Stem Cell Q&A: ​How Long Does Stem Cell Treatment Last?

Posted at 1:53 PM on Aug 30, 2018


Stem cell treatment for knee, back, shoulder, and joint pain can have varying results in terms of how long the pain relief lasts. Several studies using stem cells as a treatment for arthritis have shown lasting results anywhere from six months to several years. It’s difficult to say whether the patients continued to experience pain relief after the duration of the study.

These studies did, however, show a structural reversal of arthritic diseases from the point of injection. Studies have confirmed these findings by showing structural changes on serial MRI’s. From this evidence, it is reasonable to conclude that these positive results from stem cell injections cannot be replicated with any sort of treatment offered in orthopedics.

While we cannot make any promises about how long our stem cell treatments will last, the aforementioned clinical studies show the positive results stem cell treatment can have for arthritis sufferers.

Stem Cell Treatment Duration of Pain Relief

At Twin Cities Pain and Regenerative Medicine, we aim to reconcile any concerns you may have regarding our treatments. Patients often ask us how long a single treatment remains effective in reducing their arthritic pain. While we cannot give them a specific answer, we can provide them with materials and studies showing how stem cell injections can reverse the onset of arthritis.

We provide stem cell treatments for back, knee, shoulder, and joint pain to offer an alternative to those wanting to avoid risky surgical procedures. Stem cell injections take 90 minutes and generally do not require any sort of rehabilitation afterward. They are also relatively painless with far fewer side effects than orthopedic surgery.
