Introduction to Umbilical Cord Tissue Products
What Are Umbilical Cord Tissue Products?
Remember how quickly you would heal when you were younger and had an injury like a sprained ankle or cut? That’s because your body would recruit your plentiful natural healing to come and reduce the swelling and repair the damage. As you’ve gotten older and sustained an injury, you may have noticed it takes significantly longer to heal. That’s because as we get older our bodies produce drastically less natural healing ability. However, with scientific advances we now have more options for helping you.
One common source of help is from donated umbilical cord tissue. Umbilical cord tissue contains a mixed population of great healing properties.
Here at Bio-Chk, we utilize umbilical cord tissue product that may help with pain.
Patients are often surprised to learn how easy the process is for umbilical cord tissue products. First, most patients attend a free educational seminar. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the details. From there, if you think this might be the right treatment for you, you can schedule a consultation with a doctor.
At your consultation, your doctor will explore your medical history and your particular problem. You’ll discuss your treatment of this problem in the past and whether this option is right for you. If you’re a good fit, a nurse practitioner or medical doctor will proceed with the actual procedure.
It’s normal to be worried about undergoing a new procedure, especially one which isn’t as widely known to the public. The actual procedure is quick! A medical professional will administer a quick injection to each of the affected areas, and from there you will wait in the office for another 5 to 10 minutes. Side effects are rare, but this is a good time to ask any questions about the next few weeks.
Within a few minutes of the actual injections, you’re ready to drive home! You don’t need anyone to accompany you to and from your procedure, and you will have no downtime after the procedure.
What Happens After My Shot?
You might not notice a difference in the affected area for four to six weeks. That’s because unlike medication, you need time for the body to rebuild the problem area. This process takes time, but it’s a more lasting solution than the typical joint pain shots. Four weeks after your procedure, you’ll speak with bioChK for a follow-up to monitor any changes or progress. The goal is for you to be feeling your best in no time!
