There is a significant body of research and science behind the use of stem cell therapy as way to assist the human body to literally heal itself. However, there is also a lot of misunderstanding about the technology interfering or impeding an individual who may be considering this choice.
Adult stem cells are not found in all tissues in the body. In our specialized labs and treatment facilities in Houston, TX we focus in on the adult stem cells found in highest concentration in fatty issues as well as in bone marrow. Fatty tissue, while having a lower concentration of adult stem cells, allows for the best options for harvesting.
Adult Stem Cells
Adult stem cells are not developed from embryonic stem cells. In fact, adult stem cells can be harvested from the individual seeking treatment through a simple, pain-free procedure.
What wasn’t known even a few years ago is adult stem cells and stem cell therapy can be used in the development of virtually all types of adult cells. In this way the adult stem cells closely mimic the properties which originally made embryonic cells so interesting for early research. With this new discovery, adult stem cells have moved to the forefront in many research studies.
These cells, once harvested in our laboratory under strict protocols and procedures, are reintroduced into the body through a simple injection. These cells, when used in stem cell therapies, actually generate or build healthy cells to replace diseased, distress or defective cells.
Since the stem cells reintroduced to the body are not foreign materials there are very few if any possible side effects with the treatment. They replace the damaged cells responsible for the progressive natural of various conditions such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s, stroke, cancer and osteoarthritis, providing relief from symptoms as well as pain.
With this range of opportunities for treatment, and even more under current research, treatment through stem cell th erapies becomes more and more a mainstream consideration for our patients in the Houston area.
Stem cells have also been found to be highly beneficial for conditions such as back and neck pain, fibromyalgia, sciatica and other pain related injuries and diseases.
The increasing knowledge and research-based efficacy of stem cell therapies in Houston, TX and around the country has opened up a range of treatment options for patients not available even a few years ago.
