Stem cell therapy is a process that involves using harvested stem cells to treat an existing health issue or in some cases prevent an issue from developing. Along with applications that have become common, ongoing research is pointing to more ways to use this form of therapy to treat other health conditions. If you are suffering with any of the following, there’s a chance that stem cell therapy would improve your condition.
Repairing Weakened or Damaged Bones
One of the more common applications of stem cell therapy has to do with restoring the function of bones by means of a bone marrow transplant. In this scenario, the cells are introduced into the remaining marrow after the diseased marrow is removed. Doing so triggers the growth of more healthy marrow and also aids in helping breaks and cracks to heal.
Strengthening the Heart
Cardiovascular issues can also be helped using stem cell therapy. The introduction of the new cells can help the heart to generate new healthy tissue and restore the level of function that was lost. This is important since a heart that is incapable of pumping blood properly can lead to a number of other health issues. We use this therapy to treat congestive heart failure, specifically.
Restoring a Damaged Immune System
The body’s immune system is the first line of defense against a number of health issues. When it’s compromised in some manner, your risk of developing a chronic or terminal illness is higher. By utilizing stem cell therapy to repair your immune system, you will feel better in general and your body will be in a better position to fend off everything from the common cold to developing some type of cancer.
Promoting Healing of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries of all types have a negative impact on the quality of life. A number of people have experienced excellent results after undergoing stem cell therapy. Their injuries seem to heal faster and they recover a greater range of motion. As with other studies involving stem cells and their use in treating ailments, the impact on all sorts of issues with the back, the spinal column, and even the connections to the brain are in progress.
