These are the words no one wants to hear when they’re suffering from constant knee pain: “There’s nothing else we can do. We’ll have to perform knee replacement surgery.”
This patient has probably already been through knee arthroscopy to repair the cartilage. Maybe they’ve even had meniscus surgery for a meniscectomy or meniscus replacement. Now they’re thinking about that knee surgery recovery time. How will they work? Take care of their family?
What would that patient say if they were offered a non-surgical solution for that pain with a short recovery time? What if this treatment could actually help the body heal the underlying issue causing the patient pain? You know they’d say yes immediately. That’s what’s possible with treatments that contain stem cells for knee pain.
Instead of the immense ordeal of knee replacement surgery, Mesenchymal Stromal Cells (MSC) injections for knee pain can be completed in a brief visit. The anti-inflammatory properties of treatment with MSC can mean that the patient is able to move more easily in just a couple of days. In the following days, these cells go to work to begin rebuilding injured tissues.
This is regenerative medicine, truly the medicine of the new millennium. This is medicine that doesn’t just try to mask symptoms. Instead, it initiates healing that can repair inflammation in both the joint and the bone itself, induce cartilage regrowth and restore synovial fluid.
Every human body contains many types of cells designed to heal problems like osteoarthritic knees. And not just osteoarthritis but also injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or medial collateral ligament (MCL).
The problem is that all these healing, regenerating cells are in shorter and shorter supply as we age. Actually, to some degree, this is common knowledge. You’ll hear people tell each other, “When you’re young, you heal faster. When you’re older, not so much.”
But in recent years, research on stem cells have provided a breakthrough solution to this slowdown. Concentrating regenerative cells from the most vibrant, dynamic source available has finally given patients and their doctors an effective solution to osteoarthritis and injuries that won’t heal completely.
That source is ethically-harvested Wharton’s Jelly, taken with informed consent from post-Caesarian section umbilical cord tissues. This substance is incredibly rich with healing, regenerating power.
Extract the Mesenchymal Stromal Cells from this tissue and use them in stem cell treatments, and arthritis and ligament injury patients can finally get back to the business of living.
A More Satisfying Offering for Medical Clinics
In addition to the satisfaction of the patient, the practitioner providing this treatment is often just as satisfied. They are no longer restricted to referring a patient out for physical therapy or surgery. And within their own practices, their options have just expanded beyond allopathic care.
But that’s not all. Stem cell treatments also allow practices to expand their cash services and avoid the frustrating runaround common to insurance company transactions.
In addition to regenerative treatments that contain stem cells and growth factors being medicine for the new millennium, it enables the practitioner to build themselves a practice for the new millennium. A cash-based, insurance-free practice focusing on helping the body do what it really wants to do — rebuild and repair itself.
