You’ve heard about them in the news, and perhaps have even read about them in AARP or Readers Digest…but did you know that stem cell therapy isn’t just science fiction anymore? This innovative medical marvel is both a readily available and highly effective therapeutic tool that can be used for a broad range of ailments.
Read on to learn more about how stem cell therapy might be able to help you or a loved one improve the quality of their lives and avoid costly surgical operations.
Remember playing with Lincoln Logs as a kid or Legos with your grandchildren? Well, stem cells are similar in that they are the body’s “building blocks”. Stem cells are those cells from which all other types of cells come from.
When subjected to the right conditions, these miracle cells can be manipulated to “regenerate” and multiply into cells with any number of desired specialized functions.
This process is called differentiation. And therein lies the medical marvel. Stem cells can be nudged to differentiate into any number of cell types needed such as:
Bone cells, Cartilage cells, Cardiac/heart cells, Neurons/Brain cells, And more…
While stem cells have been exciting scientists and the medical community for years, only recently have they become an available option for individuals such as yourself to consider. With stem cells has come incredible advancements in regenerative medicine as a mainstream therapy for a diverse range of medical conditions.
What does that mean?
“Regenerative Medicine” utilizes your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Exciting isn’t it?
Imagine if you were possibly able to avoid invasive and dangerous surgeries or treatments, and instead, helping your body to heal itself.
Both scientific and clinical studies have demonstrated the potential of stem cells to effectively regenerate various tissues, offering patients the opportunity to seek out stem cell therapy as a possible alternative to surgery.
This type of therapy is showing particular promise as it relates to improving the quality of life for those suffering with:
Neuromuscular issues, Joint issues, Knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, neck, back, hand, wrist, foot, and ankle issues
When was the last time you rolled out of bed pain-free or able to go for a brisk walk without your hip, knee, or other joint causing you discomfort?
What if that could all be remedied or improved with Regenerative medicine? Sometimes referred to as stem cell therapy, it can be used to promote the repair and regenerative response to injured, diseased, or dysfunctional tissues.
Stem cells may be able to help promote your body’s natural ability to heal conditions such as:
Torn cartilage or ligaments, Osteoarthritis, Bulging or herniated discs, Failed surgeries, Carpel tunnel syndrome, And more…
Over the years researchers have discovered a number of potential sources for stem cells: Umbilical Cord. But wait, isn’t umbilical cord blood only available during the birth of a child?
You would be correct, but you don’t need to have a late-life child in order to benefit. With the consent of parents who want to help others, the umbilical cord can be collected from the cord of a newborn baby shortly after birth and safely stored in tissue banks until needed.
