Stem Cell Therapy for Joint Pain

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

One of the reasons for Stem Cell therapy for joint pain can be the build-up of scar tissue and inflammation. This makes recovery from torn rotator cuffs, jumper’s knee, and other joint injuries a painful challenging process often leading to secondary tendon ruptures. New research led by Carnegie’s Chen-Ming Fan and published in Nature Cell Biology reveals the existence of tendon stem cells that could potentially be harnessed to improve tendon healing and even to avoid surgery.

“Tendons are the  that tethers our muscles to our bones,” Fan explained. “They improve our stability and facilitate the transfer of force that allows us to move. But they are also particularly susceptible to injury and damage.”

This is why we treat not only the tendons but also the main goal would be to help heal the overall Join With Stem Cell Therapy for Joint Pain that can be caused by torn tendons.

Unfortunately, once tendons are injured, they rarely fully recover, which can result in limited mobility and require long-term pain management or even surgery. The culprit is fibrous scars, which disrupt the tissue structure of the tendon, But with Stem Cell therapy for Joint Pain, we can now treat the overall knee, ankle, shoulder neck or hips to all heal together with the tendons.

Chen Ming Fan revealed all of the cell types present in the Patellar tendon, found below the kneecap, including previously undefined tendon stem cells.

“Because  rarely heal completely, it was thought that tendon stem cells might not exist,” said lead author Harvey. “Many searched for them to no avail, but our work defined them for the first time.”

Stem cells are “blank” cells associated with nearly every type of tissue, which has not fully differentiated into a specific functionality. They can also self-renew, creating a pool from which newly differentiated  can form to support a specific tissue’s function. For example, muscle stem cells can differentiate into . But until now, stem cells for the tendon were unknown.

Surprisingly, the team’s research showed that both fibrous scar tissue cells and tendon stem cells originate in the same space—the protective cells that surround a tendon. What’s more, these tendon stem cells are part of a competitive system with precursors of fibrous scars, which explains why tendon healing is such a challenge.

The team demonstrated that both tendon stem cells and scar tissue precursor cells are stimulated into action by a protein called platelet-derived -A. When tendon stem cells are altered so that they don’t respond to this growth factor, then only scar tissue and no new tendon cells form after an injury.

“Tendon stem cells exist, but they must outcompete the scar tissue precursors in order to prevent the formation of difficult, fibrous scars,” Fan explained. “Finding a therapeutic way to block the scar-forming cells and enhance the tendon  could be a game-changer when it comes to treating tendon injuries.

Regenerative Medicine Miami Beach

Regenerative medicine is the process of replacing or “regenerating” human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function. This field holds the promise of regenerating damaged tissues and organs in the body by replacing damaged tissue or by stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms to heal tissues or organs. Regenerative medicine also may enable scientists to grow tissues and organs in the laboratory and safely implant them when the body is unable to heal itself. Current studies indicate that patients do benefit from regenerative medicine.

Regenerative Medicine refers to biomedical approaches to clinical therapies that may involve the use of stem cells. Examples include stem cell therapies (the injection of stem cells or progenitor cells); immunomodulation therapy (regeneration by biologically active molecules administered alone or as secretions by infused cells); and tissue engineering (transplantation of laboratory-grown organs and tissues). While covering a broad range of applications, in practice the latter term is closely associated with applications that repair or replace portions of or whole tissues (i.e., bone, cartilage, blood vessels, bladder, skin). Often, the tissues involved require certain mechanical and structural properties for proper functioning. The term has also been applied to efforts to perform specific biochemical functions using cells within an artificially-created support system (e.g., artificial pancreas or liver).

Regenerative medicine has made its way into clinical practice with the use of materials that are able to assist in the healing process by releasing growth factors and cytokines back into the damaged tissue an example  (chronic) wound healing). As additional applications are researched, the fields of regenerative medicine and cellular therapies will continue to merge and expand, potentially treating many disease conditions and improving health for a variety of diseases and health conditions.

At Life Med Regenerative Center we have treated many patients for Joint Pain. They have felt the benefits with one 1 to 3 days according to our reviews. Theoretically, the cells when delivered will adjust inflammation and/or then divide and duplicate themselves and develop into different types of cells. However, for patients with a severe loss of cartilage or no cartilage at all, a cell-based injection is unlikely to create a new joint. Severe loss of cartilage typically leads to bone erosion or bone deformity, so a cell-based injection is highly unlikely to work in terms of reversing those changes. It can, however, improve your symptoms of pain and swelling.

The earlier you can treat someone’s joint pain, the better chance this has of working, making it less painful for the patient, less inflamed, and improve their function.

Stem Cell Therapy in Miami Beach

With so many types of Stem Cells, The Life Med Regenerative Center sincerely believes we have the highest quality of Stem Cell Therapy in Miami Beach. Why do we say this? We offer umbilical cord stem cells.  For ONE, UCSCs is an ethical approach to regenerative medicine. We use the tissue of purely formed umbilical cord stem cells which hold the highest amount of cells per centimeter. (CC’s) This gives you the highest amount of cells to repair your body degenerating cells. These types of cells can transform into any other type and cell and add to the health and recovery of an aging organ, joint, muscle fibers or tendons that need a rejuvenation. This helps your body to repair itself naturally.

Avoid Surgery

If you think of all the possibilities, getting a stem cell injection can help you avoid surgery, relieve your pain, repair aging joints, strengthen muscle tissues, increase regeneration in any area of your body. To avoid surgery would be worth it alone. Surgery can be a risky procedure, complications can happen not to mention the pain, taking pain medicine and recovery time. Why not try Stem Cell Therapy in Miami Beach first? If you do have an emergency and surgery is required then Stem Cell Therapy can also help you with the recovery process. As your body is trying to heal itself, our Regenerative Medicine helps aid and assist in the recovery process.

Other Types of Stem Cells

Embryonic stem cells are obtained from the inner cell mass of the blastocyst, a mainly hollow ball of cells that, in the human, forms three to five days after an egg cell is fertilized by a sperm. A human blastocyst is about the size of the dot above this “i.”

We don’t recommend these types of cells because of unethical practices.

Tissue-specific stem cells (also referred to as somatic or adult stem cells) are more specialized than embryonic stem cells. Typically, these stem cells can generate different cell types for the specific tissue or organ in which they live.

Tissue-specific stem cells can be difficult to find in the human body, and they don’t seem to self-renew in culture as easily as embryonic stem cells do. However, the study of these cells has increased our general knowledge about normal development, what changes in aging, and what happens with injury and disease.

MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS You may hear the term “mesenchymal stem cell” or MSC to refer to cells isolated from stroma, the connective tissue that surrounds other tissues and organs. Cells by this name are more accurately called “stromal cells” by many scientists. The first MSCs were discovered in the bone marrow and were shown to be capable of making bone, cartilage and fat cells. Since then, they have been grown from other tissues, such as fat and cord blood. Various MSCs are thought to have stem cells, and even immunomodulatory, properties and are being tested as treatments for a great many disorders, but there is little evidence to date that they are beneficial. Scientists do not fully understand whether these cells actually stem cells or what types of cells they are capable of generating. They do agree that not all MSCs are the same and that their characteristics depend on where in the body they come from and how they are isolated and grown.

Induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells are cells that have been engineered in the lab by converting tissue-specific cells, such as skin cells, into cells that behave like embryonic stem cells. IPS cells are critical tools to help scientists learn more about normal development and disease onset and progression, and they are also useful for developing and testing new drugs and therapies.
