What To Do After PRP Injection

If you’re dealing with the effects and damage caused by an injury or disease, you are probably looking forward to what the future of regenerative medicine may bring because you want to explore all your treatment and recovery options. The list of options might also include mesenchymal stem cell therapy.

After all, why not make the most of what modern regenerative medicine has to offer and take advantage of the latest development of regenerative medicine now?

But if and when you undergo mesenchymal stem cell therapy, what can you expect to happen? How demanding is the post-recovery process? Most importantly, how soon can you expect to see results?

What can I expect after stem cell injection?


Despite its minimally invasive nature, you might still find stem cell therapy intimidating, especially if you don’t quite understand how it works. Luckily, stem cell therapy is a simple and straightforward procedure.

Most patients report feeling minor pain and discomfort during stem cell injection procedure, as if it were just a regular shot.  

It will likely take a few weeks before you start noticing results and feeling pain relief. From that point on, you may experience ongoing improvement of your condition, including:

  • Decrease in inflammation,
  • Pain relief,
  • Better mobility,
  • Enhanced functionality.

You can also expect your doctor to recommend further appointments to repeat treatment so as to ensure the optimal outcome and maximum benefits. Your treatment will likely incorporate more than stem cell treatment as it will be designed to cater to your specific medical needs.

How long does stem cell therapy take?

The whole procedure could be over within 30 minutes. The patients are free to leave the doctor’s office after completion. They may experience minor discomfort for a few hours and mild soreness at the injection site up to a week after the procedure.

How long does it take to recover from stem cell therapy?

The recovery period of stem cell therapy is brief, seeing how it is usually performed as an outpatient procedure. Still, some restrictions do apply. Patients who undergo stem cell therapy are instructed to:

  • Avoid strenuous physical activity;
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory medication.

As with any other type of treatment, patients should consult their physician if they have any other concerns, doubts or questions.
