Stem Cell Prolotherapy

05/07/2018

Stem cell injection therapy for chronic pain or injury uses stem cells taken from the patient and then reinjected into the body at the point of injury. These types of cells then encourage healing by replacing the damaged cells in the body. Stem cell injection therapy is used to treat chronic pain and arthritis. 

Due to the need to aspirate stem cells from the patient, the overall treatment can take longer than other injection therapies and cost more. The procedure to remove stem cells can cause pain and soreness as well. It can take 1-2 hours to collect the cells and a few weeks before the cells are ready to be reinjected.
