabethtown are going to experience back pain at some point. This also means that there are 3,300 people in Elizabethtown RIGHT NOW that are having back issues. Many of these back issues are due to arthritis.
If you’re ignoring your back pain it’s probably because you’re really just ignoring that fact that you have to go through back surgery. Thankfully there are other options that are alternatives to surgery. Surgery for arthritis in the back replaces the joint. This process is extremely invasive and there is a high chance of the surgery being unsuccessful.
Stem cells don’t replace the joint, they actually rebuild the joint. In as little as one injection of stem cells into the problematic area of the back you can rebuild the worn cartilage in your back and you may experience back pain RELIEF!
