The cells found within the body are complex and come in many different forms. Some are predetermined to be specific cells such as in the muscles, bones, and tissues. Stem cells, however, have the unique capability to transform into specific cells that the body needs because they are undifferentiated. This unique characteristic is why they are sought after in medical treatments for pain or injuries. Typical treatments for pain usually include medications or invasive procedures that can temporarily fix the issue. By introducing new stem cells into the body, research has shown that it can heal pain by treating the actual underlying cause of the pain that you may be experiencing.
Having chronic pain can lead to an incredible amount of interference with everyday activities. To treat pain, many people automatically reach for aspirin or maybe a prescribed medication. While this may provide some temporary relief, it could lead to a dependence on these medications without treating the actual cause of the pain. Stem cell have the ability to repair what is causing the discomfort without the use of pain typical stem cells can be used to treat many ailments such as:
- Hip Pain
- Knee Pain
- Neck Pain
- Meniscus tears
- Muscle and Tendon tears
Regenerative cellular treatments contain growth factors such as cytokines, mesenchymal stem cells, proteins, and peptides that are essential for healing damaged tissue. Mesenchymal stem cells in particular are used in many of our treatments because they are most effective for aiding the body in its healing process.
As we age, our bodies become less effective at generating new cells to repair damaged tissue or cartilage. You may have noticed how when you were younger it seemed you could recover from an injury quickly but as an adult, it takes a much longer time and was more difficult. This is because as we age, so do our own stem cells and our body’s become less efficient when it comes to healing itself.
Mesenchymal stem cells are strong, and efficient in aiding the body’s natural healing process. The cells used we use are found in Wharton’s jelly, which is found in the umbilical cords of new born cesarean babies. This is safely collected from consenting, carefully screened mothers and causes no harm to them or their child. As opposed to adult stem cells that are with us as we age, young and vigorous cells introduced into the body are more efficient at healing. There are little to no side effects with this because stem cells can transform into the type of cell in the area that is needed.
