Traditional approaches to pain management include steroids, invasive surgeries, and anti-inflammatory pain medication. Many times, those approaches don’t work, and they end up merely masking symptoms instead of fixing the problem at its source.

The first step is for you to have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your pain levels, treatment history, and current options. If your doctor determines you’d benefit from stem cells, they can begin the treatment.
To begin, your physician starts by pinpointing exactly where your pain is originating. They then inject stem cells into those areas, allowing the cells to begin the healing process and lower inflammation levels.
The treatment only takes between 15-30 minutes, and you won’t need any downtime to recover. Generally, patients can experience results as soon as a few days but could take up to eight weeks to see the full results.
Most people respond well to one stem cell treatment. However, depending on the severity of your injury and pain, you may require up to three injections over the course of one year. Your Restoration Osteopathic Medicine provider will help you develop a stem cell treatment plan tailored to your needs.
