Stem Cell Therapy for Cellular Regeneration: 101
By: Dr. Swetlic, DC
Our patients receive the most effective, safe, and advanced regenerative stem cell therapy available. Our unique umbilical cord stem cell therapy activates the body’s own self-healing mechanisms for cellular/tissue regeneration and repair.
- Human umbilical cord blood stem cells contain mesenchymal stem cells and garner optimal regenerative results.
- Stem cell therapy is a safe option and does not require surgery. Patients recover faster and there is less potential for complications.
- Results have proven to far exceed the common surgery-based autologous procedures.
- There are no negative side effects and the cells are undifferentiated, therefore the body does not reject them. Umbilical cord stem cells have been used for over thirty years to help reduce the chance of organ transplant rejection.
Umbilical Cord Derived Stem Cells
Not all stem cells are created equal. Our medical team utilizes umbilical cord-derived stem cells. Mesenchymal stem cells from the umbilical cord blood are known to have three very important properties: they help reduce inflammation; modulate the immune system; and secrete factors that helps tissue to regenerate. Umbilical cord stem cells are less mature than other cells, so the body’s immune system is unable to recognize them as foreign and there has never been a single instance rejection. Umbilical cord stem cells also proliferate more efficiently than older cells, such as those found in the bone marrow and therefore, they are considered to be more potent.
What are mesenchymal stem cells (MSC’s)?
In scientific terms, they are multipotent stromal (connective tissue) cells that stimulates your body to differentiate them into a variety of cell types, including neurons, cartilage, fat, blood (red, white or platelet blood cells), bone, and muscle. Multipotent means they can develop into multiple types of cells, but divide a limited number of times (a built in safety mechanism). They are messengers that signal your body to activate self-healing and regeneration. The MSC’s themselves do not create new tissue or healing, they signal your body to activate a cascade of cellular functions. As we age, we have fewer mesenchymal stem cells, therefore getting a boost of day “0” MSC’s may help many conditions. Umbilical Cord Stem Cells contain a small, but significant amount of mesenchymal stem cells that signal self-healing and regeneration.
How do they work?
Human umbilical cord stem cells have an innate intelligence and activate the body’s own self-healing mechanisms. They seek out inflammation and degenerations. In other words, they give your body a boost of fresh, “day 0”, very young stem cells to help with regeneration. Our stem cells age with us and we lose a significant percentage over time. That’s why as we age. our body does not recover at the same rate as it did when we were younger.
Safe and regulated
Umbilical cord stem cells reside in the umbilical cords from healthy newborn babies and healthy mothers. Like all post-natal cells, they are categorized as “adult” stem cells. The umbilical cord tissue is donated by pre-screened and tested healthy mothers and healthy babies in the United States. We abide by the most stringent FDA and medical guidelines.
We understand all of these terms can be overwhelming, but the bottom line is that you could be a candidate for Stem Cell Treatments. We are offering a FREE stem cell consultation here at Swetlic Chiropractic & Physical Therapy. We invite you to contact us today at 740-392-1407 and schedule yours.
