Stem cell therapy, an innovative, non-surgical treatment for both joint and back pain, has become a viable alternative for pain relief without invasive surgery. Utilizing your own body’s stem cells, your body can in fact heal itself.

What are adult stem cells?

Adult stem cells harvested from your own bone marrow have the ability to develop into other types of cells. These special types of cells are able to multiply, regenerate and self-renew. This means they have the ability to form potentially any type of tissue in your body. Because of their ability to differentiate and form different types of cells, they can be used to treat many types of injuries and regenerate damaged tissue. 

In fact, stem cells have many capabilities.  They are known to create proteins that decrease inflammation and kill bacteria, they can save dying cells, as well as, differentiate into cartilage, bone and connective tissue.

How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?

After harvesting your bone marrow from your hip, it is placed into a special filter and spun down in a centrifuge. This separates the adult stem cells from the red blood cells and plasma. Once the bone marrow has been separated, the adult stem cells, along with other growth factors in the blood, are aspirated into a syringe. The concentrated stems cells can then be injected into the targeted area.

Who Is A Good Candidate?

A good candidate for stem cell therapy is someone suffering from joint or back pain looking to improve the quality of their life, someone that wants to avoid the potential complications of surgery or a person looking to use their body’s stem cells as a method to restore their body using it’s own regenerative capabilities.

Treatment

Adult stem cells are being used to treat many types of chronic pain, arthritis, and degenerative disease of joints and the spine. Soft tissue injuries such as muscle, tendon and ligaments are also being treated with stem cell therapy,

WHAT IS PRP THERAPY FOR HAIR LOSS

Hair Restoration DemoHair loss affects millions of both men and women. PRP hair loss treatments could be an option to regrow your hair!

PRP, platelet rich plasma, is a non-surgical, extremely powerful treatment using your own platelets and growth factors to fight hair loss. The power of PRP lies within the growth factors. These growth factors send a signal to hair follicles that have stopped growing hair to start producing hair again. The platelets aid in the regrowth of hair by prolonging the growing phase of the growth cycle of the hair follicle.

HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK FOR HAIR LOSS

After drawing blood, the blood is put into a special filter and then placed into a centrifuge. The blood is spun down until the platelets conglomerate, creating a solution with 5-10 times the normal number of platelets. This is what is known as platelet-rich plasma.
 
The PRP is then strategically injected into the area of hair loss. 
 
For most patients, the first sign that the therapy is working is a reduction in hair loss. From there, patients will notice regrowth and increased hair length, as well as, stronger hair bands.

HOW OFTEN IS PRP FOR HAIR LOSS REQUIRED

Initial treatment should be done monthly for 3-4 months. Patients then typically require touch ups every 3-6 months. Most patients will see their hair becoming thicker as therapy is continued.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR PRP HAIR LOSS TREATMENT

PRP treatment can help anyone experiencing hair loss. It is most effective when hair loss is first detected, although regrowing hair from bald patches is also possible.

The most responsive patients are those with alopecia, which is a condition that causes hair loss across the top of the head, while leaving a more normal amount of hair on the back and sides. Overall, PRP therapy is a great treatment option for those with male or female pattern alopecia because it’s shown to be highly effective with very little risks.

Patients who may not see positive results from PRP therapy include:

  • Disorders such as thyroid disease or lupus, in which is hair loss is possibly a secondary condition.
  • Patients currently taking blood thinners.
