30% seems like a fairly large number. However, 80% of people will experience some sort of joint pain at some point in their life. This can consist of injury, arthritis and other diseases causing joint pain.
Until recently the solution for joint pain was surgery and pills. Thankfully more clinics are offering regenerative medicine, such as stem cell therapy.
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cell therapy is an option for people suffering from debilitating joint pain. If you are like many people suffering from arthritis then the condition was most likely brought on from overusing the joint.
Overuse leads to cartilage damage and degeneration. An injection of stem cells into the joint may regrow the worn cartilage and your painful symptoms of arthritis may be a thing of the past.
The stem cells we use are adult stem cells so there are no ethical pitfalls with this treatment. The stem cells come from the amniotic fluid, which is otherwise discarded, during a scheduled C-section. The mother chooses to donate the cells and they are then processed at an FDA approved lab for processing.
When you are a candidate for stem cell therapy the injection takes a few seconds and you’ll be in and out of the office within an hour. In fact, you’ll walk out of the office and you can resume normal activity almost immediately! Compare that with painful knee replacement surgery or prescription pills.
