Spinal Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy is an innovative, minimally invasive solution for joint pain and other injuries. Injected into the affected area, these cells help speed up natural healing processes within the body to decrease inflammation, ease discomfort and increase mobility.
Stem cells possess the unique capacity to differentiate into many different types of cells and tissues within the human body, including blood cells, skin cells, nerve cells and those responsible for building new bone and muscle tissue – this process known as “differentiation.” This explains why stem cells hold such great promise in regenerative medicine applications.
Human embryonic stem cells begin to form during the early stages of pregnancy when an egg separates from its sperm and fertilizes a zygote. These totipotent (single-celled) cells can differentiate into any other cell type required by the body for survival.
Adult stem cells can be harvested from various places within the body, such as fat tissue and bone marrow. The most prevalent type is mesenchymal stem cells, which produce tendons, ligaments and other cells essential to building up muscle and bone structure.
For patients with spinal cord injuries, stem cell treatments can be highly effective. These therapies are minimally invasive and often provide pain relief and mobility within a few treatments.
Spinal stem cell treatment offers the primary advantage of relieving pain and swelling without the use of medications. The growth factors contained in these cells help speed up healing processes, allowing people to return to normal activities more quickly.
