Regenerative cell therapy is a type of treatment that aims to repair damaged and lost cells through the use of mesenchymal cells, or stem cells. These cells can become other types of cells, particularly ones that repair themselves either slowly or not at all, such as specific tissue or organ cells. Mesenchymal cells are commonly found in bone marrow, but the collection procedure is often painful for the patient. These cells are also found in Wharton’s Jelly, a substance found in umbilical cords, which is safely and ethically collected from scheduled cesarean births.
What can you expect from regenerative cell therapy? You can expect pain relief that lasts, being that it aims at repairing rather than just masking pain. This means that regenerative cell therapy offers a more complete form of recovery where the pain is more permanently relieved. For example, a type of pain that regenerative cell therapy can successfully treat is knee pain due to a lack of cartilage in the knee. This cartilage, if depleted or damaged, has a hard time recovering on its own, but regenerative cell therapy can be used to repair the cartilage. Regenerative cell therapy is not only a natural way to relieve pain, but it also cuts down on recovery time that may go along with surgery.
