Stem Cell Injections
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem Cells are the natural cells found in your body that are responsible for healing damaged tissue. Stem cells have the ability to change into every type of tissue in your body, depending on what needs to be healed.
Our joints, cartilage, ligaments, muscles and bones are constantly breaking down and our body is constantly rebuilding them with the help of stem cells. Unfortunately, at the age of 40 and beyond, the number stem cells in our body significantly decreases with each year AND the potency of our stem cells significantly decreases each year. That is why we can cut our finger when we are 21 and it has completely heated the next day but when we cut it when we are 65, it can take a couple of weeks to heal.
The stem cells we use to treat patients are called "Amniotic Stem Cells." Amniotic stem cells are "neutral cells" that do not contain any DNA. Because they are neutral, a patient cannot have a rejection or reaction to them. These cells are safe to use. As a matter of fact, there has not been one adverse side effect ever documented in over 100 years.
Amniotic Stem Cells are very unique and we are really the best choice to use for Stem Cell Therapy for a few reasons: They are brand new cells which are extremely potent because of how new they are which means they may be able to heal tissue very quickly, which means if they are injected into the knee, for instance, any parts of the knee which are damaged can potentially be healed. For example, when you have meniscus damage you might also have ligaments that are getting frayed," tendons that are weakening and even possibly micro fractures in your tibia.
Amniotic Stem Cells also have natural anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties that are more effective than even steroids. The majority of our patients leave our clinic with very little or no pain whatsoever and by the time the analgesic effect has worn off, their knee has already healed enough that they have no pain anymore.
Best of all, Amniotic Stem Cells are safe. The only risk of infection is at the injection site. Of course we use new sterile needles and prep and sterilize the site of injection so this risk is extremely minimal as well.
We offer the exciting power of Stem Cell Therapy using Bone Marrow Aspiration to heal your body so that you can return to the life and activities you love. Bone Marrow Aspiration concentrate utilizes stem cells from your body’s own bone marrow. Bone marrow contains cells that have the ability to improve circulation, decrease inflammation and regenerate healthy tendon, ligament, disc and cartilage.
With BMAC, the high number of concentrated stem cells provides a strong healing response to the damaged area and helps to accelerate your body’s natural healing. Numerous conditions can be treated with BMAC, such as pain in the knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, wrist/hand, ankle/foot.
Over the span of a few months, your body can repair and regrow cartilage, ligaments, and tissues- reducing inflammation and eliminating nerve pain. This simple procedure can have an incredible impact on function and restore you to a pain free life!
Help heal injured or degenerated joints with your own stem cells
Your body is made up of billions of specialized cells. Cells that are responsible for forming specific organs like your brain, skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and bone. Every single day these cells undergo both DEgenerative as well as REgenerative processes.
To break it down — As older cells die, new cells are born from stem cells… while also creating other types of cells in the process. However, there’s only one catch.
When tissues are injured or damaged, the degenerative process exceeds this regenerative process thus resulting in structures that become weaker, painful and less functional. Although there are many types, stem cells found in bone marrow are most effective at promoting musculoskeletal healing (tendon, ligament, cartilage and bone).
Use your body’s reserves to help heal the injured area
These days, physicians use modern techniques to help heal your injured area with high precision:
✔️ Withdraw stem cells from bone marrow,
✔️ Concentrate the cells through a lab process and
✔️ Re-inject them precisely into the injured tissues in other areas of the body
Through a series of advanced, in-clinic devices and techniques, physicians are able to ensure the cells are being introduced into the exact area of need. When the stem cells are re-injected, they enhance the natural repair process of degenerated and injured tendons, ligaments, and arthritic joints.
...Inevitably reversing the natural breakdown process that occurs from aging, overuse and injury.
How Are Stem Cells Obtained?
The human body keeps a reserve of stem cells to help repair injured and degenerated tissues at all times, making it fairly simple to retrieve them for therapeutic purposes.
As stated above, the most effective type of stem cells can be found in the marrow cavity of your bones, and thus this is the most likely place to harvest these type of healing cells.
In the procedure itself, patients typically lay face down as the doctor thoroughly cleans the area before numbing the skin and bone. A special needle is inserted into the bone to withdraw marrow blood, which contains the stem cells.
The process is normally customized for each patient to best accommodate for their condition or current need. At this time, the concentrated stem cells are administered to the targeted area of interest or injury.
There is a follow up injection 3-5 days after the initial procedure to keep the stem cells activated and promote additional healing.
The 5 worst foods to eat if you have arthritis or injured or degenerated joints
Proper nutrition can be highly effective to generate new stem cells to build and replenish damaged tissue and arthritic joints. However, what about foods that hinder or block stem cell production? And more importantly, what foods make your arthritis even worse?
The food you eat plays a major role in how you feel – and that includes your physical aches and pain. And now arthritis experts have pinpointed five “joint-killing” foods. The nutrients in these foods are proven to stoke the fires of chronic inflammation... amp up the pain… and cause your arthritis to put you on the sidelines of life. In other words:
Every time you put one of these foods in your mouth... it’s like you’re smashing your joints with a hammer… over and over again.
So if you’re even remotely interested in relieving… and even reversing your arthritis... you’ll want to ERASE these five foods from your grocery list TODAY:
5. White Bread, Bagels, Muffins, Pasta (Gluten)
4. French Fries, Processed Fast Foods
3. Blackened & Barbecued Foods
2. Nightshade Vegetables (Potatoes, Tomatoes, Eggplant, Peppers, Tobacco)
