We use umbilical cord stem cells for stem cell therapy in Kansas City and Lee’s Summit MO
There are different types of stem cells in the body, but at Rejuvenate Mind-Body Wellness Center, we use umbilical cord stem cells for stem cell therapy. These stem cells are donated from live, healthy births. They are then carefully screened to ensure they healthy and free of diseases before they are used in treatment.
Once the cells are cleared for use, our medical doctor and nurse practitioner will administer the injections. They’ll inject the cells directly into the area that is causing you pain. These cells are smart and will zero in on the area that needs them. Then, they’ll get to work repairing the damage and relieving your pain.
There are many benefits to using umbilical cord stem cells
Patients often want to know why we use umbilical cord stem cells instead of the patient’s own cells for stem cell therapy. There are a few reasons for this.
First, harvesting your own cells can be pricey and painful. Removing stem cells from your body requires a procedure that can be painful.Using your own cells are also age-dependent. If the cells are older, the results are not as good as fresh, young, umbilical cord cells.
Second, these cells are undifferentiated and immunonaive making them ideal to use in stem cell therapy. The body will not recognize these as foreign which helps prevent the body from rejecting them. They are also able to become any kind of cell they need to be. So, they’ll adapt to the area they are injected into and working to repair.
Typically, only one treatment is needed
A great benefit of stem cell therapy is that most patients only need one injection to find relief from their pain. About 20% of patients experience significant relief in the first 48 hours after injection of the stem cells, but results take time due to cell replication. Though relief is not instantaneous, once your cells go through a complete cycle, you’ll find long term relief from your pain with just one injection.
