Stem Cell Therapy Is Not Just For Pro Athletes

I recently updated the condition of Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitching ace Garrett Richards. After suffering a high-grade tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow back in May, he chose to be treated with Stem Cell Therapy rather than the traditional Tommy John Surgery. That surgery would have sidelined Richards for as long as 18 months while he endured a long and tough recovery. He would not have played again until 2018.

Amazingly, after just 12 weeks, Richards had healed sufficiently to be cleared for throwing a baseball. Now, a couple of months later in his rehab, his physician told him he can prepare for 2017 Spring Training!

Many other professional athletes, including hundreds of NFL players have used Stem Cell Therapy, which the NFL views as a medical treatment, not a steroid issue, according to a report in Sports Illustrated.

Available to everyone

If Stem Cell Therapy works for someone who will be testing it at the demanding performance level of major league baseball, football, and other professional sports, people like you and me can feel confident that Stem Cell Therapy can be a fast and effective solution for mainstream injuries. In fact, I’ve seen it work again and again as a fast, safe and effective treatment for tennis elbow, knee pain, shoulder pain, Achilles injuries, degenerative disc disease, and other sports or overuse injuries.

The experienced pain management doctors at NJ Pain Care Specialists currently perform Stem Cell Therapy using a quick and relatively painless in-office procedure to harvest stem cells from the millions that live in your body. The cells are processed and then injected into your problem area, where the natural healing process begins. The adult stem cells reproduce quickly and have the potential to restore and repair injured tissue and joints.

Please contact New Jersey Pain Care Specialists to discuss what Stem Cell Therapy, or other safe, non-invasive procedures, can do to help you heal and get back to living without pain.

At the present time, Stem Cell Therapy is not covered by medical insurance.
