Stem Cell Therapy
Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy Q & A
What are stem cells?
Stem cells are specialized cells that are present throughout your body. These cells aren’t differentiated, so they can turn into new stem cells or specific cells that your body needs in a particular area for healing, such as heart cells, connective tissue, or nerve cells. Stem cells serve as an initial repair system in most tissues, including cartilage, tendons, muscles, and organs.
Stem cells are useful in regenerative treatments to help you heal from injury, osteoarthritis, and some autoimmune conditions.
What is regenerative stem cell therapy?
The team at Turtle Healing Band Clinic obtains natural stem cells from your blood. They may also use umbilical cord blood stem cells, depending on your personal condition and need.
The stem cells are then injected into painful areas, such as your skin or joints, to stimulate regeneration and growth. Stem cell therapy shows promise in helping people recover from strokes, manage diabetes, and overcome spinal cord injuries.
How does stem cell therapy work?
Regenerative stem cell therapy helps your body naturally repair damaged, degenerated, or injured tissue. The treatment is especially helpful when you have a condition that breaks the body down, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, diabetes, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
What are exosomes?
In regenerative stem cell therapy, the Turtle Healing Band Clinic team may also use exosomes to promote healing. Exosomes are bodies produced by cells that facilitate communication between cells and enhance the effectiveness of stem cell therapy.
What is platelet-rich plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a newer, but incredibly effective, treatment to promote your body’s healing. A component in your blood, platelets contain numerous healing capabilities.
To create PRP, a sample of your blood is spun in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelet count. It’s then injected into areas of injury or degeneration. The platelets help heal any injured tissue and release growth factors to help your body create new collagen and fibroblasts.
