Stem Cell Therapy

In the recent year, clinical investigations about stem cells treatment have been advanced dramatically, to configure various different outcomes in treating degenerative disorders. These treatments are identified to be the most appealing as they directly work on the root cause of the issue, reversing the conditions to minimize their relative after effects, such as progression, pain and symptomatic management of the disease. 

Conventional medications for many degenerative disorders, such as orthopedic conditions as well as metabolic disorders are either anti-inflammatory steroidal medications or surgery; in order to manage pain and other locomotary issues.  However, long term use of steroidal medications can be dangerously associated with multiple organ failure; whereas surgery has never been a feasible option, due to the cost involved as well as risk associated with the same. In this regard, many scientists and medical experts are supporting stem cells treatment as minimally invasive as well as risk free alternative to use body’s natural ability to heal. 

Stem cells are identified to be the mother cells of the body, with the ability to multiply unlimited times and transformed into cells of different tissue origin. They are the leading cells, responsible for formatting an entire cellular makeup of the human body, during fetal development inside the mother’s womb. In fact, a small fraction of these mighty cell is being stored in the form of a reserved quota in each adult mature organ and can be utilized to maintain cell number intact, in case of damage due to normal wear and tear of the body. However, some of the external as well as internal factors are responsible for unbalancing the cell number, as in number of cell death is more than its production; identified to be as the diseased condition. In such conditions, a reserved quota of cell is never sufficient, demanding for additional supply of stem cells; wherein stem cells treatment can be beneficial. 

Technological advanced have allowed easy access to these stem cells isolated from bone marrow as well as adipose tissue; autologous stem cells sources. These stem cells are enriched under controlled conditions and can be infused back at the site of injury. In case of neurodegenerative disorders, stem cells are injected directly in the cerebrospinal fluid, whereas in case of orthopedic disorders they are added in the joints. Targeted delivery of stem cells is acknowledged to be beneficial because of limited possibility of them getting lost in the vascular system. Once infused in the body, these stem cells create a perfect homing environment, by regulating immune cells, secreting different growth factors and stimulating resident stem cells to proliferate and multiply further. The regulatory effects can accentuate clinical outcome, due to more tissue specific differentiation of stem cells, and reverse damaging effect due to autoimmunity and disease progression. 

Thus, stem cells treatment has been found to be effective in:

  • Speedy recovery and quick healing
  • Pain management, omitting the need for steroidal medications
  • Improving functionality, including flexibility, range of motion and quality of life
  • Reducing risk for progressive damage

Various research and clinical studies have so far proven that stem cells exhibit the unlimited ability to treat potential damaging diseases, which wouldn’t have been cured through conventional treatment.
