Stem cell therapy is a type of treatment for pain that utilizes cells extracted from your own body or from a close family member. Standard stem cell therapy uses either adipose (fat) cells or cells taken from your bone marrow, which are then injected into the damaged tissue. At our healthcare clinic, we use regenerative medicine for pain relief which is not considered stem cell therapy. Our doctors prefer to use treatments containing Wharton’s Jelly-derived tissue over using your own stem cells due to its effectiveness and potent healing qualities. It’s important to familiarize yourself with what stem cell therapy is before deciding on a treatment, so schedule a free consultation today to learn more.

Know Your Options for Stem Cell Treatment

The key to choosing the pain relief treatment that’s best for you is knowing all of your options, so you can make the most educated choice possible. Our doctor does not offer stem cell therapy for pain relief due to some concerns and issues that can sometimes occur with both adipose tissue and bone marrow treatments:

Adipose tissue stem cell therapy may contribute to the spread of toxins because it is common for toxins to be stored in fat tissue. During the collection process, toxins are not removed or addressed, so it’s not possible to ensure it is a toxin-free treatment. Also, since the cells are taken from your own body, they are the same age as you and have lost much of their potency when it comes to healing.

Bone marrow stem cell therapy has the same problem with older cells being used, plus it has the added issue of being quite invasive. During the extraction process, the doctor must drill into the bone, which is not only painful, but also opens up the body to the possibility of infection. There is also the potential for the stem cells to rush to the site of the new wound that’s been created instead of where they were intended to go.

How Does Regenerative Medicine Work as a Non-Invasive Pain Relief Method?

Our doctors prefer to use Wharton’s jelly-derived regenerative tissue for pain relief for a variety of reasons:

  • The tissue is young and brand new
  • It acts quickly to help boost your body’s natural healing mechanisms
  • The tissue has not aged along with you
  • It is minimally invasive with little to no pain involved
  • It requires little to no downtime and you are typically in and out the same day
  • There is virtually zero chance that your body will reject the treatment

The regenerative tissue we use for treatment is ethically sourced from donated umbilical cords by consenting mothers who are screened ahead of time to help ensure the quality of the tissue. When the potent regenerative components found within the umbilical tissue are injected into your damaged or degraded place of need, it floods the area with potent healing properties that include:

  • Cytokines
  • Growth factors
  • Proteins
  • Lipids
  • Collagen
  • Peptides
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Exosomes
  • Amino acids
  • And more
