Stem Cell Therapy for Pain Management

Currently, the most popular form of stem cell therapy is bone marrow transplant. However, the regenerative properties of stem cells also make them ideal for treating arthritis, chronic pain, and injuries leading to chronic pain and even autoimmunity. So, the scope of stem cell therapy-based treatments is vast.

How can stem cell therapy help you recover and lead a pain-free life?

Arthritis affects a major chunk of the US population. It is a debilitating disease that has a considerable impact on the quality of life of patients. While there are some treatments that are available for arthritis, most require early detection and invasive surgeries. Even then, the chances of alleviating pain are not very high. In this regard, Houston stem cell therapy can provide a great alternative to arthritis patients. A minimally invasive injection of stem cells into joints can help immensely in returning the body part to normal, pain-free functioning.

There can be many reasons for the rise of chronic pain the human body. Aging, illnesses and unfortunate accidents are some of the most frequent reasons. Normally, treatment for chronic pain involves the combined uses of drugs, surgery and rehabilitative therapy. But these are only marginally effective and cannot address the pain as definitively as stem cell therapy. Because stem cells have the unique property of transforming into whatever type of cells required by the body, they can be used to help patients regenerate their damaged body parts. This can potentially lead to a radical alleviation of chronic pain.

Thanks to the major influx and wide use of pharmaceuticals in the US, autoimmune diseases have become widespread. Most of them still do not have any treatments and as a result, patients are left to suffer and sometimes even die from them. However, Houston stem cell therapy has proven to be a very useful way of addressing autoimmune diseases. By helping the body naturally replace errant cells with healthy ones, stem cell therapy can not only treat autoimmune conditions but also vastly enhance the patient’s quality of life.

Conditions

Here is a list of health conditions where stem cell therapy may help.

ALS

19 amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients receiving stem cell treatment intrathecally, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Functional Rating Scale score remained stable for 6 months after intervention, and Expanded Disability Status Scale scores improved from 6.7 to 5.9 on average. (Source: Karussis D. et al; Archive of Neurology 2010; 67: 1187–1194.)

Alzheimer’s

Potentially of greater therapeutic significance are the reported neuroprotective paracrine effects of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs), with the introduction of MSC-secreted factors able to stimulate proliferation, neuronal differentiation, and survival in endogenous neurogenic niches for Alzheimer’s Disease. (Source: Teixeira FG, et al; Stem Cell Rev Rep. 2015;11:288–97.)

Anti-Aging and Apoptosis

One of the important property of MSCs is the ability to rescue apoptotic cells induced by
traumatic exposures to hypoxia, chemicals/acidity, mechanical damage and radiation. For example, MSCs have proved to reverse apoptosis in cardiomyoblasts after ischemia, as well as
damaged neurons and lung fibroblasts. (Source: Cselenya´k et al; BMC Cell Biol 2010; 11: 29.)

Autoimmune Disease

Based on their ability to modulate immune responses, MSCs are the best stem cells as a treatment for autoimmune diseases. Patients suffering from severe autoimmune diseases do not respond to standard therapy and can be treated with autologous or allogenic MSC therapy. The clinical significance of MSCs mainly contribute to its potent immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory effects through the interactions between the lymphocytes associated with both the innate and adaptive immune systems. MSCs suppress activities such as T-cell proliferation, B-cell functions, natural killer cell proliferation, and cytokine production and prevent the differentiation, maturation, and activation of dendritic cells. (Biointegration of Medical Implant Materials (Second Edition), Woodhead Publishing Series in Biomaterials 2020)

Crohn’s Disease

Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It causes inflammation of your digestive tract, which can lead to a variety of symptoms. Twelve patients with Fistulising Crohn’s disease were treated with intra fistular injection of MSC stem cell and achieved sustained complete closure of fistula tracks in seven cases and partial closure in three cases. Rectal mucosa healing was observed in all patients, as well as a significant increase in circulating Treg cells. (Source: Ciccocioppo R, et al. Gut 2011; 60:788–798.)

Diabetes
(Type 1 & 2)

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease mediated by the production of autoantibody directed against the b cells of the pancreas. Studies on umbilical cord blood (UCB)e derived MSCs that demonstrated the expression of pancreatic development genes in these cells. Recently, a population of UCB-derived cells was shown to behave like hES cells, recapitulating the same differentiation steps from early stages to b-cells (Inverardi et al., 2003; Prabakar et al., 2011). Meanwhile we have seen most of type 2 diabetes patients’ HA1C have drop down below 6.0 under our comprehensive care.

Heart Failure

Heart failure is a condition in which the heart can’t pump enough blood throughout the body. In an heart failure clinical study, the lowest dose of stem cells (25 million) resulted in the greatest improvement in LV ejection fraction and LV systolic volume, whereas no significant effect was achieved by 75 or 150 million stem cell doses at 3, 6 or 12 months.
(Source: Perin EC, et al 2011 Scientific Sessions of the American Heart Association. 14, November 2011; Orlando, FL, 2011.)

Kidney Disease

Majority of our patients, who are suffering from Stage 5 or 4 or 3 kidney disease, have seen improvement of their kidney function, ie. eGFR improved and reduced blood BUN and Creatinine at weMED Health Center. A recent systematic review of over 70 articles highlighted MSCs as one of the most effective cell populations for treating experimental chronic kidney disease. (Papazova D.A., et al, Dis. Model. Mech. 2015;8:281–293.

Knee Osteoarthritis

MSC Stem Cell transplantation has been shown to produce significant clinical improvements with cartilage repair. The transplanted MSCs can be differentiated into chondrocytes, or it is also possible that MSCs produce soluble growth factors to induce other cells of the microenvironment to differentiate into cartilage. Most of weMED Health Patients whose before and after x-rays have showed regrowth of cartilage and significant relief of symptoms. See more of our patients before and after X-rays…

Liver Disease

Quite a few clinical research demonstrated the effectiveness and safety of stem cell treating liver diseases. In a clinical trial, Zhang et al. administered a dosage of 0.5106/kg body weight HUC-MSCs in 30 patients with decompensated liver cirrhosis. The cells were infused intravenously three times at 4-week intervals. After 40-week follow-up, there was a significant reduction in the volume of ascites and improvement in liver function in all of the HUC-MSCs treated patients. No adverse effects were reported in any patient during the follow-up. (Source: Zhang Z, et al. Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology 2012;27(Suppl 2):112-20)

Lupus

The most recent evidence in favor of MSC-based treatment of SLE involves 15 refractory-stage SLE patients. Significant improvements were seen in systemic lupus erythematosus disease activity index (SLEDAI) scores, and proteinuria and stabilization of renal function after 12 months. (Source: Sun L, et al. Stem Cells 2009; 27: 1421–1432.)

Lyme Disease

Also known as Lyme borreliosis, is an infectious disease caused by the Borrelia bacterium which is spread by ticks.

Multiple Sclerosis

MSCs have pronounced immune-modulating and immunosuppressive properties so as they were being tested in clinical trial for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. MSCs promote self-repair by reducing scar formation, by stimulating the formation of new blood vessel, and by secreting growth and neuroprotective factors, such as superoxide dismutase-3. After intravenous injection, many cells entered the CNS and became widely distributed both in experimental models and in patients (Prockop and Youn Oh, 2012; Uccelli et al., 2007)

Neuropathy

Regardless the causes of neuropathy, such as by diabetes, chemotherapy-induced or age-related, weMED comprehensive treatment, which addressing the nerve damage and causes, has provided significant improvement for patients’ feet and hands, as well as balance.

Parkinson’s Disease

Stem cell therapy, with the aim of replacing lost neurons, is the most promising strategy for this disease. It has been demonstrated that MSCs cells can enhance the levels of tyrosine hydroxylase and dopamine after transplantation in PD (parkinson’s disease). Furthermore, it has been suggested that these cells contribute to neuro-protection by secreting trophic factors, such as EGF, VEGF, NT3, FGF-2, HGF, and BDNF, or through antiapoptotic signaling without differentiation in neuronal pheno-type. (Wang et al., 2010; Wilkins et al., 2009;Moloney et al., 2010

Rheumatoid arthritis

weMED has seen great success in treating RA patients, clinical study from Zheng et al. demonstrated that MSCs isolated from RA patients exerted immunosuppressive functions, by inhibiting T-cell proliferation, blocking the secretion of several proinflammatory cytokines, and allowing the expression of antiinflammatory IL-10. (Zheng et al., 2008; Augello et al., 2007; Maoet al., 2010).

Spinal Cord Injury

Damage to the spinal cord that may cause temporary or permanent changes to its function. Four patients (80%) receiving stem cells improved from Grade A to Grade C, and one patient improved from Grade A to Grade B. The GCSF-only patient remained at Grade A. The only side effects observed were fever and myalgia. (Source: Park H, et al. Tissue Engineering 2005; 11: 913–922.)

FAQ

Generally speaking, humans have three types of stem cells: Embryonic Stem Cell, Adult Stem Cell (in bone marrow, adipose tissues, menstrual blood, baby teeth…) and Perinatal Stem Cell.

Over 90% of stem cells in the bone marrow are hematopoietic stem cells (the rest are Mesenchymal Stem Cell (MSC)) that serve as the genesis for hematopoiesis, the process of creating the body’s red and white blood cells. All of the red blood cells are only able to survive about 120 days.

Adipose tissue (fatty tissue) mostly contains Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) which differentiate into cartilage, bones, ligaments and other tissues.

The scientists also found abundant stem cells in the placenta, umbilical cord, and amniotic fluid – known as perinatal stem cells, they are rich in MSC stem cell. The perinatal stem cells have an extremely low rate of rejection, as they are naive cells, immune privileged and undifferentiated (just like the mother won’t reject the embryo). They can be almost injected into any human being’s joints or intravenous without matching process like bone marrow does to be matched first.

A very small number of Pericytes (local stem cell) which are presented in all organs, tissues, and blood vessels are local stabilizer and protector, they are readily mobilized to repair adjacent, immediate injury.

All these cells are efficient at repairing bone, cartilage or ligaments or simply rejuvenating your body by increasing the amount of circulating stem cells.

Let’s Start at the Beginning of a Stem Cell:

The human body contains over 37 trillion cells. All these cells come from a single source, a fertilized egg.

Once an egg is fertilized, these cells are called embryonic stem cells and can become any of the 200 different types of cells in the body. Embryonic cells are both totipotent cells and pluripotent cells. Totipotent cells and pluripotent cells are very similar, both can become any of the varying cell types in the body, but totipotent cells can form extraembryonic cells like a placenta and an umbilical cord for the growing fetus. This type of stem cell may also cause teratoma (a teratoma is a tumor made up of several different types of tissue, such as hair, muscle, or bone). It is illegal to use embryonic stem cells to inject into the human body.

After 5-6 day, the embryo begins cell divisions that begin a process called differentiation. Totenpotic cells begin to form the placenta and umbilical cord that will feed the embryo as it becomes a baby, and pluripotent cells that can become any cell type begin to transform into multipotent cells that begin to form the various organs, systems, and tissues that comprise the human body. For example, blood cells will transform into platelets, white blood cells, and red blood cells while other cell types will begin to form other organs and systems.

Once a baby is born, the cells in the body have become specific and exist as multipotent stem cells throughout many tissues and organs. Many stem cells exist after birth in the human body, ready to carry out the functions and biological processes. A large portion of these multipotent cells are found in bone marrow cells and adipose tissue (fatty tissue).

Stem cells are responsible for repairing, restoring and rejuvenating damaged tissue in the body.

In healthy people, stem cells are far harder to come by. There are a small number of stem cells circulating in the bloodstream, normally to replace aging cells or fix minor damage. The rest of the tissues carry pericytes, which serve as the body’s local recovery agents. When inflammation or injury occurs the body producer chemokines or cytokines. These chemical markers mobilize stem cells from bone marrow or other tissues to locate and repair the damaged tissue.

These functions are necessary to maintain a healthy and balanced body.

Unfortunately, poor quantity and quality of stem cells can facilitate certain chronic diseases or even cancer!

This can be even more problematic for acute injuries. In injuries that impair mobility, there are oftentimes not enough stem cells available in the body to efficiently repair the injury.

In common bone fractures, meniscus tears, anterior cruciate ligament tears, or even labrum tears – there is rarely enough stem cells in the joint capsules to fix the injury and oftentimes expensive or dangerous invasive surgery is needed.

Sadly, these injuries aren’t just for hard-driving athletes who are at greater risk for all types of sports injuries. All it takes to injure a meniscus or fracture a bone is to slip and fall in the shower or walking down the street.

The good news is, by injecting out-sourced stem cells in injured joints or fracture sites, recovery times can be cut by as much as 25% to 50% of the normal healing time.

In the picture below you can see how weMED injected stem cells into Texas football player Andre Hal’s fractured shoulder blades, which was fractured on October 23, 2018, and accelerated his recovery time by nearly 50% to be fully healed by November 21, 2018 – a short 4 weeks later.

Absolutely, according to clinical studies!

Not only can Stem Cell Therapy help really serious conditions, but it’s especially well-suited for difficult to treat cases that don’t respond well to traditional medicine.

According to the November, 2013  Issue of Experimental and Molecular Medicine, scientific evidence has shown that stem cells have shown excellent results in the following conditions:

  • Musculoskeletal Tissue regeneration: E.G Bone, Cartilage, Tendons, Joint Pain, Meniscus, Ligaments ACL, LDL Rotator Cuff)
  • Chronic Pain and Degenerative Conditions: Osteoarthritis, Discs, Neck, Shoulder, Back, Hip. Elbow, Wrist, Fingers, Knee’s Ankle’s, MP and IP Joints
  • Nervous System: (Multiple Sclerosis, ALS, Parkinson’s, Stroke, Spinal Cord Injury, Neuropathy, Sciatica, Cerebral Palsy, Memory Loss, Brain Trauma
  • Autoimmune Disease: Rheumatoid Arthritis, Macular Degeneration, Hearing Loss, Crohn’s Disease, Graft vs Host Disease (GVHD), Lupus
  • Burns and Wound Healing
  • Heart: Heart Attack recovery, Heart Failure, PAD, COPD
  • Age-related weakness and cognitive decline

Stem Cell therapy is VERY affordable. Unfortunately, health insurance will not cover most stem cell procedures but on average, they are less than 90% cheaper than the cost of invasive surgery. Stem cell therapy for procedures like knee injuries or disk issues can range from 5,000$ to 20,000$

Disk fusions or knee replacements as covered by health insurance can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars and oftentimes don’t get the same successful outcomes that stem cell therapy generates. At weMED we can accommodate nearly all budgets and you can use your HAS or FLEX spending account. At the end of the day, we will assure you a better quality of life at a very affordable price

Generally speaking yes! But it may also depend on where the clinic gets the stem cell and how they determined to apply the stem cell. Among Stem Cell therapies we’ve found that amniotic and umbilical tissue allograft is particularly safe and successful. The procedure has been used in over 300,000 cases without side-effects.

These stem cells also contain growth factors, proteins, and natural cytokines to ensure the best healing response.

Virtually none. We ask that you take it easy for the first 2 – 8 weeks following your procedure so that you don’t disrupt the healing process.

Also, their reception desk is extremely responsive in a good way and you almost never have to talk to an answering machine. A must go for anyone looking for relief!”

Claire D., Yelp Reviews

“Definitely Recommend Dr You , Dr Ma, and other Oriental medical Medicine Practitioners here. Dr You have treated so many patients We referred to him with miracle result, saved so many people’s surgery and big money with his small tiny needles by doing acupuncture.
Our therapists use their fingers to do acupressure massage to help many people with their pain management, but fingers could not work as good as the needles, (those small tiny needles are not painful at all, because it is inserted in the acupuncture points in your body), for the benefit of the acupuncture, please google it, for the Master of Acupuncture, you can come to this clinic.”
