Stem Cell Therapy uses Your Stem Cells to Treat Orthopedic Injuries, Arthritis and Other Degenerative Conditions.
harvested from the patient’s own body. They are harvested from bone marrow. They are not cells from an embryo, fat, placenta or donor source. The cells are taken directly from the patient’s body and are not manipulated. They are concentrated and re-injected with precise guidance to the area of degeneration to repair and regenerate.
Stem cells are very powerful cells and do their work in a variety of ways at the area injected. First, they increase mitochondrial transfer to the damage cells. The mitochondria are inside every cell and are the powerhouse of the cell. Stem cells injected around unhealthy cells will transfer their healthy mitochondria to the damaged cartilage cells. The healthy mitochondria then recharge the damage
Next, when injected into a degenerating joint, they can control the destructive inflammation found in arthritic joints. Severe arthritis in the joint creates a thick synovium filled with destructive macrophages. These cells become overactive and begin to destroy healthy cartilage cells further damaging the joint. Stem cells, when injected, detect the overactive macrophages and deactivate them, thus protecting the healthy cartilage from further damage and breakdown. They also instruct the macrophages to start to release helpful growth factors that aid in the repair and regenerative process.
Stem cells also help repair damage cells by responding to signaling from the damaged cartilage cells. The stem cells respond to the damaged cells signals and initiate a coordinated healing response to help them. The stem cells release growth factors that guide the healing process and recruit more cells to the area to help with the healing.
Another fascinating way stem cells work is through teaching the damage cells to start creating healthy proteins that can aid in tissue repair. They do this by secreting exosomes. Exosomes are pods carrying messenger RNA (mRNA). Messenger RNA encodes for protein synthesis. The exosome leaves the stem cell and enters the damage cell and donate its healthy mRNA. The healthy mRNA then starts to code for healthy regenerative proteins in the damage cell. So the stem cells help convert unhealthy damaged cells into healthy protein creating healing cells. It is pretty amazing what stem cells can do by converting unhealthy cartilage into healthy cartilage. We can regenerate!
