Multiple Sclerosis (MS) causes dysfunctions of the neurons as a result of myelin destruction (a substance that surrounds the body’s nerve cells). Myelin is a fatty material that plays a vital role in the nervous system because it enables information transmission between neurons.


Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms are:

    • Vision problems. Visual problems are one of the most common symptoms of MS.
    • Tingling and numbness. MS affects nerves in the brain and spinal cord (the body’s message center).
    • Pain and spasms.
    • Fatigue and weakness.
    • Balance problems and dizziness.
    • Bladder and bowel dysfunction.
    • Sexual dysfunction.
    • Cognitive problems
    • Emotional problems


The causes of Multiple Sclerosis are still unknown; however, it is considered an autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues.

The effects of this condition vary from one patient to another. Some patients may have mild signs and symptoms and may not require treatment while others will have challenges getting around and performing daily activities.


Multiple Sclerosis Treatment

There’s currently no cure for MS, but a number of treatments can help control the condition.

The treatment you need will depend on the specific symptoms and difficulties you have.

It may include:

    • treating relapses with short courses of steroid medicine to speed up recovery
    • specific treatments for individual MS symptoms
    • treatment to reduce the number of relapses using medicines called disease-modifying therapies

Disease-modifying therapies may also help to slow or reduce the overall worsening of disability in people with a type of MS called relapsing remitting MS, and in those with a type called secondary progressive MS who have relapses.

Unfortunately, there’s currently no treatment that can slow the progress of a type of MS called primary progressive MS, or secondary progressive MS in the absence of relapses.

Many therapies aiming to treat progressive MS are currently being researched.


Multiple Sclerosis Treatment with Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy:

In multiple sclerosis, for some reason T cells (immune system cells) pass from the bloodstream and into the central nervous system. It is thought that dysfunctional microglia may be responsible for the initial onslaught. This rampant inflammation leads to the loss of neurons, axons and glial cells leaving the myelin sheath compromised. As the myelin sheath disappears in multiple areas, it leaves scars (sclerosis). The areas without the protective myelin sheath are called plaque or lesions. As the lesions worsen, more axons and nerve fibers are damaged or die resulting in communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body.

Standard Multiple Sclerosis treatment consist of medication which only helps manage the symptoms by suppressing, slowing down or altering the body’s immune system activity. These drugs don’t repair the damaged myelin but instead exposes one to fatal and life-threatening side effects.
Multiple sclerosis Regenerative stem cell therapy works more effectively on the disease.

Regenerative Stem Cell Treatment for MS is showing very positive outcomes for patients due to their ability to Reduce MS Disease Activity and Augment Repair.


Beneficial Actions of Stem Cells for MS:

    • cross the endothelial brain barrier
    • migrate to sites of injury (chemotaxis)
    • communicate with and alter nearby cells (paracrine effect)
    • encourage existing cells to self-repair (autocrine effect)
    • Immune modulation
    • transform into neurons and glial cells
    • promote the formation of nerve cell axons (axogenesis)
    • release neuroprotective factors
    • encourage existing cells to adapt (neuroplasticity)


Results Achieved with MS Regenerative Stem Cell Treatment:

    • Reduced or Removal of Lesions
    • Improved Mobility
    • Reduced Pain Levels
    • Reduced numbness
    • Improved Vision
    • Bowl and Bladder Normalisation
    • Improved Energy Levels
    • Improved Emotions


What are the top Benefits of Non-surgical Regenerative Treatments?

With so many options out there, you may be wondering what benefits choosing Non-surgical Regenerative Treatments provides.  Over all Regenerative treatments are minimally invasive, non-surgical same day procedures with no risk of rejection, minimal recovery time and minimal worry. You are fully awake and ready to go home within a few hours after injections in the affected area.


Here are the top benefits to be aware of:

Avoid surgery and its risks and many complications

Regenerative Therapy is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure, which gives patients an alternative to painful surgery and lengthy recovery. The procedure is performed in an outpatient setting and only takes a few hours. No general anaesthesia is required and most patients don’t need post-operative pain medication. Also, patients typically return to work within a week or two (unless told otherwise by the doctor) and they resume physical activity much faster than after invasive hip surgery.


Minimal post-procedural recovery time

One of the most time consuming factors of any injury is not always the treatment itself, but actually the recovery time. With Regenerative therapies, there is far less risk involved than surgery and recovery time is much shorter compared to surgery.


No use of general anaesthesia

Do you not like the way general anaesthesia makes your feel? Or do you simply get anxious at the thought of being put under? Regenerative therapy may be just what you need as it does not require the use of general anaesthesia. It provides a safe increasingly effective non-surgical alternative to treating medical conditions using the body’s own natural ability to repair itself without the use of medication.


Same day procedure

The best part, after comprehensive examination and review of your case, blood tests & radio-imaging scans are done to establish a baseline for your pre-existing condition, is that our Regenerative Therapies are a non-invasive treatment and an outpatient same day procedure, where the Consultant will decide which line of Regenerative Therapy is most suited to your case. In certain cases it may be a combination of more than one treatment protocol. For some patients however, the complete protocol is a series of injections in several treatment sessions.


Safe procedures with No risk of rejection and No communicable disease transmission

Your immune system has no reason to attack your cells and there is no risk of contracting a transmittable infectious disease from a donor patient also. In fact, studies thus far have indicated no safety issues with fat-derived autologous (from self) cells. Because they are your own cells, the risk of rejection is eliminated.

The increased risk of heart attack, as found to be associated with hip replacement surgery, is not present with Regenerative therapies, either. Like any procedure, there is a minute risk of infection at the sample collection and at the hip injection site. To minimize that risk the procedure is carried out under strict sterile conditions.

Am I a candidate for the Medica Institute Regenerative therapies?

In general, Regenerative Medica Institute Regenerative Therapies can be utilised by anyone, regardless of the age, race, or gender. However, in order to determine if you are a good candidate and will benefit the most from Regenerative treatment, you will need to schedule an appointment with our Clinic to have an assessment done by our Consultant, who will review your medical records and determine if you are a qualified candidate for our therapy. The choice of treatment is then at the discretion of the Consultant and is based on your unique case.


Regenerative Therapy may help patients who don’t respond to typical drug treatment, want to reduce their reliance on medication, or are looking for safe treatment alternatives. Regenerative treatments are not suitable for all conditions and all patients. The consultant will be able to advise if you are a suitable candidate.

Your first step to exploring your treatment options is scheduling a consultation with our Consultant. To do so call us on 020 8168 2000 or alternatively book a consultation online or request a call back today!
