Stem cell therapy is a relatively new area of medical science. It is a form of treatment with the potential to deliver beneficial outcomes to patients with a wide variety of medical conditions.
If you are considering stem cell treatment, there will be many things you want to know about the therapy that you will receive, and how it will be applied.
You may have a host of questions such as, what are stem cells? How does stem cell therapy work? And what can you tell me about the injections involved? Here we will give you the answers to five of the questions most often asked about stem cell treatment and injections.
Stem cells have been described, simply but accurately, as the building blocks of the body. They are “blank” cells that have not yet been allocated a particular purpose. This makes them valuable to medical science, because they have the potential adapt to generate healthy tissue that a body needs.
There are many places in the body where stem cells are generated. However, at the Stemwell Clinic, we have found that the cells that offer the most promising outcomes through stem cell therapy are to be found in the umbilical cord tissue of full-term, healthy volunteer donors.
When stem cell therapy is applied to a patient, the cells go to work. They stimulate the generation of healthy tissue, modulate your immune system, and reduce inflammation. The robust stem cells we collect may be used on their own, or in combination with the patient’s own bone marrow stem cells.
There are two ways in which the stem cells we have harvested and selected may be delivered to the areas where they will do most good. The first is by targeted injection to a part of the body that is in most need of stem cell treatment. The second is to introduce them to the patient intravenously.
Stem cell treatment can support healing and improve the quality of life for patients with a wide variety of conditions and injuries. And each patient presents with individual symptoms. As a result, it is not possible to put a strict time-frame on how long it might be before the effects of stem cell therapy are noticeable. Some patients feel the benefit within 48 hours; for others, it can take more than six months.
