In the last 20 years, stem cell therapy Mexico and other countries has had an incredible boom in modern medicine. Although at first it was believed almost unattainable for many, thanks to its advances and discoveries, it is now available in more and more countries for a greater number of people seeking an alternative or less invasive treatment.
Recently, sports figures have made use of this innovative therapy. For example, when famous Real Madrid soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo suffered a knee injury after a match, he opted for stem cell treatment. Rafael Nadal resorted precisely to the same treatment resorted years before for a similar injury. Similarly, other athletes such as Garrett Richard, Kobe Bryant, and baseball pitcher Bartolo Colon have benefited from this therapy. Why have they made this decision? Because when a high-performance athlete suffers an injury, his objective is not only to solve the problem but to do it in the shortest possible time and safely.
In cases like these, stem cells have contributed to the rapid rehabilitation of injuries at specific body areas and have been an alternative route to surgery. Currently, stem cell therapy Mexico has also proven to be a successful treatment for chronic diseases.
How does stem cell therapy work?
It is worth mentioning that a stem cell is the raw material of the organism, from which all other cells that are destined to carry out different specific functions within the organism originate. These can be brain cells, blood cells, bone cells, muscle cells, etc. Stem cell therapy Mexico consists of introducing new cells to the body to restore the function in the damaged part of the body and thus treat the disease or injury directly and specifically.
Among the diseases that it is believed to cure or contribute to its improvement are cancer, heart problems, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, burns, Parkinson’s, osteoarthritis, alopecia, among others. That is why surgeons and scientists are very interested in researching this therapy to understand its benefits better since it is an opportunity to treat root diseases.
What are the benefits of stem cells?
Stem cell therapy Mexico offers significant benefits to patients struggling with constant pain, injury, or chronic illnesses like those mentioned above. One of the potential characteristics it claims to have is its ability to prevent further damage, regenerate healthy cells, and even repair other diseased cells. Additionally, stem cell therapy can also provide patients with at least the following five essential benefits:
- Avoid surgery
In a specific example in orthopedics, when the patient has an injury, but there is no complete break of the bone, this may be an alternative, thus avoiding surgery and, therefore, a prolonged recovery. Moreover, perhaps a patient who has undergone knee replacement in Mexico is looking to optimize his rehabilitation, so this therapy can also be combined with his conventional treatment. Health & Wellness Bazaar has also had great success in spinal disc regeneration in Mexico and regenerating articular cartilage.
In recent years, it has been discovered that stem cells are located in multiple tissues of the body, which makes it possible for it to be an accessible product. In fact, it is also possible to store them. In some places, the possibility has been raised of creating cell banks that allow greater access to them and enhance their use.
- Easy to obtain
It is necessary to mention that different types of stem cells can be used, such as adult, embryonic, perinatal, or reprogrammed cells. This classification is made according to the origin of its location. One of the most widely used are adult cells that can be obtained from skin tissue, adipose tissue (from the abdomen), bone marrow, and other places in the same patient’s body.
- Little invasive
Stem cell therapy Mexico is a procedure that allows patients to avoid a lengthy rehabilitation process, as it occurs after certain surgeries. Therefore, it will enable patients to return to their daily activities in a short time. It is a quick and straightforward procedure that is generally painless.
- Low cost
Years ago, obtaining and treating stem cells increased their cost beyond the reach of many people. However, thanks to research and the expansion of its use today, it is available to a greater number of people. Thanks to medical tourism in Tijuana, it is also possible to enjoy specialized care combined with comfortable conditions at a really low price.
Are there any downsides to using stem cells?
Although this therapy has given excellent results to patients who have used it, some have reservations. We explain why below.
- Where do stem cells come from?
One of the first sources to obtain stem cells is from 3–5-day old embryos in IVF clinics. At this point, embryonic stem cells have the characteristic of being pluripotent; that is, they can become practically any type of cell within the body. But this created a moral and ethical conflict in its use. For this reason, the National Institutes of Health decided to regulate research protocols on the use and research of embryonic cells. However, the discovery that stem cells can be obtained from other parts of the body, such as fat from the abdomen or umbilical cord, has allowed scientists to focus their research on more accessible uses. For this reason, at present, the most widely used cell types are adult cells, which generally come from tissue from the same patient.
- Its wide use
As we have already seen, the possibilities of using stem cells are truly vast. As there are so many diseases where they can be used, it is necessary to investigate each of these diseases, a natural process of medicine that logically requires a lot of time and investment. And although this field has made significant advancements, even specialists have not been able to determine which type of stem cell is ideal for all diseases. That is why many clinics have decided to focus on treating only certain conditions to optimize their use.
- Its effects
An undeniable reality is that all medical treatment has both benefits and risks—some of them, to a greater or lesser extent depending on the situation. Since the field of use of stem cells is so extensive, there can be different reactions depending on each organism. Although today it is considered a low-risk therapy in the short term, time and science will determine the possible long-term effects. A process that practically all medical treatments that exist today go through.
What else should you know
