Stem cell therapy is a specialized treatment aimed at repairing diseased, dysfunctional, or damaged tissue through the use of stem cells. Stem cells are highly specialized cells found in your body that have the ability to transform into the type of cell your body needs. In essence, stem cells know what you need and where you need it, and they go there and become it.
The providers at Williamson County Integrative Medicine use mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) for stem cell therapy. MSC cells have the ability to hone in on an injured area and transform into exactly what your body needs. While your body naturally produces MSC, production declines significantly from birth to adulthood.
When injected into the diseased portion of your body, stem cells transform themselves into the cells your body needs to promote healing and restore function, whether it’s new tissue, bone, blood vessels, or nerve endings. Researchers are only beginning to understand the power of stem cell therapy and the potential for its use in health care.
In addition to helping you heal, stem cell therapy also offers other benefits when compared to some of your other treatment options. Benefits of stem cell therapy include:
Stem cell therapy may also help you avoid surgery.
The providers at Williamson County Integrative Medicine use stem cell therapy as a treatment for many chronic conditions, including those that often cause chronic pain. In fact, your provider may recommend stem cell therapy as part of your treatment plan for pain management.
