Stem Cell Therapy in Charlotte, NC

Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy generates healthy cells to replace or reverse damaged and diseased cells without the invasiveness of joint replacement surgery. That means a quicker recovery time for you. At Dynamic Health, you are the source — the stem cells used in your treatment plan come from your own body. We perform this procedure with state-of-the-art-processing equipment. You’ll find no additives or alternatives here.

Benefits of Growth Factor Therapy

Growth factor therapy includes both platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments and amniotic tissue treatments. Each of these same-day options uses injections to encourage cell growth and the body’s natural regenerative processes.This is the least invasive option and typically yields the fasts response from your body.

FAQ


Learn the answers to common questions about Stem Cell Therapy and Growth Factor Therapy — plus some ideas for questions you may want to ask your doctor prior to treatment. We want our patients to feel confident and knowledgeable as they begin recovery at Dynamic Health.

We have been providing Stem Cell and Growth Factor Therapy since 2016. We were one of the first clinics in the Charlotte region to provide these life-changing medical treatments for acute and chronic pain. Our team has performed more Stem Cell and Growth Factor treatments than anyone else in the southeast. More recently, we added an amniotic tissue product in order to expand the number of people we can help. Some patients prefer the ease and recovery time associated with a non-autologous option.
For one thing, experience. We use an individualized approach to each patient, choosing the best regenerative treatment based on their overall health and the severity of their underlying condition.
Most patients (80%) have a positive response. Like everything else in medicine, Stem Cells or Growth Factors may not help everyone. Response to regenerative therapy depends on the underlying health of the patient, their baseline level of activity, their weight, and the severity of the underlying condition.

Patients with very mild arthritis who are active usually respond better than someone with so-called ‘bone on bone’ arthritis, but in our experience, even patients with advanced degrees of arthritis can benefit from regenerative therapy. In many cases, regenerative therapy has been able to delay joint replacement surgery. Our hope is that if people receive this treatment early on in the course of their arthritis, they may even be able to prevent joint replacement entirely.

We have seen many patients who were told by other clinics that they were ‘bone on bone’ in an effort to scare them into having surgery performed ‘right away’ when in fact their arthritis was not that severe and they responded very well to treatment.

This is one of the most important questions you must ask any provider who wishes to treat you with Stem Cells. First, you should understand what Stem Cells are. They are undifferentiated cells that divide and specialize over time, taking on specific functions. At Dynamic Health we use your Stem Cells from your own body. There are Stem Cells in every single tissue in our bodies, but in some tissues, they are more plentiful. For example, adipose tissue (fat) and bone marrow are the two main sources of active, viable Stem Cells and those are the two main sources that we use.

By using your own body as the source of Stem Cells, you are basically helping your body heal itself. And by using your own Stem Cells, there is no risk of bloodborne infections like hepatitis, HIV, Zika, and many others.

There are two major reasons. First, this is an off-the-shelf product which makes it easy to use. All of these products are obtained from materials donated after normal, live births. The tissues are processed, screened for infectious diseases, and then freeze-dried and placed into bottles and shipped all over the country. Secondly, Growth Factor Therapy is also easier for patients than platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments because it doesn’t require blood draws and has a quicker recovery time.
We used to think that the injected Stem Cells actually turn into new cartilage. Recent research has shown that something slightly different is happening. The Stem Cells that are re-introduced serve as chemical messengers. These Stem Cell messengers send signals to the dormant Stem Cells that are already living inside your damaged tissues. These special signals tell the dormant Stem Cells to ‘wake up’ and begin to grow and repair the local tissue damage that has been caused by wear and tear. It’s your own body healing itself. We’re giving it a ‘boost’ that it needs but can’t get on its own to get the process started.
Growth Factory Therapy helps your body heal by acting as a catalyst to stimulate your body’s natural regenerative healing process along with decreasing inflammation and decreasing pain.
Stem Cell and Growth Factor Therapy are administered via an injection. Any time you penetrate the skin, there is a small risk of infection. Our procedures are performed using strict aseptic techniques, so infection is rare, occurring in only about 1 of every 1000 patients. Infection risks are increased by not following aftercare and instructions properly.

Other possible complications include allergic reactions to local anesthetic and bleeding, and both of these are extremely rare. We can even do these procedures in patients who are on blood thinners, provided that they can safely stop the blood thinner for several days beforehand (Never stop your blood thinning medication unless cleared by your doctor to do so).

The number of treatments required depends on the severity of your underlying condition. Most patients can get by with one treatment but patients with more severe degrees of arthritis may need a ‘booster’ treatment after several months.
Studies have shown that patients can expect one to two years of pain relief, but in our experience, we have had many patients that have gone well past 2 years and are continuing to do well. No arthritis therapy is permanent because there is no way to completely stop the disease of arthritis. Even artificial knee joints last on average 15 years before wearing out. Relief depends on the severity of the patient’s arthritis. With regular regenerative therapy, our hope is to prevent patients from having to resort to joint replacement surgery or at least delay it as long as possible.
There is no permanent cure for arthritis. Stem cell therapy helps to regenerate tissues damaged by arthritis, but the disease process of arthritis is still ongoing due to the effects of time, gravity, and constant use.

The best way to try to prevent ongoing joint damage is to receive regenerative therapy on a regular basis. Over time, as your body’s response from the treatment decreases, that is when you should consider getting a “boost” which can build on the results of the previous therapy. Some patients actually get better results with the second treatment than they got with the first due to the cumulative response from your body.
Remember the goal is to try to prevent (or in extreme cases, at least delay) the need for joint replacement surgery. Regenerative therapy offers your body the renewed ability to get and stay active. Remember, “a body in motion stays in motion.” If you suffer from degenerative arthritis, it is important to know that there is no other treatment available that has the potential to do this.

As long as providers use autologous cells (cells that come from the patient themselves) for regenerative therapy, the FDA accepts these procedures as complying with current standards of care. The equipment that we use to process your Stem Cells is FDA cleared for that use.

The FDA has released statements that they will make a decision for amniotic and umbilical chord blood/tissue products by 2020. Until that time, they are continuing to perform research as to their stance.

Insurance companies have not yet instituted coverage for Stem Cell or Growth Factor treatments, and it will most likely be several years before this happens. Most patients with arthritis cannot wait that long for treatment. They need help now. While the Stem Cell or Growth Factor treatments themselves may not be covered, the joint rehabilitation therapy that is combined with these treatments is frequently covered by insurance.
Testimonials

“I had been suffering for 4-5 years with the shoulder pain, and I dealt with constant sharp pain. I tried physical therapy, but the effects were only short term. The care I received at Dynamic Health was fantastic, and the results truly speak for themselves. After my PRP treatment to my shoulder I started to experience relief in just 7-10 days…I would highly recommend Dynamic Health to anyone suffering with any sort of pain!”*
