Stem Cell Therapy
What is Stem Cell Therapy? Stem cell therapy refers to treatments that utilize your body’s own stem cells or cells collected from a close family member. The cells are taken from your bone marrow or adipose tissue. At our healthcare clinic, we do not use stem cell therapy as a treatment, but instead, use Wharton’s Jelly-derived mesenchymal cells. This natural, non-surgical treatment helps the body repair and rejuvenate your damaged tissue, which results in less pain, greater mobility and a more enjoyable life.

Types of Stem Cell Therapies
Adipose tissue stem cell therapy and bone marrow stem cell therapy are the two primary types that are available on the market. When the cells are taken from your own fat cells, there is the potential for toxins to be in the sample because toxins can be stored in adipose tissue.
When cells are taken from your bone marrow, the process to retrieve them is highly invasive and painful, and you are at increased risk of getting an infection. These two types of stem cell therapy also use cells from your own body, which have lost quite a lot of their healing power because of their age.
While not technically stem cell therapy, our regenerative medicine treatments are effective at treating the underlying cause of your pain to provide long-lasting relief from a range of different issues.
Treatment Containing Growth Factors And Regenerative Cells
The treatments we use consist of cells that are collected from donated umbilical cords after a healthy C-section birth. During the pregnancy, the mother is screened to ensure she is in good health and for social history to create the best chance of getting high-quality cells for treatment. When the tissues are harvested, no harm comes to the mother or the baby and everything just proceeds as normal.
The reason these cells are preferred for treatment is because of their youth. Older cells lose a lot of their healing power, but these mesenchymal cells from umbilical cords still have a full complement of growth factors, cytokines, extracellular matrix, exosomes, proteins and other elements that translate into a fast and efficient healing process.
Treatments Containing Regenerative Cells For Pain
When the cells are injected into the affected area, they will get to work repairing and replacing damaged cells and tissue. They also encourage your body’s own natural healing process so the underlying cause of your pain is addressed and treated and your pain will subside.
With conventional medicine, it’s standard practice to treat all forms of pain with medication, but this is only masking the outward symptom and ignoring the cause. It’s only when you fix the reason for the pain that the pain will be alleviated, and that’s why regenerative cells provide you with positive results.
If you have been thinking of turning to stem cells to try and relieve your painful condition, it’s important to make an informed decision. We believe our regenerative cellular treatments are far less invasive and more effective than traditional stem cell therapy, but the ultimate choice is up to you.
