"Exosome therapy is a way of relieving pain without the need to resort to surgery or harsh drugs with unwanted side effects.
What is exosome therapy?
This is the newest frontier in cellular regeneration techniques, following in the footsteps of other proven therapies like stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma. This therapy can improve signaling between cells, reduce inflammation, cause cells to regenerate, and modify the body"s immune response when it"s not healthy.
Understanding Exosomes
Exosomes are small vesicles released by all the cells, but especially by stem cells. They are, essentially, little messengers carrying important signaling proteins and genetic information from cell to cell.
Their primary job is to act as a connection between all our cells, facilitating communication whether cells are near to one another or distant. The information they carry tells our cells to turn on or off certain functions or to react in a certain way.
What do exosomes have to do with the pain?
When our stem cells are communicating well with each other and doing their job, they rush to the site of injury and begin repairing tissues. As we age, they become less and less good at this process. Injuries take longer to heal and degenerative conditions overwhelm us.
It"s not just age that can cause a problem. Environmental factors, genetic disorders, and chronic diseases like Lyme, autoimmune disorders, or chronic inflammation can interfere or dysregulate the signaling between cells, leaving them unable to reduce inflammation and repair tissues.
Exosome therapy is responsible, among other things, for assisting both the T-cells and NK cells in our immune system. T-cells are responsible for calming an immune response, while NK cells are responsible for ramping up that response. We need both, but when NK cells aren"t "turned off" or T-cells aren"t "turned on," pain and inflammation are often the results.
When exosomes are delivered directly into an affected joint, they start signaling to the cells to return to healthy function. They send proteins into the walls of the cells telling the cells how to regulate themselves. There are two stages to the body"s response. In the first stage, which happens almost immediately, the inflammation response is turned off. In the second stage, the exosomes basically tell the cells how to regulate themselves correctly in the future, leading to long-term relief."
