Stem cell therapy is an advanced treatment in regenerative medicine. We offer stem cell therapy to help patients recover from degenerative joint conditions and specific soft tissue problems. Stem cells have the ability to enhance the natural healing process of the body, making stem cell therapy a valuable asset in the treatment of various orthopaedic injuries and conditions.
What Are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are a type of cell in the body that produce other cells with particular functions. In other words, stem cells form the basis for brain cells, bone cells, nerve cells, blood cells, and more. Stem cells are the only type of cell in the body with the natural capacity to create different kinds of cells.
Stem Cells Throughout the Stages of Life
The earliest purpose of stem cells in our bodies is seen in embryonic stem cells. Embryonic stem cells aid in creating body parts when a fetus is in the womb. As adults, stem cells are used to replace damaged or diseased cells throughout the body whenever illness or injury occurs.
The number of stem cells in the body naturally decreases with age, meaning that your body will become less effective at recovering from illness and injury as you get older. Stem cell therapy may be able to offset this effect to help you recover from orthopaedic injuries and conditions.
Stem Cells in Regenerative Medicine
In regenerative medicine, stem cells can be used to supplant diseased or damaged cells. If the stem cells are injected into the injured area, they’ll be prompted to regenerate and repair the damaged tissues. This supports the body’s natural healing process and can lead to a faster, more successful recovery.
