Stem Cell Treatments Q & A

What are stem cells?

Stem cells possess the innate ability to help your body repair itself naturally. These cells are the only cells that can change into any other cell type.

Stem cells can transform into various cells, including those found in your:

  • Muscles
  • Nerves
  • Cartilage
  • Bones
  • Liver 

When you’re injured,  stem cells act as your body’s first responders. These regenerative cells migrate to areas of your body affected by injury or disease to help repair the damage. 

With age, your supply of stem cells tapers off. Some stem cells go dormant or become less responsive. 

These changes happen when you’re relatively young. By age 30, your supply of stem cells has dropped by more than half. By age 60, you have just 5% of your stem cells reservoir left. Alternative Disc Therapy offers treatment to reverse this inevitable decline.

What can stem cell treatments address?

Stem cells treatments may enhance healing for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Joint injuries
  • Cartilage damage
  • Degenerative spinal disc disease 
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Cognitive decline
  • Disc degeneration
  • Joint arthritis 
  • Sports injuries
  • Aging
  • Osteoarthritis of the hips and knees

Alternative Disc Therapy provides stem cell treatment to minimize pain and increase function while offering the potential to reverse the degenerative process. 

How do I get stem cell treatments?

Stem cell treatments are a simple outpatient procedure at Alternative Disc Therapy. Surgery and anesthesia aren’t required. Your treatment results in little to no downtime.

Alternative Disc Therapy uses autologous bone marrow-derived stem cells to treat your condition. This treatment is safe and effective, and most patients return to their everyday activities the day after treatment.  

What is stem cell treatment for degenerative disc disease?

Before now, treatment for degenerative disc disease included medications, which carry side effects, or major surgery. Major surgery requires significant downtime and might not provide lasting relief. 

Stem cells offer a unique potential to reduce pain and dysfunction related to degenerative disc disease. The therapy also has the possibility to reverse degenerative changes in the disc.

What are stem cell treatments for osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis commonly affects your knee and hip joints. Long-term use damages the joints and cartilage in your knees and hips. Once the cartilage is damaged, your body has limited ability to repair it. 

Until now, osteoarthritis treatments were limited to medications (which can carry side effects), temporary lubricating agents, or surgery. stem cell treatment is an innovative method to promote healing in the joint, without further traumatizing it.
