Amniotic Stem Cells Facts vs. Fiction

The search for the “holy grail” is an ongoing quest for human instinct and survival. The hottest topic in the stem cell medical industry is now about amniotic stem cells.

What are amniotic stem cells and what's the power and intrigue about them?

Amniotic stem cells are a mixture of stem cells that can be obtained from the amniotic fluid of a baby fetus in its sac. There are few cells in the amniotic fluid or as some call it “fetal urine.” Though rich in growth factors and certain other anti-inflammatory agents, their regenerative capacity is limited when compared to mesenchymal stem cells.

However, many commercially available amniotic products are being used as regenerative treatments specifically in orthopedics. The use of amniotic stem cells to reverse anti-aging has no scientific or medical backing yet, it is being marketed as a “beauty trend” to combat aging.

Further, the question is being a foreign source to your body, are amniotic products safe and would they be effective in your body?

How does this compare with using your own stem cells to restore and naturally regenerate?

We don’t have definitive answers to these questions yet. The hype around amniotic stem cells can be a dangerous claim. It's often assumed that as you get older your own cells may not be as strong as needed to effectively repair, although there is no scientific basis to that argument.

Currently, stem cell treatments, especially in orthopedics, can help repair and regenerate, but they do not turn the clock back by many years as some may assume.

Sorry no “fountain of youth” yet!

Another reason patients may look toward an outside source is that they are apprehensive about the harvesting process. Though again, harvesting your own cells is a very short minimally invasive procedure and leaves absolutely no footprint or scars.

Some reasons practices may not harvest your own cells can be reasons of convenience, lack of familiarity and experience.

For most of us, it’s easy to pull something out of a prepared vial and inject rather than performing a laborious process of preparing your own cells.

These vials of amniotic fluid/cells become like “shelf products” and are used as an as-needed basis with no real evidence of their efficacy and very little understanding of the potential risks involved. Right now, there are more questions than answers when it comes to amniotic products, hopefully, in time we will learn more about them.

A more effective and promising, non-surgical treatment is regenerative cell therapy. Regenerative cell therapy or “stem cell therapy” in mainstream terms, utilize your own regenerative cells to heal and restore your damaged ligaments, cartilage or menisci, whether it’s a knee, shoulder, hip or any painful joint in your body. Give your body a chance to heal itself naturally with your own cells rather than rely on an outside source.

Sports Injury, Recovery, and Therapy

sports therapy

How to Prevent Fatigue and Burnout

Athletes understand that competing comes with a price of potential injury that could change their sports careers, especially if they don't properly address their health conditions.

Since athletes are mostly Type A personalities, excellence and relentless training come with an overwhelming toll.

Fatigue and recovery from the competition and ongoing workout can be a hard journey to sustain. And it takes professional therapists and doctors to assist in sports injury, recovery, and therapy.

What do athletes need to know about their fitness regimen

As an athlete or a person with an active lifestyle suffers from a repeated or one-time injury, there will come a time when it’s necessary to prepare your body to return to your sport with endurance, power, and agility.

This type of sports therapy, known as “return to play therapy,” is specific to the sport you play.

With a "return to play" approach, you're guided through the proper steps and exercises to help you recover quickly. You learn how to condition your body and the injured site to return to rigorous play.

Movement patterns and imbalances are assessed and corrected to prevent fewer injuries including repetitive motion injuries, rotator cuff injuries, and overuse injuries.

At PreciseCare, we offer a comprehensive treatment and rehab program to ensure the highest level of recovery and sports therapy to allow athletes to return to their play and respective competitive sports.

With this integrated sports injury, recovery, and prevention program, we can help personalize individual’s goals, sports lifestyle, and training to deliver the most optimized outcome while treating and healing the root of the injury.

Another major element is muscle fatigue.

Muscle fatigue is an exercise-induced reduction in maximal voluntary muscle force, which may be caused by peripheral changes at the level of the muscle (peripheral fatigue).

It may also occur because the central nervous system fails to drive the moto-neurons adequately (central fatigue).

Fatigue is inherently a part of exercising but in our training plan and preparation, we can identify imbalanced patterns at the core of injury causality and correct them through targeted training.

Depending on the nature and extent of the injury, therapeutic exercises, home exercise programs, and manual techniques are included as well in the program.

Our rehab program and regenerative cell treatments are carefully designed to help with preventative injuries for future play while healing any injured areas as holistically as possible.

To learn more about our sports therapy program and regenerative treatments for your knee, shoulder, ankle, hip or spine, request additional information or to learn more give us a call or schedule an initial 1:1 evaluation.

Spectrum of Regenerative Treatments

regenerative treatments

Regenerative cell treatments.

Sports Medicine or Regenerative Medicine is a specialized branch of medicine that deals with physical fitness and offers an array of treatments and prevention of injuries related to exercise and sports. There is a wide spectrum of regenerative treatments that help people recover and return to their active lifestyles after an injury. Unfortunately, none of these treatments are FDA approved yet.

The goal of regenerative medicine is to help you heal and give you a higher quality of life. It is best to assess the various types of regenerative treatments to determine which type is most suitable for your condition. Not all regenerative treatments are equal in value and effectiveness. Each regenerative treatment has its pros and cons based on scientific evidence.

The concept of regenerative medicine is regenerating damaged areas and repairing the cells. It’s a revolutionary approach that will change the way medicine is practiced, in lots of ways similar to the discovery of penicillin in the last century.

Our bodies are full of regenerative cells.  It’s a matter of knowing how to apply this concept in a non-invasive, natural treatment and in the safest and most effective way. With anything new, lack of standardization can make it confusing to the patients as to what treatment are they exactly getting.

It is becoming more and more common now for mushrooming stem cell clinics to use so-called external sources such as amniotic fluid, placenta tissues, and umbilical cords cells. Some even mis-label or call them baby cells; this gives a false impression that these cells may be more potent than one’s own cells.

Currently, a whole host of companies are providing an array of stem cells that are being grown in laboratories that sterilize, harvest and package the cells with added stimulants which are chemicals that can biologically alter the cells. How much efficacy is present in these cells after package and production is an important question to ask. Sterilization does not guarantee a foreign disease from entering your body because it is introducing cells from someone else’s body. This can be risky.

Regenerative cells from your own body can be extremely safe provided they are harvested and isolated in a proper manner. Otherwise, they can be equally ineffective and even harmful. It’s about high time FDA regulates this industry before people lose faith in this wonderful discovery all due to the greed of few snake oil salesman practices.

Stem cell therapies have great potential. Let’s not over-sell their promise without proper research and evaluation. Let’s establish standardized protocols and safety standards that can assure some uniformity for your treatments.

The general intent of regenerative treatments is to regenerate and repair and not just treat symptomatic relief. Manipulation of cells such as adding chemicals or storing cells is neither safe nor effective. There is a risk of introducing foreign sources into your body.

A metaphor to illustrate a current array of regenerative treatments is to compare it to that of consuming a fruit juice.

“You can get fresh pressed juice from fruit itself, or you can get juice reconstituted from a concentrate or you can drink something that is fruit flavored only mixed with other chemicals”. Similarly in regenerative treatments, depending on the source of cells and concentration of application, it will determine great results or no results from that particular regenerative treatment. Make an Informed decision by understanding the spectrum of regenerative treatments.

The Inside Look of a Pro MMA Fighter’s Journey

Regenerative Cell Therapy

Dr. Goswami and Evan, Pro MMA Fighter at the Newport Beach clinic.

Pro athletes know that taking care of their health and well-being is of utmost priority. When a serious injury occurs, their career is on the line. It can be a threatening and unpredictable situation that every athlete dreads. Every pro athlete wants to know they can go to a trustworthy, reliable, highly-experienced sports medicine doctor that can guide them in the right direction and offer them the proper medical treatments for their injury in an era where “snake-oil doctors” are running rampant.

Evan Gubera is a pro MMA fighter based out of San Jose, CA and is currently under regenerative cell treatment with the respected medical practice, PreciseCare in Newport Beach, CA.

Before he turned pro in 2016, he was ranked in the Top 10 of California Amateur MMA fighters. He has been in martial arts now for 20 years. Besides competing, Evan runs a competitive amateur boxing program where his kids and adult students compete all over California. He is on the American Kickboxing Academy's professional team and has been training alongside UFC Veterans Daniel Cormier, Luke Rockwood, Josh Thompson, and Cain Velasquez in the past 3 years.

Evan had the great honor of being trained and coached by famous Coach Walter "POPS" Carvalho where he was the main pupil and prodigy in his last couple years of coaching. The boxing program he is currently running was handed down to Evan by Coach “POPS” which was an even greater honor for him today.

Right before Evan’s awaited professional debut fight, he blew out his knee 10 days prior and Evan Gubera is sharing his story in this video:

It doesn’t matter if you are a pro, or everyday active athlete, joint health and overall fitness require special attention. It’s never too late or too old to consider ways to optimize your health and care for your life-long body that you will be residing in.
