If your child suffered an injury or another incident before or after birth and has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, stem cell therapy may be an option for your family. Cerebral palsy is one of the conditions most commonly treated by stem cell therapy, due to the promising results seen with them in clinical trials in recent decades.
How Can Stem Cell Therapy Help Treat Cerebral Palsy?
The goal of stem cell therapy for patients with cerebral palsy is to repair or replace any damaged cells in the brain and those that aren’t functioning properly with new, healthy, fully functioning ones.
The brain damage found in persons with CP often creates problems in communication with and control over the musculoskeletal system. While CP cannot currently be cured, many patients have seen improvements in their symptoms and their lives after stem cell treatment.
The peptides, cytokines, and other proteins and growth factors present in the treatment work with the patient’s body to repair and regrow healthy cellular tissue, myelin sheathing, and scarred neurons.
With more than 70 stem cell trials for cerebral palsy worldwide from 2011-2018, there are many promising outcomes. In fact, cerebral palsy was the very first neurological disorder to get widely treated with stem cells, and because of the numerous successes on that front, research on stem cells expanded, and now many other neurological conditions are also aided by stem cell therapies.
The stem cells we use are called mesenchymal stem cells and are derived from the umbilical cord ethically, safely, and at no risk or harm to baby or mother. The youth and vitality of these cells are second to none, which is why they are our sole choice when helping patients heal from neurological and other painful conditions.
Luckily, at our practice in Mexico, we can offer advanced stem cell protocol not currently available in the US, but which has seen much success.
