Knee Pain Causes and Symptoms

Why does my knee hurt?” is a question too many of us now or will someday face. People of all ages experience knee problems, including sudden knee pain, and such problems can have a huge impact on day-to-day life. Our ability to do things such as walking, getting out of a chair, playing sports, dancing, kneeling and more can be affected when we have knee joint pain.

 

Getting to the bottom of our knee pain causes can help us seek treatment sooner. The sooner we get a knee pain diagnosis, the sooner we can start to reverse the damage or prevent additional damage from occurring — and start enjoying a better quality of life.

 

What causes knee pain?

There are many different knee pain causes, which is why it can sometimes be difficult to get a firm knee pain diagnosis. Our knees are made of cartilage, bone, fluid, and ligaments, and the knee functions with help from the tendons and muscles within our legs, which cause the joint to move. Knee problems can occur when any element of the knee, such as a ligament, or the surrounding tendons or muscles become diseased or injured.

 

Disease and injury are the leading causes of knee pain. Osteoarthritis is the most common disease in the knee and is a result of the knee cartilage gradually being worn away over time and leaving the knee unable to operate as it used to, resulting in swelling and pain.

 

Injuries to the knee commonly happen during sports, car accidents, or falls, but other conditions can also cause knee pain. For example, patellofemoral dysfunction is one of the main disorders affecting the knee and can be caused by patella alta, a condition in which the kneecap sits too high on the knee. Some patients are born with patella alta, but in other cases, patella alta can be caused by osteoarthritis.

 

What does arthritis in the knee feel like?

Arthritis is one of the leading knee pain causes that may be the answer to someone who asks “Why does my knee hurt?” — but its side effects go beyond knee joint pain. Here are some of the most common symptoms of arthritis:

 

  • Knee pain that increases over time, with activity, without activity, or with changes to the weather
  • Tenderness, swelling, or inflammation in the knee, especially after a stretch of time with little to no activity
  • Limited range of motion that makes formerly easy movements difficult
  • Grinding, popping, or cracking sounds that indicate a loss of cartilage in the knee
  • Locking and buckling that may come and go as a result of a weakened knee

 

Not all arthritis is the same; three different forms of arthritis can affect the knee. As mentioned above, osteoarthritis is the most common disease of the knee. It usually happens to people who are middle-aged or older. Other forms of knee arthritis include rheumatoid arthritis, which is an autoimmune disease that can happen at any age, and post-traumatic arthritis, which can occur as a result of a knee injury. If you suspect you have arthritis, you should see a doctor to get a knee pain diagnosis and identify exactly what’s going on with your knees.

 

What causes knee pain at night?

Knee pain at night comes as a result of overusing the knee during the day, particularly if you have arthritis. Inflammation in the knee can cause sudden knee pain even if it’s been some time since physical activity has ceased. You can lessen the severity of your knee pain at night by being mindful of how you use your knee throughout the day and by making choices to reduce the level of impact your knee experiences. Exercising in the water or on a bike or elliptical can give your knees a break, as can avoiding the stairs. Losing weight is a long-term solution to help lessen knee pain, as your knee won’t have to work as hard to support your body when you’re up and about.

 

How do I know if my knee pain is serious?

Answering yes to any of the following questions may indicate you have a knee problem that needs medical attention:

 

  • Is your knee red or swollen?
  • Did your knee begin hurting following a fall, impact, or another injury?
  • Do you have knee pain, swelling, or tenderness during physical activity such as using the stairs?
  • Do you have knee pain, swelling, or tenderness when you’ve been sitting for an extended period of time?
  • Do you experience pain when you stretch your leg, such as a sharp pain behind your knee?
  • Does your knee joint seem to grind or lock, even without knee pain present?

 

Even if you didn’t answer yes to any of these questions, you may still have other knee pain or a knee condition that could benefit from treatment. People with knee pain often become used to it to the point where they don’t think it’s unusual, but the fact is, it’s not normal to have knee pain on a daily basis. If you find yourself asking, “Why does my knee hurt?” then you should put the question to a medical professional. Any knee discomfort is worth bringing up with your doctor, who will know what to ask and what to look for to discern if there is an underlying issue.

 

How can I make my knee pain go away?

There are several ways to treat knee pain caused by arthritis, injuries, or conditions such as patella alta. Medication can help lower the symptoms of knee pain, but it doesn’t address the underlying cause. Physical therapy can be used to gradually strengthen the muscles surrounding the knee to help it operate correctly. Surgery can help correct severe damage to the knee, such as a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament); unfortunately, surgery isn’t a surefire fix for knee issues, and knee surgery generally comes with a long and painful recovery period.

 

An emerging treatment for knee problems such as knee joint pain is stem cell therapy for knees. Stem cell therapy treatments involve collecting stem cells from a patient’s own fat stores, processing them, and injecting them back into the patient wherever they are needed. Stem cells have a unique capability to heal and regenerate tissues and cells within the body. The procedure can be completed within a day using only local anesthesia and has incredibly short recovery time. Many different knee conditions can be treated with stem cell therapy for knees, including but not limited to the following:

 

  • LCL tear (Lateral Collateral Ligament)
  • Ligament Sprain
  • MCL tear (Medial Collateral Ligament)
  • Meniscus Tear
  • Patella Tendonitis/Tendonosis
  • PCL tear (Posterior Cruciate Ligament)
  • ACL tear (Anterior Cruciate Ligament)
  • Pes Anserine Bursitis
  • Chronic Ligament Sprain
  • Chondromalacia Patella
  • Iliotibial Band Tendonitis (ITB Syndrome)
  • Post-Traumatic Knee Arthritis
  • Patellar Instability
  • Osgood-Schlatter’s Disease
  • Osteoarthritis of the Knee
  • Baker’s Cyst
  • Biceps Femoris Insertional Tendinopathy

Advancements in Osteoarthritis Treatment

Today’s PRP and Stem Cell Therapies are Changing How Modern Medicine Looks at Osteoarthritis

Though they’ve been around for many years now, this may be the first time you’ve heard of platelet-rich plasma and stem cell therapies for osteoarthritis. You’re not alone if this is the case. These advanced medical techniques have been primarily in use for sports medicine.

But over the past several years, these revolutionary therapies have begun changing the way physicians approach joint pain well beyond the realms of professional sports medicine.

A2M Therapy: A New Weapon Against Osteoarthritis?

Haven’t heard of Alpha 2 Macroglobulin (A2M)? You’re not alone. But if you or a loved one suffers from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis (RA), this naturally occurring protein found in blood plasma just might be your new best medical friend. A2M inhibits the actions of several types of proteinases. Proteinases are enzymes that break down proteins. But when it comes specifically to osteoarthritis and other kinds of arthritis, A2M therapy is attracting a lot of interest because of its ability to inhibit the action of a particular group of proteinases called Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs).

Is A2M Therapy Changing How Osteoarthritis & Rheumatoid Arthritis Are Treated?

So, is this new potential weapon in modern medicine’s arsenal the magic bullet arthritis sufferers have longed for? The National Stem Cell Institute (NSI), a leading U.S. regenerative medicine facility, is watching the development of A2M in therapies for osteoarthritis and RA with great interest. How does it stack up as a possible new addition to established platelet rich plasma therapies? NSI takes a closer look.

ARTHRITISA2M Treatment Basics

Alpha 2 Macroglobulin is made in the liver, and occurs naturally in blood plasma. A2M uses specific binding sites to snare bad enzymes that destroy cartilage. Once each binding site has trapped the enzymes, both the A2M and the bound enzymes are disposed of naturally by the body. This is a function known as “suicide inhibition.”

When it comes to osteoarthritis and/or rheumatoid arthritis, medical interest in A2M focuses on how it inhibits the group of proteinases known as Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs). One type of proteinase in the MMP group degrades the collagen within cartilage. It’s believed that this is a crucial factor enabling arthritis to destroy joint cartilage.

Obviously, then, turning a naturally occurring protein that obstructs the actions of these MMPs into an effective therapy would be a boon to medical science. But, is it there yet? What do we need to understand about A2M in order to fully develop its medical potential?

Why Medical Science Is Pursuing A2M Therapy To Treat Osteoarthritis & RA

A2M is classified as a cytokine, something that is secreted by the immune system and has an effect on other cells. The existence of A2M has been known for over fifty years, but the discovery of its potential role in slowing the progression of osteoarthritis and RA is new.

A2M can be thought of as the “good guy,” and MMPs as the “bad guys” in conditions like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. When arthritis eats away the cartilage that cushions the joints, MMPs are major players. Chronic inflammation is an “accomplice” of the MMPs when it comes to the degradation that occurs with osteoarthritis and RA. But, healthy joints generally have high levels of A2M. So when there is plenty of Alpha 2 Macroglobulin on patrol, it becomes difficult for the inflammation and cartilage breakdown that are the hallmarks of arthritis to take hold.

Slowing the progression of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis

Conventional medications have been invaluable allies in fighting the symptoms of osteoarthritis and RA. But the real goal of medical science is to halt or, at least, significantly slow the progression of arthritis. Even better, today’s breakthroughs in regenerative medicine can even reverse arthritic damage in some cases.

Little wonder, then, that the discovery of A2M’s possible role in preventing MMPs from doing harm has researchers excited about how A2M therapy may become part of the latest regenerative medical techniques in combating arthritis. Might it even usher in cures for rheumatoid and osteoarthritis in the future?

HEALTHYWhat Research Tells Us About A2M Therapy

Research has only begun studying the impact that A2M might have as a stand-alone therapy for osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. We do know that the regenerative medicine technique of injecting platelet rich plasma (PRP) into affected areas is highly successful in slowing arthritic progression as well as repairing damage and re-growing cartilage. PRP, by its very nature, already contains A2M.

But will isolating A2M and turning it into a therapy apart from PRP treatments prove to be a bonafide cure for osteoarthritis and RA?

Certainly there is scientific evidence that indicates A2M is a key component in halting the progression of osteoarthritis on the molecular level. A2M grabs and stymies the three main chemicals leading to joint and cartilage damage. When A2M entraps these harmful chemicals, our bodies can swiftly remove them.

Current studies are showing how A2M helps block the disintegration of cartilage. In one animal study, researchers injected a concentrate of A2M into test subjects that did not have adequate amounts of A2M already circulating in the blood. When the concentrate was injected around the arthritic joints of the animals, the result was a decrease in arthritis progression.

And an important study conducted by Brown University, collaborating with the National Institutes of Health, showed that while natural concentrations of A2M in joints are inadequate for long-term, effective joint protection, an injection of A2M concentrate protected cartilage by halting progression of osteoarthritis.

Clinically developed concentrations of A2M have also been shown to shield joints

These studies and others indicate that not every joint responds to A2M therapy. However, a test is available that identifies which joints are likely to respond to A2M treatments. The test, called fibronectin-aggrecan G3 complex test (FAC), specifically recognizes a significant level of a particular protein. This is proving to be a highly accurate diagnostic tool for the testing of arthritis.

Clinically developed concentrations of A2M have also been shown to shield joints from a protein complex that makes joints to achy. These studies also indicate that A2M therapy not only relieves osteoarthritis pain, but it hinders or outright prevents joint height degradation, promotes tissue growth, and supports overall joint restoration.

What All This Means About Repairing Arthritic Damage & Relieving Pain

All in all, the studies point to therapeutic injections of A2M concentrate inhibiting the disintegration of cartilage and shutting down the caustic, inflammatory proteins that collect in arthritic joints. And early practical clinical application indicates that early intervention may actually minimize or prevent osteoarthritis that develops due to joint injury.

We know that platelet rich plasma therapy, which naturally contains A2M along with multiple other regenerative and anti-inflammatory components, is exceptional in the treatment of muscle, ligament, tendon, and bone injuries. PRP therapy is already in use in conjunction with adipose (fat)-derived adult stem cell therapy to reduce scar tissue associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

regenerative medicine

Will A2M therapy be a natural extension of today’s regenerative medicine?

These regenerative techniques have already been practiced in the United States for many years for the restoration of healthy tissue, the reversal of arthritic damage, and the reduction of inflammation and pain. Sports doctors and professional athletes –including notable pros like tennis champion Rafael Nadal and Masters winner Tiger Woods- have known about PRP therapy for years, and have used it to prevent surgery and return more quickly to competition.

ATHLETEFor the average American suffering from osteoarthritis or AR, adipose (fat)-derived adult stem cell and PRP therapies have helped patients return to improved daily activities and a healthier, happier life. The National Stem Cell Institute reports an increase in patients being advised by physicians to seek out PRP and stem cell therapies as a viable, minimally-invasive alternative to surgery.

So, Is A2M Part Of Our Regenerative Medicine Future?

The science behind regenerative medicine has been with us for almost 80 years now, and the application of this medical method has been practiced in the U.S. for about 50. But it wasn’t until the discovery of easily accessed adipose-derived adult stem cells and the development of platelet rich plasma therapy that its use became widely available and affordable to the general public.

Much still needs to be firmly established about A2M’s potential role in treating osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis before leading clinics like NSI will choose to develop pure or near-pure A2M concentrate as a therapy and add it to their list of safe, well-established therapy lines. Meanwhile, the National Stem Cell Institute continues to watch with keen interest to see if research and clinical trials continue to build on the present evidence.

More research is needed, but the potential is exciting

BLOOD PLASMA

For the time being, NSI advises caution regarding early claims by ethically dubious facilities that offer concentrated A2M therapy injections. NSI does agree with present research that has established A2M’s crucial role in maintaining healthy joints. But, until sufficient A2M studies and trials have been performed, PRP and stem cell therapies are proving to be the most advanced methods for the significant slowing of osteoarthritis and RA progression as well as repairing the damage, restoring function, and relieving pain.

This is because PRP and stem cell therapies have already been shown to raise A2M levels in joints, reduce arthritis pain, slow arthritis progression, and to be exceptionally safe and effective procedures for a wide variety of injuries, illnesses, and chronic conditions, including:

  • Arthritis or Osteoarthritis
  • Ligament Tears
  • Tendonitis
  • Bulging or Herniated Discs
  • Tennis or Golfer’s Elbow
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Rotator Cuff Injuries
  • Sacroiliac Conditions
  • Sciatica and/or Sciatic Nerve Pain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Chronic Neck, Lower Back, Shoulder, or Knee Pain
  • Instability or Balance Issues
  • Stiffness, Flexibility, or Range of Motion Problems

Regenerative methods are already changing the way the medical community practices medicine. Today, we know that the human body holds innate potential for generating its own cure for an ever-growing list of injuries, aliments, and chronic disorders. Will A2M prove to be the key to yet others like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and more?

Time will tell, and the NSI is watching with great interest.

5 Ways Stem Cells For Anti Aging Treatment Works

For thousands of years, history has been littered with myths and false methods for stopping the clock of aging. The legendary queen Cleopatra bathed in sour milk as an anti aging treatment. Still others relied on weird applications of animal organs. But it is safe to say that real strides were not made until about 110 years ago, when cosmetic surgery as we know it was first developed. Still, to this day, invasive plastic surgery remains risky, expensive, and far from perfect.

Today, more and more people are turning to stem cell therapy as the ultimate anti-aging treatment, and many physicians say there’s a good reason. Unlike plastic surgery, stem cells rejuvenate from within and address much more than the outward effects of aging. Countless studies have shown that stem cells replace, re-grow, and repair on a cellular level that goes far beyond simply “looking good.” They can also return more youthful levels of energy and resolve age-related conditions like hair loss, osteoarthritis, and more.

Stem cell anti aging treatment is more than skin deep

stem cell therapyThe basics are, in many ways, quite simple. Plastic surgery can temporarily reduce the outward appearance of aging. But it cannot address the core causes that make us age. Cosmetic surgery can’t restore energy levels or relieve the aches, pains, and degenerative effects of aging. Stem cells, however, aren’t simply skin deep. As an anti aging treatment, they literally combat the aging process from the cellular –even the molecular- level all through the body. And they do all this without invasive, painful surgery or the need for recovery periods of any length of time.

The effects of anti aging treatment with stem cells can include:

  • A More Even Skin Tone
  • Reduction of Age Spots
  • Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Increased energy and stamina
  • Improved Muscular Strength
  • The Slowing of the Effects of Degenerative Diseases

So, how exactly does stem cell anti aging treatment do all this, and more? There are five essential ways. The National Stem Cell Institute, a leading U.S. medical clinic in stem cell therapy technology, goes over all of them, and explains how anti aging treatment through stem cell therapy is performed.

5 Ways Stem Cell Anti Aging Treatment Works

 

  1. Increasing The Body’s Stem Cell Count

Stem cells remain in the body throughout life. In fact, our bodies depend on these “adult” stem cells in order to keep us healthy and to repair damage of any kind, whether from injury, illness, or neurological conditions. Discovering that adult stem cells are so critical to health and disease prevention is counted as one of the most important health discoveries of modern medicine. From this discovery has sprung a golden age of stem cell therapy developments; among them, anti aging treatment.

All adult stem cells originate in bone marrow. As we age, the production of stem cells begins to decline. The result is aging, age-related diseases and disorders, and a slowing in the body’s ability to heal after an injury or during illness. No amount of cosmetic surgery can be effective anti aging treatment for these.

Declining levels of stem cells affect the skin’s ability to remain elastic and repair environmental damage

Declining levels of adult stem cells mean damage can be essentially left un-repaired almost anywhere in or on the body. The older we get, the more our body’s defenses must decide where to use its dwindling resources. This means that repairing the effects of aging to the skin or hair line will gradually take a back seat to more pressing health matters. Anti aging treatment studies show that adult stem cell releases from the bone marrow drops at significant rates as we grow older.

  • At thirty-five years of age, stem cell release drops by forty-five percent
  • At fifty years of age, stem cell release drops by fifty percent
  • At sixty-five years of age, stem cell release drops by ninety percent

This means that, by the age of sixty-five, only ten percent of the body’s stem cells are circulating through the blood. Compare these percentages to that of infants, whose stem cell circulation rate is 100%.

Stem cell therapy as an anti aging treatment helps to increase the levels of stem cells circulating through the bloodstream. By harvesting the cells from an easily accessed source –the fatty layer that lies just beneath the skin- a person’s own stem cells can be concentrated and released back into the bloodstream. There, the cells can resume fighting the root causes of low energy levels, the degenerative conditions related to aging, and restore the skin’s natural hydrating and regenerative abilities that give it the glow, elasticity, and firmness of youth.

FACE

  1. Repairing The Damage Of Skin Due To Aging

With a greater number of adult stem cells circulating through the bloodstream, every organ in the body can more effectively fight the effects of disease and aging. Since the skin is the body’s largest organ it, too, is profoundly affected by the boost in stem cell circulation. Anti aging treatment via stem cell therapy results in the improvement of:

  • The skin’s elasticity and tightness
  • The reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • The evening of skin tone through lightening and clarifying
  • The reduction of sun damage
  • The reduction of the effects of environmental pollution
  • Increase of skin cell longevity
  • Promotion of healthy skin radiance
  1. Repairing The Damage To Hair Follicles

There are a number of reasons why people lose their hair, from genetics to disease to environmental elements. In regard to age-related hair loss, both hair and scalp cells begin to deteriorate as we grow older. The thicker, longer hair of youth is replaced with the soft, white fuzzy hair so often associated with age. This happens to men and women alike. It’s caused by stem cells of the hair follicles falling dormant. Without proper signals from the surrounding area, the cells cannot begin to regenerate and continue to grow the thicker hair associated with youth. Stem cell therapy for hair loss in relation to anti aging treatment “jumpstarts” hair production.

HAIR LOSS

An infusion of stem cells restores signaling

When anti aging treatment includes stem cell therapy for hair loss, the infusion of stem cells restores those lost signals that cause hair growth. The fresh stem cells stimulate those that are already within –but are lying dormant- in the hair follicle. This causes the dormant cells to “wake up” and chemically signal hair growth. The fresh stem cells also construct and help to underpin the hair follicle papilla, which is the base of the follicle bulb. Comprised of connective tissue and capillary loops, the follicle bulb is an essential part of healthy hair. The result is ongoing, long term, permanent hair regeneration.

  1. Repairing The Internal Damage Of Aging

Stem cells are the building blocks from which all repair, regeneration, and healing of the body arise. When adult stem cells flow abundantly through the bloodstream, they reach every organ and become whatever type of cell is needed to maintain the health of each one. A higher rate of stem cell circulation goes beyond the improvement of external signs of aging. Anti aging treatment thought stem cell therapy permeates deeply and throughout the body. Among the areas potentially addressed through stem cell anti aging treatment are:

  • Adrenal Glands
  • Appendix
  • Bladder
  • Brain
  • Eyes
  • Gall Bladder
  • Heart
  • Intestines
  • Kidneys
  • Liver
  • Lungs
  • Esophagus
  • Pancreas
  • Pituitary Gland
  • Prostate
  • Skin
  • Stomach
  • Thymus
  • Thyroid
  • Veins and Other Blood Vessels

Not surprisingly, then, stem cell therapy can go beyond anti aging treatment even when the intention is mostly to address the external affects of growing old. Among the age-related diseases and chronic conditions that stem cell therapy treats are:

  • Arthritis
  • Back Pain
  • Diabetes
  • Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
  • Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD)
  • Joint Pain
  • Neuropathy
  1. Restoring More Youthful Energy Levels

Anti aging treatment through stem cell therapy can ultimately result in far more than external improvement in skin quality and fuller hair. Since stem cells address a wide array of underlying conditions related to age, including the restoration of organ functions, energy levels are known to increase as tissues are repaired and inflammation from the cellular level on up is dramatically decreased.

A number of age-related conditions can rob people of energy. Among them are:

  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Kidney Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Lung Related Diseases
  • Circulatory Conditions

Certainly, part of the reason stem cell therapy helps restore energy levels is because the relief of chronic symptoms, like pain, makes people feel better. But the repair of damaged organs means healthy tissue replaces that which is unhealthy. When that happens, fuller function is restored. Just as when an automobile performs better and with more pep after proper repairs are done so, too, does the body produce more energy and stamina when its organs, blood vessels, and central nervous system are all operating at optimum levels.

Breaking Down How Stem Cell Therapy Works As An Anti Aging Treatment

So, what are the exact mechanics that allow anti aging treatment through stem cell therapy to lead to optimal health? As mentioned above, stem cells are the building blocks from which all repair, regeneration, and healing of the body arise. Every cell of the body “stems” from them. Hence, the name “stem cell.”

INTERNAL DAMAGE REPAIRED

Packets of pure potential

Stem cells are packets of pure potential. The most commonly used stem cells in today’s regenerative medicine are mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Originating in bone marrow, MSCs await signals from the body and brain to travel to whatever area is in need of development, repair, regeneration, or healing. In all stem cell therapies, whether for anti aging treatment or other types, adult stem cells are either multipotent or pluripotent. Those that are pluripotent have the most potential to “shape shift” into the many types of cells of the body, including:

  • Bone
  • Muscle
  • Cartilage
  • Brain
  • Neurons
  • Blood
  • Tendon
  • Nerve
  • Skin
  • Organ
  • Gland

When the population of circulating MSCs is plentiful, this microscopic but mighty army is able to reach a variety of organs and turn into the cells needed by the body to replace damaged, worn, or diseased cells. The influx of fresh tissue helps the organs recover and sustain optimal vigor. In the case of anti aging treatment, this includes restored health to skin cells. Youthful glow and suppleness, among other benefits, is returned to the skin.

Current studies indicate that the amount of stem cells that circulate through the bloodstream is a primary factor in all health and healing. So the greater the population of circulating MSCs, the greater is the ability of the body to heal. A substantial collection of scientific evidence has been established over the decades that overwhelmingly supports today’s developments in regenerative medicine methods, including anti aging treatment.

Great strides in stem cell therapy were made prior to their use as an anti aging treatment

MSCs have been in use in the United States for many years now. Treatments for a wide range of diseases, injuries, and chronic disorders are well established, with more being developed on a continuing basis. Adult stem cells are showing impressive results in the fight against several cancer types. And the National Stem Cell Institute practices regenerative medicine in combating diseases like multiple sclerosis, lupus, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, diabetes, and more. Anti aging treatment is a natural addition to these stem cell therapy methods.

How Stem Cell Anti Aging Treatment Is Performed

Reputable stem cell clinics in the United States work exclusively under FDA guidelines. These guidelines stipulate that therapies like anti aging treatment involve only minimal manipulation of the MSCs. The stem cells must also be the patient’s own, and must be immediately delivered back to the patient after the clinical processing is complete.

Thanks to the discovery of vast stores of pluripotent MSCs within the fatty tissue that lies just beneath the skin, remarkable advances have been made that have enabled stem cell therapies to develop exponentially while remaining FDA guidelines-compliant. Among these are anti aging treatment stem cell techniques.

Stem cell anti aging treatment is an out-patient procedure with no post-procedure downtime

The discovery that the fatty tissue just beneath the skin holds an abundance of pluripotent MSCs has made stem cell therapies of many kinds possible, including anti aging treatment. This fatty layer is known as adipose fat, and it is easily accessible through minimally invasive means. The MSCs from this source are known as adipose-derived stem cells. A small sample is usually harvested from the patient’s thigh, buttock, or abdomen. Since the sample isn’t large, only a local anesthesia is needed at the site of harvesting.

While this technique for straightforwardly harvesting adipose-derived MSCs is a boon to patient and physician alike, the ease of this minimally invasive procedure is not the primary reason that these specific stem cells are preferred in regenerative medicine. Adipose-derived stem cells are prized for their exceptional potency. This makes them a superior choice for a wide variety of stem cell treatment procedures, not the least of these being anti aging treatment.

The procedure is not only minimally invasive, but straight-forward

Anti aging treatment begins with the harvesting of the adipose tissue. The small sample then goes through a process known as centrifugation. This separates the MSCs from the other components of the adipose tissue. At the end of the process, the stem cells are highly concentrated. This concentrate is the basis of a serum that is injected back into the patient as soon as the MSCs are processed.

CENTRIFUGATION

The full procedure, from harvesting to injection, is complete in a matter of a few hours. There is no concern for rejection because the MSCs are the patient’s own. Unlike plastic surgery, there is no post-procedure downtime or need for an extended healing period after anti aging treatment with stem cells. Patients may return home and take up their normal activities immediately after leaving the clinic.

There is rarely a need for any pain medication following the procedure. If there is any, it is generally reported as mild to moderate discomfort at the site where the cells were harvested. An over the counter medication such as Tylenol is usually all that is needed.

Anti aging treatment infuses the body with a fresh supply of pluripotent MSCs which go to work repairing and rejuvenating all organs, including the skin. Internal effects can include:

  • Reduction in Fatigue
  • Improved Muscular Strength
  • Increased energy and stamina
  • A Demonstrable Uptick in Mood and Mental Acuity
  • Reduction in joint and bone stiffness and pain
  • The Slowing of the Effects of Degenerative Diseases

External effects can include:

  • A More Even Skin Tone
  • Reduction of Age Spots
  • Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Over-all Firmer, Younger Appearance
  • A Happier, Healthier Outlook on Life

As we age, everything breaks down. Prior to the development of regenerative medicine, little could be done to slow the effects of aging. Cosmetic procedures –from abrasive chemical peels to major surgical procedures- offer the outward appearance of youth, but they can be highly invasive, frequently risky, and often require long periods of painful recovery. More than this, cosmetic procedures of any kind –no matter how minimally performed- cannot address the core elements that really make us feel old.

The advent of regenerative medicine has already begun changing the future of modern medicine. It comes as no surprise that this remarkable sea change is shifting anti aging treatment away from the merely superficial to the far more holistic approach of addressing whole body health through stem cell therapy.

What to Look for in a Stem Cell Medical Clinic

When searching for a qualified stem cell therapy center it’s important to remember that not all of them are created equal. Stem cells, when used properly, are your body’s most powerful means for healing that can repair everything from ligaments, tendons, and cartilage to organs including your liver, pancreas and lungs and even neurological tissue like your brain, nerves and spinal cord.

Unfortunately, the majority of so-called “regenerative medicine clinics” in the world aren’t trained in the latest, most technologically advanced procedures and will, therefore, provide poor results if any.

The good news is the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has established the most advanced stem cell and platelet rich plasma procedures on the planet which has drawn patients from all over the world as well as professional athletes and celebrities because they are recognized as the best in the world at stem cell therapy.

 

What makes NSI Stem Cell the top stem cell clinic in the world is demonstrated in 5 key areas:

1. Highly trained and experienced, board-certified doctors and team members who have performed stem cell procedures on thousands of patients with incredible results.

2. Cutting edge procedures utilizing all that regenerative medicine has to offer for many chronic degenerative conditions.

3. Leading scientific researchers who follow the advanced guidelines to maximize the healing potential of your stem cells and to maintain compliance and ethics

4. Use of only the most potent and viable resource of living, viable stem cells and harvested on the same day. No vial that you can purchase will contain living stem cells. If there is no harvest then there are no stem cells.

5. Post-operative guidance for supporting stem-cell growth including rehabilitation, diet and supplement protocols. NSI is a full-service healthcare center focused on patient outcomes. Stem cell therapy is only one tool used to help improve patients’ lives.

Patients have raved about their experience at NSI Stem Cell Clinics testifying that it was their unique cutting-edge procedures that helped them experience a breakthrough when nothing else worked.
