Adipose vs. Bone Marrow or Placental Derived Stem Cells

laboratory cells

An effective and common procedure that we offer at Piedmont Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation is Stem Cell Regenerative Therapy. This treatment is typically brought to the attention of patients with degenerative arthritis, musculoskeletal disorders, or peripheral arterial related disease. However, not all stem cell therapy transplants are identical. At our clinic, stem cells are derived from adipose (Mesenchyme) tissue, bone marrow, or placental tissue (from the amniotic sac).

The procedure for harvesting autologous stem cells (stem cells from the patient’s own body), such as adipose and bone marrow-derived stem cells, is performed as an outpatient procedure with little to no downtime. It is also generally not overly painful.

Can Stem Cell Therapy Help My RSD/CRPS?

Stem cell therapy help my RSD

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, or Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome, is a painful disorder that is a result of a malfunctioning nervous system. Particularly, the autonomic nervous system is affected. This is the portion of the nervous system that monitors injury sites, which is why RSD/CRPS tends to develop after a traumatic incident or injury. RSD/CRPS causes sufferers to experience hypersensitivity and increased pain in reaction to a stimulus, or sometimes no stimulus at all. RSD/CRPS is notoriously difficult to control and there are often no good alternatives, however, at Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, we offer several treatment approaches, some of which are new – Stem Cell Treatment for RSD/CRPS is one of them.

Stem Cell Research Throughout the Years

Stem cell history

Although we love educating our patients on the latest stem cell news, sometimes it’s interesting to look back at the history of science to see where it all stemmed from! Have you ever been curious about stem cell research and how it has developed over the years? If so, keep reading on…

Scientists from all over the world have been fascinated by the idea of stem cells ever since the 19th century. No rock was left unturned as they sought to study plants, animals, and people to have a better understanding of biological life. In the late 1800s, with advancing microscope technology, cell propagation and differentiation were witnessed for the first time. This meant that cells were being recognized as building blocks of life, and that there was a lot more to understand about human biological development.
