About Stem Cells
During the last decade, the medical field has had a great interest in Stem Cell Research due to its renewal properties and the ability of these cells to aid in the healing of diseases or chronic conditions. Stem Cells are a form of Regenerative Medicine that helps a patient’s body heal by repairing, replacing and reconstructing damaged tissues.
Specialized cells, such as bone cells, liver cells, and heart cells, start as Stem Cells. Stem Cells have the incredible potential to develop into many different types of cells in the body and serve as what can be described as an "Internal Stem Cell Based Repair System."
Stem Cells Types:
Autologous Cells from your body taken from body fat, (adipose tissue), or bone marrow. The number of Stem Cells from your body fat or bone can be age relevant, meaning the younger you are the more Stem Cells there are, the older you are the fewer Stem Cells there are. In some cases these cells have to be manipulated in such a way that the FDA rules them, (considers them), to be a drug, or in some cases has ruled it to be illegal in the United States.
The Allogenic- cells from outside your body can be Amniotic/Placental or Umbilical. The best source for Stem Cells is from Wharton's Jelly from the Umbilical Cord. Wharton's Jelly contains the highest number of Mesenchymal Stem Cell along with cytokines, growth factors, and proteins. Wharton's Jelly is a gelatinous substance in the umbilical cord that provides protection to the arteries and vein within the cord.

How Stem Cells Works
When cell tissue is introduced into the body, the cells have a “Homing” characteristic that sends them directly to the areas of inflammation and damage. They release a chemical that stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal. Research shows that human cell tissue can decrease inflammation and modulate the immune system. Essentially, stem cells are master cells which are capable of regeneration and differentiation into a wide range of specialized cell types. Once injected, stem cells follow inflammatory signals from damaged tissues and have multiple ways of repairing these damaged areas. The MSCs we use are considered to be multipotent but not pluripotent; which means they can transform into different cell types but cannot form an organ. In the body, these cells Do NOT function by transforming into different cell types or tissues. They act via anti-inflammatory activity, immune repairing capacity, and the ability to stimulate regeneration.
Types Of Pain Treated
Research Shows Stem Cells Can Also Help:
- Speed up the length of time it takes for injuries or wounds to heal
- Reduce pain, even chronic joint pain, with less need for medications
- Increase functionality, the range of motion, flexibility and sleep quality
- Reduce muscle compensations and risk for future injuries
- Decrease nerve damage
- Increase collagen
- Help heal skin wounds, prevent the formation of scar tissue
- Return patients to their normal activities as quickly as possible
Are Stem Cells Safe?
Treatment with Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC’s) is completely safe. No adverse clinical reactions to this tissue product have been reported. Treatments with stem cells (biological allograft) are viewed by many leaders in the field of regenerative medicine as the best hope humanity has of reversing many conditions that have long been considered terminal.
