Pain Management Q & A
What is stem cell therapy?
If you hurt yourself, your body immediately deploys stem cells to begin repairing the damage. Stem cells are found all throughout your body and have the unique ability to morph into any type of cell your body needs. Remarkably, they replace damaged or diseased cells.
During stem cell therapy, Dr. Moammar takes advantage of your body’s own ability and desire to heal. He extracts stem cells from your body, and uses X-rays and ultrasounds to guide him as he carefully places them exactly where you need them. After they’re transferred, stem cells go to work to repair and regenerate your damaged cells.
What conditions does stem cell therapy treat?
Wherever you have pain, dysfunction, or need cell regeneration, stem cell therapy can help. Key issues for treatment are:
- Back pain
- Achilles’ tendon pain
- Rotator cuff repair
- Tennis elbow
- Degenerative arthritis
- Tendon tears
- Hair regrowth
Talk to Dr. Moammar about your specific areas of pain to see if stem cell therapy is right for you.
What is PRP?
One of the four components of your blood is platelets. They’re responsible for clotting, but they also contain growth factors that aid in the healing process and hair regeneration.
Dr. Moammar taps into the healing nature of your platelets by extracting blood from your body, singling out the platelets in a centrifuge, and then re-injecting them into areas where you need healing, pain relief, or hair restoration.
What conditions does PRP therapy treat?
PRP is useful for:
- Muscle tears
- Hair restoration
- Rotator cuff tears
- Skin rejuvenation
PRP is especially useful for improving conditions that conventional medicine might treat with surgery or more invasive strategies.
Are PRP injections safe?
Because Dr. Moammar uses your own blood and platelets, PRP injections are natural and have minimal risk of causing problems. You may be sore and have some redness at the injection site for a day or two after treatment, but it’s mild and goes away on its own.
