What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem Cell Therapy is a form of treatment used to treat degenerative diseases, injuries and pain. This treatment uses stem cells extracted from the blood, tissue or bone marrow of a donor (embryonic or adult) to treat joint deterioration and pain. The treatment works by injecting separated mesenchymal stem cells and other beneficial factors directly into the patients’ joints to relieve their pain.
Different Types of Stem Cell Therapies
There are two types of stem cells, allogeneic cells, which are donated by an individual; and autologous cells, which are derived from the patient.
At Cherry Street Health Group, we offer:
Amniotic fluid is extremely rich in proteins, cytokines, stem cells and other significant compounds, boosting the capability of healing potential. This nutrient rich fluid can minimize inflammation and is naturally regenerative. Amniotic stem cells are obtained from C-section deliveries from normal, full-term pregnancies and frozen in vials for future procedures. Donors that consent to the use of their amniotic fluid are carefully screened prior to their use. Stem cells from amniotic fluid can replace damaged or poor connective tissue.
Avoid invasive surgery with Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy. The pharmaceutical approach to these conditions is still not effective for some 20% to 40% of those suffering from arthritis or other degenerative joint conditions. According to the National Institute of Health, Stem Cell Therapy provides a promising alternative to surgery by promoting safe and natural healing. The less invasive approach Stem Cell Therapy offers attracts thousands each year. Cherry Street Health Group is one of the few clinics in the country to offer Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy. With our convenient location in Danvers, we are ready to get you back to the activity levels you desire.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is an alternative therapy using your own blood to promote healing to damaged or injured tissues in the body. Since patients are using their own blood, risk of treatment rejection or negative reaction is highly minimized. Learn more about PRP.
What are the Advantages to Stem Cell Therapy?
There are multiple advantages to Stem Cell therapy. It is an outpatient non-surgical injection which allows patients to return to their normal activity on the same day. This eliminates any painful and lengthy recovery that would result from a surgical procedure. It also decreases the risk for infections following a surgical procedure. This treatment also promotes recovery for damaged joints. It is not just a temporary fix for pain. The cells injected into the joints promote regularity within the cells and each stem cell works to replace and repair the damaged tissue. Pain and swelling normally decrease due to this therapy.
