Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a regenerative medicine. This form of treatment leverages your body’s natural ability to heal and repair itself by introducing healthy stem cells to the damaged area.

Stem cells are your body’s building blocks. There are a variety of stem cells. You can find adult stem cells in several types of adult tissue including the brain, bone marrow, blood vessels, blood, and skeletal muscles. You can also find stem cells in placenta tissue and embryos.

During stem cell therapy, your provider injects healthy stem cells into the source of your pain or tissue degeneration. This triggers your body’s natural healing response and reduces pain.

What conditions does stem cell therapy treat?

The Washington Integrative Health team recommends stem cell therapy for numerous musculoskeletal conditions, including:

  • Osteoarthritis and joint degeneration
  • Chronic pain, especially in the back, neck, or shoulder
  • Hip, knee, and shoulder injuries

Stem cell therapy can significantly improve your recovery following an injury and, in some cases, help you avoid surgery.

What can I expect from stem cell therapy?

When you have stem cell therapy, you can expect to see a variety of improvements, including:

  • Reduced pain and inflammation
  • Less friction between joints
  • Increased mobility
  • Stronger joints

Because of the regenerative nature of stem cell therapy, these benefits occur over weeks or months, not instantaneously. As your body heals, however, you can expect to see improvements on a daily basis.

What are the benefits of stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that takes place on-site at Washington Integrative Health during an office visit. This medical treatment is well-tolerated and has few side effects. After your injection, you can resume regular activities within one to two days.

This innovative therapy is also a less invasive treatment than surgery, yet typically delivers equal results without the downtime, pain medication, or risks that come with surgical procedures. In fact, many men and women regain full mobility and strength in the treatment site after stem cell therapy.
