Stem cell therapy is at the heart of regenerative medicine. It is now being used in wound care and treating a variety of conditions. Research has proven that stem cells regenerate into the skin, muscle, bone, and even cartilage. And by using amniotic stem cells, health care professionals can provide respite, new life to suffers from joint pain, especially arthritis.
Research and public discussion on stem cell has come a long way. There were moral and ethical issues that needed to be addressed, which made the provision of accurate information to the general public hard. Now those ethical concerns have been assuaged with the knowledge that amniotic stem cells that are only extracted during already scheduled cesarean births with full consent of the donors.
Stem and precursor cells are now available from a wide variety of sources, such as embryos, gestational and adult tissues, and reprogrammed differentiated cells. This has led to an increase in the sophistication and utility of engineered tissues.
Stem Cells can be used to treat many conditions, including musculoskeletal conditions like joint arthritis, cartilage defects, or soft tissue injury to tendons or ligaments. It can also be used to treat non-healing wounds, kidney and/or cardiac disease, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and many more. COPD is an umbrella term used to describe progressive lung diseases including emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and refractory, non-reversible asthma.
The most important thing about stem cell treatments is that it repairs and regenerates damaged tissues instead of masking or treating symptoms. As a regenerative therapeutic procedure, stem cell injections are great for treating chronic back pain or chronic pain from knee arthritis.
