Patients commonly ask how much you can expect to heal from Stem Cell Therapy in Irvine. Does it actually work? Well this can be a loaded question. But to simplify the answer, it depends on the type of stem cells, the doctor performing the procedure and the actual condition being treated.

Let’s review how umbilical cord stem cells actually work.

When the cells are injected into the injured joint or tissue, they inhibit the damaging inflammatory components and modulate the immune system. At the same time, the stem cells produce growth factors that nourish damaged cells back to health and stimulate our own stem cells to regenerate themselves. Studies have shown that even if you have an abundant amount of growth factors, they are unable to stimulate regeneration and healing in the presence of inflammation.  And this is why many people suffer with chronic pain, which can develop into osteoarthritis and other illnesses.  So to recap, stem cells first inhibit inflammation and then stimulate our own tissues to heal and regenerate the damaged area.

Stem Cell Treatment Testimonials

Meet our first patient, Jay.  He is a law enforcement officer and a personal trainer.  Jay had a meniscus tear in his knee and was told by his doctor that he was almost bone on bone and needed surgery.  He was also told that he might not be able to return to his normal activity even after the surgery.  Being in law enforcement for over 20 years and an avid athlete, this was not acceptable to him.   After researching clinics that do stem cell treatments, he decided on my clinic. Jay received his injections a few months ago and is now free of pain and does not need knee surgery.

“What really separated them from other places I consulted with were the type of stem cells they used, and the knowledgeable staff.  I am happy to say that I have just begun running on the sand, and when I pivot my knee doesn’t hurt! No more inflammation. The procedure only took about 20 min and it didn’t hurt at all!” 

- Jay Jordan

Meet our second patient, Joe who is 92 years old.  He presented to our office earlier this year with severe low back pain in addition to osteoarthritis and pain in both knees.  Other doctors told Joe that there was nothing they could do for him and that he was not a candidate for stem cell therapy.   Joe could barely make it into the exam room without the help of his family and cane.  After a thorough medical examination, it was found that Joe had arthritis and inflammation in both knees and his sacroiliac joint, which connects the low back to the pelvis and tail bone.  Joe was injected with stem cells and within a few weeks he had NO pain and was walking without his cane.

“I chose OC Back Doctors because they seemed to have all their ducks in a row.  They gave me straight answers”
