According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), stem cells are being considered for a wide variety of medical procedures, ranging from cancer treatment to heart disease and cell-based therapies for tissue replacement. Stem cells—also referred to as “master” cells—are your body’s “internal repair system.” Stem cells are able to divide and mend or replenish other living cells [sources: Mayo Clinic; NIH]. These cells are the cellular foundation of the entire human body or the body’s building blocks. By studying these cells and how they develop, scientists are learning how our bodies grow and mature, and how diseases and other abnormalities form.

 

Stem Cell Therapy

There are many natural therapies out there that can help people heal from their injuries and ailments without surgery or narcotic pain medications. At Stem Cell Centers, we also seek natural methods of healing. The most natural way to heal is to use what the body already has and does to correct problems and injuries. We do this through our stem cell therapy treatments. Stem cells have been used by surgeons and doctors for more than 20 years. They are the cells where your organs and tissues first started, and amniotic fluid and embryos are primarily made of stem cells.

 

Every person has stem cells in their body right now. The International Society for Stem Cell Research describes stem cells as the “foundation cells” of our body. You are born with many stem cells and the number of those cells decrease as you age. When you are injured, your body sends stem cells to the site of your injury to help repair and replace damaged tissues and cells. This is where the magic happens. Those stem cells can turn into any other kind of cell in your body, thus allowing your body to heal muscles, tissues, bones and more. With stem cell therapy, we harvest stem cells and inject you with a high dose of them at the site of an injury. This speeds up your healing ability and is naturally anti-inflammatory, which helps with many joint problems.

Areas Treated with Stem Cells

Stem cell therapy and research holds promising potential for treating numerous diseases and conditions. Scientists are currently researching and applying stem cell science to conditions such as macular degeneration, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, heart disease and more. Every day, more advancements are made with stem cell therapy and treatments. So far, successful treatment has been documented for:

  • Knee and Shoulder Pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Meniscal Tears
  • Wrist, Elbow and Ankle Pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis and Foot Pain
  • Torn Rotator Cuff
  • Chronic Neck and Back Pain
  • Neuropathy Symptoms
  • Healing Sports-Related Injuries
  • Tendinitis

 

Stem cells can help repair injuries to cartilage, ligaments, tendons, bones or muscles. This type of therapy is especially beneficial for people with joint problems, as your body can literally grow new joint tissue. Once your joint is healed, then it’s healed.

Stem Cells Are Used in Many Treatments

Stem cells give hope to thousands of people with chronic medical conditions. This therapy has the potential to cure many diseases and conditions. Medical professionals have been using treatments to treat serious medical conditions from cancer to birth defects. Some examples include:

  • Macular Degeneration – This disease affects around 11 million people in the United States. Researchers are working on understanding how the retina helps vision work and how to fix rods and cones that make vision possible. They are actively using stem cells to help rods and cones integrate properly with nerve fibers to help people see.
  • Multiple Sclerosis – MS is a progressively degenerating disease that affects around 2.3 million between people across the globe. Researchers use stem cells to understand the development of brain tissue and what MS does to the brain and to the body. Tests and treatments are being performed to help people improve their MS symptoms and conditions.
  • Injury Healing – When you’re injured, your body sends special cells to the site of your injury. Research and treatments suggest that increasing the amount of stem cells in the area that is healing will help you heal faster. This is why we offer stem cell therapy injections for those who are recovering from injuries and need quicker healing.
  • Diabetes – 400 people worldwide have diabetes, which includes about 29 million Americans. Scientists use stem cells to discover how diabetes affects the body and how the body processes sugar. Skin cells from a person with diabetes can be reprogrammed to make different types of cells (such as induced pluripotent stem cells). These cells are then used to make any type of cell in the body.

 

The Potential of Stem Cell Therapy

The potential for healing and regeneration with regenerative stem cells is really exciting. These cells can replicate any type of tissue found in joints (other than nerve tissue) to provide whatever your joint needs. Studies have found that 100% of recipients who benefited from stem cell therapy were still pain-free 4 years later. Regenerative stem cell therapy gives your doctor the ability to treat and rehabilitate your pain and injuries in-office and without surgery.
