What are stem cells?
Stem cells are biological cells within the human body that can be converted into a variety of different cell types to help with the healing and regeneration of other organs and body parts. Scientists are conducting extensive research in the field of regenerative medicine to boost immunity and treat diseases with the help of stem cells taken from the patient’s own body. As many of our organs are known to have the power to regenerate themselves (such as liver and skin) the scientific community is committed to the growing field of stem cell regeneration to allow for the treatment and rebuilding of muscle mass, damaged tissues, and even failing organs.
How are stem cells used?
Stem cells taken from a patient’s body are used for the generation of organs and tissues, which can then be transplanted within the body. Complete organs and minor illnesses have successfully been treated with the help of this innovative research field. The cured conditions include blindness, minor brain damage, burns, broken bones, and others. (Cirm.ca.gov, 2014) Thus, the process is relatively simple. The stem cells are extracted from your body, cultured externally in controlled environments, and then returned to your body to initiate the healing process or replace the damaged organ.
What are stem cells able of treating?
This is an ever-expanding and exciting field of medical science where developments come at a rapid pace. The original focus of our practice has been the restorative function of muscle and tissues in specific sections of the body such as the knee, joint, shoulder and hip areas. In addition, we can also cover many cases of arthritis and chronic disorders pertaining to major inflammation or damage.
