Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is one of a collection of relatively new treatments called regenerative medicine techniques. Regenerative medicine uses cells and other substances your body makes naturally to aid tissue repair and healing and promote the growth of new, healthy tissue.

Stem cell therapy harnesses the power of specialized cells that have the unique ability to change into other kinds of cells. Stem cells are present in high numbers during pregnancy and in young infants, as they play such an essential role in tissue growth.

The number of stem cells you have decreases with age, although you still have them in your bone marrow and fatty tissues. Harvesting your cells or using donated stem cells boosts the regenerative potential of damaged or painful tissues to help resolve chronic pain problems.

What happens during stem cell therapy?

The team at TruWell Health carries out stem cell therapy in the office. It’s a fast, minimally invasive process that doesn’t require any sedation or anesthesia. 

Your provider can apply a numbing cream to the injection site if you’re very sensitive or dislike needles, but the injection shouldn’t be too uncomfortable.

Your provider at TruWell Health injects the stem cells into the area from where your chronic pain radiates. This is a procedure that’s most effective when the stem cells reach the heart of the tissue damage.

Following your stem cell therapy session, you can continue with your day as normal. Stem cell therapy requires no downtime and poses minimal risks of adverse reactions because the cells are human biological material rather than an artificial or chemical substance.

  • Arthritis
