Chronic pain or degenerative joint conditions can be challenging because they prevent you from engaging in activities you love and make it difficult to go about your daily life. There are many treatments currently available, but the appeal of alternative health treatments, particularly regenerative medicine, is steadily rising thanks to their ability to restore mobility and functionality.
Stem Cell therapy is currently among the most popular regenerative medicine procedures today. In this method, special biological cells are injected into the damaged muscles and joints to stimulate natural regrowth and repair. Although Stem Cell therapy has long been a viable option for patients who wish to avoid invasive medications and surgery, there are still skeptics who are unsure of its effectiveness.
If you've been considering Stem Cell therapy but have your own doubts, read on. In this blog, we will be debunking 4 common myths and misconceptions about Stem Cell therapy.
Regenerative medicine is the practice of using our bodies’ natural biological processes to stimulate the healing and regrowth of cells, organs, and tissues that have been damaged by degenerative disease. Unlike invasive medications and surgery, regenerative medicine targets the root causes of the pain, providing longer-lasting pain relief and improving the body’s functionality.
Let’s go over the different types of regenerative medicine procedures commonly used today.
Autologous stem cell transplants have no risks of rejection. This is because the stem cell solutions are extracted from the patient’s own bone marrow or fat tissues.
Allogeneic transplants may have this risk because they extract stem cell solutions from donated umbilical cords. The good news is that this risk can be mitigated by sourcing the stem cells from the patient’s relatives for donations or by using the primitive young cells found in the Wharton’s Jelly tissue in the umbilical cord.
Here at Beyer Functional Wellness, we derive our stem cell solutions from donated umbilical cords and test all our donors thoroughly beforehand. If you wish to learn more about this procedure and our approach.
The stem cells found in adult bone marrow and fat tissues are what the body uses to naturally repair itself. Although these cells are less versatile than embryonic stem cells, they have been proven to be just as effective in treating degenerative joint and tissue conditions. Adult stem cells are also easier and more ethical to procure, making them ideal for treating many patients.
This couldn’t be more false. As mentioned earlier, donated umbilical cords contain a tissue called the Wharton’s Jelly, which houses millions of undifferentiated, young, and biologically active stem cells. These cells are no less effective than others when used in treatment.
