Stem Cell Therapy
Have you been contemplating stem cell therapy to address a health issue? Are you confused as to what stem cell therapy really is? If you’re like many people in Central Jersey, or Bucks County, you’re hearing a bunch of stories about how it can help many health issues. Do you know the difference between this therapy and regenerative medicine?
Come in for a free consultation and let us explain why stem cell therapy may not be right for you but regenerative therapy may help you accomplish your healthcare goal!
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
What most people don’t realize is that the term stem cell therapy is very often being misused to include any treatment that contains stem cells of any kind. The truth is that stem cell therapy is based solely on using stem cells harvested from the patient’s body or a relative’s body. The two most common ways to do this are through bone marrow and adipose (fat cells).
Bone marrow is extracted from the body when the doctor drills a hole in the hip or femur and extracts the marrow. This newly extracted tissue is then processed for stem cells and those cells are injected into the patient. Yes…it is as painful as it sounds.
Adipose is extracted similarly to how liposuction is performed. The tissue is processed for stem cells and those cells are reinjected. The potential issue with adipose is that the body stores toxins in fat cells. Those toxins may adversely impact the quality of the stem cells and therefore your results.
So, what is a person to do that would like the healing abilities of stem cells, growth factors, proteins, cytokines etc.?
Regenerative Medicine Offers an alternative to Stem Cell Therapy
Our cutting-edge regenerative cell treatment options utilize injections containing mesenchymal stem cells, growth factors, cytokines and proteins sourced from umbilical allografts. The tissue is processed in accordance with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB). Healthy mothers donate the bioactive materials during cesarean section births. The collection of this tissue causes no harm to the mother nor child.
These healing cells are preferred for our treatments since they are young and in abundance within biological birth waste materials. Since they are so young, they are also easily taken up by your system. These cells can replicate at a fast rate, which means that once they’re injected into your body, your recovery can be much swifter. And, because they are not harvested from your body, there is no pain.
Regenerative Treatments Containing Growth Factors
Regenerative cell treatments take advantage of your body’s ability to repair on its own. Our experienced doctor injects the cells into the injured or affected areas to restore degenerated tissue while providing pain relief. The growth factors along with the mesenchymal stem cells can replace damaged cells in your body and lubricate joints and tendons to lessen your pain and set you on the path to restored mobility. This type of cellular treatment offers several other benefits such as:
- Anti-inflammatory effects due to growth factors called cytokines, which stimulate growth
- Promotion of cartilage, tendon, and tissue regrowth
- Reduced risk of patient rejection
- Faster recovery
- Reduced risk of lingering side effects
Cellular Treatment for Pain
Regenerative cellular treatments are a game-changing alternative to painful, invasive, and complicated surgeries and the regimen of pain-management medications that come along with them. When we inject these healing cells into the area of your body that is causing pain, they can transform into much-needed cells to kick-start your natural healing response.
As regenerative cells start to repair and regenerate the damaged areas of your body, you experience overall pain reduction and improved mobility.
Our cellular treatment for pain is suitable for:
- Knee pain, elbow pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, and any other joint paint
- Pain associated with torn or partially torn rotator cuff and partially torn or torn labrum
