Stem cells are found inside different types of tissues in the human body. As the name suggests, these cells generate from a single stem cell. Cells degenerate and are renewed every day. A lot of research has been conducted using stem cells that are found in the tissues of the bone marrow, brain, blood vessels, skin and skeletal muscles. Studies have shown that stem cells do not serve any particular function in our body, but rather have the power to regenerate the damaged tissues of our body.
Amniotic allograph stem cell therapy
More popularly known as regenerative medicine, amniotic allograph stem cell therapy is one of the most well-known types of therapies and is used to treat various diseases of the blood, tissue and immune system. Amniotic allograph stem cell therapy is used to treat bone diseases, eye injuries, heart diseases, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injuries, Alzheimer’s, and various neurological problems and skin conditions. Amniotic allograph stem cell therapy is also beneficial for patients with severe burns, since it can help to grow skin grafts.
Amniotic allograph stem cell therapy for Joint Pain
As we grow older, our bones become weak and our posture and walking patterns also change. With aging, bone mass reduces and the bones become deficient in calcium and other essential minerals. As previously mentioned, new cells are formed every day, but when we get injured, cells degenerate at a much faster rate, while new cells do not form easily. This means it takes longer for adults to heal as they grow older.
An aging athlete faces a tougher problem, since they make use of their bones much more than the average person. An athlete’s knee bones carry most of the weight while they run and exercise for long hours during practice or competition. Varied amounts of weight is put on the bones during different sports activities and this type of stress affects the bones in the long-run.
Many athletes undergo different types of treatments to reduce the pain and increase the flexibility of their bones. Tissue transplant surgery, microfracture surgery, bone shaving surgery and knee replacement surgery are the most common types of surgeries that are performed on athletes.
However, amniotic allograph stem cell therapy is a relatively new treatment that is being used increasingly by athletes as a way of avoiding surgery and still getting results. The biggest advantage of amniotic allograph stem cell therapy is the low downtime. It takes months to heal if you undergo a traditional knee surgery, but in case of amniotic allograph stem cell therapy, the patient can generally walk on the same day.
For stem cell treatment, stem cells are harvested from the amniotic allograph of healthy mothers undergoing a caesarean section. Neither the baby nor the fetus are contacted or harmed in any way during the harvest. When amniotic allograph stem cell therapy treatment is needed, we carefully injected into the injured part of the body. Once the stem cells are injected, they help to speed up the process of regenerating the cells and also help repair the tendons, ligaments and joints that have been injured.
Amniotic allograph stem cell therapy offers major benefits for the aging athlete. This non-invasive technique helps renew the cells and provides a speedy recovery. Chronic joint pain can be cured using amniotic allograph stem cell therapy and the positive effects of amniotic allograph stem cell therapy last a long time.
