Stem cell treatment is an innovative, alternative treatment that many patients can benefit from receiving. It can help with joint pain, ligament and tendon damage, and back injuries. However, as new information rapidly emerge, so do the myths and misconceptions. This sometimes dissuades patients from considering the treatment — and we want you to have all of the facts straight.
These are the top three stem cell treatment myths we hear from our patients on a daily basis.
Some patients are opposed to using stem cells that come from embryos because of their personal belief system. Embryonic stem cells are valuable to stem cell researchers and are frequently used in treatments. However, stem cells are also obtained from adult human tissue such as bone marrow, adipose tissue, and muscle tissue.
Stem cells are always thoroughly inspected and reviewed before being used in any kind of treatment method. Patients will not receive stem cells that have any type of dysfunction that can cause disorders or disease.
We sometimes see patients who think that the recovery process with stem cell treatment will be similar to surgery. Surgery often takes several weeks to fully recover from and will require significant downtime. Stem cell treatment has a much quicker recovery process, even if you have physical therapy treatment afterward. This makes stem cell treatment an excellent choice for busy professionals or elderly individuals who simply do not have the time or stamina for lengthy recovery processes. Stem cell treatment is more convenient and less time to consume for patients when it comes to the recovery process.
