Here at the Natural Health Center in Clifton, we want to ensure that our patients are well-informed about regenerative medicine, also known as stem cell therapy. There are many misconceptions and even some pieces of misinformation regarding stem cell treatment.  The FAQ below offers a starting point for clearing up some of these misconceptions. To get more in-depth information, come into our health center for an appointment.

Is Stem Cell Therapy Legal?

Yes, stem cell treatments are legal. Some people may have the misconception that it is illegal due to the fact that relatively few healthcare providers offer it. There have been attempts to make stem cell therapy illegal by certain groups, but the treatment is legal in the United States, regardless. Stem cell treatments using umbilical cord blood are also regulated by the Federal Drug Administration. 

What Sort of Conditions/Injuries Can Stem Cell Therapy Treat?

Stem cell therapy can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions. It may help patients recover more quickly from certain injuries, like torn or stressed soft tissue. Stem cell treatments can also be used to hasten recovery from burns. These are two of the most common applications for stem cell treatments, but there are many more. Speak with our healthcare professionals to learn more about stem cell treatment and whether it is right for your situation.

Where Can I Go for Stem Cell Therapy?

As previously mentioned, many healthcare providers, especially those that specialize in traditional medicine, do not offer stem cell treatments. Generally, you need to go to a specialized clinic to receive stem cell therapy. However, there are more and more stem cell treatment centers opening in the United States every year. Also, many chiropractic practices are starting to offer regenerative medicine treatments.
