Stem Cell Therapy and How it Works
Stem Cells are the cellular building blocks of the 220 cell types within the body. The Stem Cells used by Spring Creek Medical Center of Logan, UT remain in an undifferentiated state and therefore are capable of becoming any tissue, organ or cell type within the body. Fetal Stem Cells also release Cytokines. Cytokines are cell-derived, hormone-like polypeptides that regulate cellular replication, differentiation, and activation.
Cytokines can bring normal cells and tissues to a higher level of function, allowing the body’s own healing mechanisms to partner with the transplanted Stem Cells for repair and new growth. Following the treatment, the Stem Cells will travel throughout the body, detecting damaged cells and tissue and attempts to restore them. The Stem Cells stimulate existing normal cells and tissues to operate at a higher level of function, boosting the body’s own repair mechanisms to aid in the healing process. These highly adaptive cells then remain in the body, continually locating and repairing any damage they encounter.
Why Choose Stem Cell Therapy?
Adipose tissue stem cells, cortisone injections, and other medicines offer a temporary cure to common injuries and medical conditions; while stem cells from umbilical cord blood and tissue have the capability to restore the regenerative tissue and bone back to its original condition.
How quickly will I see results after the Stem Cell Treatment?
Every person is of course different. Each of our body’s healing mechanisms work at a unique pace as they are influenced by many factors. Commonly, significant positive changes are seen between three to six months post treatment. At times, these changes can occur in as little as weeks or even days after receiving treatment.
