Stem cell treatment is used to treat many different issues
Stem cells are used to treat a variety of issues for patients in Kansas City and Lee’s Summit, MO and across the country. These little parts of the body, work to provide long term pain relief for people who struggle with pain stemming from old injuries, or who have diseases like osteoporosis and disc degeneration.
At Rejuvenate Mind-Body Wellness Center, we use umbilical stem cells to perform our stem cell therapy procedures. But, many people don’t know why we use those types of cells and how the treatment works. Learn more below.
Stem cells are smart and work to repair the damaged area
Stem cell treatments provide patients with long term pain relief. When you have this treatment, we’ll inject the stem cells into the area that is causing you pain. Once injected, these cells know where to go and will race to the damaged area and set to work. They’ll start to multiply and repair the damage, which gives you long term relief from your pain.
Most patients only require one injection to see results, but, they won’t see results right away. The new stem cells need time to start to work. So, it can take a few months before patients see full results, though some may start to feel better within a month or two.
Umbilical stem cells are used to save patients time and money
At Rejuvenate Mind-Body Wellness Center we use umbilical stem cells that are harvested from live births. Many patients want to know why we use these stem cells, instead of stem cells from their body. There are a few reasons for this.
First, harvesting stem cells from your body can be expensive. Second, it can be painful to have stem cells harvested. By using donated cells that were not painful to harvest, we save you going through pain and an additional procedure. Third, these cells are undifferentiated and immunonaive, meaning your body won’t see them as foreign so it won’t attack the new cells.
These stem cells are carefully screened to ensure they are free of diseases, just like blood donations are screened. They are also donated from full term, live, healthy births.
