As doctors and scientists are increasingly becoming aware of the healing and regenerative properties of stem cells, they are finding new sources of stem cell-rich tissues within the body that were previously discarded as waste. One increasingly useful source is the umbilical cord and cord tissue. Doctors have discovered that the umbilical cord contains rich stem cells, as well as a soft, jelly-like tissue called Wharton’s Jelly. Wharton’s Jellyis a potential source of adult stem cells. At Regenerative Sports, Spine and Spa we offer regenerative stem cell treatments including the use of Wharton’s Jelly to help heal your body naturally and return it to optimal health.
What is Wharton’s Jelly?
Like amniotic fluid and cord blood, Wharton’s Jelly is donated for use after the birth of a healthy baby through a safe and hygienic collection process. So what is Wharton’s Jelly? Within the umbilical cord, Wharton’s Jelly serves to protect the umbilical cord vessels, and when the baby is born the structure of Wharton’s Jelly changes as a result of the temperature and acts like a clamping action on the umbilical cord, slowing the flow of blood – this happens naturally about five minutes after the birth of the child.
What Are the Benefits of Cord Blood Tissues, like Wharton’s Jelly?
The adult stem cells, also called Mesenchymal stem cells(MSCs), within Wharton’s Jelly are incredibly useful because they are multipotent stem cells – this means they can differentiate into several different types of cells and bring healing to various parts of the body including:
How is Wharton’s Jelly Being Used in Treatments?
Scientific and medical breakthroughs involving use of Wharton’s Jelly as a regenerative therapy are occurring at a rapid pace. Recent discoveries involving the use of Wharton’s Jelly as a regenerative therapy have found it useful in the following cases:
