Getting to know the benefits of stem cell therapy can help you make an informed decision about whether or not it is the right treatment option for your particular ailments. At Waterfront Health & Wellness, we offer a wide range of services that are designed to help relieve your symptoms, including stem cell therapy.

1. Treats Orthopedic Injuries

Orthopedic practices have begun to shift towards using Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) to help the body regrow orthopedic tissues. This is because MSCs are capable of differentiating and forming new tissues that make up muscle, bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and adipose tissue.

Bone marrow stem cells can also be used for certain types of orthopedic care, such as for cartilage replacement, bone repair, and soft-tissue repair. Injecting bone marrow stem cells can help reduce chronic pain, heal stubborn injuries, and improve overall functionality.

2. Treats Cardiovascular Diseases

Over the years, research has shown that adult bone marrow stem cells can be used to help repair heart and blood vessels, combating common cardiovascular diseases. While more research still needs to be completed in order to assess the overall effectiveness and safety of this approach, stem cells have been shown to help with:

  • Stimulating blood vessel tissue repair and growth
  • Growing new tissue by generating specialized muscle cells of the heart
  • Decreasing the formation of scar tissue
  • Restoring blood flow
  • Restoring blood pressure capacity
  • Restoring normal cardiac output by decreasing over stretching of cardiac cells
  • Improving formation of new capillaries

3. Helps Speed Up the Healing Process

Stem cell therapy can be used to help encourage the growth of healthy new skin tissue, stimulate hair growth after incisions have been made, improve collagen production, and help replace scar tissue with new, healthy tissue.

Stem cells can help speed up the healing process by increasing the skin’s concentration of collagen, which works to strengthen and tighten the damaged area. This process can also be used to treat connective tissue injuries related to collagen or cartilage loss, including osteoarthritis or the overuse of ligaments and tendons.
