What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Are you currently suffering from pain due to Rheumatoid Arthritis, traumatic injuries, Lupus, autoimmune diseases, or orthopedic injuries? If you’re like the millions of people who suffer from pain, inflammation, and discomfort due to these medical conditions, Stem Cell Therapy might be just the treatment you need to finally get some relief.
Our Med Spa, Resurgence Wellness offers aesthetic treatments such as facials and chemical peels (read our latest article, “Let’s Talk About Chemical Peels”) and body sculpting. Still, we also provide regenerative medicine services to help everyone in any way that we can.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative Medicine is a branch of medicine that focuses on developing methods to grow, replace, repair, and rejuvenate damaged, diseased, or dysfunctional cells, organs, or tissues.
This form of medicine is helping to shape the future because it promotes advanced innovation towards the repair and rejuvenation of the body.
One of the main areas of Regenerative Medicine is Stem Cell Therapy.
Breakdown of Stem Cell Therapy
Like the medical branch it falls under, stem cell therapy opens up a whole new world of innovation and advancement in the medical industry.
When you hear the phrase “stem cell therapy,” you might think of the therapy that uses embryonic tissue. However, did you know that YOUR own body can produce stem cells, and those cells are used in today’s regenerative medicine techniques to help repair and rejuvenate the body?
How It Works
Stem cells are the “raw materials” or blank cells that generate other cells with specialized roles. Think of stem cells as the raw materials you need when baking a cake- you need eggs, flour, water, sugar, and more to make the cake. Without the materials, the cake doesn’t exist.
If you have an injury, inflammation, or disease that causes your body to not heal properly, you, in theory, don’t have all the raw materials to make a cake, aka, heal your body. Stem cells also have a unique, native design that attracts them to inflammation in the body.
That’s where stem cell therapy comes in! When you meet with your medical professional to discuss your discomforts, pain, and issues, they will analyze and assess your body to see if stem cell therapy is right for you.
If your medical professional decides that stem cell therapy is appropriate for you, you will have your stem cells harvested from your body! Having your stem cells harvested is a revolutionary technique that ultimately eliminates the chance of rejection. It also boosts the possibilities of repair and restoration of injuries, diseases, and inflammation.
When you come in for the procedure, you will go through a series of mini procedures to prepare your body for the injection and retrieve the stem cells to create the serum that will be injected into the area of concern.
On the day of the stem cell injection, your physician or medical professional will use a live X-ray or an ultrasound machine to guide the injection into the correct area of the body.
This is an outpatient procedure, and you will walk out of the office the same day within a couple of hours.
Your body will take a few weeks to adjust to the injection. It is not an “immediate” fix like when you receive a steroid or cortisone injection. It takes longer because the stem cells start repairing and rejuvenating the body to be as it was before the disease or injury took place.
Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy
In addition to its benefits surrounding inflammation and repair, patients who receive the injection benefit from:
- Improved quality of life
- Increased range of motion and flexibility
- Decreased pain
- Long term pain relief
- No need for surgical procedures
- Quicker recovery time
- Less chance of rejection
- Cost-savings compared to surgeries and medications
- Less reliance on medication, including addictive pain medications
