Do you suffer from pain in your knee, shoulder, hip, elbow, ankle, or wrist? Have you been told that your only option to relieve the pain is to have surgery? If you’re looking for another option that is less invasive, less risky, and less painful, there is another option. Many people have found pain relief and healing with amniotic allograft aka stem cell therapy. Before you commit to surgery, read this blog from Dynamic Health Center in Denver to learn how stem cell therapy may be able to help you.
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cell therapy, also called regenerative medicine, is a breakthrough therapy that uses stem cells originating from the amniotic sac and amniotic fluid. These cells, when injected into the body, can transform into specialized cells that regenerate and repair damaged tissue. For people suffering from chronic pain, stem cell therapy can be a game-changer. An injection is made into the area needing relief, and the cells work to help the body heal itself from within — no invasive surgery needed.
Safety of Stem Cell Therapy
For most people, the first question is often “Is it safe”? There are two primary concerns about safety — the origin of the stem cells and how they react once injected into your body.
At Dynamic Health Center, we ensure the quality and safety of stem cells by adhering to strict standards and testing protocols. All of our donors are healthy women between the ages of 18 and 35 years of age and their blood is screened for potential health issues. Once a healthy donor has been identified, the donated tissue is tested twice before processing.
Regarding safety post-injection, there’s no need to worry about having an adverse reaction or being concerned that your body will reject them. This is because stem cells used at Dynamic Health Center are immune-privileged, meaning your body won’t recognize them as a foreign substance. On the contrary, your body will accept them as their own. In fact, of the millions of people who have used stem cell therapy, there have been no reported cases of having any type of adverse reaction whatsoever.
Risks of Surgery Versus Stem Cell Therapy
You probably already know that there is a long list of risks of having surgery. Because it is invasive, there is always a high risk of infection. Infection can delay the healing process, cause scarring, or in extreme cases — be life-threatening. Surgeries that require anesthesia come with even greater risks. And, if you have other conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes, your risk could increase even more.
Another concern that many people have about surgery is the use of pain medication. You may have heard horror stories about people getting addicted and becoming just another statistic in the opioid epidemic. What’s even scarier is the fact that many of these cases can be attributed to pain medication that was originally prescribed by a doctor.
With stem cell therapy, many of the risks you might have with surgery, can be avoided. Stem cell therapy is non-invasive, regulated for safety, and is performed in one visit. Patients enjoy a quick recovery time — often returning to normal activities within the same day. And with stem cell therapy, you won’t have to deal with managing post-surgical pain. In fact, you should experience less pain than when you walked into our clinic.
But, Does It Work?
Current information shows that 97 percent of patients experience relief from their symptoms after getting stem cell treatment. You’d be hard-pressed to find any other treatment with this high of a success rate with so few risks. Not only that, but stem cell therapy is a much more cost-effective option over surgeries that can cost you tens of thousands of dollars.
Under What Conditions is Stem Cell Therapy Your Best Option?
One of the most positive and encouraging aspects of stem cell therapy is that it can be used to treat a wide range of injuries and conditions. Some of these include:
- Knee, hip, or shoulder joint pain
- Degenerative joint diseases
- Rotator cuff tears
- Carpal tunnel
- Meniscus tears
- Sprained or torn ACL, MCL, LCL, or PCL
- Plantar fasciitis
- Patellar tendonitis
