Despite the buzz about stem cell therapy, you may be afraid of the potential side effects.
We don’t blame you, especially since reputable institutes like the American Cancer Society warn against the side effects for cancer treatments.
What you may not know is these organizations extract stem cells from your own bone marrow. They offer stem cell transplants that cause terrible damage to your body.
But stem cell therapy from amniotic stem cells has minimal to no risk.
Experienced pain specialists offer stem cell injections that are 100% safe. They are a regenerative medicine that brings lasting healing to your body.
If you have cancer pain, chronic pain, or a sports injury keep reading to learn more about the side effects of stem cell therapy.
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
If you’ve never heard of this treatment, it is an all-natural injection that helps patients get real pain relief.
The procedure uses stem cells, or cells that have the ability to copy other cells. Doctors inject them into the pain site so they can turn into brand new versions of your muscle and nerve cells.
Most pain management techniques involve drugs and medications that only cover up the pain and negative symptoms. Stem cell treatments are unique since they provide deep healing to the injection site and aren’t addictive.
This is a fantastic option for anyone who has suffered from intense pain. But the side effects can be quite alarming if you’ve not done your homework on the treatment.
Thankfully, stem cell injections are completely safe.
Stem Cell Transplants vs. Stem Cell Injections
We see many patients confuse stem cell based bone marrow transplants and stem cell injections. They see the risks involved with extracting stem cells from the bone marrow and assume those side effects exist are the same for all treatments.
The great news is that our stem cell injections are a minimal to no-risk option that you can try as a part of a personalized treatment plan.
Stem Cell Transplants: Harmful Consequences
Stem cell transplants involve invading the bone marrow for nutrient-rich adult stem cells. Then, a doctor injects them into the pain site.
Many cancer patients undergo these procedures in addition to radiation and chemotherapy. You’ll see an extended list of painful symptoms that result from preparing for, entering, and exiting the transplant.
Stem Cell Injections: Minimal to No Risk
On the other hand, pain specialists draw stem cell injections from amniotic stem cells rather than your own body. These come from the contents of a c-section with the woman’s permission and don’t touch the baby.
That saves you from tremendous suffering and side effects. And they can alleviate pain in your knees, spinal cord, and other parts of the body.
By choosing to get a stem cell injection, you can prevent a doctor from violating the body’s ability to create red and white blood cells and platelets.
Side Effects of Stem Cell Transplants
As we’ve discussed, people with cancer experience agony with stem cell transplants. The doctor conducts a stem cell bone marrow transplant, which means they have long-term side effects that others won’t ever get.
Those symptoms are a combination of conditioning treatments that prepares your body to have adult stem cell types pulled from the bone marrow.
And then, the immune system suffers from the actual extraction and the aftermath.
These include but are not limited to:
- Mouth and throat pain
- Nausea and vomiting
- Infection (before engraftment)
- Pneumonitis (lung tissue inflammation)
- Graft-versus-host disease (when stem cells see your body’s cells as foreign invaders)
Side Effects of Stem Cell Injections
So what are the side effects of stem cell injection?
The procedure itself isn’t painful, and you’ll walk away from the injection with minor post-procedural soreness. This is a normal experience, and it disappears within 24 to 48 hours.
We’ve seen little risk of infection and a high success rate with clinical trials and our own patients.
After that, you’ll begin to feel pain relief in the target area. Some patients in our stem cell clinic even report long-term healing with pain that never returns again.
There’s a major difference in trigger points and joints that used to bother you for years with amniotic stem cells.
Is Stem Cell Therapy Safe?
As we’ve discussed, stem cell transplants can be done in a controlled environment but cause damage to your body. They are considered safe treatments but produce negative side effects you’ll experience along the procedure process.
You can avoid unnecessary pain and get away with an all-natural, non-invasive treatment by choosing stem cell injections. They give peace of mind knowing you can get joy again and alleviate debilitating pain.
