What is stem cell therapy?
Stem cell therapy is an exciting new procedure from the burgeoning world of regenerative medicine. It’s a simple in-office treatment that can offer long-term relief for patients who suffer from joint pain, arthritis, and neuropathy. At Complete Wellness NYC our experienced physicians use stem cells obtained from a donor placenta. These cells are then injected directly into the damaged area of the body, such as a knee, hip or shoulder. The procedure takes no more than 30 minutes, is extremely safe and entails only minimal, temporary pain.
How does stem cell therapy work?
Stem cells from the placenta contain the perfect building blocks of biologically active substances to promote self-healing and stimulate rejuvenation. Among these key properties are: proteins, hormones, vitamins, enzymes, growth factors, DNA, RNA and other natural substances. The combination of these stimulate dormant cells in the body to reverse damage and encourage regeneration. Because the stem cells of the placenta are non-immunogenic, there is almost no risk of rejection or side effects. Over several months following treatment, the stem cells and growth factors facilitate re-growth of cartilage, ligaments, tissues and nerves. It is a simple procedure, but one that can have a life-changing impact on relieving pain and restoring function.
What are the advantages of stem cell therapy over other options?
Placental stem cell therapy is being embraced for treatment in a wide range of areas, including: joint repair, pain and injury management, heart disease, osteoarthritis, and skin rejuvenation, among others. This popularity can be attributed to a number of advantages that the procedure offers over other options. For starters, it can provide effective long-term results, unlike many other approaches such as medication or injections. And unlike surgery, stem cell therapy is less risky, substantially less painful and doesn’t involve lengthy downtime.
