Stem Cell Therapy
How Stem Cell Therapy Works
Adult stem cells are generally inactive until they detect damaged tissue. This will lead to a response by the body's undifferentiated cells to the injured area. Unfortunately, the body’s own healing response is sometimes not enough and a a targeted dose of stem cells is required. The high concentrations stem cells used in stem cell therapy allow the tissues to heal without the use of drugs, surgery or other high risk and expensive treatments. Stem cell therapy allows a body to undergo it's natural healing processes but at much faster rate. Stem cells can trigger the development of a vast number of types of tissue including cartilage, bone, tendon, and various other connective tissues.
