29 Nov Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy as a Surgery Alternative
Amniotic stem cells are rich in growth factors, and it is one of the many alternative therapies offered by Dr. Nikesh Seth and his team. This alternative therapy is available at Integrated Pain Consultants and may help some clients avoid the risks involved with surgery. The natural healing powers of stem cell therapy can be injected directly into the part of the body in need of repair, which is commonly the knee and hip. It capitalizes on the body’s ability to heal itself and is full of anti-inflammatory properties.
How Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy Works
Much better than a steroid or cortisone shot, and with more growth factors than even blood platelets, stem cell therapy may be able to offer permanent healing and relief. Whereas injections like steroids are a temporary solution, stem cell therapy takes concentrated growth factors and forces the body to kickstart the healing process even years after an injury has occurred.
Certain parts of the body, such as the joints, do not have good (or any) blood flow. Blood is necessary for healing because that is where proteins and growth factors are located. Amniotic stem cell injections have been used over 20,000 times with no permanent side effects, although it is common to feel sore for a couple of days post-treatment. However, there is no downtime or recovery period like there is with surgery.
Amniotic stem cell therapy isn’t for everyone, and there are some factors to consider. Some medications can interfere with the procedure, and the client needs to be willing to follow through with pre- and after-care instructions. In some cases, more than one injection may be necessary, particularly in areas with extensive damage.
Call Integrated Pain Consultants About Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy can use a person’s own stem cells, or amniotic stem cells may be a more viable option. Sometimes a combination of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections and stem cell therapy can provide the double-punch of proteins that the body needs to heal.
