West coast US and you
I have read a lot about clinical studies and would like more info from patient experience.
so, r u a computer.. you seem to be involved in many discussions. providing links to the articles would be most helpful 😄
I'm sorry but one of the rules of this forum is no links posted. Usually due to patient care has their own links.
You can do a search on this forum for just about anything.
no I'm not a computer. Mabe a bit curious.
It's against the forums rules to post links.
you can do a search on this forum for just about anything. The patient Heath forum to the right of the page.
no I'm no a computer. But very curious.
I am hoping to receive more info on PRP on our site. I've read a paper advertising PRP at a clinic in Potomac, MD last year. I didn't have time to follow up and now I will be traveling. I will continue looking into it and would like any info from all our people on the site. Thanks. Take care and be healthy. Exercise and proper diet mean a great deal to us at any age.
I would also like to hear anyone's experiences of this.
Wouldnt hurt to see if there is heeling from this treatment. I have read good thing from this process. So may just get out there and do it. It takes several treatments and months before results .
Nayone been treated in the US with umbilical stem cell therapy?
Yes, my Orthopedic surgeon gave me a PRP injection be cause I was having so much pain in my thighs. He had a centrifuge in one of his rooms and the way it works is they take some of your blood, run it through the centrifuge and remove all the platelets and inject them into wherever
You hurt. I works great. Really got rid of the pain in that thigh.
My problem was that he stopped taking my insurance plus I paid $100 co-pay. I was supposed to have three injections but only
Had one because I couldn't afford any more
They really do wonders for pain.
Thank you Susan for the info. On storm cell therapy.
hey that's great how quickly it helped the pain. That sounds like a very important clue to helping pain.
Im gonna check with my orthopedic surgeon.
beats pain meds I'm all 4 it. The price is steep for 1 shot. Almost as spendy as injection fillers in the face by plastic surgeons.
I think there here is a lot of great thing coming down the pip for stem cell therapy too!
It's called PRP
Thanks for the info susan I've been thinking about having that
