Recovering After A Stem Cell Treatment

When you have had stem cell treatment, you will need to take care of yourself once the procedure is done. The road to recovery depends on your ability to take care of your body. You will need to be cautious and careful in order for the treatment to help you combat long-term conditions and injuries.

You are your body’s best advocate. Remember that your new cells are going to be delicate and tender; therefore, you will need to give special attention and care to ensure that they are able to grow and help you heal. You will need to take control of your body and be extra kind to your new cells.

Your body will typically tell you how it feels about participating in certain activities, but a good rule to follow is: if it hurts, do not do it! Even though stem cell therapy works to reduce pain and help you recover from injuries, the procedure will leave your body sore after it has been done. Over time, that soreness will ease, but you will need to cautiously proceed with activities going forward. You will generally experience discomfort and pain within the first week of treatment, but this will vary from person-to-person. Muscle spasms are not uncommon after stem cell treatment. You can alternate cold and hot pressure to help with muscle spasms and inflammation.

Although you want to use caution with activities, it is a good idea to move around and walk frequently. Do not go up and down stairs within the first two weeks after injections. You should definitely avoid running and lifting weights within week one and two post-procedure. As time goes on, you can increase your activity. For instance, you can swim or use an elliptical machine three to four weeks after injections, but you should avoid running on the treadmill until week two or three post-procedure.

Remember not to overdo it, regardless of how great you feel. Your body still needs to heal. To learn more about stem cell treatment, comment below, or contact us directly.

Joint Pain Impacting Your Physical Activity?

If you participate in sports, and have been sidelined with an injury, you do not have to quit – just yet. Thanks to stem cell therapy, there is a way to treat the pain, and to help your joints regain flexibility.

There are different sports injuries that you could suffer from, including those that impact your knees, shoulders, and elbows. Stem cell therapy could help repair your torn ligaments or tendons, and help you recover from the injury or medical condition. You no longer have to say goodbye to a sports activity that you play professionally or for leisure. Your body can use stem cells in order to repair itself. These injections into your shoulders, knee, and elbows can help attract other stem cells to the injured areas of your body. The injections could also help transform the cells into new tissues, such as cartilage.

Stem cell therapy has been known to combat long-term problems that are associated with cartilage damage. You will typically need to have a series of three or four injections to help treat your sports injury, but you can have more. This is known as follow-up treatment.

 If you have suffered from a sports related injury, do not give up hope. Stem cell therapy is a method that could help you reduce the pain associated with the injury, and it could help you recover from the injury. Quitting sports or physical activity, and giving into the injury should never be your answer. Stem cell therapy has helped many people save their professional careers, or continue on with sports activities done for leisure.
