Have you been iffy about trying stem cell therapy for your joint pain? If you’ve read about this treatment, you know that it is still in development and research. You have also probably found many testimonials as to its effectiveness, but new treatments can be scary, especially when you don’t know if it will work. But there are some excellent reasons to go ahead and give stem cell therapy a try.
Stem cell therapy carries virtually no risks. The stem cells, and PRP if used, are harvested from your own body. That means no chances of rejection and no risks of transmittable diseases.
It’s Minimally Invasive.
Some arthritis and joint injury treatments are quite invasive, up to and including surgical interventions, but stem cell therapy is minimally invasive, with just two needle pricks required.
It Could Relieve Joint Pain.
If you have been dealing with joint pain for quite some time or if it has recently gotten worse, the pain alone can be debilitating. Stem cell therapy could relieve some of that pain, although it might take a few weeks.
It Could Prevent Surgery.
Stem cell therapy may also be able to eliminate the need for joint replacement surgery. The stem cells are part of the body’s natural healing process, which means that injecting them into the joint may heal it and remove the need for surgery.
It Compliments Physical Therapy.
Combining the use of stem cell therapy and physical therapy can be very beneficial. The stem cells work to heal the joint, while the physical therapy strengthens it. This can facilitate faster healing and recovery.
