29 Jul Regenerative Medicine for Accident Injuries
Millions of motor vehicle accidents occur yearly in the United States. Some of these auto crashes are fatal, and the victims do not live to tell the story. Many are lucky to escape road accidents with injuries ranging from minor scratches to fractures, burns, internal injuries, amputated limbs, and many other tragic conditions that reduce the quality of life of accident victims. Researchers are toiling day and night for ways in which accident victims could live better, healthier lives. Over the years, they have come up with groundbreaking innovations such as the mind-controlled robotic arm and regenerative procedures.
What is regenerative medicine?
One of these groundbreaking innovations in regenerative medicine. Though regenerative medicine has been around for decades, researchers are discovering more of its uses by the day. Regenerative medicine involves procedures, such as stem cell and platelet-rich plasma therapy that seek to heal damaged organs in the body using the body’s natural healing agents like stem cells, exosomes, and platelet-rich plasma.
Researchers have found that when these natural healing agents are injected into a site of injury, they could help regrow new, healthy cells or communicate with the damaged cells and tell them how to repair themselves. Stem cell therapy, for example, involves the injection of undifferentiated stem cells into injured areas. These stem cells then divide into other types of cells that can help grow muscles, tissues, and bones.
How can accident victims benefit from regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine has been found effective in treating common accident injuries such as whiplash, spinal cord injury, torn muscles and ligaments, and herniated discs. Regenerative medicine repairs and restores damaged cells, strengthening damaged organs and restoring the quality of life for victims. Many accident victims with severe spinal and orthopedic injuries are currently benefiting from these non-invasive and restorative procedures.
A particularly motivating clinical study is one involving an accident victim paralyzed from the neck down in 2016. Kristopher Boesen had no hope of recovery until he received stem cell injections. Today, he has gained full control of his hands and arms. He feeds himself and even lifts weight to strengthen his upper body. Kris, as well as hundreds of other accident victims, have benefited from the restorative yet non-invasive powers of regenerative medicine.
Many clinical studies are still ongoing to further strengthen our understanding of regenerative procedures and how they can help accident victims. In the coming years, many accident victims will be able to live more independently without undergoing rounds of painful and expensive surgeries. Regenerative procedures often only involve transporting cells, exosomes, or platelet-rich plasma into the body with an injection. Most of the procedures are outpatient procedures, and most patients can go back to their regular activities in just a few days.
