The Truth About Regenerative Medicine

If you've lived in pain for long, chances are you've heard about regenerative medicine. It's growing in popularity and for good reason...it works. But don't take our word for it. We are answering 15 of the most frequently asked questions about regenerative medicine. 

Let's start with the most fundamental question:

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are the basic primary blueprint or primary tissue that forms other tissue. When you're firstborn, a cell from your mother and a cell from your father come together and they start to replicate. When they replicate, they turn into about 500 cells within five days. This is called a blastocyst. Most of those cells are stem cells. These stem cells can change into other tissue. When you have a stem cell and the body signals, "Hey, I need a muscle cell, or a bone cell, or a ligament cell, or a tendon cell, or a nerve cell, or whatever type of cell", the stem cells can change into those cells and make up that body part.
