FAQs


What medications or treatments can NOT be given at the same time as regenerative stem cells?

Steroids - Steroid therapy in general has been shown to alter the harvest of cells collected for regenerative therapy as well as diminishing the efficacy of regenerative stem cell therapy once it has been initiated. Therefore, Vet-Stem strongly advises that if possible, all therapeutic levels of steroids be eliminated prior to tissue collection and the use of steroids should be avoided for a minimum of 45 days post-injection.

Shockwave Therapy - Vet-Stem does not recommend using shockwave following stem cell therapy for at least 60 days because regenerative stem cells require time to reorganize and adhere. Using shockwave prior to regenerative stem cell therapy may increase the signaling process and potentially benefit the overall healing process.

Therapeutic Ultrasound - Vet-Stem does not recommend therapeutic ultrasound for 45 days after implantation, but it may be used before treatment.

Tens Unit - Vet-Stem does not recommend using a tens unit for 45 days after implantation, but it may be used before treatment.
