Stem Cell Therapy has rapidly been gaining popularity for joint repair and treating pain. Scientists are calling this a “new era for Stem Cell Therapy in Jax FL” with the promising results of Human Umbilical Mesenchymal Stem Cells (or HUMCS for short….we know, it’s a mouthful!). Combing through the research can be overwhelming, so we’ve put together a list of reasons you should give Stem Cell Therapy a try.
5 Reasons to Try Stem Cell Therapy
Stem Cells Can Help Your Body Heal Itself: Stem Cells (and especially HUMCS) are unique in that they are able to become whatever types of cells they need to be. They can activate your immune system to respond to damaged areas, help repair damaged tissues, and can have anticancer properties. Scientists are continuing to explore the use of Stem Cells for heart disease, Parkinson’s, cancer and more. One cc of human umbilical cord stem cells we use contains 5-10 million stem cells that will replicate to around 500 million cells that can go out and help heal damaged tissue.
Stems Cells Are NOT Harvested From Aborted Babies: Unlike embryonic stem cells of the past, Stem Cells today can be harvested from umbilical cord tissue and cord blood donated by healthy mothers (ie. no dead babies involved). Some Stem Cell providers harvest stem cells from the patients hip and inject them into another joint..which can be pretty painful. Not only are Human Umbilical Mesenchymal Stem Cells (HUMCS) harvested painlessly, and without the controversy of embryonic cells, but they are also better quality, stronger stem cells than what can be harvested from our own bodies.
It’s Less Risky Than Surgery: Let’s be honest, there are a lot of scary risks associated with surgery such as infection, reactions to anesthesia, scarring, and even death. What’s worse is that 60% of people who undergo surgery have to return for a second surgery. Factor in the time you may have to take off work to recover and complete physical therapy for not just one, but possibly two surgeries…that’s a lot of time (and money…which we cover later in this list) for a procedure that may not work the first time.
Stem Cell Therapy Results Can Lasts Longer: While knee and hip replacements might last 10-15 years, Stem Cell Therapy results can last 30-40 years. Imagine your quality of life if you gained even 50% improvement and it lasted for 30-40 years! Patients who have already tried Stem Cell Therapy are seeing 85-95% success rate. Those who have received Stem Cell Therapy for knee pain are seeing an even higher rate of success at 99%. With low risks and great results, you can see why patients are willing to try Stem Cell Therapy for pain relief and joint issues.
It’s Less Expensive than Surgery: While Stem Cell Therapy for pain and joint issues is not covered by insurance, it will still cost you less than your deductible for surgery. Factor in the time you save getting back to work without the recovery time of traditional surgery, and the cost savings prove to be worth the investment.
We want to be clear. This is not a ‘magic pill’. It is not a ‘cure all’. It is not approved by the FDA. It is not guaranteed.
And yes, if you look at all of those things we just said then you could be explaining a very large number of the incredibly costly surgeries you are being advised to do. That’s right. You’d be shocked at the number of surgeries and medical procedures that are VERY commonplace that are NOT FDA approved, but since people are so used to them now, people don’t even bother to look into it.
Everything that works well now, was new at one time. We do need to keep a close eye, but at the same time, it should not stop you from taking care of you and getting the best medical options available. Stem cell therapy is changing lives. Get the facts!
