Chances are, if you have looked into receiving stem cell treatment for any condition, or even just looked into the most recent mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) research, you have seen this therapy being used to treat or target diseases and conditions with a distinct inflammatory component. The source of most disease, as well as joint pain and arthritis, is inflammation. The cause can be due to trauma, overuse, degeneration or an autoimmune condition.
There are hundreds of papers looking at specific molecular changes and biochemical signaling effects that allow mesenchymal cells to prevent over-active immune responses, prevent inflammation and promote healing.
Stem Cells, as well as placental therapeutic tissues have a powerful anti-inflammatory action either applied by injection locally to a joint or tissue, or used in an IV infusion.
Arthritis is characterized by inflammation of one or more joints, causing pain and stiffness. Usually this condition worsens with age.
Stem Cell Therapy has anti-inflammatory properties and can thus alleviate inflammation-related disorders.
Stem Cells are injected in the affected areas and the regenerative process begins and accelerates. Stem Cells have been documented to duplicate themselves every 28 hours.
Stem Cell Therapies have shown to be highly successful in the treatment of conditions that involve the musculoskeletal system.
Stem Cell Therapy can treat conditions involving bone fractures, cartilage and joint function, joint injuries and degeneration.

There are two main types of stem cells; adult stem cells and embryonic stem cells.
Adult Stem Cells or Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) are tissue specific. They typically can only generate different cell types for the specific tissue or organ in which they live. These cells are found in many organs and tissues, including brain, bone marrow, blood vessels, skeletal muscle, skin, teeth, heart, gut, liver and the reproductive organs.
Embryonic Stem Cells are derived from blastocysts created by in vitro fertilization (IVF) for assisted reproduction that were no longer needed. Because these kind of stem cells are undifferentiated and unspecialized, they can give rise to every type of cell in the body. It is not legal in this country to use this type of cell on humans as there is a great health risk associated with the use of this type of cell including Cancer.
Yes, Stem cell Therapy is less expensive than surgery.
Stem Cell Therapy is an outpatient procedure with minimal complications. A less aggressive alternative to surgery with no scarring OR NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS.
Yes, PRP and Stem Cell grafts are taken from your own body or placental allograft.
Recovery time is shorter compared to surgery. Usually pain diminishes in about seven to ten days. Motion increases recovery and is encouraged.
The procedure is completed in the office, usually between 1-2 hours.
Certain conditions that do not respond to traditional medical treatment can often respond to “Regenerative Therapies”
