Cerebral Palsy is a group of disorders caused by abnormal brain function that often occurs before birth. It affects an individual’s motor abilities, causing muscle weakness, poor coordination, and, in some cases, seizures. Symptoms can vary from person to person.
Recent research has indicated that stem cell therapy may be of aid to those with cerebral palsy.
Stem cells are known to be rich with growth factors and peptides. This has been found helpful in restoring the lives of many people afflicted with various conditions. Stem cell therapy has shown positive effects on patients who have cerebral palsy. Stem cells can potentially restore some function to the patient, tackling the source of the condition. This form of treatment can heal damaged tissues and may restore function, resolving the intensity of some symptoms associated with cerebral palsy.
There is no cure for cerebral palsy. However, stem cells can help at the source: the brain.
In cerebral palsy, it is the brain that is sending signals that cause muscles to stiffen or spasm. With stem cells, growth factors can be brought to the brain to help repair and recover the damaged tissue.
Stem cells are abundant with growth factors, allowing them to promote regeneration in damaged areas. Stem cell injections can directly target the damaged sites, getting to work on recovering the tissue.
The stem cells in this therapy are extracted from umbilical cords. The umbilical cords used are from healthy, consenting mothers—leaving this process ethical and safe!
The stem cells are robust and immune-privileged. This means they have no immune system developed, resulting in little to no risk of rejection from the patient’s body. The regenerative properties from these young stem cells open the potential for relief of symptoms.
Stem cell therapies are limited in the United States, normally only available via clinic trials. However, our doctors administer stem cells that have been given time to regenerate, maximizing the efficiency of each stem cell treatment. Patients receive millions of stem cells at once. These injections can work to heal damaged tissue and potentially restore function.
