Stem cells are defined as cells that can be regenerated into any kind of cells. This is the reason why stem cell treatment is done on a range of diseases or conditions. If you have an injury to your knees that causes pain, the stem cells treatment is conducted to regenerate the tissues that were worn out and then healing the portion. Note that the stem cells are the only human body cells that have the capability of regenerating into other cells. The stem cell treatment will target healing of conditions that affect muscles, bones, the cartilages and other related illnesses due to the self-morphing potential that they have.
Stem cells are mostly concentrated in the bone marrow, umbilical cod, body fat reserve, dental pulp and actually a host of other tissues types. To extract the stem cells, a painless process is conducted on the patient’s body itself. A required amount of stem cells is extracted, and then it is put through a number of preparation procedures. The procedures will depend on the nature of stem cell treatment to be carried out and also the physician. Once the solution is ready for use, it will be injected back into the patient’s affected area. This is the stem cell treatment procedure, and therefore there is not much pain.
The advantage of this procedure is that the results will be felt almost immediately after the injection. After the stem cell treatment has been conducted, the patient is free to leave and continue with his activities. Therefore there is minimal downtime once it is administered. This is one of the reasons why this treatment method is preferred than the traditional surgery procedures.
