AMNIOTIC CELL THERAPY
Advanced Therapy with Advanced Results
Our healthcare staff is specially trained to diagnose and treat the source of your pain with Regenerative Cell Therapy. With regenerative medicine, you can benefit from your treatment without the risks and recovery time associated with more invasive procedures, such as surgery.
What is Amniotic Cell Therapy?
Amniotic Cell Therapy is a non-surgical, non-steroidal regenerative treatment that is safe and effective. Scientists have discovered that amniotic fluid/membrane from the placenta contains an abundance of regenerative cells that mobilize stem cells, growth factors, and cytokines to not only help repair damaged tissue but also help regenerate it as well. (Please do NOT confuse this treatment with embryonic cells. This is NOT embryonic tissue; therefore, there is no legal or moral issue with this treatment.)
Amniotic Cell therapy offers a regenerative option to those suffering with arthritis and soft tissue conditions. Unlike stem cell procedures that are age or health dependent this one is not, and it does not require a painful harvesting procedure from one’s bone marrow. In addition, this treatment is no longer exclusive to just the professional athlete anymore. Grandparents, executives, retirees, and weekend warriors can all benefit from this treatment.
Since amniotic derived regenerative cell therapy is not derived from embryonic stem cells or fetal tissue, there are no ethical issues with the treatment.
The regenerative cell therapy consists of an injection directly into the painful area. The therapy has the potential to actually alter the course of the condition and not simply mask the pain. This therapy has significant potential for those in pain, and could actually repair structural problems while treating pain and inflammation simultaneously.
How does Regenerative Cell Therapy work?
Regenerative Cell Therapy is where we tell a group of cells where to go and what to do. These types of cells are already present in your body, and are young “pre-programmed” cells. When these cells are placed into an area of your body that needs help healing, the cells start to mature into cells that can help repair the injury and damage of that area. Regenerative Cell Therapy makes use of these cells to reduce inflammation for quick pain relief, and then works to start repairing the desired area.
When the amniotic cell material is obtained, it comes from consenting donors who have undergone elective c-sections. The fluid is processed at an FDA regulated lab, and is checked for a full slate of diseases per FDA guidelines. The amniotic material has been used over 60,000 times in the US with no adverse events reported. It acts as an immunologically privileged material, meaning it has NOT been shown to cause any rejection reaction in the body. This means there is no graft versus host problem.
What types of Medical Conditions are treated with Regenerative Cell Therapy?
Conditions that involve back, joint, and nerve pain are often excellent candidates for regenerative therapy.
Here is a partial list of the conditions Regenerative Cell Therapy helps considerably:
- Golfer’s elbow
- Shoulder tendinitis and Rotator Cuff Injury
- Joint arthritis – hip, spine, knee, ankle, SI joint, elbow, wrist
- Hip Osteoarthritis
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Muscle tear
Because of their immense effects in treating conditions related to back, joint, or ligament damage and pain, Regenerative Cell Therapy is frequently used in treating athletes and quite a few have already used this therapy to speed up the healing processes in their bodies, so they could get back to playing at a very high level.
What are the benefits of Regenerative Cell Therapy?
Fast Acting Relief – Most patients experience relief from their pain after one treatment of Regenerative Cell Therapy, and feel continuing relief as the body works to heal itself.
Long Lasting Healing – Regenerative Cell Therapy brings powerful healing cells to the damaged or injured area. Then the cells start to multiply, bringing you healing that continues long after the treatment.
Safe and Gentle Therapy – The chances for reaction towards this treatment are very low for most individuals. Patients also experience less downtime then surgery and other invasive treatments, and don’t need to come into the office for as many visits.
What to expect from Regenerative Cell Therapy?
As natural anti-inflammatories, regenerative cells act similarly to cortisone and steroid injections, but without the associated risks and side effects.
Additionally, Regenerative Cell Therapy contains hyaluronic acid which act as a lubricant for worn and damaged joints while encouraging new, healthy cartilage tissue growth.
Most importantly, the treatment has been proven exceptionally safe.
The end result is reduced or eliminated pain, healthier joint tissue, increased mobility, and the ability to once again engage in all of your favorites activities; vibrant, healthy, and pain-free!
