The new stem cell injection study is enrolling now for those with back or neck pain, hip, knee, shoulder or sacroiliac joint pain.
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
The new Arizona Pain Stem Cell Institute is beginning a research project involving stem cell injections. The study will evaluate the effectiveness of a regenerative medicine product clinically for back and neck pain along with pain in the shoulder, knee, hip and sacroiliac joint. Those interested should call (602) 507-6550.
One of the main benefits of the study is that it is industry subsidized, therefore, the cost of the procedures is 40% less than the typical fees charged for the injections. The stem cell injection study is a non-randomized, prospective study looking at the effectiveness of stem cell injections into spinal joints for back and neck pain along with shoulder, hip, knee and the sacroiliac joints.
The benefit of a non-randomized study is that all participants will receive the stem cell product. The product is an amniotic derived stem cell rich substance that also has a high concentrate of hyaluronic acid and growth factors. It is hypothesized that the stem cell portion of the injection will help repair and regenerate damaged tissue, but the hyaluronic acid and the growth factors may contribute to pain relief and tissue repair as well. Anecdotal reports of the product have shown beneficial results to date with the regenerative medicine product.
The follow-up timeframe for the study is six months and patients must be over the age of 18 to qualify. All of the patient visits and procedures are being performed at the Scottsdale pain clinic location of Arizona Pain. The procedures are performed by Board Certified and Award Winning pain management doctors at the center. The doctors are compassionate, and along with the staff treat patients with the utmost respect and provide modern options for relief. Arizona Pain continuously strives to provide the most cutting edge options to patients, and this new study offers a revolutionary option.
For those patients traveling from out of state, Arizona Pain can assist with travel arrangements which include reduced fees on lodging and land transportation to and from the airport.
The amniotic derived injection material is obtained from consenting donors and processed at an FDA regulated lab. The material is cryogenically frozen until the time of injection. Over 10,000 uses of the product have taken place in the US with no adverse events reported to date.
