Restorative cell therapy uses the healing cells normally found in the human body to treat diseases and injuries. These cells thrive in your body throughout your lifetime. Their job is to keep you healthy by triggering the many activities needed to build the new tissues and repair injuries.
Depending on the type of restorative cells used for your treatment, they may come from your own body or from another person who has donated them, much the same way people donate organs. The cells are harvested, purified and concentrated, then injected into the targeted area.
One of today’s most innovative cellular therapies are tiny packets of biochemicals. These packets are released by many cells in your body and can be easily obtained from body fluids.
After cells release the packets, the packets then discharge their biochemicals, such as growth factors and specialized proteins needed for metabolism. The biochemicals communicate with the nearby cells, triggering them to begin healing activities.
In most cases, your provider begins your treatment with conservative therapies that give your body’s own restorative cells enough time to heal the problem. For example, natural healing is supported by temporarily immobilizing the foot and ensuring you don’t place more stress on the damaged tissues.
But sometimes you need the extra boost from restorative cell therapy because a foot or ankle injury exceeds your body’s healing resources.
You may have a severe injury or diseased tissues that are too slow to heal because they don’t have a good blood supply. Since restorative cells travel through the bloodstream, they can’t get to the problem and heal if circulation is blocked.
Your Westchester Podiatric Healing Medicine provider may recommend restorative cell therapy for conditions such as:
Though restorative cell therapy isn’t usually the first line of treatment for foot and ankle problems, it can significantly improve any pain and symptoms that still remain despite conservative treatments. Many patients find that the healing boost they get with restorative cells helps them avoid surgery.
