Are You a Candidate for Stem Cell Therapy?

Are you one of the more than 50 million Americans who suffer from chronic pain each year? Everyone experiences pain occasionally. But if you’re struggling with chronic pain from an injury or underlying condition, the pain can last for weeks, months — sometimes years.   

At Integrative Medica in Salt Lake City, Utah, our care providers Jacob Schmutz, NMD, and Joshua Hersh, NMD, understand how chronic pain can disrupt your health, well-being, and quality of life. 

As part of our regenerative medicine services, we’re proud to offer stem cell therapy to alleviate your chronic pain safely and effectively. Take a moment to explore this nonsurgical treatment option and whether you’re a candidate for it. 

What is stem cell therapy?

To understand stem cell therapy and how it works, it’s important to understand stem cells. Stem cells are the unspecialized cells that our bodies use to repair worn or damaged areas 

Stem cell therapy uses harvested stem cells and injects them into areas of your body that need treatment. Once injected, the donor stem cells work naturally to repair the damage that’s causing your chronic pain or symptoms. 

Your body may create different types of cells from the stem cells it received, depending on the location and type of repairs required.

It’s important to note that not all stem cell therapies are created equal! Be sure to seek treatment from experienced medical professionals, like the team at Integrative Medica, to ensure you receive optimal therapy. 

Who can benefit from stem cell therapy?

This innovative therapy provides effective and lasting relief for people struggling with chronic pain from injuries or chronic underlying conditions, like arthritis. It can also boost your health in other ways, such as improving your immune system and reducing the signs of aging. 

Stem cell therapy can help to treat these and other conditions by:

One of the aspects of stem cell therapy is that it takes advantage of your body’s natural healing properties. By encouraging your body to regenerate and repair where you need it most, your pain eases without drugs or surgery, freeing you to live a fuller, pain-free life.

What’s more, stem cells have anti-inflammatory properties, making it easier for your body to repair damaged areas. In other words, stem cell therapy heals your body faster, so you can return to your life sooner. 

Am I a candidate for stem cell therapy?

People with many conditions, especially chronic pain, are frequently good candidates for stem cell therapy. Your care provider at Integrative Medica evaluates your symptoms and medical history to determine if stem cell therapy is right for you. 

As with other medical treatments, the FDA verifies the quality and integrity of stem cell therapy protocols before approving them for use. You can rest easy knowing that with Integrative Medica, the stem cell therapies you receive are safe and approved by the FDA

Stem cells are a natural part of your body, so negative reactions to the therapy are extremely rare. The most common side effects include swelling and inflammation, and mild bruising at the site where you receive the injections.
