Stem Cell Therapy: Side Effects & Aftercare

 

Two of the biggest trending questions about stem cell therapy, aside from insurance coverage and costs, are what is the aftercare from a stem cell therapy injection and are there any side effects.

 

We’re going to answer both of these questions today.

 

Stem Cell Therapy Side Effects

The products we use are FDA regulated as a human cell and tissue product (HCT/P) and are intended for homologous (human to human) use. Fortunately, the chances of a reaction towards this treatment are immeasurably small for most individuals.

ice pack for injection site painThe only side effects that have been reported are redness and slight swelling to the injection site. These side effects usually subside within a few hours or days after the procedure.

If this happens, we urge our patients to use ice packs on the injection site and do not take ibuprofen for the swelling, as NSAIDs can hinder the results of the regenerative injection.

 

Stem Cell Therapy Aftercare

While stem cell therapy remains a minimally evasive, safe, and effective treatment protocol for osteoarthritic joints like knees, shoulders, and hips, we do ask our patients to follow a simple routine of aftercare.

 

walking for recovery stem cellsWalking – We encourage our patients to get active just by walking. Walking is one of the best full-body, low-impact exercises. Once our patients receive a regenerative therapy injection, they find great joy in indulging in this once sometimes painful activity again.

 

Joint-Specific Exercises – We provide our patients with specific exercises to help rehabilitate the joint that has received a regenerative injection. These exercises and stretches can help patients increase their range of motion in conjunction with their post-injection therapy.

 

We also suggest to our patients that they keep a journal as to how they are experiencing the changes to their joint(s) after the regenerative injection.

A few items of interest our patients have told us include:

  • Being able to walk up and down the stairs without pain
  • Walking longer distances and durations
  • Ease in getting up from a seated position
  • No stiffness in the mornings when they wake up

 

weight loss as a result of stem cells injectionsWe should also mention that one of the best side effects of regenerative stem cell therapy injections is weight loss as a result of the increased physical activity!

Thinking About Regenerative Therapy?

 

Are you considering Regenerative Therapy?

 

A full suite of Regenerative Therapy treatments is now available at Ohio Therapy Centers for treating chronic osteoarthritic pain.

 

This breakthrough treatment option provides pain relief and healing without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, hospital stays, or prolonged recovery and downtime from life.

By using a range of regenerative medicine treatments in conjunction with one another, we can help you reach a fuller recovery with fewer undesirable side effects.

 


 

Some of the most popular Regenerative Treatments we offer are:

 

Amniotic Allograft Injections

 

This tissue comes from the innermost layer of the placenta, the tissue that shields the fetus during pregnancy. Amniotic tissue, which is donated during C-section, is considered the only tissue that is universally appropriate for the purpose of transplants.

  • Contain hyaluronic acid, which lubricates cartilage and promotes new cartilage growth.
  • Contain no steroids. Instead, the injections rely on naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agents, such as cytokines, which are small proteins released by cells that have a specific effect on the interactions between cells, on communications between cells or on the behavior of cells.
  • Contain growth factors, which stimulate tissue growth.
  • Carry no threat of patient rejection.

 

This tissue is accepted without the risk of rejection. All donors go through a rigorous screening process, as determined by the FDA and American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB).

 

Ohio Therapy Centers also offers Regenerative Therapy using Cord Blood Stem Cells

 

Cord Blood is very safe and effective for healing and repairing chronic osteoarthritic joint pain issues.

The cord blood stem cell treatments we use are derived exclusively from the umbilical cord after delivery of a baby, which is the safest and least-invasive method of extraction available.

Once again, all cord blood donors go through a rigorous screening process, as determined by the FDA and American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB).

 

Regenerative Therapy has been acknowledged in medical history across the world as a big discovery in natural healing.

 


 

How is Regenerative Therapy done?

 

After your initial consultation with our experienced doctors to see if this type of treatment can work for you, we schedule a time for you to come into our office for the procedure, which takes less than one hour to perform. 

Our Doctors, Physician Assistants, and Nurse Practitioners use ultrasound-guided imaging to find the best place to inject the matrix mixture of cells, growth factors, proteins, collagen, and hyaluronic acid into your joint. 

The matrix mixture starts to metamorphosize into different cells; this allows the growth factors to become tissue cells, bone cells, or other kinds that are needed in that area. This ability to become whatever cells are necessary for the affected area is what medical practitioners believe is so unique about Regenerative Therapy.

This huge number of growth factors injected into the body will help in healing the injuries at an accelerated pace. 

 


The best results for Regenerative Therapy are most often seen in osteoarthritic joints like the knees, hips, and shoulders.

Stem Cell Therapy: Is it Right for You?

Stem Cell Therapy is one of the newest, most versatile, safe, and highly effective non-invasive medical treatments available today.

 

Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy uses your own body’s healing capacity to transform damaged cells into new, healthy cells. These new cells then replicate, creating additional new, healthy cells; these cells can become a range of cell types, including but not limited to bone cells, cartilage cells, and muscle cells.

Stem Cells grow into healthy versions of unhealthy or damaged cells, resulting in faster healing and providing alternatives to costly, painful, and invasive surgeries. 

There’s no doubt Stem Cell Therapy has been a tremendous benefit for countless patients who want to be free of pain and get back to an active and healthy lifestyle.

 

We’re sure you are wondering about Stem Cell Therapy and if it will work for you.

The biggest question we encounter is, am I a good candidate for this remarkably new non-invasive treatment option?

The questions below will help you determine whether or not you should pursue Stem Cell Therapy.

 

♦ Do you suffer from chronic joint pain due to osteoarthritis or an acute joint injury?

knee pain surgery or stem cellsStem Cell Therapy has proven most successful in the treatment of chronic joint pain associated with osteoarthritis in areas such as knees, hips, elbows, ankles, and wrists.

How successful? While clinical tests routinely delivered an 85% success rate, our offices have around a 98% success rate with our patients experiencing life-changing benefits thanks to Stem Cell Therapy.

 

♦ Would you rather have a less invasive, drug-free, long-term treatment for your chronic pain?

Stem Cell Therapy is, for many patients, the best alternative to highly-invasive, painful, and potentially ineffective joint replacement surgery.

With Stem Cell Therapy, patients typically begin feeling relief a few weeks after the initial procedure — some of our patients have told us it’s almost overnight — and this relief often continues for years, resulting in decreased pain and increased mobility WITHOUT SURGERY or the need for addictive prescription meds for pain!

 

♦ Do you want to avoid surgery if possible?

Stem Cell Therapy heals the disease or damage causing the pain, because of this, Stem Cell Therapy is an effective alternative to many traditional joint repair surgeries like knee replacement. Plus, there is no downtime!

Patients who receive Stem Cell injections often delay the need for surgery for many years, sometimes even longer. Because stem cells heal the treated areas, many patients find they no longer need surgery at all.

 

♦ Are you interested in a non-invasive treatment that can be performed in-office with no negative side-effects and a high success rate?

amniotic allograft cord blood stem cellsBecause Stem Cell Therapy uses an amniotic allograft and/or cord blood stem cells from viable donors — all donors go through a rigorous screening process, as determined by the FDA and American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) — to heal or replace damaged cells, patients are not at risk of many side-effects common invasive joint replacement surgery.

The procedure itself takes about 15 minutes in our office to perform and once again, most of our patients have reported an almost overnight relief of their pain, with an almost 98% success rate with our patients.
