What Are Stem Cells?
The cells in your body have an amazing ability to transform into different types of tissues as required. Some may specialize as muscles, tendons, nerve tissue, or bone. Stem cells are a special type of cell that hasn’t specialized yet. These cells are essentially a blank slate, capable of turning into a large number of body tissues.
By harvesting stem cells from your own body, doctors can “program” these tiny building blocks to become the exact type of tissue you need to heal an injury, be it cartilage for your joints or muscle proteins for repairs.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
The first step is to harvest stem cells that are autologous or come from your own body. Bone marrow and fatty adipose tissue contain the largest concentration of stem cells in adults. Once doctors have the correct amount of stem cells, they inject these natural healing factors into the site of your injury along with your blood platelets. This activates the stem cells, causing them to start regenerating damaged tissue.
Who Is Stem Cell Therapy Designed For?
The possibilities of stem cells for regeneration and repair are virtually limitless, but their effects are especially desirable in areas of the body that were previously believed to be impossible to regenerate, such as cartilage. Here a few situations where stem cell therapy can make a significant difference:
