Imagine a longtime patient coming into your office complaining of chronic knee or back pain. You are not surprised, given the fact that you have been treating this patient for years. Yet you are concerned that this person you have worked so hard with to avoid surgery may be fast approaching that day when going under the knife seems like the only remaining option.
If this scenario sounds familiar to you, you are not alone. Doctors all over the country struggle with the desire to avoid surgery while still helping patients dealing with chronic pain find ways to feel better. We are here to let you know that there may be another option. You might be able to reduce the number of surgeries you recommend to patients simply by undergoing stem cell training at Apex Biologix.
Stem cell therapy for chronic pain is growing more widely accepted as more doctors are embracing it and achieving successful results. Sports medicine doctors are using it to treat athletes; geriatric specialists are using it to help their older patients deal with knee and back problems; even GPs are finding ways to use stem cell therapy to relieve chronic pain.
The Basics of Stem Cell Therapy
As a doctor, you already understand that the human body possesses a tremendous ability to heal itself. Hopefully, you also agree that medicine should enhance the body’s self-healing properties rather than working against them. That’s exactly what stem cell therapy does.
In a chronic pain scenario, stem cells are obtained from the patient’s fat tissue or bone marrow before being concentrated in a specialized centrifuge. The resulting material is directly injected into the affected area with the goal of promoting natural healing.
Chronic pain is often the result of damaged joint tissue. When stem cell therapy proves effective for patients, it is because the injected stem cells are encouraging the body to heal the damage by regenerating healthy tissue. In light of that, stem cell therapy is part of a much broader arena of regenerative medicine.
Stem Cell Training for Your Patients
The title of this post implies the goal of reducing surgeries by recommending stem cell therapies to patients instead. In order to do that, you have to learn how to utilize stem cell procedures in the best possible way. Make no mistake about it; not all stem cell procedures are equal. There are better ways to do things, and those better ways are what we teach at Apex Biologix. Our stem cell training includes time-tested processing techniques for maximizing patient outcomes.
In our training programs, doctors learn the most effective methods for extracting stem cell material and processing it. Furthermore, our clients train with some of the best physicians already involved in regenerative medicine. Each of our trainers is a regenerative medicine specialist more than capable of providing instruction and demonstrable hands-on training.
