STEM CELL THERAPY FOR TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY
Receive Tomorrow’s Treatment – Today!
For those seeking to potentially manage symptoms and slow the progression of this condition, Regenerative Medicine is a natural alternative option.
A new alternative way to help manage the symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury.
With Regenerative Medicine, there is hope for an improved quality of life. Although there is no cure, this therapy has the potential to help manage symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury.
Studies have shown potential improvements such as:
Improved Stamina & Mood
Improved Muscle Functions
Sleep Pattern Improvement
Decreased Chronic Pain
Improved Cognitive Function
A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a disruption to normal brain function caused by a blow, jolt, or other force to the head. Sometimes referred to as craniocerebral trauma, this type of brain dysfunction can also be caused by a sharp object which penetrates the brain tissue, such as a bullet or shrapnel.
TBI is a complex injury with a broad range of potential symptoms and long-term complications. While mild brain injuries may only affect the brain cells temporarily, more serious TBI can result in torn tissue, bleeding, and other physical brain damage. The most severe cases can lead to permanent brain damage or death.
Millions of individuals experience brain injuries every year, with more than half of the cases warranting hospital treatment. Half of all TBIs are caused by motor vehicle accidents, but military personnel in combat zones are also at risk.
Because the brain dictates so many aspects of life, a Traumatic Brain Injury can result in a broad range of symptoms. No two brain injuries are alike, and symptoms may appear immediately or within the days and weeks afterwards. While physical symptoms such as slurred speech, weakness in the arms and legs, serious headache, repeated vomiting or nausea, and others may occur, sensory and cognitive symptoms, as well as personality changes, may also develop. Mood changes, feelings of depression and anxiousness, agitation, light sensitivity, and changes in hearing, taste, or smell can arise. Symptoms and their severity can vary from one patient to the next and may differ depending on whether the injury is mild, moderate, or severe.
Traumatic Brain Injuries do not heal in the same way other injuries do. Recovery is a functional process and typically necessitates rehabilitation. Typically, TBIs require emergency care encompassing a neurological exam and imaging tests to quickly assess the impact of the injury. While mild TBI, or concussion, typically requires close monitoring and rest, moderate to severe TBI may require emergency surgery and medications to limit secondary brain damage. Post-injury care may also comprise rehabilitation services such as physical therapy, speech and language psychology, and psychological services.
Regenerative Medicine Therapy
Because there is currently little that can be done to reverse the initial brain damage caused by trauma, the focus of treatment for an individual with TBI is to prevent further injury. This typically includes ensuring ample oxygen supply to the brain, maintaining blood flow, and controlling blood pressure. One emerging area of treatment is Regenerative Medicine therapy, which holds promise for improving neurological function in patients who have experienced TBI.
When a brain injury occurs, the trauma prompts the immune system to send cells to the injured area. This results in swelling, which can cause significant tissue damage and the death of brain cells, or neurons. By replacing lost neurons with Regenerative Medicine such as stem cell therapy, the functions that are lost as a result of TBI may be restored.
Studies are showing that patients who receive stem cell therapy following a TBI experienced greater improvements in the areas of motor performance, balance, sensation, social cognition, self-care, and communication, compared to the control group.
In both Traumatic Brain Injury and other conditions with neuron death, such as Multiple Sclerosis or Post-Stroke, Regenerative Medicine therapy could help to overcome the loss of neurons and support the complex inter-cellular connections needed for optimal functioning. In particular, stem cells can halt brain damage and promote healing by reducing inflammation and achieving a tissue-protective effect. A combination of treatments, which may encompass traditional therapies as well as other Regenerative Medicine therapies such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy, may be most effective in treating these complex injuries and improving quality of life for patients.
