Able-bodied people take the functions of their body for granted. That is one of the reasons why any form of paralysis is traumatic, even devastating. The inability to move a part of your body feels like a reversal of the fundamental natural order of life.
Yet paralysis is sadly common. It can be caused by a wide variety of reasons, conditions and traumas, including stroke, multiple sclerosis, and spinal injury.
When a body part suffers from paralysis, the brain still sends the electrical impulse to it that requests it performs its natural function. Paralysis occurs because that message fails to travel through the nervous system to the affected area so that function can be performed.
Paralysis was traditionally believed in many scenarios to be irreversible. However, there are some cases in which the regenerative properties of stem cells have offered the potential for an improvement in the condition. Stem cell paralysis therapy can in this way enhance the sufferer’s quality of life.
It has been estimated that more than five million residents of the United States are living with some form of paralysis. About half a million people worldwide suffer spinal cord injuries each year.
There are many reasons for paralysis, but the general symptoms are usually an inability to move a particular part of the body, and/or to feel sensations in that area.
The fact that there are so many different forms of paralysis, and that each individual sufferer has unique symptoms, makes treatment challenging. But there have been some positive results over the last two decades from the use of stem cell treatments.
Stem cells have been accurately described as the building blocks of the body. They are blank, or undifferentiated, cells that have not yet been assigned to a specific purpose.
That means they have the potential to regenerate as healthy tissue in areas of the body that have been affected by an issue, including paralysis. Stem cells are allocated a purpose depending on the needs of a particular area of the body.
At the Stemwell Clinic, stem cells are either injected directly into the affected area so that they can regenerate damaged tissue, or applied intravenously. The stem cells we use are harvested from the umbilical cord tissue of full-term volunteer donors.
The regenerative properties of stem cells means they can support the creation of healthy tissue. That means stem cell paralysis treatment can lead to an improvement in a patient’s physical condition and overall quality of life.
