How Often Will I Need to Receive Stem Cell Injections?

Stem cell injections are a type of regenerative treatment that helps relieve pain, stiffness, and inflammation by stimulating the body’s natural repair process. For various injuries and chronic conditions, stem cell injections can provide long-lasting relief without the need for surgery. 

Stem Cell Injection Frequency

Many patients inquire about the number of stem cell injections required to achieve relief. In truth, the number of injections needed can vary depending on the specific patient and their injury. For example, if a patient undergoes stem cell injection treatment for a sports injury, only one or two injections may be needed. The stem cells will help heal the injured tissue and unless the tissue is re-injured, the pain shouldn’t return.

For patients with chronic conditions, the number of needed stem cell injections may vary. Patients with osteoarthritis, for example, may need periodic stem cell injections for continued relief from joint pain and stiffness. The results of stem cell injections, however, can last for many years. This makes stem cell injections an excellent alternative to surgery for many patients who want to avoid the complications of invasive methods.
