What are stem cells?

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), stem cells are special cells that can differentiate into the various tissues in our bodies, such as muscle tissue, nerves, skin, and blood. They also have a crucial role during fetal development by acting as the fundamental cell types for all body systems – from the formation of tissues like fleshy and bone-like masses to replenishing dying organs until they eventually yield fresh ones again.

There are several types of stem cells, including adult stem cells, which can be found in the body and can continue to divide; embryonic stem cells, which are found in the early stages of development and can only divide a limited number of times; and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which are created from mature skin cells that have been turned into pluripotent stem cells.

Types of stem cells

Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)

Mesenchymal stem cells are adult stem cells extracted from a range of sources, such as bone marrow, adipose tissue (fat), umbilical cord tissue, and even amniotic fluid surrounding a fetus. Differentiation potential is exhibited by these adult progenitor cells that can be used therapeutically for regenerative purposes.

MSCs are found in every person’s bone marrow and accumulate during youth for eventual use to support the body’s healing process. As we age; however, their number and efficacy dwindle – a phenomenon commonly observed among all human life spans.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), or stromal stem cells, can differentiate into a plethora of cellular fusions within the body; these include:

  • Skin cells
  • Bone cells
  • Cartilage
  • Muscle cells
  • Neural cells
  • Corneal cells

Autogenous MSCs & Autologous MSC’s

Autogenous MSCs are typically derived from a patient’s own bone marrow or fat. Current scientific evidence supports the greatest benefit with stem cells extracted from bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), making it doctors’ preferred option for treatment and regeneration. On the other hand, additional stem cell research into functionalities, regenerative capacities as well as alleviating pain associated with those sources of MSCs is currently underway.

MSCs have been shown to promote regeneration and wound healing, as well as combat inflammation. In fact, MSCs have been found to improve outcomes in a wide variety of chronic diseases, including: osteoarthritis, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and spinal cord injury.

Allogeneic MSCs

Allogenic MSCs, or allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells, are a type of stem cell therapy that is gaining traction in the medical world. This type of stem cell therapy is unique because it uses stem cells taken from a donor and transplanted into the patient, allowing the patient to reap the benefits of the donor’s healthy cells. By doing this, researchers are able to use fewer stem cells than traditional therapies and still achieve great results. Allogenic MSCs have been shown to help with a variety of ailments and diseases, making them a promising treatment option for many.

Umbilical Cord Blood

Umbilical cord blood is a rich source of stem cells, which can be used for a variety of medical therapies. These stem cells have the ability to differentiate into various types of cells, including blood cells and immune cells. This property makes them useful for treating a wide range of diseases, such as blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, inherited immune system and metabolic disorders, and inherited blood disorders such as sickle cell anemia and thalassemia.

Umbilical cord blood stem cells are also being studied and used for their potential use in regenerative medicine. The procedure is relatively non-invasive and it is easy to collect and process cord blood.

Cord blood banking is the process of collecting and storing umbilical cord blood for future medical use. Cord blood can be collected and stored at a cord blood bank, either privately or through the public cord blood donation program, in case the baby or family member may need it in future.

What do stem cell injections do?

Stem cell therapy is an effective method of medical treatment that harnesses the self-renewal, immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory properties of stem cells to positively alter the physiology within our bodies.

The stem cells used in the injections can either be taken from the patient’s own body or from a donor. The stem cells are then injected directly into the affected area, where they can help to repair and regenerate damaged tissue. This can help to reduce inflammation, improve mobility, and even reduce pain. While stem cell therapy is still considered experimental, it is showing promising results for many patients. If you are interested in exploring this option further, be sure to speak with your healthcare provider.

What are the benefits of stem cell injections?

5. Autoimmune Diseases

Stem cell therapy is becoming increasingly popular as a promising treatment for autoimmune diseases. These diseases, which occur when the body’s own immune system attacks healthy tissue, can cause a wide range of conditions such as lupus, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and Crohn’s disease. Stem cell therapy has the potential to reduce inflammation and stop the immune system from attacking its own cells, providing hope to those suffering from these debilitating conditions.

STEM CELL AND REGENERATIVE TREATMENTS

Stem cell injections can be administered in conjunction with one’s surgical treatment, augmenting its effects or utilized as a solitary therapy for alleviating pain related to orthopedic conditions. Many patients who seek relief from excruciating joint issues opt to try this form of regenerative medicine in order to forego surgery altogether; success may often be attained through concomitant utilization of stem cells along with the procedure itself. By reducing infection risk and ameliorating postoperative inflammation, restoration time is shortened while also enhancing faster healing times and ultimately hastening return-to-normality after surgeries – all without any additional expenditure!

Stem cell injections can be augmented by conjoining them with other orthobiologic modalities like prolotherapy or PRP injection of dextrose-saline solution. Platelets are believed to be home to myriad growth factors and cytokines which may aid in tissue regeneration; consequently, incorporating stem cells into the mix might generate an even more intense healing response.
