Frequently Asked Questions

I want you asking questions about your health!

We encourage questions, this is your body and your health. Your willingness to question what you see here, what your body is doing, and what we can do to make it better shows us that you’re for a change. We want everyone that comes to this clinic to feel taken care of and trust in the process.

Here are the questions we get most often:

Stem cells are unique cells that have the capability to develop into a myriad of other types of
cells. This unique capability to transform allows them to be utilized as specialty cells such as
muscle cells, blood cells, or even brain cells giving them the ability to act as a repair system in
place of cells that had previously deteriorated. The reason that they are able to act in this way is
due to their ability to replicate themselves over time and the fact that they are originally
un-designated. Think of them as reserves on a sports team that you call in when the main team
is struggling.

Like anything in life there is no magic pill we can’t guarantee that an injection or a surgery, or a
set of painkillers is the 100% correct answer. We call it therapy because we will be working
together to find the best possible outcome for you and your body. Based on the evidence and
results that I’ve seen I know that you’re in good hands. As long as you’re willing to trust in me, I
won’t be giving up on you.

Stem cells have the ability to transform into specialized cells. This means we can take them and
place them where they are most needed and they adapt to the needs of the tissues and joints
around them. They work alongside your body to reverse the effects of time, stress, and injuries.

The use of stem cell therapy has the potential to completely change the way your body currently feels and operates. The pain that you’ve learned to acclimate to or make adjustments for could be repaired and give you the ability to rebuild from the ground up. As we mentioned earlier stem cells are undesignated cells so once they are at a site where you are experiencing pain/discomfort the stem cells work to repair that damage. During your consultation we will evaluate your overall health and choose a path that best fits your needs. Whether that is stem cell therapy or PRP we break down what will work best for your body and lifestyle.

Your body already performs this process. However, the effects from this process from your own
stem cells become less effective over time. We are injecting new stem cells into your body to ramp up your own repair network. Many people have reported life altering results from these
types of treatments.

Like any procedure we have to account for your specific body. Some patients have reported
changes occurring the very next day while others have taken a few months. We will have a
check-in process to ensure that you are seeing the results we discussed in the original
consultation. The average expectancy of results is 3 to 12 months for full results.

Stem cells are naturally occurring in the body, but as we age so do our stem cells. So, the
naturally occurring regenerative properties we experience when we are younger deteriorates
alongside our bodies. We are injecting newer stem cells to aid the process that already exists.
The risks associated for stem cell treatment for joint pain are negligible. These risks are
mitigated with proper sterile injection technique and the highest quality lab standards and
procedures available to date. The only lab utilized is FDA certified.

The reason that you’re here is that you’re in pain and you want to make a change. Stem cell
therapy might not be the best fit for everyone, but here is a small list of the most commonly
affected areas and conditions where we have seen positive results​:
● Osteoarthritis
● Rheumatoid arthritis
● Psoriatic arthritis
● Neck pain
● Back pain
● Tendonitis
● Ligament injuries
● Plantar fasciitis
● Wrist degeneration
● Knee degeneration – runners knee
● Elbow degeneration – golfers elbow, tennis elbow
● Shoulder degeneration – rotator cuff sprain or tear​

The term for the stem cells we use is actually Wharton’s Jelly Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC).
Wharton’s Jelly is a gelatinous substance found in the umbilical cord. After safely harvesting the
Wharton’s Jelly a lab then collects the Mesenchymal Stem Cells and stores them. We get these
harvested stem cells from an FDA approved lab and they cause no harm to the mother or baby
when collected. We have options to use other kinds of stem cells including the ones within your
own body, however this will be discussed on a case by case basis.

As with any treatment or therapy there is always a chance that something unknown could occur. However, the overwhelming majority of people who have used this process have had no adverse reactions outside of slight swelling and discomfort after the injection. Because the injection is invasive with proper sterile technique and stem cells are naturally occurring in the body a lot of the risk factors are mitigated in comparison to options such as surgery.

We know that choosing a path forward is difficult, but not as difficult as living every day in pain. Click here and let’s get you scheduled for a consultation!
