Regenerative Cellular Tissue
Regenerative cellular tissue uses stem cells, growth factors and other substances naturally found in the body to help heal a variety of pain conditions. It targets the source of pain, locking into degraded and damaged cells to boost regeneration. Our doctors can harness the power of this regenerative medicine method to treat your pain naturally, giving you back quality of life without drugs or surgery.
What are Stem Cells?
A stem cell is an undifferentiated cell type that can assume the role of any other type of cell – known as tissue-specific. This includes muscle, bone and cartilage – areas of the body that cause us pain as we age. Not every type of stem cell is suitable regenerative cellular therapy for pain.
Not all adult stem cells, for example, can be transformed into multiple types of tissue. Embryonic stem cells, while the most versatile, raise strong ethical concerns and are not available to treat pain in the United States.
Types of Stem Cells
Of the available types of stem cells, three are commonly used by doctors to treat pain. Adipose tissue stem cells come from body fat. They are extracted from one’s own body, concentrated and injected into treatment sites. However, results are limited because these cells age with the patient, making them less plentiful. They may also contain toxins that build up with age and external factors.
Bone marrow stem cells are also harvested for one’s own use and are most helpful for treating heart and blood disorders. The benefits of this type of regenerative cellular tissue is also limited because, like adipose-derived stem cells, they age with the patient and can contain environmental toxins.
Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal stems cells may not be as familiar-sounding, but it’s a term you should get to know. These are derived from the umbilical cords of healthy caesarean, donated by consenting, carefully screened donors. Mesenchymal cells are young, regenerative cells that contain growth factors, collagens, proteins, peptides and messenger cells such as cytokines.
Regeneration Using Treatments Containing Stem Cells and Other Growth Factors
Treatments containing growth factors and mesenchymal cells is true regenerative cellular therapy. They bathe painful areas in a rich extract of healing substances. Wharton’s jelly derived stem cells, concentrated and injected directly into treatment areas, seek out and dock onto tissues that need regeneration.
This regenerative cellular tissue therapy can relieve:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Elbow and joint pain
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Hip pain
- Damaged or degraded cartilage
- Torn ligaments
If you’re looking for all-natural pain relief, if you don’t want to rely on addictive pain medication or go under the knife until you’ve exhausted other options, regenerative cellular therapy may be the right answer for you.
If you’re concerned about injecting substances into your body, it’s important to remember that treatments containing growth factors and stem cells are natural human cells and come from sources that are carefully vetted and adhere to the strictest national standards. It’s also important to choose your regenerative cellular tissue provider carefully.
