Stem Cell Candidate Quiz
Am I a candidate for stem cell treatment ? This question is being asked by more people.
Stem cell therapy is a medical procedure in which stem cells are used to prevent and/or treat some kind form of disease or injury, such as osteoarthritis or a torn ligament.
At our facility in Mount Vernon we utilize stem cells harvested from the umbilical cord full term baby healthy parents and baby sourced from an FDA approved lab. All of our treatments are safe, ethical and follow FDA guidelines. As more and more information regarding stem cell technology seeps into mainstream discourse, you may find yourself asking, “is stem-cell therapy right for me and my condition?”
There are few factors that exempt a candidate from stem cell therapy, but each case is unique, so there are not always steadfast rules. Candidates for stem cell treatment come from all different walks of life, however, let’s discuss some common cases that are good candidates for stem cell therapy:
Active lifestyle it’s good to have the foresight that, at some point, you may hurt yourself. And some athletes have already come to terms with this possibility, knowing that they will injure themselves. So if you’re one of these individuals – setting yourself up for a potentially bad outcome – then stem cell therapy may be a treatment to consider. The healing and regenerative potential of stem cell therapy may allow an athlete or active individual to avoid potentially life-long damage and to continue their activities much longer then they would have been able to do otherwise.
Individuals with osteoarthritis are also good candidates for stem cell therapy. Osteoarthritis describes the deterioration of cartilage that protects and cushions the ends of the joints. Cartilage helps with joint movement and prevents friction and painful joint mobility. With stem cell therapy, we can restore the cartilage that has been damaged due to osteoarthritis. Stem cells also act as natural anti-inflammatories and can help with overall pain reduction and swelling in the area.
Individuals Recommended for Surgery
For those who have been recommended to undergo surgery for their painful knee, shoulder, hip or elbow condition, stem cell therapy provides a viable alternative solution. For instance, in the case of someone with severe osteoarthritis who has been recommended to undergo surgery, stem cell therapy can help to restore joint space narrowing (even in the case of bone on bone) and make it possible for patients to avoid total joint replacement. There are many reasons for a patient to not want to perform surgery, whether it’s the risks involved, the extensive recovery period, or a personal preference, and stem cell therapy can help alleviate these worries.
Ideally, candidates are people who are dedicated toward the prevention of their condition and should also be willing to treat anything else that might be affecting their condition. While stem cells often provide wonderful results, the technology is not a “miracle-worker.” Stem cell therapy cannot “cure” a disorder or disease – the patient has to have realistic expectations about the procedure and know that their participation in getting better is imperative in actually getting better.
Although stem cell therapy is supported and backed by a years of research, and evidence, it is still a developing science. Ultimately, your medical procedures are a personal decision – we hope to only enlighten those who may not be aware of stem cell therapy and demonstrate that it can help you on your road to recovery.
