Stem Cell Therapy With The Wellness Center PDX In Portland, OR
Stem cell therapy, a type of regenerative medicine, is growing in popularity because of this technology's effectiveness for treating various joint disorders. A single stem cell is a simple cell that has yet to be "assigned" or "delegated" as a special type of cell in the body. This cell will go on to divide into additional cells called daughter cells. The daughter cell then has the potential to either become a specialized cell within the body, or it will become another new stem cell. In a laboratory, these stem cells can be collected to treat diseased or damaged tissue in the body. Tissue cells that have become damaged can be replaced with new stem cells. We proudly provide stem cell therapy services here at The Wellness Center PDX in Portland, OR.
Conditions Treated with Stem Cell Therapy
Patients that suffer from soft tissue injuries or have degenerative joint conditions can benefit from stem cell therapy. During the procedure, a frozen amniotic membrane from a donor is inserted into the damaged or diseased area. This injection contains a compound of growth hormone factor, cytokines, hyaluronic acid, joint lubricant, and of course stem cells all of which is found naturally occurring in the body. When the new stem cells are injected they quickly become the type of tissue cells that are needed in that particular area. The new stem cells quickly regenerate and help to repair the damaged tissue.
Benefits to Stem Cell Therapy
The biggest benefit of using stem cell therapy to treat damaged joints is that the procedure consists of a single injection and is noninvasive. When compared to traditional surgery the recovery time is infinitely shorter. Patients also find they recover more quickly because the injections do not contain foreign medications that the body can often have difficulty responding to. Not only is the damaged joint repaired, but the stem cells promote new tissue growth to make the joint stronger. Injections are quick, most often as short as 15 minutes, and nearly 85% of patients only require one injection to reduce pain in the joint.
