Learn about Stem Cell Therapy with P.R.I.M.E. Health Centers
At P.R.I.M.E. Health Centers, we want to help our patients feel their very best. Sometimes, regenerative treatments can be a great way to accomplish that goal. One possible regenerative treatment is the use of stem cell therapy. This is just one interesting form of integrated medicine that our chiropractic team is happy to speak with you about at our North County office.
What Is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine, which is also called stem cell therapy, has the goal of replacing joints, tissues, or organs that have been damaged over time, due to trauma, because of disease or due to congenital issues. It uses amniotic cells to promote healing naturally. It is not a form of primary care, but it can be used to repair damage that has been done.
The stem cells collected for regenerative medicine are taken from healthy live donors during Cesarean sections. All fluids are rested to eliminate the risk of communicable diseases and adhere to AATB guidelines.
Is Stem Cell Therapy Safe as a Major Medical Procedure?
Stem cell therapy is safe. There have been over 100 years of documents recorded looking into the safety of using amniotic treatment using stem cells from a donor. In that time, there has been no reported incident of rejection, because the amniotic tissues do not have HLA-type antigens. On the positive side, stem cells have been shown to have anti-tumorigenic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties.
What Conditions Can Be Treated with Stem Cell Therapy?
Some conditions that stem cell therapy can treat include:
- Joint problems
- Tissue damage
- Organ damage
Primarily, regenerative medicine is used in the joints, such as the ankles, shoulders, wrists, hips, and knees, but physicians can evaluate you and decide if a certain area of pain or discomfort would benefit from stem cell therapy.
