Stem cells reside in all of us and serve as repairmen for our bodies. The number of stem cells in our bodies can be affected by our advancing age. At times, (injuries or aging) our bodies need more of these critical repair cells than they have access to. Stem cell therapies work to infuse injury sites and weak joints with the extra stem cells they need to function correctly. Stem cell treatments and research are still evolving. However, today there are two main categories of treatment: stem cell transplants and stem cell injections.
Transplants involve drawing stem cells from bone marrow, or another blood-based source and then implanting them in the body. This treatment process helps battle certain cancers, blood disorders and other conditions. Adult stem cells are collected on a routine basis in many parts of the world. These stem cells can come from your body, a donor’s body, or umbilical cord blood extractions. Stem cell transplants can be used to treat major burn injuries to replace damaged skin and to help heal chronic wounds. New healthy cells can also be grown to treat eye diseases as well as replace dysfunctional tissues. The primary goal of stem cell therapy is to replace unhealthy cells with healthy ones to support proper cell functioning. Stem cell transplants are currently being researched for heart disease, cerebral palsy, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, diabetes and spinal cord injury.
Stem cell therapy injections deliver stem cells into your body. For clarification, this type of stem cell comes from the amniotic sac – not an embryo. While ethical debates have arisen about embryonic stem cell therapy, most everyone agrees that the use of non-embryonic stem cells causes no ethical or moral questions. Similar to cortisone and steroid shots, stem-cell injections have anti-inflammatory properties. However, these injections offer far more benefits than standard injection therapies. While cortisone and other drugs only provide temporary pain relief, stem cells actually restore degenerated tissue AND eliminate pain. The growth factors replace damaged cells in your body. Inflammation is treated simultaneously during treatment because the injections contain hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid lubricates joints and tendons, easing pain and helping restore mobility.
Stem cells can turn into whatever your joint needs for injury repair. Stem cells can help repair cartilage, ligament, tendon, bone or muscle. Your body literally grows new joints tissue. Once your joint is healed, it is healed. The oldest research to date shows that 100% of recipients who benefited from stem cell therapy were still pain-free 4 years later. Stem cell therapy gives your doctor the ability to treat and rehabilitate your pain and injuries without drugs or surgery in-office. The added convenience of having treatment in-office, and not at an offsite location, guarantees their ability to oversee your care and treatment throughout the process. Patients also avoid hospital-related costs and the long recovery periods with in-office treatment.
Current treatments for the painful and debilitating effects of arthritis rely on early intervention with synthetic drugs, either singly or in combination. This pharmaceutical approach is still not effective for some 20% to 40% of those suffering from arthritis. According to the National Institute of Health, Stem cell therapy provides a promising alternative to surgery by promoting safe and natural healing. Stem cell therapy provides a non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical approach to your hand and wrist injuries and chronic arthritic pain. The less invasive approach stem cell therapy offers attracts thousands each year.
The stem cell therapy procedure is simple and takes just 15 minutes with pain relief in 24-48 hours. The therapy can be performed right in your doctor’s office and provides pain relief without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, hospital stays or prolonged recovery. There is zero recovery time after stem cell therapy. Most experience complete joint restoration of ligaments, tendons and cartilage in 28 days. Stem cell therapy is very safe and effective. The injections have been used over 100,000 times in the United States with no reported adverse side effects. Stem cell injections have a 100% safety record in Europe with 100,000’s of patients.
