We wanted to take a moment to share the beginnings of the amazing journey of one of our patients. Ruben came to see us because he was experiencing chronic arthritic and systemic pain throughout his body, as well as symptoms pertaining to his Lupus diagnosis. He was experiencing chronic pain in his hips, ankles, back, hands, elbows, and knees. After meeting with Ruben, we decided that stem cell therapy would be the best option to reduce his pain.
The first stem cell therapy was administered into both of his knees (1 mL per knee), and he was also given a 2 mL IV infusions of stem cells. His knees were the joints that were most painful to Ruben and he was hoping that the treatment would reduce the popping, cracking, and pain he was regularly experiencing. The IV stem cells were administered to help treat his systemic symptoms associated with inflammation and his autoimmune disease. Here is a video of Ruben’s first procedure:
Within one week of his first treatment, Ruben reported an increase in energy, feeling more alert, decreased brain fog, decreased cracking of his knees, and decrease in overall pain. He also reported that his co-workers were making comments that he was moving better and looked like he was in less pain. He was so excited and looking forward to the next stem cell procedure. We proceeded with the second round of stem cell therapy, this time administered into his fingers and wrists. Take a look at the video below of Ruben’s follow-up after his first visit!
Ruben returned the following week and reported an 80% overall improvement since the bilateral knee and IV stem cell injections. He also reports 50-60% improvement in his hands, wrists, and fingers within a week of receiving the stem cell therapy. He reported being able to carry bags and lift boxes with more ease, which is very important for him as this is a part of his job. He also reported being able to work more hours than he had been working prior to receiving stem cell treatment. At his 3rd appointment, Ruben received 1 mL of stem cells into each hip. Please take a moment to watch Ruben’s video below!
We cannot wait to follow-up with Ruben at his one month follow-up to hear all about how he’s doing! He wanted to share his story because he knows there are many people with stories and symptoms like his, and he hopes that sharing his progress will help others decide to move forward with their own journey of healing through stem cell therapy. Ruben’s story is incredible and we are so excited to be a part of improving his quality of life.
