Backed by years of research, thousands of happy patients, and faster healing time is the latest in ethical stem cell treatments for foot pain. Stem cell therapy is a miracle in and of itself and it has a future full of healing opportunities once only dreamt about.
The miracle of stem cell therapy
Stem cell therapy is a technique where live birth stem cells are injected into the foot, directly into the area feeling the pain. Live birth stem cells are obtained during the C-Sections of live births, and generated from the placenta. After the birth of the baby the amniotic membrane in the placenta is removed, sterilized and prepared to use. The women who the cells are taken from are screened and tested for any communicable diseases beforehand. It’s important to note that they are not live birth embryos, so there is no controversy using them.
The Swiss army knife of treatments!
Stem cells are a blank slate; they are cells that haven’t quite yet determined their role in the body, so they have the amazing ability to turn into anything. For instance: If you put them where there’s a tendon, whether it’s torn or not, they’ll become a tendon. If they’re placed in a joint where the cartilage is worn down and irritated, it helps regenerate new cartilage and helps heal tissue much quicker.
The treatment is also being used for other problems causing foot pain, such as:
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Arthritis of the first toe joint
Stem cells breathe the new life into our cells that they need as we age.
How does stem cell therapy affect healing times?
When stem cell therapy is used healing occurs twice as fast. Tissues are regenerated and swelling is minimized. This means more range of motion, less post-operative pain and less inflammation.
Future of Stem Cells
Hopefully someday stem cells can be used to do even bigger and better things like re-growing organs, but for the time being they are producing amazing results when used in foot surgery. Patients that have had stem cell treatment heal faster and feel great after surgery.
