Adult Stem Cells

More than 40-years ago, researchers discovered that certain cell contained within our bone marrow can perform a variety of healing functions. We call these cells, “adult stem cells.” Your provider my also use the terms- mesenchymal or somatic in place of adult.

Like a college student, these cells still have not decided what type of cell they want to be and they may:

  • Make copies of themselves
  • Become bone, muscle, cartilage, or fat tissue
  • Fight cell death associated with illness or aging
  • Help reduce painful swelling
