GOOD VIBRATIONS
Over the past decade, stem cell therapy has become an emerging option for treating chronic joint pain. These special cells possess the ability to multiply and self renew, therefore healing any injured tissues. “When it comes to pain management, it’s a highly effective option for patients who don’t want to go the surgical route,” explained Bima Baje of Colts Neck Stem Cells, the gold standard in stem cell and exosome therapy in the tri state area. Under the supervision of general surgeon and regenerative medicine expert, Dr. Joanna De Leo, treatments use the same source of stem cells as the Federal Government in 157 Veterans Administration hospitals. “Our stem cell treatments require absolutely no down time, and patients can start to see improvements in four to six weeks,” Bima said. coltsneckstemcells.com
