Ephrata is a beautiful town located in the northern part of Lancaster County. There are currently about 14,000 people who live in Ephrata, which spans over about 7,000 square miles.
However, arthritis and painful orthopedic conditions are still affecting all parts of Ephrata, just like it’s affecting all parts of Lancaster County. Even though there’s a decent amount of people (14,000) in Ephrata, there’s still about 1,130 people who are struggling with painful arthritis symptoms everyday.
The Stem Cell Professionals are helping people all over Ephrata stay out of the surgical centers and getting their lives back with stem cell therapy. If you aren’t aware of what stem cell therapy is, it’s an orthopedic alternative to surgery where we rebuild your cartilage with stem cells instead of replacing the joint with a prosthetic joint.
Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Pain in Ephrata Pennsylvania
Why do you have knee pain? You’ve been walking your entire life, standing your entire life, running, jumping and kicking your entire life. This constant stress on your knees has slowly won away the cartilage in your joints. Just like running shows slowly wear away their soles; the cartilage in your joints slowly wears away. However, if you don’t have later stages of arthritis we may be able to keep you out of surgery.
We harvest stem cells from a mother during a scheduled C-section birth. The stem cells are donated to us after they are sent to an FDA approved lab for inspection. These amniotic stem cells are the best for orthopedic treatments. We inject these stem cells into your affected knee and the cells may be able to rebuild your cartilage. This allows you to walk and even run without significant pain!
Here’s some Knee Pain conditions we commonly treat with stem cell therapy
- Damaged cartilage
- ACL injury
- Knee Bursitis
- Patellar tendinitis
Stem Cell Therapy for Hip Pain in Ephrata Pennsylvania
The hip is one of the largest joints in the human body. When you run, jump and walk you’re putting stress on this joint. However this joint wears away just like any other joint. In fact, I bet there are hundreds of people in Ephrata Pennsylvania right now who are experiencing hip pain. Since surgery is such an invasive process for the hip and since it’s such a big commitment stem cell therapy should definitely be considered before Surgery. How does Stem Cell Therapy for the Hip work?
Just like with stem cell therapy for the knee we obtain amniotic stem cells. These stem cells are the most effective for orthopedic treatments. We inject the vital stem cells into the hip joint and over time the stem cells will begin to rebuild the cartilage that you have worn away in your hip. When people are experiencing hip pain from arthritis it’s due to the fact that they have worn away the hip cartilage. Stem cell therapy essentially rebuilds your cartilage.
Here’s some conditions we treat for hip pain with stem cell therapy
- Hip Arthritis
- Worn Hip Cartilage
- Hip Inflammation
- Hip Arthritis
- Damaged Hip Joint
Stem Cell Therapy for Shoulder Pain in Ephrata Pennsylvania
In many situations shoulder pain is a result of an injury that occurred when you were younger. Many times people don’t take advantage of proper treatments to heal the injured shoulder and down the road pain and arthritis may occur. However, this isn’t every situation. The shoulder joint is similar to other joints in the perspective that the cartilage in the joint can wear down and degenerate. Until this point in time the only option for shoulder pain was invasive surgery. Now regenerative treatments are becoming more attractive since the regeneration process isn’t invasive at all and no recovery time is needed.
Let’s say you’re experiencing pain in your shoulder from arthritis. We would find out if you are or are not a good candidate for stem cell therapy from x-rays. If the x-rays determine that you have cartilage to build off of then you may be eligible for stem cell therapy. We would harvest vital stem cells from a mother during a scheduled C-section. We inject the stem cells right into the shoulder joint so that the stem cells come in contact with the worn cartilage. After a few weeks the stem cells begin to rebuild the cartilage in your shoulder and you may experience joint pain relief.
Here’s a few conditions, which cause shoulder pain, that we treat with stem cell therapy
- Rotator Cuff Tear
- Joint Separation
- Shoulder separation
- Arthritis of the Shoulder joint
- Labral tears
- Rotator Cuff Tendonitis
Stem Cell Therapy for Wrist Pain in Ephrata Pennsylvania
Wrist pain is not as common as some of the larger joints, such as the shoulder or knees. However, the wrist is still a joint that endures stress throughout your life. The stress leads to a handful of problems that can lead to arthritis and nagging wrist pain. More than likely, the reason why you don’t hear about wrist pain as often is because you aren’t putting as much stress on your wrist as your knees or hips. Although, you are always using your wrist to get through everyday activities such as typing, writing, lifting etc. Since the wrist is a smaller, more complicated joint, surgery is much riskier. Many times surgery is unsuccessful, which can hinder normal functionality after the surgery.
Thankfully regenerative treatments offer a much smaller risk compared to surgery. In fact, at this point there has been virtually no risk to stem cell therapy and some other regenerative treatments. If you are experiencing wrist pain, we inject amniotic stem cells into the affected joint. Once the stem cells come in contact with the affected joint(s) they begin to rebuild the tendons, tissue and cartilage that has been worn away from everyday wear and tear, surgery and overuse.
Here’s a few conditions we treat with stem cell therapy, which cause wrist pain.
- Trigger Finger
- Carpal Tunnel
- Wrist pain
- TFCC Tear
