For a lot of people, it’s been a long time since they’ve taken a science class. So when we come across terms like mesenchymal stem cells it can be pretty intimidating. What are they? What do they do? Why will stem cell injections help me heal?
But there is no reason to be intimidated by the scientific name! Mesenchymal stem cells, or MSCs, are simply the incredible cells that differentiate and construct other cells such as osteoblasts (bone cells), chondrocytes (cartilage cells), myocytes (muscle cells), and adipocytes (fat cells).
That’s why stem cell injections can help your body heal faster! It takes the body’s universal building blocks and delivers them directly to the construction site!

Stem cell injections help solve this problem by increasing your body’s own natural repair cells and promote healing.
Stem cells can help heal anything from orthopedic injuries to brain trauma to spinal cord injury.
