Renew Stem Cell Therapy uses stem cells which are the Future of Regenerative Medicine.
Why Use Stem Cell Therapy?
As we get older, our body’s regenerative capabilities can wane, leaving us prone to a range of painful degenerative conditions. Cells from a healthy baby’s umbilical cord could change this, providing the proteins, stem cells and growth factors needed to promote cell renewal and healing.
Regenerative Medicine Treats Various Medical Conditions Including:
- Joint Injuries
- Lower Back Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Knee Pain
- Acute Chronic Pain
- Soft Tissue Damage
- Plantar Fasciitis
Today, physicians are using stem cell therapies in the treatment of a wide array of medical diseases/disorders and traumas. Presently, the uses of stem cells is becoming common practice with orthopedics as it may help deter a knee replacement or surgical procedure and improve the function of joints following injury. Practitioners today are also using stem cells within disciplines like pain management, cardiology, rheumatology, and neurology.
How Stem Cell Treatment Works
Umbilical cord cells include stem cells, growth factors and a range of other beneficial proteins and compounds. We use blood from the umbilical cord which has been purified to get rid of any harmful substances that might cause rejection of the treatment by your body.
We inject the treated cord blood into the affected area, where the various active compounds found in cord cells go to work immediately to begin inflammation reduction and the promotion of healthy cell division and renewal. Some of the active compounds at work include VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor), IL-LRA (Interleukin-1, a receptor antagonist, stem cell factors (SCF), FGF-2 (Fibroblast Growth Factor-2) and Transforming Growth Factor-beta (TGF-beta). Each of these compounds has a slightly different effect, but the net result is that the damaged cells in your joints are given the ingredients they need to kick-start healthy renewal and regeneration. The injection changes the chemistry inside the joint, creating a healthier environment that encourages positive, healing changes to take place. A better blood supply to the area, a reduction in damaging chronic inflammation and stimulation of healthy tissue growth are all typical consequences of the minimally invasive stem cell treatments we provide.
By using umbilical cord cells in this way, it’s possible to transform joint therapy into a holistic healing process that prompts the body to enhance its own regenerative efforts. This results in a natural process of joint health improvement in the weeks or months following the injection.
