Beginning research into stem cell therapies can be confusing because there is a ton of misleading information about the procedures available. Most people stumble upon these regenerative procedures while in search for options to eliminate the pain and chronic conditions plaguing their lives. If you suffer from degenerative orthopedic conditions, muscle or tendon damage, occupational or overuse injuries or peripheral neuropathy, you could be on track to discovering an amazing procedure that could change your life. Stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive procedure with a high success rate and is a great option for patients looking for alternatives to surgery and medication dependency. Although thousands of people across the country are taking advantage of stem cell therapies, many people miss their opportunity to eliminate their pain and chronic conditions because they don’t know enough about what stem cell therapy is all about.

When you search on the internet for stem cell information, you will find that many people have the misconception that stem cell therapies infringe on morality and ethics.  The most important thing to remember about stem cell therapy is that most of the procedures available are performed using analogous stem cells. Analogous stem cells are harvested from your own body, processed and injected back into the affected area. These therapies use your body’s own organic stem cells to stimulate your healing process and improve your health.  Your doctor will evaluate your condition and needs before deciding which stem cell therapy is right for you but let’s go over the main stem cell therapies available for a better understanding of what each regenerative procedures has to offer.

Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cells. Bone marrow stem cell therapy have been used for decades by oncologists to treat and cure various types of cancers, mainly leukemia. Soon the medical community realized that the stem cells from bone marrow also had the ability to reform cartilage tissue making it a break-through procedure for degenerative orthopedic conditions. Bone marrow derived stem cells have also been effective at treating respiratory conditions, metabolic conditions, and autoimmune diseases. The extraction of bone marrow stem cells is probably the most invasive of all stem cell therapy methods. Your doctor will numb your hip area with an anesthetic to extract bone marrow from your hip bone for processing. The extraction may produce a couple of days of soreness at the site, but the discomfort usually dissipates quickly. After your cells are harvested, you doctor will activate your stem cells with a regulated laboratory process and inject them back into you in the affected area.

Umbilical Cord Tissue Derived Stem Cells.  The human cell and tissue materials we use come from the umbilical cords of healthy, full-term deliveries. The stem cells we use do not contain any fetal or embryonic tissue.  They are rigorously tested to FDA guidelines
in a CLIA certified lab.  Depending upon the area being treated, the procedure can be completed in an office visit. We will be able to provide details specific to your treatment plan.

You’re probably researching stem cell therapy because you have a condition that needs attention but you know there is another alternative out there that will help you solve your problem. Stem cell therapies are changing the way we think about medical procedures and giving us more control over our healing by offering minimally invasive procedures that work in harmony with our bodies’ natural healing efforts. Stem cell therapy is safe because the materials used are from your own cells, so you don’t run the risk of your body rejecting the cells or having adverse reactions to the therapy. This innovative therapy is effective, and most people report feeling a significant reduction in pain within three months of the procedure.
