Stem cells work for up to a year and healing begins right away but it is a long process. Some patients with very bad OA have almost immediate relief since they have a very high level of pain to begin with, it varies a lot patient to patient and there are several different variations of the treatment.
Probably will also get her an unloading brace for tennis in the future and the best chance for healing over the next several weeks and months ahead.
