Stem cell therapy has been growing dramatically since the last decade. The most promising thing about stem cell therapy is the fact that it opens the possibility to offer relief for patients with chronic pain and difficult-to-heal injuries, all without medications or risky surgeries. Today, we will share the implications, treatment, as well as multiple conditions that can benefit from this therapy. What is Stem Cell Therapy? Stem cell therapy is a type of treatment that uses a patient’s stem cells to repair damaged cells, tissue, and injuries. The procedure is performed through injections and is a simple office procedure that doesn’t require general anesthesia or major cares. According to the National Institute of Health, Stem cells are important for living organisms for many reasons. In the 3- to 5-day-old embryo, called a blastocyst, the inner cells give rise to the entire body of the organism, including all of the many specialized cell types and organs such as the heart, lungs, skin, sperm, eggs and other tissues. In some adult tissues, such as bone marrow, muscle, and brain, discrete populations of adult stem cells generate replacements for other cells that are lost through normal wear and tear, injury, or disease. Types of Stem Cells Therapy There are two types of Stem Cell transplants: Autologous stem cells and allogeneic Stem cells The sources of where these type of Stem cells are harvested are bone marrow, adipose tissue, umbilical cord blood, and umbilical cord tissue, all safe and rich sources. Autologous Therapy: Stem cells are normally taken from bone marrow ( via aspiration process) or adipose tissue, once stem cells are obtained they are placed in a “centrifuge machine” that spins them and concentrates the extract. The process is effective, however, it presents various downsides. Disadvantages of Autologous Therapy: Requires an actual aspiration, which can be painful Bone marrow sample requires approximately 2 months of expansion to obtain pure MSC’s stem cells (mesenchymal stem cells) In adults, the number of stem cells is lower every year thanks to the aging process In adults, stem cell quality and function decreases Allogeneic Therapy: In an allogeneic transplant, harvested stem cells are transplanted into the patient to suppress the disease and restore the patient’s immune system. An allogeneic stem cell transplant is different from an autologous stem cell transplant, which uses stem cells from the patient’s own body. Advantages of Allogeneic Therapy: Does not require aspiration (No Pain at All) Mesenchymal stem cells (msc’s) are already expanded ready for treatment Number of stem cells is constant maintaining 90%+ viability for therapeutic approaches Stem cells are healthier, more powerful, and higher in quality and quantity The Rehealth Process Our stem cell therapy process is designed to be practical and efficient to simplify our patient’s procedure and recovery process. At Rehealth we prefer allogeneic therapy due to its amazing, long-lasting results. We also have our own stem cell bank that allows us to treat patients without the need to wait for the expansion of cells, or buying the cells from a third party company. Our steps include: 1- Patient Evaluation (Apply here.) 2- Personalized Treatment. 3- Start of a pain-free life. Benefits of Stem Cells Therapy According to different studies, stem cell therapy has been found beneficial for several conditions and there is actually no limit to the types of diseases that could be treated with stem cell therapy. The main benefit that stem cell therapy provides is healing in the following conditions: Orthopedic injuries Musculoskeletal problems Wounds and incisions Spinal cord injuries Traumatic brain injury Cardiovascular diseases like coronary heart disease, stroke and congestive heart failure (ranked as the number one cause of death in the United States every year since 1900) Neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s Longevity and skin related therapies COPD and respiratory diseases After the therapy, patients experience unique features and benefits that include: Speedy recovery of wounds Reduced pain, even in chronic conditions Increased functionality, motion, and even sleep quality Reduced muscle compensations, and risk of future injuries Decreased nerve damage Increased collagen Regenerated blood vessel tissue Improved damaged skin Reduced hair loss Quickly recovery, the patient is able to return to normal activities ASAP Your Journey Towards a Better You At Rehealth, we use stem cell therapy to help your body restore itself.
