Stem cell therapy is a regenerative medicine procedure used to provide relief to a wide variety of conditions and diseases. Stem cells are ingenious because of their adaptable capabilities and extraordinary healing and regenerative properties. Stem cell therapy can help with orthopedic or pain management, ophthalmological conditions, cardiac or pulmonary conditions, neurological conditions, and auto-immune diseases, among many other conditions and disease that results in damaged tissue.
Everyone produces stem cells. Stem cells are the essential building blocks of life because of their function in growth, healing and regeneration. For example, whenever we are injured – whether it be a fracture or a cut – damaged tissue at the injury site signals the body to attract stem cells. Because stem cells are able to differentiate into any other type of cell within the human body, they are very adaptable in repairing and replacing damaged or torn tissue.
When it comes to stem cell therapy, the goal is to utilize the body’s own regenerative powers to increase the body’s healing ability. For a stem cell therapy, stem cells may either be donated or harvested from the patient. Once we concentrate the stem cells and growth factors, we can then introduce them to the patient’s body at the point of injury or damage. There are a few types of stem cells that can be used in treatment, you can read more about it here.
We always tell our patients that every case is unique – so although your condition or disease may be treatable with stem cell therapy, there may be other factors to consider. There are few limitations to being a stem cell therapy candidate, but that doesn’t mean it’s suitable for everyone. Call 1-844-ME-AGAIN to see if stem cell therapy is for you.
