What You Need to Know About Regenerative Medicine Treatments
A great deal of people suffer from chronic joint pain in the United States – around twenty percent of the population are suffering right now and nearly everyone will experience some form of chronic pain at some stage in their lives.
You may have heard of Regenerative medicine treatments. Here at MCFRM, we use Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Bone Marrow Stem cells for treating joint and spine injuries and degeneration. There are numerous studies and evidence showing their efficacy, if performed by qualified Physicians.
We only use autologous cells, which means we use your own cells to treat you. We do not use cord blood, umbilical cord cells, or Wharton’s jelly, as there are NO studies or data showing that they have any benefit in treating Orthopedic issues in the joints and spine.
Autologous Bone Marrow Stem Cells Have Been Proven Effective Against Constant, Chronic Pain from Musculoskeletal Injuries and Degeneration.
The evidence for the success of Bone Marrow stem cell therapy remains ‘preliminary’ although reports are extremely positive. In one study that was undertaken, some patients were offered Bone Marrow stem cell therapy to treat chronic knee pain, while others were offered a traditional knee replacement. It was discovered that during the decade that followed, seven out of ten patients who underwent Bone Marrow stem cell therapy said they were satisfied with their experiences, while only three out of ten patients who underwent a knee replacement said they were content with the results.
In addition, two out of every ten knee replacements required a second bout of surgery.
If You Are Suffering From Back Pain, Regenerative Medicine Could Be The Answer You Are Looking For
Further studies have been completed to gauge the effectiveness of Bone Marrow stem cell therapy in tackling back pain. In one study using Bone Marrow stem cell therapy, 70 percent of patients reported a reduction in the levels of pain they were experienced, and in 40 percent of patients disc regeneration was observed. Perhaps most significantly of all, 76 percent of patients in the study avoided surgery.
