Check out the uses of stems cells to see if you might benefit from it.
Stem cell therapy is an innovative healing method that uses your own body’s mechanisms to improve healing. As an alternative to invasive surgeries, stem cell therapy could provide a way for a person to address injuries and medical conditions that are painful and, at times, debilitating.
How Stem Cell Therapy Works
Stem cell therapy uses your own blood that is specially processed right in the doctor’s office. By injecting undifferentiated stem cells or other processed blood to a particular area that requires healing, your body’s natural healing responses are stimulated with an increase in results.
The entire procedure takes place over the course of a single visit to the doctor’s office. It involves just two needle sticks and absolutely no invasive or surgical procedures. You are never given anesthesia and there is no need for a recovery period before you can go about your normal daily activities.
Why Choose Stem Cell Therapy?
It’s true that your body has a natural tendency to heal itself built right into your DNA. That mechanism can have only limited success in some instances though. While minor injuries, such as a scratch on your hand, usually heal naturally on their own after just a few days, more complex situations are often beyond the capabilities of your body or the resources that it has access to on its own.
Sometimes, it’s not evident right away that the injury is not progressing toward a satisfactory repair until a great deal of time has passed. This accidental extension of the repair timeline can result in an injury that is more damaging and whose conclusion most often points toward surgery in order to gain relief.
Though surgery is most often not the first choice when it comes to repairing an injury, many surgical procedures act as a force that jumpstarts the body’s natural healing process once again. Stem cell therapy is able to do this without relying on surgery in order to stimulate your body’s natural healing responses and replace damaged tissues.
Uses of Stem Cells
It’s important to note that not every condition responds in the same way to the use of stem cells. However, using stem cells can help you find relief if you suffer from one or more of the conditions that can reduce your quality of life. Injuries of the knees, shoulders, hips, feet and ankles, for example, can be effectively addressed using this type of regenerative medicine. Neck, back and other disc injuries, as well as arthritis, tendonitis, elbow injuries and wrist soreness respond very favorably to using stem cell therapy.
