If you’ve recently sustained an injury, you may now be thinking about your road to recovery. For some patients, their healing time may be short, while others have weeks and months ahead of them. However, stem cell therapy can help accelerate your healing time, as stem cells are shown to take a major role in how your body heals. When you’re injured, these special cells follow your blood platelets to the site of damage and transform into the exact type of cell your body needs to rebuild itself. Stem cell therapy has found success in treating injuries and conditions such as knee pain, osteoarthritis, meniscal tears, shoulder pain, tendonitis, foot pain, plantar fasciitis and more. Find out what role stem cells play in healing from an injury and how stem cell therapy can help accelerate your healing even more!
Nobody likes to sustain an injury, especially one that is large. Have you noticed that children tend to heal quicker from injuries than adults do, especially senior citizens? There is a reason for this. When you are injured, your body does a few things at once. It recognizes the area that you’ve been injured in and your blood pumps blood platelets to the site of injury. Your body also does something that you don’t think about: it begins the process of healing immediately. It does that healing through stem cells.
When you have an injury, blood platelets help clot the wound, eventually turning into a scab. However, your body also sends stem cells to the site of injury as well. You are born with countless stem cells that lie dormant in your body until they are needed for healing and repair. When you’re injured, those stem cells get released and follow blood platelets to where they are clotting a wound. Your stem cells then are able to transform into the type of cell needed to repair your skin, muscles, organs, etc.
Your body naturally goes through this healing process with the help of stem cells all the time. If you have a chronic condition or disease such as arthritis, you are using stem cells every day to try to repair damage in your joints. They also help replace damaged or old tissues and cells in your body. Stem cells are not like any other cell, as no other cell is able to transform into another type of cell. This is why stem cells are so amazing. Their ability to change into other cell types allows your body to heal itself wherever it is hurt. The more stem cells you have, the greater your ability to heal from injury.
However, as you age, the amount of stem cells you have in your body diminishes. That is why healing takes longer the older you get. That is also why scientists have developed stem cell therapy. This is a therapy where we provide you with anti-inflammatory stem cell injections that go right into the site of your injury. You don’t have to have a physical wound to receive these injections either. Patients can receive stem cell therapy injections for arthritis pain and in other areas of the body that hurt. These injections can help you heal faster from your injuries and are naturally anti-inflammatory in nature.
For some people, wounds don’t heal. This is quite common with patients that have diabetes, where ulcers can open up and never seem to heal. Diabetes patients generally have poor circulation and high blood sugar levels. Both of these problems lead to fewer white blood cells that fight infection. Decreased circulation also leads to fewer nutrients and oxygen reaching wounds and tissues, so wounds heal very slowly or not at all. What are stem cells role in people who have wounds that don’t heal?
Reports state that the FDA has now approved the use of stem cells to help people heal that have non-healing wounds. Stem cells role has been to help patients heal from cuts, large wounds, arthritis pain and more. They have also been used for skin tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. There aren’t many treatments for patients that have wounds that don’t heal, but stem cells can help jump-start that healing.
Do you suffer from chronic pain or aches throughout your day? Do you have arthritis, joint problems, diabetes and other chronic conditions?
