What is Stem Cell Therapy?

On This Page (Contents)

Before explaining what stem cell therapy is in detail, we would like to talk about what stem cells are and how they can help in treatments. Stem cells are unique human cells that give rise to functional cells. Stem cells are also known as "master cells" because they give rise to "daughter cells." These daughter cells have the potential to develop into new stem cells or specialized cells. Bone cells, heart muscle cells, body muscle cells, brain cells, and blood cells are examples of specialized cells. 

How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?

How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?

Stem cell treatment (SCT) involves the direct administration of cells into the body for therapeutic purposes. Stem cells are mostly obtained from the individual’s own body, and they can transform into several types of mature cells that the individual’s body needs to heal and regenerate.

There are four main types of stem cells; embryonic tissues, fetal tissues, adult tissues, and diversified somatic cells that have been biologically altered to become induced pluripotent stem cells. However, adult or embryonic tissues are utilized for stem cell treatment. Researchers culture these cells in a laboratory and manipulate them to specialize in specific types of cells, such as nerve, blood, or muscle cells. Following that, the cells can be implanted in a person, for example, if he or she has heart disease. In this case, a doctor can inject the cells into the heart muscle. Stem cell injection is a quick and easy outpatient procedure. 

Embryonic Stem Cells

The stem cells are derived from 3-5 day old embryos. A blastocyst, which contains 150 cells, is the term used to describe an embryo at this stage. These cells are pluripotent, which means they can divide into more stem cells or become any type of cell in your body. Because of their adaptability, embryonic cells can repair or regenerate diseased organs and tissue. 

Adult Stem Cells 

The majority of adult tissues, such as fat and bone marrow, contain trace amounts of these stem cells. Compared to embryonic cells, these cells have a more limited ability to give rise to various body cells. 

How Successful is Stem Cell Therapy?

The success rate of Stem Cell Therapy in the World is usually 80 to 85 percent. 

What are the Benefits of Stem Cell Treatment?

Stem cells contain natural growth factors that aid in the body's healing process. It also helps to alleviate pain caused by the disease or injury without the use of pain relievers and the benefits of stem cell therapy are several.

Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy

The use of stem cells in regenerative medicine offers numerous benefits in pain management and other medical procedures. Here are the advantages of stem cell therapy: 

  1. Effectively Reduces Pain 
    The use of stem cells in pain management provides pain relief while also reducing inflammation associated with the pain. The goal is to repair and regenerate the affected area while providing effective pain relief. 
  2. Post-Procedural Recovery is very fast 
    The recovery period, rather than the treatment, takes the majority of the time in a typical surgical or medical procedure. Recovery time is reduced when stem cells are used. The goal is to help patients return to their normal lives as soon as possible. 
  3. Strives for Responsible Innovation  
    A stem cell treatment is a cutting-edge medical innovation that helps repair and rejuvenate damaged tissues, nerves, cartilage, and muscles. While stem cell therapy provides immediate relief, it also provides safe and efficient results. 
  4. Enhances Functionality, Movement Range, and Flexibility 
    Patients are always eager to get back to their normal routines. While stem cell treatments provide rapid recovery, they also improve the functionality, range of motion, and flexibility of the injured joint, muscle, or part of the body. One of the amazing benefits of stem cell treatments is that they can help patients restore their injured body parts to their pre-injury state. 
  5. Not Only for Pain Management but Also for All Medical Conditions 
    Stem cell therapies are used in pain management procedures to repair, replace, or rejuvenate degenerative joints and damaged tissue, ligaments, or nerves. Stem cell therapies, on the other hand, have been used to treat other medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease, diabetes, and other autoimmune diseases. 
  6. A Possible Remedy for an Injury
    Some injuries can result in permanent tissue damage. Patients who sustain serious injuries in sports, at work, or in automobile accidents frequently experience excruciating pain and frustration. Damaged tissue can gradually regrow with the use of stem cells, reducing frustrations while providing pain relief. 
  7. Avoids Nerve Damage  
    Some surgical procedures might cause nerve damage, affecting the body's mobility and functionality. There is a low risk of nerve damage with stem cell treatments. The stem cell is delivered directly to the affected area, avoiding damage to nearby nerves. 
  8. No Requirement for General Anesthesia  
    While the iliac crest is used to harvest bone marrow for stem cell generation, the treatment is minimally invasive and non-surgical. As a result, no general anesthesia is required. 
  9. Risk of Rejection is Low to None 
    Most stem cell treatments make use of biological materials derived directly from the patient's body. As a result, there is less chance of body rejection or complications.
