Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy at The Wellness Center PDX in Portland, OR

The human body has a remarkable ability to heal itself of many kinds of tissue damage -- but even the body's own healing processes can use a little help now and then. This is especially true for tissues that don't have sufficient access to the "blank slate" cells known as stem cells, which can transform themselves into whatever tissue needs regenerating. That's when it's great to know that The Wellness Center PDX in Portland, OR can jump-start this healing process by using stem cell therapy to help you overcome nagging or debilitating conditions.

The Healing Power of Stem Cells

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells, meaning that they have yet to take on any specialized characteristics. The body uses many kinds of specialized cells (such as muscle cells, brain cells, nerve cells, and skin cells) to repair and remodel various types of tissues. A tissue that needs to regenerate itself uses chemical reactions to change neighboring stem cells into its particular kind of cells. The downside to this amazing process is that some areas of the body have far less access to stem cells than others. The body's lifetime supply of stem cells also drops dramatically over the years, making it harder for the body to repair itself.

The good news is that stem cells can be donated, stored, and then injected into damaged or ailing tissues. Contrary to what some may believe, there's no need for embryonic cells to be used. At the Wellness Center PDX, we use donated amniotic stem cells taken from umbilical cord fluid. When a concentrated stem cell solution is injected into the treatment site, the cells become immediately available for transformation into whatever cells are needed to enhance healing. This field of care is known as regenerative medicine.

Conditions We Can Treat With Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy makes a natural complement to the other non-surgical techniques offered by our chiropractor in Portland. We may recommend a course of stem cell therapy for the treatment of osteoarthritis, torn muscles, damaged tendons or ligaments, chronic knee pain, acute accident injuries, and a variety of degenerative joint conditions. This therapy, in combination with other conservative treatments, can help you enjoy quicker recovery, less pain, and greater range of motion once the body has had time to put these cells to good use.

Reviews From our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Gabriel. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."
    John Doe / Portland, OR
  • "As a court reporter, using my hands to type on a daily basis is a requirement. The work is speedy and can often last for hours at a time. Several months ago, every movement I made became excruciatingly painful. I started seeing Gabriel and got started on a program that helped right away. The doctor stressed the importance of my posture and proper hand and arm placement."
    Jane Smith / Portland, OR
  • "I have benefited tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Gabriel. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine - golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
