OPINION ADVERTORIAL – Current treatments for the painful and debilitating effects of arthritis or joint pain rely on early intervention with synthetic drugs and, in severe cases, surgery. The pharmaceutical approach to these conditions is still not effective for some 20 percent to 40 percent of those suffering from arthritis or other degenerative joint conditions.
Stem Cell Therapy provides a promising alternative to surgery by promoting safe and natural healing, according to the National Institute of Health. The less invasive approach stem cell therapy offers attracts thousands each year.
The East West Health clinics in Utah are among the few clinics in the country to offer amniotic stem cell therapy. With convenient locations in Salt Lake, Layton, Ogden, West Valley City & St. George, East West Health’s clinicians are ready to get you back to the activity levels you desire.
Amniotic stem cell therapy
Stem cells are found in all of us and play a key role in the body’s healing process. They lie latent in your body until they receive signals that the body has suffered an injury and then they follow your platelets to the injured site.
Stem cells are able to transform into the same type of cell that was injured to promote healing. They are tasked to heal injured ligaments, tendons, tissues and bones. After an injury, or as a natural result of aging, the amount of stem cells needed in certain areas of the body declines. Stem cell therapy solves this problem by delivering a high concentration of stem cells into the injured area promoting natural healing.
The amniotic stem cell therapy procedure is simple and takes just 15 minutes with pain relief in 24-48 hours. The therapy can be performed right in the East West Health office and provides pain relief without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, hospital stays or prolonged recovery. There is zero recovery time after amniotic stem cell therapy. Most experience complete joint restoration of ligaments, tendons and cartilage in 28 days.
Amniotic stem cell therapy is very safe and effective. The injections have been used over 10,000 times in the United States with no reported adverse side effects and have a 100 percent safety record in Europe with hundreds of thousands of patients.
This type of stem cell comes from the amniotic sac, not an embryo. While ethical debates have arisen about embryonic stem cell therapy, most everyone agrees that the use of amniotic stem cell therapy raises no ethical or moral questions.
How it Works
Stem cell treatment takes advantage of the body’s ability to repair itself. With amniotic stem cell therapy, your East West Health provider will inject stem cells from amniotic tissues into your body. Similar to cortisone and steroid shots, stem-cell injections have anti-inflammatory properties, but offer far more benefits than those of standard injection therapies.
While cortisone and other drugs only provide temporary pain relief, stem cells actually restore degenerated tissue while providing pain relief. The growth factors in amniotic stem cells may replace damaged cells in your body. Additionally, stem cell injections contain hyaluronic acid, which lubricates joints and tendons, easing the pain and helping restore mobility.
The amniotic stem cells can turn into any type of tissue found in joints other than nerve tissue. Depending on the different tissues that are damaged, the stem cells can turn into whatever your joint needs which can quite often be a combination of cartilage, ligament, tendon, bone or muscle. This is a curative treatment. You can literally grow new joints tissue. Once your joint is healed, it is healed.
The oldest research to date shows that 100 percent of recipients who benefited from stem cell therapy were still pain free 4 years later. Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy allows our state-of-the-art clinics across the Wasatch Front and Southern Utah to treat and rehabilitate your pain and injuries without drugs or surgery.
