Our Stem Cell Joint regeneration therapy utilizes a proven and effective technique using your own platelets coupled with the amazing regenerative powers of Amniotic Stems. This cutting edge treatment provides substantial relief of pain and improved functionality for chronic and acute musculoskeletal joint pain and injuries.
Prolotherapy is used in the joint pain treatment of chronic musculoskeletal pain in various parts of the body, including the knees, shoulders, low back, hips, neck, and elbows. The pain is usually the result from specific injuries, chronic sprains/strains, overuse injuries, and osteoarthritis.
Prolotherapy involves the practice of injecting a solution into the damaged connective tissue or arthritic area for the purpose of promoting healing, which significantly reduces or eliminates the associated pain.
It has been known for many years, since the 1930’s, that injecting a simple dextrose containing solution is enough to stimulate an inflammatory response, which in turn initiates a beneficial healing cascade to the injured area.
The advantages of using a solution containing Placental Stem Cells over other traditional therapies are the astounding physiologic benefits that stem cells supplement to the healing cascade. Placental Stem Cells are immature undifferentiated cells that have the ability to become whatever cells the body requires them to be.
When they are injected into an area that requires wound healing and growth they are activated to proliferate and differentiate into the needed types of tissue.
Stem cells have the potential to become cartilage, tendon, ligament, bone and muscle, as well as the ability to promote other healing factors, which are very vital to the repair.
They do not carry any significant risks for infection, rejection, or adverse reactions. These many added benefits make amniotic stem cells far superior to other elementary solutions, which have traditionally been utilized for prolotherapy.
This cutting edge solution to the longstanding debilitating dilemma of dealing with chronic joint pain and acute sports injuries is coming to
light in the media recently with many high profile athletes undergoing this therapy.
Peyton Manning flew to Germany a couple of years ago to have the procedure done on his neck and has made a triumphant return to the NFL.
Tiger Woods underwent treatment in his left knee following surgery several years ago and responded excellently.
When Kobe Bryant injured his Achilles tendon recently, he immediately underwent the procedure to help him get back to the court more quickly and with a more successful repair.
Several major league baseball players have been treated successfully, including L.A. Dodger’s pitcher, Takashi Saito, and New York Yankees’ pitcher, Bartolo Colon, to name a few.
At last, what was once only available to the influential and elite is now available to anyone who wants a better quality of life through improved functionality and decreased pain.
The procedure lasts about 30—40 minutes, using local anesthetic with very little discomfort, and after it is completed you will be able to walk out of the office and drive yourself home.
This is in contrast to prolonged hospital stays with extensive down time and expense associated with various surgical procedures, including total knee replacements. The average cost of a total knee replacement in the U.S. is $40,000, and often associated with mediocre results, especially with regard to functionality.
Stem Cell Prolotherapy offers a much better solution with potentially better results, especially mobility, at a fraction of the cost. There are other treatment modalities sometimes used to lubricate the knee joint, such as Hyaluronate, known by the brand names, “Synvisc” or “Euflexxa”.
The problem with these is that they are only a temporary solution, which at best will only last for about six months before the procedure will need to be repeated. This is in stark contrast to the permanent healing and regeneration, which is achieved with the Stem Cell Prolotherapy.
However, Hyaluronate can be used in conjunction with the Stem Cell Prolotherapy so that you can enjoy the benefits of both therapies, if you choose.
