What Is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative Medicine is a safe and effective therapy for those looking for an alternative to drugs or invasive joint replacement surgery. Stem cell therapy reduces pain, reduces inflammation and naturally heals the body. It stimulates cellular growth and regenerates healthy tissue, joints and even bone.
With a third of the US suffering from chronic pain and over a million each year undergoing joint replacements, regenerative medicine could eliminate your pain and increase your mobility. Some patients experience significant reduction in pain and inflammation within weeks of just a single injection.
Previous treatments may have included non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs), opioid (narcotic) pain medication, steroid injections, and even joint replacement.
Now you have another option. Regenerative medicine is able to repair connective tissue and stimulate the formation of cartilage, tendon, ligaments and bone.
What Do Stem Cells Do?
Stem cells do three things:
- Reduce inflammation
- Regenerate the injured tissues
- Modulate the immune system
This is good news for people suffering with arthritis as well as neurological problems such as peripheral neuropathy, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome and bulging or herniated disc.
This out-patient therapy is minimally invasive and requires no down time. It is a safe and effective therapy having no adverse reactions. Imagine a procedure that takes 20 minutes and you can avoid risky, invasive surgery!
What Kinds of Conditions Can Be Treated With Regenerative Medicine?
- Arthritis (in any joint in the body)
- Cartilage Tears
- Hip Pain
- Knee Pain (including meniscus tears)
- Foot and Ankle Problems (including plantar fasciitis)
- Shoulder Problems (including rotator cuff tears)
- Elbow Pain (golfers and tennis elbow)
- Wrist and hand pain
- Spinal Pain (back or neck)
- Peripheral Neuropathy
- Bulging Disc
- Herniated Disc
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Not All Stem Cells Are The Same
Stem cells can be obtained from a variety of sources. Not all stem cells are equal in their ability to repair and heal soft tissue, connective tissue or neurological tissue. Adults stem cells (derived from bone marrow or fat tissue of the patient) are known as “autologous”. The donor is the same person as the recipient.
The number of stem cells in our body significantly declines with age. That’s why a child can get injured and bounce back from their injury quickly. It also explains why when we reach middle age, things start to hurt!
When an orthopedic surgeon extracts stem cells from the bone marrow of a senior citizen and then injects it back into the same person, they don’t get the stem cell count that they would have had it come from a newborn. That’s the primary disadvantage of bone marrow stem cells. Science has shown us conclusively that superior clinical results are obtained with using stem cells from an umbilical cord.
The Younger The Cell, The More Powerful The Cell
We only use stem cells that come from an umbilical cord (from full term healthy births). The mother, the umbilical cord and the stem cells are all screened and found to be free of all infectious disease and are sterile.
Our stem cell products are processed in an FDA registered lab. The cells have been independently tested by an independent 3rd party lab
What To Do Next
If you have been suffering with an orthopedic or a neurological problem (like peripheral neuropathy), the first step to feeling better is to attend one of our free informational seminars. These informative, one hour seminars will educate you about the science of regenerative medicine so you can make an informed choice as to whether this approach is right for you.
