Want to avoid surgery and rebuild your joint or bone injury to full capacity quickly? Stem cell regenerative therapy could be the treatment to help you rebuild and repair torn ligaments or joint pain. So, what exactly are stem cells and how do they work?
What are stem cells?
Stem cells are biological cells that are undifferentiated. This means that they have no specific or identified purpose within the body. However, this is what makes stem cells so amazing. They can differentiate to almost any cell type found in the human body. In adult humans, stem cells act as the repair system for all of the bodies tissue functions. This means that stem cells natural purpose in adults is to repair the body. This is also the reason they are so effective at repairing damaged ligaments, joints and bone.
While there are many types of stem cells, the cells used primarily in regeneration methods are amniotic stem cells, derived from amniotic fluid or the amniotic sac. This means that the extraction process never harms or jeopardizes the fetus in any way. Even the Vatican recently called amniotic stem cells, “the future of medicine”.
Stem cells have been approved to treat many conditions, including:
- Repair injuries
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Spinal cord repair
- Restore hearing
- Restore vision
Research continues on how stem cells can restore and repair a host of other diseases, injuries or conditions.
How do stem cells work?
Once the source of pain or injury is diagnosed in a patient, and stem cells are determined to be the appropriate treatment for the joint pain or damage, stem cells are injected into the source of the pain or injury. Once the stem cells interact with the cells around the damaged area of the body, they begin to mimic the makeup of the cells in that area. Then stem cells begin their work. They are a natural anti-inflammatory, so they can help reduce swelling or fluid in the joint. In addition, properly placed stem cells will speed up the body’s natural healing process and jumpstart injury regeneration. This means that your body will repair itself naturally with the boost provided by stem cells. Stem cells can also act as natural lubricants on the joints to improve mobility and functionality quickly.
Are stem cells safe?
Utilizing amniotic stem cells in treatments ensures the body will not reject the stem cells. In addition, stem cell regenerative treatment is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure designed to bypass surgery and all of the possible complications and post-operation treatment methods. When a patient is using stem cells to regenerate and repair joints and cartilage, they will begin to rebuild the joint to its pre-injury strength. So not only does the patient avoid surgery altogether, but the patient also does not need to suffer through months of time consuming and taxing rehabilitation sessions. Stem cells will repair while treatment is ongoing.
Ultimately, the choice to use surgical alternatives is the choice of the patient. However, by avoiding surgery, you avoid all of the risks and dangers that accompany joint surgery. This includes the dangers from anesthesia, bleeding, blood clots, breathing troubles and in worst cases, death.
If you are looking for a non-invasive alternative to surgery, consider stem cell regenerative therapy for any pain, discomfort or injury. The Vatican was right, stem cells are the future of medicine. The only difference is, the future is now.
