Studies have shown that the amniotic fluid used in fluid flow regenerative medicine therapy in Pennsylvania, is naturally regenerative and can reduce inflammation and scars.
Amniotic fluid is the fluid surrounding a foetus in pregnancy. It also contains nutrients, hormones, and antibodies. During most pregnancies, this fluid is thrown away after birth. Now, however, consenting mothers of caesarean section babies can donate this fluid because of its amazing regenerative process. It is important to point out that these cells come from the amniotic sac and are not part of the embryo.

How many treatments does it take?
Each person’s response to Fluid Flow varies. One injection to one body area is usually performed. Repeat treatments can be considered in appropriate situations. Individual variation due to severity of injury, area, age, and other factors affect response time.
Fluid Flow after care
A patient is generally sore for up to one week and sometimes longer after fluid flow regenerative medicine therapy in Pennsylvania. The underlying physiology of Fluid Flow is to engage and encourage one’s own healing response. This healing response is the basis for increased soreness. Therefore, avoid interventions that interfere with the “natural healing process”. Typical needle soreness is possible and massage therapy and moist heat applied to the area can be helpful. Gentle manipulation techniques and other modalities that improve circulation and assist the healing from Fluid Flow include acupuncture, Rolfing, myofascial release, activator gun treatments, electrical stimulation, magnets, infrared heat, and ultrasound. All these activities may improve circulation to the treated area.
Important After-Care Instructions
- Avoid anti-inflammatory medications.
- Do not apply ice or cold.
- Reduce activity, protect and rest treated area. For example, after knee treatment do not exercise with weight bearing activities such as walking or running. Allow healing and repair to occur naturally sometimes up to 6-8 weeks.
- Cardio-vascular exercise is encouraged during the healing phase.
- Continue usual medications.
- Eat healthy.
- Plan ahead for relative protection of the treated area.
- Some individuals may benefit from concurrent therapy.
Learn About Regenerative Medicine
If you are suffering from body pains, you may not need addictive drugs or invasive surgery. Regenerative therapies go way beyond typical cortisone shots. While they do regulate inflammation, regenerative treatments activate cellular activities that promote healing of injury, and help relieve the pain in the long run.
