Benefits and Uses Stem Cell Therapy

by Allison Guyen Foot & Ankle Institute
Stem cell therapy has tremendous potentials in the field of medical science. This domain of science is still evolving while in some parts of the world stem cell therapy is still in its infancy.

What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Utilization of stem cells for therapeutic purposes is known as stem cell therapy. The stem cells are taken from bone marrow, brain, blood vessels etc. Stem cells have the ability to proliferate into any type of cell like skin, nerve or transform into an organ under required conditions.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Stem Cell Therapy
Since the research regarding stem cell therapy is still going on, there have been pros and cons to it. Following are some points supporting and opposing cell based therapy:

Pros
  • Can turn into any kind of cells
  • No immune rejection (in some cases)
  • Easy to isolate
  • Proliferative in nature

Cons
  • Can face immune rejection (in some cases)
  • Ethical issues are concerned with stem cell therapy
  • Differentiate into inadequate cell types
  • Can turn into cancer cells

Stem Cell Therapy for Shoulder
Every day our body cells go through a regenerative and degenerative procedure. New cells are born from stem cells as older cells die. It is important to know how the patient benefits of stem cell therapy for shoulder. This regenerative procedure ensures relief from shoulder injury or pain from osteoarthritis.

How Cell Based Therapy works?
Cell therapy uses the prime advantage of the body i.e self repair. Such therapies are known to treat orthopedic joints and injuries, muscular injuries, wounds, ligament injuries, arthritis, back pain, along with reversing anti-aging and cosmetic enhancement.

Cortisone VS Stem Cell Therapy

Cortisone provides temporary relief from the pain and diseases, but there is no permanent solution to the problem. But stem cell treatment thrives to resolve the issue and cures the disease instead of providing temporary relief. The tissue damaged is regenerated so that a permanent solution has been achieved to the problem. There are many foot and ankle conditions that are resolved using cell stem cell treatment. Some of them are:
  • Fractures
  • Arthritis
  • Ankle Instability
  • Peroneal tendon tear or split
  • Ligament sprain or tear
  • Sub-talar arthritis or instability
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome
  • Plantar fasciitis/Heel pain
  • Scar tissue
  • Diabetic wounds

Stem Cell Banks
The world is gaining knowledge on a fast pace and intelligent and concerned parents are now already storing the stem cells of the new born babies in stem cell banks. This is an initiative to secure their future against any fatal incident that might occur where organ regeneration might be the solution. Stem cell is definitely the way of life.
