Spinal Cord Injury
Can stem cells cure spinal cord injuries? In clinical trials around the world and in treatment facilities like ours, the results of using stem cells to improve the effects of a spinal cord injury are incredibly exciting. Case after case shows improvements like reduction in pain, return of motor function, increased strength, relief of related conditions like sciatica and return of bodily function control.
These improvements are a vast relief to a person who may have been told they will never walk again or recover from the constant pain they suffer.
Because of our location, we can administer far more powerful stem cell therapy than is available in the United States. In the U.S., stem cells must be delivered exactly as harvested, which means the number of cells can’t be increased before delivery. In our country, we can allow these cells to proliferate. Instead of a few million stem cells, you can receive 30, 50 or 100 million cells at about the same cost. When treating spinal cord injuries, this difference has enormous impact.
Harnessing the Power of Stem Cells for Spinal Injuries
At Infinity Medicina Regenerativa our doctors harness the power of mesenchymal stem cells derived from the Wharton’s Jelly of donated umbilical cords for the task of treating spinal cord injuries. That’s because these cells have multiple beneficial effects in this situation.
They not only have the ability to develop into the precise types of cells needed for tissue repair, they also secrete several other substances the body will use as it works to heal the injury. Substances like cytokines, growth factors, collagens, proteins and peptides are in profuse supply in an injured area after stem cell therapy for spinal cord injury is administered. These factors encourage regeneration and repair of the injury.
Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Cord Injuries
Stem cell therapy for spinal cord injuries also utilizes the ability of stem cells to migrate from an uninjured part of the body to an area that is injured. After an injury, the body sends out signals that healing cells are urgently needed and where they are needed. Stem cells are attracted to this signal, which explains some of their unique power to support healing.
In animal tests, stem cells were administered to both animals with spinal cord injuries and those without. Stem cells were found in the spinal cords of the injured animals but not uninjured ones, revealing the way a stem cell will migrate to an area it is needed.
The stem cell is one of medical science’s most remarkable discoveries because of its ability to support the body’s effort to heal injuries. Conventional medical treatment will attempt to treat a spinal cord injury with painkillers, nerve blockers, cortisone injections, physical therapy and finally, if all else fails, surgery. When you receive stem cells for spinal cord injury, you are simply helping the body boost its healing power with the youngest, most potent and adaptable cells in the world.
Stem Cell Treatment
At our stem cell facility our patients can choose from accommodations that range from comfortable to luxurious. To provide you with additional confidence, the World Health Organization (WHO) has ranked healthcare in this country above that of the United States. In a recent report, the WHO ranked Colombia #22 while the United States ranked #37 for quality of healthcare.
