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

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.

How Much Are You Willing to Pay for Excellent Health?

Optimal physical condition requires excellent sports medicine.

What Is Wealth To You?

It is a question that many of us individually define as wealth and happiness. For some, it is an insurmountable amount of financial abundance and pure luxuries. For others, it is peace, harmony, and freedom that this life has to offer from within us and without in this physical life. But, what about health? It is an asset that makes us feel vulnerable, mortal and fragile that anything can happen at any given time. Once our health is threatened or impacted, everything changes!

The quest to find and sustain excellent health is one that many individuals search for an especially active, amateur or pro athletes. They intuitively know that keeping up with joint health and agility is the core of maintaining top performance and a happy, healthy active lifestyle.

Your health becomes the essence of your being as well the sole dictator of what kind of life you’ll lead. Excellent health is wealth. Without excellent health, how can one work, live, travel, and enjoy the pleasures of life? To be healthy, pain-free, mobile and be in optimal condition is what the average person desires as true happiness.

As time passes, each of us will inevitably age. Our bodies will break down and we’ll have injuries, pains, aches, tears, and sprains. Our knees may give out. Our arms can no longer lift heavy things. It is the natural process of life and “wear and tear” of our bodies calling us to take care of ourselves as a priority.

Sports injuries, knee replacements, and back pain are common maladies of what we see at PreciseCare Regenerative Sports Medicine. The question is what will you be willing to do to repair, rejuvenate or restore your body to its fullest capacity and top performance?

Regenerative stem cell therapy has become one of the top minimally-invasive, safe and effective pioneering treatments in today’s modern medicine. It has proven to recover injured individuals fully and with little downtime, allowing the body to regenerate itself and heal itself.

Some people will wait and prolong the pain and agony. Some will not find value monetarily for such a treatment, but my question is how much are you willing to pay to have a life-long result that will benefit and fortify you throughout your lifetime? A treatment can be the same cost of a cruise or that European trip. But what will last is a treatment to revitalize your body, that is, a body that you will live in every day and will allow you to live the active lifestyle you want!

If a dilemma surfaces about your health and injury, take a moment to reflect what kind of life you want. What kind of sports medicine doctor do you want?

What kind of safe, effective treatment is considered holistic and regenerative? What have other patients experienced? These are some questions to ask yourself when the time comes or better yet, prevent it from getting worse. It starts with your value of health and what price you are willing to pay for it.
