Any injection can cause mild soreness for up to 24 hours, and rarely an inflammatory flare-up will occur after a needle-stick or an injection. You are able to go back to every-day life and work after any of our procedures, but we do ask that you take it easy for a few days. Because it is more invasive, a advanced cellular therapy will likely cause an inflammatory flare-up for a few days after. You can usually still perform activities of daily living, yet these are likely to be painful. Most patients return to normal within 3-5 days. We typically recommend avoiding strong, sudden movements, especially against resistance for up to three weeks.
