Get Relief from Chronic Conditions
with Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy is a type of regenerative therapy that uses the patient's own stem cells to regenerate new tissues and repair physical damage. Here at West Knoxville Medical and Chiropractic in Knoxville, TN, we are here to help you understand how stem cell therapy works and how it can help your body repair itself without surgery or medication. Our chiropractor is trained in the practice of stem cell therapies and how they're applied to your benefit. Here's a look at how stem cell therapy works.
What Is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cell therapy is a regenerative therapy that seeks to repair the damage that's proved resistant to all previous attempts to halt the problem. A patient's own stem cells are drawn from the body through liposuction and isolated for re-injection into the troublesome area. Body fat is full of stem cells that have a characteristic known as multipotential differentiation. This means stem cells derived from adipose tissue have the ability to change into a cell that the body needs to repair internal damage.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
Once the stem cells are separated from the body fat, they're cleaned and prepared for reinjection into the body, or more specifically, into the area of trouble. The concept behind stem cell therapy is the body doesn't produce enough stem cells as it ages and it can't repair itself like it once did. Tapping into the body's store of stem cells, then injecting them into a joint or other sources of pain has the effect of providing an abundance of stem cells into a single location and giving the body's ability to repair itself a major boost.
