How the Body Heals Itself and What Stem Cells Have To Do with It

If you get sick or incur an injury, your body naturally responds by healing itself. There are numerous processes that go into effect to heal the sick or injured area and restore your body to its normal, healthy self. Stem cells play a significant role in the body’s natural healing process and are essential to your body’s ability to recover from illness and injury. 

The Function of Stem Cells

Unlike any other type of cell in the body, stem cells can regenerate into other types of cells. Stem cells can create bone cells, muscle cells, blood cells, brain cells, etc. This makes stem cells invaluable in repairing diseased or damaged tissue throughout the body. 

Embryonic stem cells form the essential cell types for fetal development. Adult stem cells remain after the embryonic stem cells are gone. While adult cells diminish as we age, they help the body heal itself throughout our lives. When illness or injury damages cells, adult stem cells regenerate, creating healthy cells to replace the damaged ones. This allows your body to heal from various injuries and medical conditions.  

Stem Cell Therapy To Boost Healing

Stem cell therapy provides additional stem cells to an area of damaged tissue to facilitate the healing process. The stem cells provided in stem cell therapy bolster the body’s natural healing process for a faster recovery. 

Stem Cells in Orthopaedic Treatment

When stem cells are injected into the body during stem cell therapy, the stem cells are activated to develop healthy tissue and restore the damaged tissue. We provide stem cell therapy to aid patients’ recovery from degenerative joint conditions and various soft tissue problems. 

If you’re struggling with an orthopaedic injury or condition, stem cell therapy could be a beneficial regenerative treatment option for you. Contact us today to learn if you could be a good candidate for stem cell therapy.
