Stem cell therapy is a treatment with many applications for your health and wellness. Stem cells exist in your body to make repairs and grow new tissue, aiding in tissue healing and muscle building.
The cells haven’t yet acquired a particular mechanism of action, so they can transform into many different types of cells, depending on your body’s needs.
During stem cell therapy, Dr. Allende extracts unspecialized stem cells from your own body. Then, he injects the stem cells to your injury or area of focus to promote healing and restore the area’s function.
There are several types of stem cells in your body. They’re found in many places, including your fat, bones, muscles, and skin. They are most concentrated in your bone marrow, but they are easier to derive from your blood.
Mesenchymal stem cells are a type that Dr. Allende often uses for treatment. They don’t come from your own body. Rather, they’re harvested from healthy donor babies’ umbilical cords or amniotic blood shortly after their birth.
Dr. Allende may also combine your own platelet-rich plasma with mesenchymal stem cells to create an environment where they’ll flourish.
Mesenchymal stem cells are especially versatile and can transform into any type of cell in your body. Your own adult stem cells aren’t as versatile, but they can still aid in healing and regeneration.
Dr. Allende can help you explore the many benefits of using stem cell therapy for your specific condition or injury. He’ll help you select the right type of stem cell therapy for your preferences and needs.
Current research shows that mesenchymal stem cell therapy may be effective in repairing your tissues. Dr. Allende may recommend stem cell injections to help heal injuries of your joints or muscles or treat degenerative conditions like arthritis.
The expanding list of benefits includes:
When your stem cell therapy is combined with PRP, you’ll be amazed at how quickly and effectively your body heals itself without needing surgery.
Stem cell therapy and other types of regenerative medicine are still in their infancy. To learn more about how stem cell therapy may benefit you, call The Allende Centre for Regenerative Medicine & Vitality or book your appointment online today.
