Inflammation is a major problem for millions of men and women in the U.S., and in Phoenix, AZ, many more could be suffering because of the extreme heat. The symptoms are often aches and pain, swelling, and redness, which is the result of an overabundance of inflammation, which is triggered by toxins in your diet and in the environment around you. Inflammation serves a valuable purpose when the body uses it to accelerate healing, but when it builds up because of an injury or toxic invasions of germs, there is a problem. Stem cell therapy has been found to be a successful solution and is now available to the general public, including those in Phoenix, AZ.
Inflammation and Stem Cells
Without getting too technical, it’s easy to see how stem cells can improve inflammation that has overdeveloped in your joints and other strategic areas in the body. Your system naturally tries to kick out toxins or germs that enter the body, but when the inflammation begins to attack your body, more inflammation is created, and the injury gets worse. This excess inflammation causes painful symptoms, but an injection of stem cells has the ability to rescue the damaged cells from cell death. They alter the immune response, which starts the process to heal the wound. This turns inflammation into recovery.
Stem cells can be used to clinically replace or repair damaged tissue because stem cells are uncoded, and wherever they are injected, they reproduce that tissue. So, they multiply tissue cells, muscle or bone, whatever is needed. Research has found that inflammatory conditions can be turned into self-repair cells because stem cells are focused on one area of the injection. They are anti-inflammatory in nature, so they migrate towards the tissue that is surrounded by inflammation. Then, they release a chemical agent that initiates a response from the immune system, which is the defender and healing system of the body and the inflammation decreases.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
Stem cells have been used for decades by surgeons to assist in healing the wounds created during surgery, and it’s the same process when used in joints, strained muscles, or ligament tears where there are damaged cells. The effectiveness of therapy depends on the adequate supply of original cells in that area, and typically our skilled doctors can determine if you would make a good candidate for treatment with a single x-ray.
