What is MSC as it Pertains to Stem Cell Therapy?

Bay Colony Chiropractic - Stem Cell Therapy

Greetings to all from your friends at Bay Colony Chiropractic serving all of Galveston County, Texas and the surrounding area.  We produce podcasts and blogs as a public service to educate the general public about how and why Americans increasingly include chiropractic care in their pain management plan.  We educate the public on the fact that the American medical community increasingly refer their patients out to chiropractors as an increasingly effective alternative to invasive surgeries and opioid-based pain management. 

We invite you to listen and read along with Dr. Sanders as today she discusses Mesenchymal (MSC) stem cells therapy.


Narrator:  Welcome to the “Regenerative Wellness Podcast with Dr. Sanders”.  I’m Darren Kincaid along with Dr. Donna Sanders from Bay Colony Chiropractic here in Dickinson, Texas.  Dr. Sanders has been practicing chiropractic’s for over 30 years staying on the forefront of the most comprehensive and advanced chiropractic care techniques available today. This podcast is dedicated to educating the people of Galveston county and the surrounding area on how to live younger, stronger, and better lives. The topic of today’s podcast is: What is MSC as it Pertains to Stem Cell Therapy?

OK Dr. Sanders. In the first three episodes we got though the basics of stem cells, stem cell therapy, and regenerative wellness is, that’s high-level stuff and important to know as we get deeper into this fascinating subject. Now for today’s topic let’s get a little more technical. There is an acronym called “MSC” that we should get to know. Now I know what MSC translates to but I really don’t know how to pronounce it. Can you help us out with that?

Dr. Sanders: Yes. That’s a common problem around here because I’m in Texas. Here in Texas we pronounce it “Mez-en-ki-mall” stem cells, but in other areas of the world they say  “Ma-zinc-a-mull” stem cells. So in today’s conversation we’re going to call them “MSC” so we don’t have to get into that argument.

Narrator: OK. Sounds great. Being a Texas boy myself I definitely get you on that one. So, let’s talk about MSC. Why is that important for stem cell therapy patients or people who might be interested in it to know? What is MSC and why do we need to know about it?

Dr. Sanders: Well, MSC’s are a specific stem cell type that are very immature. They work in four different ways. They control inflammation in the body, they modulate or balance the immune system, they stimulate regeneration, and they reduce scarring. Basically, when they are entered into your body it’s an immature little baby stem cell that has a job to do. It is undifferentiated so it can go to any body part and stimulate that body part to regenerate its own cells.

Narrator: OK, so why is that so important for someone who has gone through stem cell therapy? Is it because you can just put in one type of stem cell and it basically does the job for everything?

Dr. Sanders: Correct.  So the other types of stem cells, for example the CD-34 stem cell, it is a very specific job-oriented stem cell. It goes to specific tissue types such as blood, ligaments, and joints. Whereas the MSC’s can replicate cells in any part of the body. Now the MSC’s don’t duplicate themselves. When they go to that body part they release specific types of molecules that stimulate growth of cells on that body part.

Narrator: OK, so is MSC pretty much what you use constantly for your stem cell therapy, or does it just depend on the person’s ailment for the type of stem cell therapy that you use?

Dr. Sanders: We’re using umbilical cord stem cells and they are a high concentration of CD-34 cells and MSC’s. But when the MSC’s get into your body they actually duplicate themselves and you end up with more MSC’s as time goes on. So we are using both because we are specifically using umbilical cord stem cells.

Narrator: All right, so that sounds like it’s going to do the job for most people, right?

Dr. Sanders: Exactly. We have seen amazing results in our patients using the umbilical cord stem cells. We know that the MSC’s are one of the highest driving forces in their regenerated tissue. Very exciting!

Narrator: Indeed. Well alright then Dr. Sanders. Thanks for explaining what MSC, Mesenchymal stem cells are.
