There is no denying that we live in an age-obsessed society. Americans spend an estimated $84 billion annually on products designed to make us look better—and younger.
But when it comes to stem cells, younger does not equal better.
You’ve probably read some of our other blog posts about the phony “stem cell clinics” that are popping up all around the country, promising miraculous results and peddling scores of misinformation in the process.
One of their favorite sales pitches is the false claim that dead amniotic or cord tissue are live stem cells and that young stem cells are needed for older patients.
Simply put, this is a bunch of baloney.
Just the Facts, Ma’am
Regenexx®, whose stem cell therapies we use at Stem Cell Arts, has collected extensive stem cell data through its own patient registry for many years. Based on that data, which currently includes about 10,000 patients, there is no correlation between the age of a patient’s own stem cells and the outcome of their treatment. For example, in knee stem cell treatments, Regenexx®found no correlation between age and outcome when comparing age groups (i.e., ≤50 years, 51–60 years, and >60 years).
This empirical evidence reveals that older patients do just as well as younger patients with a precise injection of their own stem cells. StemCell Arts physicians are trained and licensed to perform Regenexx® Stem Cell therapy, which is the world’s most advanced and uses adultstem cells from your own body—not amniotic or cord tissue cells. Many people are unaware that adult stem cells can be harvested without raising ethical or moral concerns. These cells can come from the body’s bone marrow as well as from body fat that contains mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) that contain high levels of restorative properties.
The Regenexx® Stem Cell procedure extracts your own stem cells, concentrates these cells at the highest level possible and reinjects them into the injured area to boost your body’s ability to naturally promote healing. The result is relief from chronic pain and inflammation from conditions such as arthritis, herniated back discs, tendon tears or joint injuries. The entire treatment is conducted in our sterile, state-of-the-art office procedure suites and takes only a few hours.
When it comes to stem cell therapy, don’t assume younger is better. Believe and trust in your own body’s ability to heal itself. Contact us today and let us explain how an injection of your own healing factors can relieve your pain without surgery.
