Stem cells are incredible cells in the human body. They are the cells from which all other specialized cells are generated. Stem cells can also divide to form more cells called daughter cells. These daughter cells can become new stem cells, or become specialized cells. No other cell in our body has the natural ability to generate new cell types, which make stem cells so special. This is also why medical researchers everywhere are working to find better ways to use stem cells to cure and aid in diseases and ailments.
Stem Cell Therapies Available Today
The stem cell therapy treatments available at the American Regenerative Clinic locations are an incredible example of using the body’s own healing powers on itself. It essentially works by isolating stem cells from one location of the body (fat tissue or bone marrow) and relocating them to an area of disease, injury, or inflammation. This is accomplished by using injections to move stem cells from one area of the body to another.
Stem cells’ main job in our bodies is to maintain and repair tissue. Stem cell treatments employ this natural function by moving stem cells to an area of need within the body. The magic of stem cells is that once they’re in the affected area of the body, they can adapt and grow into any type of cell the body needs in order to repair the area. For example, stem cell therapy can assist in stem cells becoming bone cells, cartilage cells, muscle cells, and more. By repairing these cells, patients can experience an overall better quality of life.
Stem Cell Experiences from Patients
At the American Regenerative Clinic, we have many patients that come to us wanting to reduce their pain. Whether it’s from an accident, a disorder, or just joints getting older with time, chronic pain can be very draining to deal with every day.
Here are a few real patients talking about their experiences with stem cell therapies:
Jean, who came to American Regenerative from Echo Bay, Ontario says, “I am on the recovery road for the last 3 months. I am getting better every day. Less pain and looking to get better each day.”
Sherry from Detroit, Michigan says, “When I came to the clinic I was walking slumped over with pain. My knees were bone on bone. I received the Stem Cell injections and began my therapy. I am walking remarkably better. Most of all, I am not bone on bone. NO PAIN in my knees.”
Finally, Ann, from Birmingham, Michigan says, “After left knee replacement surgery I began to read about stem cell injections knowing that my right knee was in need of help down the line. My stem cell injections have relieved my pain in a short time and I only wish others could experience this for themselves.”
As you can see, most patients who experience stem cell therapy see a huge difference in the pain they experience on a daily basis. They also report being able to do things that they previously couldn’t like walking and exercising. Stem cell therapies allow people to get back to their normal routines, and do things such as exercising, which can of course lead to many more health benefits and generally contributes to a longer, more quality life.
A Holistic Approach to Treatment
The American Regenerative Clinic takes a functional medicine approach to all treatments. This essentially means taking a patient-centered approach to treatment. Using this method allows practitioners and patients to work in conjunction with one another to not only uncover the underlying causes of disease but to combine efforts on all attempts to treat the ailment/s. Patients, therefore, feel that they are actively involved in their recovery and take responsibility for the treatment plan and approach.
