All About Stem Cell Treatment

What is Stem Cell Treatment?

Stem Cell Treatment can offer a viable alternative to surgery for individuals suffering from joint pain, muscle, tendon and back pain.

Stem Cell Treatment is part of a broader, emerging and exciting area of Medicine called “Regenerative Medicine”. Stem Cells can be harvested from bone marrow and can become virtually any other cell in the human body. Stem Cell Therapy uses your own potent Stem Cells from your bone marrow and growth factors from your blood (platelet rich plasma) to repair or rebuild injured or degenerated body tissue such as joints, muscles, tendons or ligaments.

The bone marrow is rich in stem cells, growth factors and cell signaling substances. Stem cells are drawn in a painless way from the pelvic bone and then injected, along with your concentrated platelet blood product, rich in growth factors (Platelet Rich Plasma) into the painful body joint, tendon or muscle, usually using ultrasound guidance for better accuracy.

Your Platelet Rich Plasma comes from a simple blood draw, which we spin to separate and extract the platelet rich component. Sometimes we inject fat with this mixture as it can help activate injected stem cells and create a healthy environment for them to multiply as well as for providing a cushion.

So, Why Does Our Body Not Heal Itself?

Degeneration often occurs in areas of the body where there is a low blood supply and low oxygen levels. These areas are difficult for stem cells to reach and difficult for cell signaling to take place, resulting in inadequate healing and regeneration.

Regenerative medicine provides the right cells, growth factors and cellular environment to promote healing and regrowth in a body area where blood flow and stem cells could otherwise not reach, especially joints, ligaments, tendons and even discs.

Benefits of Stem Cell Treatment

Re-introducing your own stem cells directly into damaged joints under ultrasound or X-ray guidance can harness the benefits of stem cells.

Adult stem cells from your own body have the ability to reduce inflammation and repair or replace damaged bone, cartilage, ligaments, tendons and nerves. They can also help stimulate new blood flow in the joints and reduce pain and inflammation to provide an opportunity for lasting healing and relief in a process called Immunomodulation.

Why Have Stem Cell Treatment?

Stem Cell Therapy


We use your own cells to help regenerate tissue at the site of cellular damage. Our process addresses your pain in a natural way, without relying on narcotic pain medications or invasive surgery and without artificial implants or replacements.

stem cell therapy


Many patients find stem cell therapies a great alternative to surgery.

Stem Cell Therapy


Stem cell therapy has a minimal recovery time unlike surgery where recovery can be a long drawn out process.

Stem Cell Therapy


Don’t like the way general anesthesia makes you feel? Stem cell therapy does not require general anesthesia.

Stem Cell Therapy


Avoid the risk of cell rejection by using cells and biologics from your own body (ie, we don’t use stem cells from cord tissue or placental tissue.)

Is Stem Cell Treatment Right For You?

Although Stem Cell Treatment is considered by some people to be experimental, various research studies show that regenerative stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma injections can provide excellent relief from joint and musculoskeletal pain and ongoing inflammation.
