Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine is an exciting advancement in medicine! Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC’s) occur naturally in every person, and are cells the body uses naturally to heal and repair. Injured tissues in the body give off signals, and MSC’s “hone in” on those areas, and begin the process of repairing and regenerating the damaged and injured tissues. As we age, we have less and less MSC’s in our body. This is why when we are younger, we can do certain activities and recover. However, when we are older, it takes much longer to recover (if at all!).
It is because of this reason that our clinic uses umbilical cord stem cells in our treatment. We not only get a higher number of stem cells with each injection, but we also know the exact dosage of stem cells within the injection (compared with bone marrow stem cells, adipose [fat] stem cells, and amniotic stem cells).
The large majority of cases who are good candidates for stem cell therapy, only need one (1) injection for their condition. Only a small minority of patients need a 2nd injection 6-8 months later. Each patient’s condition is unique, and you will discuss any future possible injections with your provider at your follow up appointments.
Conditions that respond well to umbilical cord stem cell injections:
- Knee Injuries (meniscus, MCL, ACL, PCL, and LCL sprains or partial tears)
- Arthritis/Osteoarthritis – Bone on Bone
- Hip Pain or Labral Tears
- Shoulder Damage (Rotator Cuff , Tendonitis, and Arthritis)
- Chronic Back Pain
- Chronic Neck Pain
- Elbow, Wrist or Hand Pain
- Achilles Tendon
- Ankle Pain, Foot Pain, or Plantar Fasciitis
- Lower Back Pain, Disc Injuries & Disc Degeneration
