Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy is a regenerative medicine treatment designed to relieve pain by using cells derived from your own body or the stem cells of a close family member. The two different types of stem cell therapy options include bone marrow and adipose tissue.
At our clinic, we do not offer this type of therapy as a treatment. Instead, we prefer Wharton's jelly-derived regenerative tissue with loads of growth factors and healing components, and platelet-rich plasma therapy.
It’s always important to take the time to do proper research whenever you look for alternative treatments for pain, and this is no different.

Treating Painful Conditions with Stem Cell Therapy: What You Need to Know
If you are considering treating your condition with stem cell therapy, there are some things to be aware of:
Adipose Tissue – This type of stem cell therapy collects the cells from your fat tissue, which can be an issue because toxins are often stored in fat cells. This increases the likelihood of toxins being released into your bloodstream upon injection. These cells are also the same age as you, which means their healing power has likely diminished.
Bone Marrow – This type of stem cell therapy takes the cells from your bone marrow. Naturally, this is a highly invasive procedure as the doctor must drill into bone to extract the stem cells. This opens you up to the risk of infection, and when the cells are injected for pain relief, they may rush to the site of your new wound instead of where you need them. And like adipose cells, these cells are also the same age as you with diminished healing potential.
Regenerative Medicine as a Safe Alternative to Invasive Procedures
Our doctors prefer to use regenerative tissue derived from the Wharton’s Jelly of donated umbilical cords to treat painful conditions. This is not considered stem cell therapy. It is an effective way to get to the root cause of your pain and resolve that issue for long-term pain relief.
The tissue we harvest for treatment is safely and ethically collected after a scheduled C-section birth. Neither the mother nor baby experience any discomfort during the collection process. When it is injected into your damaged or degraded tissue, it helps to trigger your body’s own natural healing mechanisms for long-lasting relief.
This youthful tissue is at the height of its healing power with potent healing properties that include:
- Amino acids
- Growth factors
- Hyaluronic acid
- And more
