Stem Cell Therapy Aids New Soft Tissue Growth and Promotes Healing
Stem cell therapy is a form of alternative medicine that stimulates the body to heal itself and create new and healthy soft tissues in damaged areas. The use of a patients' own stem cells is considered safe and effective for restoring functionality to the body. At Multicare Health Clinic, we offer a variety of alternative medicine and chiropractic therapies that have been studied extensively. Following is a look at how stem cells help the body heal.
Understanding How Stem Cells Work
Stem cells, also known as mesenchymal stem cells, are a building block of the body. A stem cell is a kind of chameleon in that it can change itself into any type of cell in the body. That means a stem cell can convert into a soft tissue cell and become part of a tendon, muscle or ligament when called upon to do so. These cells can be called upon as backup when the body needs to heal and there is not enough in the way of existing cells to get the healing done right.
Where Stem Cells Come From and How They Work
Adipose tissue, also known as body fat, is full of stem cells that are beneficial to the healing of the body. These cells are harvested from the patient through liposuction, then cleaned and prepared for re-injection in the body. The resulting solution contains the harvested cells and other substances that are known to promote healing. When stem cells are injected into soft tissues, the body's healing process takes over and uses the cells to stimulate soft tissue growth. Stem cells get programmed to turn into soft tissue cells and rebuild the damaged areas.
What Makes Stem Cell Therapy a Safe Form of Regenerative Medicine?
Stem cell therapy is sometimes considered an alternative medicine due to the fact it is a newer therapy. However, it has been studied extensively and proven to work on a variety of physical conditions that cause chronic pain. What makes stem cell therapy so safe is the fact the stem cells almost always come from the patient. Using the patient's own stem cells means there is no risk of rejection or adverse reaction when the solution of cells and helpful materials is injected into the that is causing problems and pain.
