Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are critical for living organisms for numerous reasons. When an embryo is between three and five days old it is called a blastocyst. The inner cells of this organism are responsible for specialized types of cells, tissues and organs including the lungs, heart, skin, eggs and sperm. Adult tissues including muscle, bone marrow and the brain have stem cell populations to replace any cells lost through disease, injury or simple wear and tear.
Stem cell therapy is the process of using a patient’s stem cells for the repair of injuries and damaged tissues. This is considered regenerative therapy and is an area of medicine showing considerable advancements. The primary uses of stem cell therapy includes treating tears in the ligaments and tendons, decreasing pain in the joints and increasing flexibility and motion.
The Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy offers patients numerous benefits including:
- Accelerating tissue repair
- Decreasing inflammation
- Stimulating the regeneration of tissues
- Preventing the continuation of cell death
- Stimulating the growth of new blood vessels
- Reintroducing the patients stem cells into areas of the body that have been damaged or injured to reduce inflammation and stimulate new blood flow to assist in the healing process.
The potential for stem cell therapy is based on strong clinical and scientific research combined with the most efficient treatment protocols. The treatment makes both safety and the latest research available to address a wide variety of chronic conditions. The majority of these conditions do not have any other treatment options available, are life threatening and in some cases extremely painful. Stem cell therapy offers individuals suffering from certain specific condition new hope.
Some of the chronic conditions most often treated with stem cell therapy include:
- (CAD) Coronary artery disease
- (CHF) Congestive heart failure
- Various autoimmune diseases
- Various neurological conditions
- Heart attacks
- Chronic wounds
- Orthopedic issues including injuries related to sports, osteoarthritis, etc
Stem cells provide a wide range off benefits and a lot of different options. This is because the therapy harvests and utilizes a biologic material taken directly from the body of the patient. This makes the risk factor extremely minimal, decreases recovery time and offers exceptional benefits. Stem cell therapy avoids the risks and complications so often associated with surgery because the procedure is minimally invasive and surgery is not required. The actual stem cells are taken from the bone marrow of the individual’s iliac crest in the pelvis.
For most injuries, the recovery period is much lengthier than the actual treatment. One of the best benefits of stem cells is the recovery period is minimal. The procedure also does not require general anesthesia. Many individuals have concerns about using general anesthesia which are eliminated. This therapy has absolutely no risk of rejection because the biologics were harvested directly from the patient.
