Stem cell injections are an exciting regenerative treatment option that can heal injuries and degenerative conditions without surgery! Stem cells are the foundation of regenerative medicine. There are several common questions among patients. One such question is how long stem cell injections will last.
Let’s discuss the duration of stem cell injections and what you can expect after undergoing this regenerative treatment.
How Long Stem Cell Injections Last
The results of stem cell injections typically depend on the patient’s condition, as well as where the injections are administered. With that said, here at the Regenerative Orthopedic Institute, we’ve been administering stem cell procedures for over 12 years. Many of our patients who have received stem cell injections are still having excellent results over a decade later, with relief from pain and an increase in function. Considering these outcomes, stem cell injections can be a long-term solution to pain stemming from injuries or degenerative conditions affecting the joints.
Why Stem Cell Injections Work
Adult stem cells have the ability to repair and regenerate many different areas of the body. The regenerative abilities of stem cells are what makes them so effective at healing injuries and tissue damage caused by injury or degenerative conditions.
In stem cell therapy, stem cells are first extracted from the patient’s own body. These stem cells are then processed so that they’re isolated. This concentration of stem cells along with platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the treatment area. Platelets activate the stem cells, at which point they’ll get to work repairing the damaged tissue.
After stem cell injections are administered, the repair process can take anywhere from weeks to two to three months. However, most patients experience relief from pain and other symptoms long before the repair process is complete.
