The medical community has been using stem cell therapy for over two decades in serious operations to accelerate the healing process in organs that have been badly torn or damaged. Stem cells have been extensively researched and found to address certain diseases with exceptional healing and restoration; they are very adaptable to the surrounding tissue, which makes them incredibly useful in healing. Some of the most common diseases where stem cell therapy has been proven successful are ophthalmological conditions, kidney disease, neurological and cardiac conditions, auto-immune diseases and tissue that has been caused by an injury.
Stem cells are often used in the sports field for players who were injured while playing in games, including such areas as ACL tears, damaged muscle, bone, tendon, and nerve tissue, and joint damage. The process is relatively simple, healing begins immediately, and there is no downtime required either before or after the injection.
What Are Stem Cells and How Are They Used?
Stem cells are essential building blocks of the human body. They are uncoded cells, which means they do not have a DNA or aren’t differentiated as a specific type of cells such as muscle, bone or tendon. When they are injected into an area, they replicate the type of cell already there, multiplying at an incredible rate to repair and restore. Their job is to allow the body to heal itself, which is what they were designed to do.
The function of stem cells is to promote regeneration, healing, and growth at the cellular level, which is healing at the foundational level. This allows the process to be consistent and thorough because the stem cells are doing exactly what they were designed to do. In as few as 14 days, reduction in pain and other improvements may begin to be experienced, and research shows that the entire multiplication process continues for up to eight months.
Every individual and every disease or injury is unique, so our doctor will want to discuss with you the variables associated with recovery. If you feel that stem cell therapy may be the answer for you, simply contact our office today to schedule a consultation session with an experienced and caring doctor.
