Regenerative Cellular Therapy
Stem cell therapy is a type of regenerative cellular therapy used to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, boost your immune system response, and speed up healing. It has been used to alleviate pain for patients suffering from a wide array of medical conditions. It’s even been used as a safe alternative to joint replacement surgery.
What Is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cells are the body’s building blocks. Stem cells have the unique ability to become any type of body tissue, from blood cells to muscle tissue, and much more. When delivered to the site of an injury, stem cells have the power to heal – by stimulating the repair, renewal, and regeneration of healthy tissue in the area.
At NIVA Health, we use human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells for its superb potential and effectiveness. The stem cells are donated after live births – no babies were harmed in the process of obtaining these stem cells – and are stored in FDA-regulated tissue banks. The entire process –harvesting, storage, and use via injection – is safe and follows government-mandated protocols.
Stem cell therapy isn’t new. It’s been used since the 1950s, although it is experiencing a resurgence of popularity due to growing research, trials, and use. Physicians of all stripes rely on the healing power of stem cell therapy.
Who May Benefit From Stem Cell Therapy
If you’re tired of taking medication, or if cortisone shots are no longer working for you, we’ve got just the long-term solution you’ve been looking for: stem cell therapy.
Stem cell therapy has been used for patients with a wide variety of symptoms and conditions, including:
- ACL injuries
- Back pain
- Chronic pain
- Degenerative joint disorder
- Erectile dysfunction
- Hip pain
- Joint pain
- Knee pain
- Meniscus tears
- Neck pain
- Pinched nerves
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Shoulder pain
- Soft-tissue injuries
- Sprains and strains
- Tendinitis and Tendinosis
Depending on your condition or the severity of your symptoms, stem cell therapy may help you avoid surgery and all the risks, costs, and side effects that go along with it. In a recent study, the condition of patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis improved after just one intravenous treatment with human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells.
Stem cell therapy may even be used in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 – clinical trials exploring this potential use are currently underway in the U.S.
What to Expect
Our providers may select a number of areas for treatment, depending on your condition and the severity of your symptoms.
Stem cell treatments are performed in our office and are usually completed in under an hour. It is a virtually painless experience and, depending on the location of your treatment, you may experience minimal to no downtime after your stem cell therapy. Because the natural cellular regeneration triggered by stem cell therapy takes time, it may be 3-4 weeks after your procedure before you notice its effects.
