Do you have pain in your hip or knee joints or back pain that prevents you from living life the way you want to? Are basic but important parts of your life such as walking, gardening, fishing, cycling, or exercising, impossible to do without pain? A consultation with a regenerative medicine provider can determine if the latest innovations in stem cell therapies can help restore an active, vital, enjoyable lifestyle for you.
Stem cell therapy is a simple, non-surgical treatment. An injection is made into the affected joint and there is no down-time and no lengthy recovery. You will continue your normal lifestyle while the cells create an optimal environment in your joints to enable your body to repair itself. It only takes about 10 to 12 weeks for you to experience maximum results. At that time, you can increase your activity level to match how your body is feeling. And the regenerative process can even continue beyond that point.
Our body’s regenerative capabilities decline as we age. As a result, we are subject to a wide range of degenerative conditions: these can cause debilitating pain that undermine our enjoyment of the most basic aspects of life. A healthy baby’s umbilical cord contains the cells that could change this for you and promote cell renewal and healing by providing the proteins, stem cells, and growth factors you need.
Umbilical cord cells have components with the potential to affect the environment inside the joint that stimulates your own tissue and aids in the regenerative process. The growth factors, proteins, and stem cells will continue to produce additional growth factors and proteins for a period of time, and stimulate your NATIVE STEM CELLS at the same time to aid in regeneration.
