Frequently Asked Questions
Have questions about stem cells and stem cell therapy? We’re happy to help answer them!
Below are some of the most frequently asked questions we ﬁeld at our clinic.
Which type of stem cells do you use for treatments?
We use umbilical stem cells exclusively at our clinic. Not only are they the most effective type of stem cells, they have long-lasting results, which means our clients typically only need one treatment session.
What can stem cell therapy heal?
Because they are so adaptable, stem cells have the potential to decrease inflammation, re-lease growth factors that help your cells repair damaged tissue, and modulate the immune sys-tem. Whether your injury or condition is based in your cartilage, tissue, or nerves, stem cells can help your body repair and recover. Once the stem cells are injected into your body at the site of pain, they begin to work by replicating the healthy cells around them and replacing the cells that are damaged. To know if you are the right fit for stem cell therapy, schedule a con-sultation today!
How are umbilical stem cells harvested?
After parents give consent, the umbilical cord is used after birth to harvest stem cells. This process is completely harmless to the mother and baby.
Is stem cell therapy expensive?
While most insurance plans won’t cover stem cell therapy, the procedure itself is still an af-fordable option for most. At our clinic, most of our clients will pay less than a copay for major surgery. And because the treatment provides long-term relief, there is rarely another need for more treatments or medication, making it much more affordable in the long-run.
How long does it take to feel a difference?
Stem cell treatments usually take between four and six weeks to deliver full results. Although some people feel relief almost instantly, it takes time for the cells injected in your body to re-generate and repair.
How do I know if stem cell therapy is right for me?
To know if you’re the right fit for stem cell therapy, the best thing you can do is to learn about how stem cells work. The more you understand the treatment, the better you’ll be able to de-termine if it’s a good choice for you and your pain. Our team is here to help you, too. By scheduling a consultation, we can review your medical history and better learn if our treat-ments will be beneficial.
Does the DNA in the stem cells need to match my own?
No. Because umbilical stem cells are in their infant stage, they aren’t specialized yet. This means that your body won’t recognize them as a threat, giving them the opportunity they need to regenerate and naturally repair your body.
