Palmetto Stem Cell Clinic Regenerative Recovery

We are committed to pioneering regenerative therapy, as we believe that it offers patients a better chance to enjoy joint healing and rejuvenation. Current, conventional treatments for degenerative joint conditions still mainly rely on reducing the severity of symptoms through the use of anti-inflammatory medicines and painkillers. These treatment options don’t actually heal; they simply have an effect on pain management. We believe that the cells extracted from umbilical cords offer a complex combination of growth factors, proteins and stem cells which provide a highly active regenerative mixture. Because it prompts the body to heal itself, the regeneration process is entirely natural: performed by your body for the benefit of your body! If you or someone you care about is suffering from degenerative joint pain, or have been told you need steroid injections or even surgery, why not get in touch with the caring physicians at the Preferred STEM CELL clinic in the Palmetto State and find out more about regenerative medicine – what We believe to be a large part of the future of yours and others rehabilitative medical care!
