Have you considered stem cells for neuropathy? When you use the right type of cellular therapy, you discover an all-natural way to treat chronic nerve conditions.
Neuropathy, also known as nerve damage or peripheral neuropathy, refers to a variety of conditions that can lead to damage of the peripheral nerves. Neuropathic pain is caused by damage or disease affecting the somatosensory nervous system. Peripheral neuropathy occurs when there is damage to the peripheral nervous system, This causes a disruption of communication between the brain, spine and nerves.
Our nervous system is an intricately woven network that connects our brain to the spine, organs, skin, and muscles. When that communication is not properly working, abnormal sensations begin.
Regenerative medicine treatments have incredible potential for treating peripheral neuropathy. Regenerative cellular tissue can transform into the cells your body needs to heal and be pain-free. This is often confused with “stem cell therapy,” but the two are not the same.
While stem cell therapies are a natural medicine approach that has tremendous potential, there are a few things to keep in mind when using two popular types: adipose tissue and bone marrow stem cells. The main concern regarding the use of an adult’s own stem cells result from problems associated with growing older.
Adipose tissue stem cells used in stem cell therapy from the patient’s body can contain toxins. They have likely sustained damage from the normal wear and tear of growing older.
The procedure for withdrawing bone marrow is considered very painful and can create vulnerability to infection, just to harvest cells that may be degraded with time. Because of this, our doctors prefer to use young, donated cellular treatments from Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells to treat chronic pain.
Wharton’s jelly is abundant in young healing cells and active growth factors, and it is safely and ethically collected from umbilical cords. This procedure takes place at the time of birth without causing pain or harm to the mother or child.
Treatments containing regenerative cells are considered a safe and effective form of regenerative medicine. We use young, healthy regenerative cells to harness the healing powers of the growth factors and other naturally occurring components they provide.
Regenerative Medicine for Neuropathy
Mesenchymal cells have been indicated as a new emerging regenerative therapy for neuropathy because of their multipotency and their paracrine secretion of angiogenic factors and neurotrophic factors. Mesenchymal cells have the capacity to self-renew and the potential to differentiate into a variety of cell types. These include bone cells, cartilage cells, muscle cells and fat cells. Mesenchymal stem cells have remarkable immunosuppressive properties; they secrete cytokines and immunomodulatory substances.
Another form of regenerative medicine that is used for neuropathy is platelet-rich plasma. Permanent healing is possible with this natural and non-surgical injection. Platelet rich plasma therapy uses a concentration of your blood platelets in a small volume of plasma. Our doctors create the PRP injections from a sample of your blood, which is then spun to separate all of the components. Platelets release essential growth factors that restore and heal damaged cells and tissues. This form of regenerative cell therapy heals and regenerates damaged nerves for an all-natural form of pain relief.
