Pain Relief with Stem Cells

Stem cell therapy is an innovative form of regenerative medicine specifically designed to repair injured or diseased cells in the human body by regulating the immune system and reducing inflammation. This process makes stem cell therapy a very viable treatment option for various medical conditions. In the past, stem cells were believed to be destroyed in illness, but scientific research has shown that they can be successfully retrieved from the body when trauma occurs. Scientists have found that stem cells can be successfully “repped” or increased in number when certain injury or disease occurs. By repairing the damage to a cell stem from injury or disease, the patient will experience significant relief from their condition, as well as possibly prevent further injury or disease progression. Charlotte knee pain treatment offers stem cells for pain relief.

Stem Cell Therapy

The stem cell therapy process has recently been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for treating serious diseases like strokes and Parkinson’s disease as well as more “minor” conditions like multiple sclerosis and hepatitis. Doctors often inject these immature cells directly into the affected areas, causing no damage to the other surrounding tissues. In some cases, the procedure is used in conjunction with chemotherapy or radiation therapy to treat cancer.

Stem Cells

Stem cells are also being injected into areas of the brain and spinal cords to treat neurological disorders. The treatment is effective in treating such diseases as strokes, brain damage and spinal cord injuries. The transplantation of umbilical cord blood has also made stem cell therapy popular in recent years. The treatment may be used to treat such serious medical conditions as leukemia and childhood diseases, like sickle cell disease.
