At Regenerative Sports, Spine & Spa we are keeping track of research for neurological disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s and stroke recovery that work to repair and replace damaged cells and calm inflamed tissues, which may help to restore normal functionality.
Neurological disorders that may be treated in the future include the following:
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a long-lasting immune mediated disease that affects 400,000 people in the U.S. and over 2.3 million people worldwide. It occurs when the body has an abnormal response of the immune system and attacks the central nervous system, which consists of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. Stem cells can work to repair damaged cells – these new cells can become replacement cells to possibly restore normal functionality. Regenerative medicine also has the advantage of little to no side effects, compared with conventional medications. It uses the patient’s own stem cells or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to restore and begin to rebuild damaged cells and inflamed tissues.
Over 60,000 new cases of Parkinson’s are being diagnosed each year. It leads to progressive deterioration of motor function, and the disease progresses slowly in most people who develop it. It’s caused when a person’s brain slowly stops producing a neurotransmitter called dopamine, this leaves patients with limited muscle control along with numerous side effects. Regenerative medicine is a promising treatment for Parkinson’s. It would theoretically work to repair damaged cells by detecting cytokine signals released by damaged dopamine producing neurons and become replacement cells to restore this function. The number of stem cell treatments may vary since everyone responds at a different rate of cellular repair and replacement. Regenerative medicine also has the advantage of little to no side effects, compared with conventional medications, since it uses the patient’s own stem cells or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to restore and begin to rebuild damaged cells and inflamed tissues.
Someone in the U.S. has a stroke every 40 seconds, and once stroke symptoms start, every minute counts, so it’s vital to seek immediate medical attention, or it can be fatal. Stroke accounts for 1 out of every 20 deaths in the U.S., according to the American Stroke Association. Seeking medical attention immediately after stroke symptoms is crucial to survival, but seeking therapy right after a stroke is essential to recovery. If you or a loved one have suffered from a stroke, following up with stem cell therapy immediately – in the first 36 – 48 hours – after hospitalization and stroke symptoms surface has proven to be crucial to long-term recovery and regaining mobility again.
Stem cell therapy research has shown incredible promise and results in helping reduce destructive inflammation and immune response to stroke injury, and risk for serious infections – and those benefits continue for months after the injection. Post-stroke inflammation is a response that prevents natural healing in the body, and researchers have found that when patients receive cell therapy, they had lower blood levels of inflammatory signals – called cytokines vs. stroke patients who did not receive stem cell therapy. We offer regenerative therapies for stroke recovery, including stem cell, exosomes, and other sources of growth factors to naturally reduce and calm inflammation and heal damaged tissue.
At Regenerative Sports, Spine & Spa, our goal and passion is to get people back to their lives, whether they are derailed by injury, they are not feeling like themselves, or if the natural aging process has slowed them down. We help our clients get back to work, sports, daily activities and beauty, so they can enjoy their lives again.
