Using Stem Cells for Immunity + More

Chronic pain or injuries can keep us down for longer than we’d like. If you suffer from either of these, or just want to increase your body’s strength and resilience, consider stem cell injections. Stem cells promote healing from within the body and work to relieve you of your pain from your condition or injury. If you want to learn about how stem cell injections work, plus how they could help boost your immunity, keep reading.

What are Stem Cell Injections? 

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are naturally found in bone marrow and have been shown to have powerful healing properties that can help trigger your body’s own natural healing mechanisms. 

Stem cells divide over and over again as long as we’re alive, renewing themselves even if they’ve been inactive for a while. Due to this, they are able to turn into certain cells with specific jobs. 

When we inject stem cells into the body, they can transform into the exact types of cells your body needs to repair itself from within. This means they can offer anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and immune-supporting benefits. 

What Can Stem Cell Injections Help? 

Stem cells have the potential to help with a wide range of problems. California Institute for Regenerative Medicine states that stem cell treatments can be used to:

Some of the other benefits of stem cell injections can include:

Stem Cells and Immunity

Right now, we’re all concerned about how our immune systems are functioning. Recently, a study has shown that scientists have found that stem cells can contribute to the immune system’s response triggered by an infection. Further, they can also remember previous infections and provide a faster, more efficient healing time. If you want to improve your immune health, stem cell therapy could be a good way for you to start. 

Stem Cell Research

More and more research on the further benefits of stem cell therapies are being done each year. So far, it has shown promising results for biomedical science. This research is helping medical professionals learn how diseases start and spread, screen new drugs, and continue to develop cell-based therapies for many different conditions. 

The Treatment 

Stem cell therapy takes a couple of appointments. At your first visit, Dr. Saleemi will extract bone marrow, usually from the pelvis. The bone marrow then goes into a centrifuge machine, which spins at high speeds to concentrate the marrow. Once this is complete, Dr. Saleemi will inject the bone marrow into the affected area/areas of your body that could benefit from them. As soon as we inject them, they immediately begin to repair the damage. 

There is no downtime with this procedure and it is done right here in our practice. However, you might require a few appointments over the course of a couple of days, and blood testing to make sure the treatment is working as needed. 

Make an Appointment with Dr. Saleemi 

As part of a comprehensive treatment plan, stem cell injections can trigger your body’s own natural healing response. Over time, this can help reduce or fully eliminate your reliance on certain medications. Dr. Saleemi can help determine if stem cell injections are the right treatment option for you. If they are, she will walk you through the process and fully customize a treatment plan that is unique to you and your needs. Book a consultation online now or call us at (512)-795-7575.
