ARE THERE STUDIES THAT SUPPORT THE VIABILITY OF GROWTH FACTOR INJECTIONS?
Stem cell “growth factor” injections have been studied for years and discussed in countless medical journals. Some studies show that these types of injections are often superior to platelet-rich plasma (PRP), as well as treatments that use growth factors that are derived from a person’s own fat or bone marrow.
ARE THERE ANY LONG-TERM SIDE EFFECTS?
To date, there have been no reports of long-term side effects or adverse reactions to treatment with amniotic fluid-derived growth factors.
HOW EFFECTIVE ARE GROWTH FACTOR INJECTIONS?
The effectiveness of treatment does vary from patient to patient. Many notice a marked improvement in their pain within days after injection, with most patients experiencing benefit within 3-4 weeks of treatment.
HOW LONG CAN I EXPECT THE BENEFITS OF TREATMENT TO LAST?
It is not uncommon for patients to experience the benefits of treatment for as long as 6-12 months or more. Injections can be repeated as necessary.
HOW SOON AFTER TREATMENT WILL I BEGIN TO EXPERIENCE THE BENEFITS OF GROWTH FACTOR INJECTIONS?
Depending on the condition being treated, some patients may experience some degree of pain relief within hours of treatment.
