An Overview of Stem Cell Therapy
Stem Cell Therapy is a rapidly growing treatment option in the field of regenerative medicine. As the research has continued to grow, so has the use of stem cell therapy. One of the most common types of stem cell therapy is from umbilical fluids. These are referred to as mesenchymal stem cells.
In stem cell therapy, stem cells are used to replace a part of the body that has been injured or has been afflicted with a disease. Stem cells are incredibly young cells and have the ability to become a wide variety of tissue types. Because of this, stem cells promote the remodeling, growth, and healing of tissues in lieu of scar formation.
Furthermore, stem cells also have a very low immunogenic signal, meaning that they are unlikely to cause rejection in the human body. This has tremendous benefits for the health of the patient and contributes to a more complete recovery. Whether it is bone, ligament, tendon, muscle, or some other tissue type, stem cells are able to provide a unique healing opportunity.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP0, which has also been called autologous conditioned plasma, has been used in the treatment of a variety of injuries and has been shown to be helpful in the healing process. This is because platelets and plasma play a natural, integral role in the recovery following an injury.
In this treatment process, red blood cells are placed in a centrifuge, which separates out the various cells by weight. After this, concentrated platelets are removed along with plasma. Next, this platelet and plasma concentrate is injected into the injured site to assist with the regenerative process following an injury.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy has been used in the treatment of a variety of injuries including tendinitis, rotator cuff injuries, osteoarthritis, and even some surgical procedures. Over the years, platelet-rich plasma therapy’s applications have increased because of the benefits that patients can enjoy.
