Stem Cell Therapy
Regenerative cell therapy could be your solution to chronic pain. We offer all-natural pain relief, without drugs or surgical procedures. Our team uses non-surgical, mesenchymal stem cell injections to help patients recover from a wide variety of injuries and disorders.
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Some doctors use “stem cell therapy,” involving stem cells harvested from your bone marrow or adipose tissue. There a quite a few challenges surrounding the use of these types of cells.
There are significant ethical concerns with the use of human embryonic stem cells, as well as concerns that they may cause tumors. Stem cells from your bone marrow are harvested by drilling a hole into your hip or femur and extracting the marrow, which can be an excruciating procedure. Harvesting stem cells from your adipose tissue is less invasive, but your body stores toxins in your fat cells, making this a riskier source of stem cells. On top of these issues, as we age, our stem cells also age and lose their healing ability. So, treatments using your own stem cells, as stem cell therapy does, are less effective.
The Back to Health Difference
Our clinic uses young, viable mesenchymal stem cells acquired from Wharton’s jelly found in umbilical allografts. We may also use amnion from amniotic fluid in our regenerative cell therapy.
What makes mesenchymal stem cells superior? One distinct advantage is that umbilical cord tissue is abundant in young, active, therapeutic stem cells that promote regeneration and proper cell function. Amnion is also plentiful in growth factors that are essential to the repair of many tissues, including ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. These substances are safely and ethically donated to tissue banks by healthy mothers at the time of cesarean birth.
Stem Cell Treatment
Birth tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells release anti-inflammatory factors that lessen your pain and help you heal. These cells are injected into your point of injury or damage to get you back to optimal health and well-being. With a minimal risk of rejection and side effects, our regenerative cell treatments are safe alternatives to complex surgery and long periods of recovery.
