Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a natural, alternative therapy that uses stem cell-based solutions to aid in tissue healing and regeneration. At Comprehensive Neurology and Pain Center of Connecticut, the team uses Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy™ procedures that utilize amniotic fluid for pain relief and symptom recovery.

Stem cell therapy involves injecting FDA-approved amniotic fluid into joint and bodily tissues that are injured, damaged, or inflamed. The components found in the amniotic fluid trigger your body's natural healing response to fight off inflammation, swelling, and pain for lasting relief and improved function and comfort.

What conditions can benefit from stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy can be beneficial for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Sacroiliac joint pain
  • Joint injuries
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Golfer's or tennis elbow

Stem cell therapy offers an alternative to surgery if you want to avoid the risks of surgery or the associated recovery period. Stem cell therapy can also be used before or after surgery to support your healing and possibly speed up your recovery process.

How does stem cell therapy work?

With Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy, you can enjoy the benefits of stem cell therapy with safe, evidence-based amniotic fluid injections. Amniotic fluid contains a variety of growth factors that trigger healing and tissue repair on a cellular level.

Amniotic fluid includes a component called basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), which signals your genes to trigger cellular growth and repair. This is useful for recovery of bodily tissues, like cartilage, ligaments, and muscles that have been damaged by wear-and-tear, arthritis, or trauma.

Amniotic fluid also contains collagen for tissue flexibility, cytokines for fighting inflammation, and elastins for tissue stretch. These nutrients provide the building blocks needed for healthy tissue growth and repair.

Am I a candidate for stem cell therapy?

To find out if stem cell therapy is right for you, schedule a consultation. During your consultation, the team asks about your symptoms and medical history and performs a thorough exam. If needed, the team may take X-rays or refer you for an MRI.

Neurological testing is available in the office, if needed. Based on your exam and symptoms, Dr. Turok determines your diagnosis and which treatment options are best for you. In addition to stem cell therapy, he offers PRP injections and other conservative therapies to give you the most complete recovery plan possible.
