Do you have pain from Osteoarthritis (OA) in your knees, ankles, wrists, elbows or shoulders?
Apple Healthcare Group is one of a growing number of clinics across the country to offer a breakthrough treatment for those suffering from OA: Stem Cell and Regenerative Therapy .
What is Stem Cell and Regenerative Therapy?
Stem cells are the building blocks of the body. Your body has been healing itself with stem cells for its entire life. Most of the time, you can rely on these cells to see you through the healing process.
However, as we age, healing does not always come as easily. Our regenerative medicine treatment uses mesenchymal growth factors and stem cells from umbilical cord matrix to help the body heal faster, regenerate tissue and decrease pain allowing us to see better and faster results.
How Does it Work?
A typical treatment uses PRP ( Platelet Rich Plasma ) and an injection of mesenchymal stems cells (MSC) and growth factors. PRP is a concentration of your own platelets with high amounts of healing growth factors. Although, these treatments may be used independently, we have seen the combination of the two produces better clinical outcomes.
For severe cases, some patients choose second round of PRP that can be may be administered three months after the initial treatment to further improve results.
How Quickly Can I Expect Relief?
Most patients will feel significantly better within a month or two after treatment. Continued repair and improvement is common for the first 3-6 months after the regenerative procedure, and some
evidence suggests the treatment continues to rebuild for up to a year.
As with any innovative procedure results cannot be guaranteed. This procedure is not for everybody. Evaluation and discussion with the provider is paramount to see if you are a candidate.
Please call to set up your evaluation to see if, regenerative medicine therapy is right for you.
