Stem Cell Therapy it’s Worth a Shot?

Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy it’s Worth a Shot?

Desert Health Specialists prides themselves of providing patients cutting edge treatment options such as Amniotic stem cell therapy for pain relief.  If you or someone you know is facing a decision of whether or not they should have surgery why not try this proven alternative treatment.  Amniotic stem cell therapy enhances the repair of damaged ligaments, tendons, and cartilage and can help to restore the body naturally to its optimal functionality.  These treatments are even being used by professional athletes in all sports and this could be that game changer treatment you have been looking for.

Amniotic stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that could be of benefit to you.  Stem cells are found in different tissues in the body and we use them to regenerate various tissues when injected into different sites of the body.  At Desert Health Specialists we use Amniotic Stem Cells because there is no painful procedure involved to extracting stem cell from your body, you just reap the benefits after the treatment is done.

Stem cell injections have the potential of making NEW CELLS where there was damaged tissue and in doing so provides pain relief.  Cortisone injections on the other hand simply provide an anti-inflammatory response to help reduce pain, but does not contain any regenerative cells or growth factors that lead to repair of the damaged tissue.  A great example of an amniotic stem cell treatment would be for a rotator cuff or ACL tear.  Normally these tears would need a surgical procedure to be repaired.  However, when injecting amniotic stem cells at the site of injury, either rotator cuff or ACL, allowing healing to occur without surgery or as we say Naturally!

The National Institute of Health considers stem cell therapy to be one of the most promising alternatives to invasive therapies.  This is not only because it promotes healing, but is a natural way to achieve the healing that your body requires.

In summary, this Stem Cell Therapy procedure appears to have a very good safety record and potentially more effective in the treatment of degenerative arthritis than standard treatments such as steroid or hyluronic injections. As you can see it’s a less invasive procedure then a joint replacement for patients. There is absolutely no guarantee that this procedure will eliminate arthritis pain, but the trends in current study populations appear to show some promise.
