Join us for a Regenerative Medicine Workshop at Boost Health in Reno!

In very exciting news, Boost Reno is now offering regenerative medicine (i.e. stem cell therapy) to treat chronic pain and inflammation. Regenerative medicine is one of the fastest growing areas of medicine, which is why Boost is hosting a series of workshops designed to introduce our patients to this innovative new therapy and answer any questions you may have. Join us for a free regenerative medicine workshop March 24, March 28 or April 12—just call the office at 775-525-5624 to reserve your spot. Seats are limited, so don’t wait!

What is Regenerative Medicine?

Unlike current clinical strategies that focus on treating symptoms, regenerative medicine focuses on healing and regenerating the damaged tissues that are causing those symptoms through the application of stem cells. The Mayo Clinic calls stem cells “the body’s raw materials—cells from which all other cells with specialized functions are generated.” These are primordial cells, the only ones capable of dividing into either new stem cells or specialized cells used in the blood, brain, bone, or muscles of the heart. No other cell shares this ability, which is what makes stem cells the cornerstone of regenerative medicine. They can be guided into becoming specific cells, which means targeted regeneration and repair in specific tissues that have experienced damage or disease.

Our bodies use stem cells to repair themselves, grow and develop, fix injuries, and maintain the body by replacing cells as they die. But as we age, stem cell production naturally declines. As we use them up, they aren’t able to regenerate as quickly as they did when we were young.

At birth, we have 1 mesenchymal stem cell for every 10,000 cells. By age 16, the ratio is 1 in 40,000. By age 50, it could be as low as 1 mesenchymal stem cell for every 400,000 cells, which means our bodies’ healing power has diminished 40 times. By age 80, we generally have 1 mesenchymal stem cell for every 2,000,000 cells. This decline explains why it’s harder for our bodies to repair themselves the older we become. In short, fewer stem cells means less healing potential.

Regenerative Medicine Applications

Stem cell therapy is increasingly being used as an alternative to joint replacement therapy. It means patients can avoid the trauma of surgery and the daily mild to moderate pain that persists for many people after these procedures. Stem cell therapy is also being used to treat a range of autoimmune, neurological, inflammatory, orthopedic conditions, as well as traumatic injury. Studies have also looked at stem cell therapy for the treatment of lupus, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Crohn’s, ALS, CODP, and stroke recovery, and other conditions.

So how does stem cell therapy work? A licensed and trained medical professional, like our nurse practitioner here at Boost, injects human cellular tissue directly into the site of injury or inflammation. Unlike other treatments used to address joint, shoulder, knee and arthritis pain, stem cell therapy does one thing only—it grows new tissue. Whatever these cells come into contact with, they begin to replicate to make new, healthy cells. The results are truly astounding.
