Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Treatments in Scottsdale, AZ are continuing to become a treatment option for people who have chronic pain or acute injury. Part of the reason that regenerative medicine treatments are so popular is because of the anti-inflammatory effects that the products used at the Wellness Center have on injuries and chronic conditions. Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Treatments in Scottsdale, AZ use Wharton's Jelly as a product that is derived from the umbilical cords of healthy births. This product has a profile that is shown to contain cells that contribute to reducing inflammation. These cells are called cytokines. Cytokines are measured in Wharton's Jelly along with proteins, collagen and other growth factors. When these tissues are injected the body does not reject the tissue but this tissue actually acts to signal the brain to create new growth at the site of injection. This is why this type of treatment is called regenerative medicine because tissue regeneration is the goal.
There are different types of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Treatments in Scottsdale, AZ including bone marrow aspirate and adipose tissue harvesting but the Wellness Center relies heavily on the work of Arnold Caplan who named cells called Mesenchymal Stem Cells. He has shown that the umbilical cord tissue has the potential to quickly replicate and differentiate when used as a treatment option. He has also shown that our stem cell supply significantly decreases as we age and our stem cells take longer to reproduce during the aging process. Harvesting regenerative product from yourself when you are older means that you are using older cells and tissue and this is one of the reasons our office uses umbilical cord tissue to perform our procedures.
