Brain injury (BI) is a type of “neurotrauma” caused by external or internal forces that disrupt the functioning of the brain. BI can result in a range of physical, cognitive, emotional, and/or behavioral effects, and can have outcomes varying from recovery to disability and death.
Conventional medical therapies for both traumatic (TBI) and acquired brain injury (ABI) emphasize the pharmacological management of symptoms in combination with rehabilitation.
How Stem Cells Can Help Brain Injury?
With the advancement of stem cell treatments in China now you have a novel treatment option for Brain Injury. Unlike standard treatments, our stem cell regimen is different in the way that we target to repair the brain tissue damage itself and recover functions. Stem cell treatment focuses on the root of the problem and not the symptoms.
Cell death occurs when cells are injured. However, these dead cells are surrounded by damaged and healthy cells. Stem cells have the potential to stimulate the healing of these injured cells by the secretion of cytokines, such as nerve growth factor to promote the body’s self-repair mechanisms.
The objective of the treatment is to repair the injured cell area around the lesion. This will lead to improved symptoms in physique, movements and intelligence. The majority of patients show improvements right after the first or second transplant. They continue to improve for about 6 months to 1 year before the final results settle in. For Brain Injury patients the achieved results are permanent.
The effectiveness of stem cell treatment for brain injury sequelae is 84.3%. Improvements seen are as follows:
- Reduction of excessive muscle tone of the paralyzed limbs
- Improved flexibility
- Improved coordination
- Increased muscle strength and exercise capability
- Improved feeling in paralyzed limbs
- Improved blood circulation
- Normalized skin temperature
- Increased intellectual abilities like communication skills, logical analytical ability, understanding, and memory
