Mesenchymal Stem Cells Q & A

What are mesenchymal stem cells?

To understand how mesenchymal stem cells can help you, you must first understand what mesenchymal stem cells are and what they do. 

Mesenchymal stem cells are a type of cell that can become one of several specialized skeletal tissue cell types in your body. A mesenchymal stem cell can become:

  • Cartilage
  • Bone
  • Adipose (fat)

By turning into these cell types, mesenchymal stem cells help repair damage in your joints. The team at Active Health Clinics assesses the damage before coming up with an appropriate treatment plan for you. 

During regenerative medicine with mesenchymal stem cells, a provider takes a concentration of millions of mesenchymal stem cells and injects it in the area of the inflamed joint. 

The cells quickly multiply and grow to repair damage and ease inflammation. The team monitors your healing and may recommend additional injections to expedite it.

If the Active Health Clinics team feels that mesenchymal stem cells are an appropriate addition to your treatment plan, they’ll tell you how it will help. 

Where do mesenchymal stem cells come from?

Mesenchymal stem cells are found in many tissues in your body, but the cells used in treatment specifically come from donated umbilical cord tissue harvested after childbirth. 

Healthy babies are screened and approved to have their cord tissue donated for treatments such as those provided at Active Health Clinics. 

Dedicated to providing the best possible care for their patients, Active Health Clinics receives the mesenchymal stem cells from Predictive Biotech, a leader in regenerative medicine.

How long does it take for mesenchymal stem cells to work?

Your body may take some time to accept and integrate the mesenchymal stem cells. Many patients find some relief within the first couple of days. Tissue takes time to grow, and the exact time it takes to see the full effect varies from person to person. 

You may notice an improvement within just a couple weeks, or it may take several months with repeated injections before you feel the full benefits.
