When a joint, organ or tissue has been severely injured, stem cells are used to rejuvenate and strengthen the area. Because stem cells can transform into almost any type of cell, once they are injected into the target area, they begin to morph into the types of cells needed to encourage and promote healing. While some of the damage may remain, the stem cells offered renewed growth of the same types of cells, giving the body an opportunity to function in its original capacity. The rejuvenation process helps to control the amount of scar tissue in the area, as well as reduce chronic inflammation and pain.
Doctors are using stem cell injections in many different types of treatment plans. Stem cells are being used to restore function to the pancreas in an attempt to help control diabetes. They have been used to help strengthen the heart muscle after a heart attack has damaged cells and tissue. Stem cells are also being used after a person experiences a stroke to help restore neurons and regain sensation and movement. In addition to being used for neurological disorders, it has also proven effective when treating constant joint pain. Part of this is the stem cell's ability to create new cartilage and tendon where they have been severely damaged. This helps to support and strengthen the joint and eliminate pain and inflammation.
