What Is Neuropathy?
Neuropathy, commonly known as peripheral neuropathy, is a term for many conditions that involve the peripheral nervous system. In general, this is damage to the vast communication network that sends signals between the brain and spinal cord to other parts of the body.
- Nerve signaling in neuropathy is disrupted in three ways:
- Loss of signals normally sent (like a broken wire)
- Inappropriate signaling when there shouldn’t be any (like static on a telephone line)
- Errors that distort the messages being sent (like a wavy television picture)
Symptoms of Neuropathy
Symptoms of peripheral nerve damage can depend on the type of nerve fibers affected, and the severity of damage.
Motor Nerve Damage
Most commonly associated with:
Fasciculations (uncontrolled muscle twitching visible under the skin) and muscle shrinking
Sensory Nerve Damage
Causes various symptoms because sensory nerves have a broad range of functions. Symptoms could include:
Inability to feel vibrations and touch
Lost sense of your position
Inability to feel pain or temperature changes
Pain (pain receptors can fire randomly. Or the damage can interfere with the signal to the brain, causing you to feel pain from a touch that is normally painless)
Autonomic Nerve Damage
Affects the axons in small-fiber neuropathies. Common symptoms include:
Inability to expand and contract the small blood vessels that regulate blood pressure
Although rare, some people develop problems eating or swallowing if the nerves that control the esophagus are affected
There are several types of peripheral neuropathies, the most common of which is linked to diabetes. Another serious polyneuropathy is Guillain-Barre syndrome, which occurs when the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the nerves in the body. Common types of focal (located to just one part of the body) mononeuropathy include carpal tunnel syndrome, which affects the hand and the wrist, and meralgia paresthetica, which causes numbness and tingling on one thigh. Complex regional pain syndrome is a class of lingering neuropathies where small-fibers are mostly damaged.
stem cell therapy for neuropathy
How It Works
Stem cell therapy with human umbilical cord tissue derived mesenchymal stem cells (HUCT-MSCs) corrects the degenerative process by providing cells that can turn into nerves that replaces the lost or damaged nervous tissue, as well as regenerate the damaged cells. Stem cells do this by secreting healing activators such as growth factors, cytokines, and exosomes to the surrounding environment. This therapy is the most highly sophisticated treatment for pain management since it not only “manages” the pain but also heals and regenerates the tissue naturally. Put simply, stem cells provide the damaged nervous tissue with the biological material needed to have healthy, functioning nerves. In autoimmune related nerve damage, the stem cells regulate the immune system. Signaling the immune system to go from an inflammatory state to an anti-inflammatory state, and stop attacking the bodies nerves.
What locations of neuropathy can be treated with stem cell therapy?
Common areas are feet, lower legs, and hands where pain, burning, tingling, and numbness can develop. This is typically accomplished with a perineural injection. This is an injection of stem cells near the damaged nerve(s). Stem cell therapy can also treat systemic nerve damage, such as that seen in multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, or chronic infections like Guillain-Barre syndrome or Lyme’s disease.
What are the advantages of using allogenic (not the patient’s own) umbilical cord tissue derived stem cells?
- Umbilical cord tissue is one of the most abundant sources of stem cells, producing a greater number and quality of stem cells
- Stem cells are immune privileged, meaning there is no rejection by our bodies when administered
- Using UC-MSC means there’s no need for invasive procedures seen in bone-marrow or adipose derived stem cells. These methods also tend to produce inferior numbers and poorer quality of stem cells
- There is evidence that UC-MSCs are a more viable source compared to other MSC sources. Meaning they perform better at what MSCs do naturally
- UC-MSCs can be administered safely numerous times, each time adding more and more benefit. Unlike steroid injections which end up damaging your joints even more if administered to often
How is Innate Healthcare’s stem cell therapy protocols different from other clinics?
Our regenerative medicines come from the highest quality labs in the U.S. We follow our vast clinical experience and very well researched protocols from all over the world that achieve the best results. In addition, we treat using a very holistic, comprehensive approach. Some patient’s protocols may vary, as everyone is treated according to their unique presentation:
- We treat with very high, and safe, doses.
- Included with the treatment is other forms of healing, such as IV nutrients, and acupuncture, to facilitate the healing.
- Herbal medicines, nutraceuticals, and nutritional guidelines are provided.
- Patients are encouraged to return to the clinic for additional care during following months.
“From a doctor’s perspective, the potential of Umbilical Cord Mesenchymal Stem Cells (UC-MSCs) for neuropathy is exceptionally promising. The prospect of offering patients a treatment modality that goes beyond symptom management to promote actual nerve regeneration is both exciting and transformative.”
– Dr. Travis Whitney, Founder, Innate Healthcare Institute
What To Expect
How it works
Welcome to our website, where we delve into the transformative potential of Umbilical Cord Mesenchymal Stem Cells (UC-MSCs) and exosomes in addressing neuropathy, a condition characterized by nerve damage and dysfunction. UC-MSCs bring a unique arsenal to neuropathic treatment, showcasing their capacity to differentiate into various cell types essential for nerve regeneration. This intrinsic ability allows them to play a pivotal role in repairing damaged neural tissues, potentially offering relief to those grappling with neuropathic symptoms.
Furthermore, the paracrine secretions of UC-MSCs, such as exosomes, emerge as a powerful mechanism in the context of neuropathy. These secretions consist of bioactive molecules that exhibit immunomodulatory effects, anti-inflammatory properties, and growth factors crucial for nerve repair. Through these paracrine actions, UC-MSCs contribute not only to addressing the symptoms but also to fostering an environment conducive to neural healing. Our clinic aims to provide comprehensive insights into the science behind UC-MSC therapy for neuropathy, exploring the latest research, case studies, and the potential impact on improving the quality of life for individuals navigating the challenges of neuropathic conditions. Join us on this journey as we uncover the promising avenues UC-MSCs open for neuropathy treatment and recovery.
