Regenerative Therapy Q & A


Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® 

Our most successful program is called Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy®. This is a type of regenerative medicine program that modulates and targets the body’s healing response. Using a series of acellular Amniotic tissue allografts, many patients are using Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® to help rejuvenate deteriorating joints and damaged soft tissue. 

 

What are acellular Amniotic tissue allografts? 

An Allograft is a type of transplant delivered by an injection directly into or around the site of injury or damage. An acellular amniotic tissue allograft is composed of donated amniotic fluid and/or placental tissue. Amniotic Fluid is acellular but contains a rich mixture of proteins, powerful growth factors to support the healing of damaged tissue and provide building blocks for regeneration and reconstruction. The cytokines, elastins, collagens and growth factors in amniotic fluid also have the potential to reduce scarring and inflammation.  

 

There has been much research done over the last 100 years showcasing the healing properties of amniotic fluid. Recent studies show amniotic fluid possesses anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and regenerative properties as well. The amniotic allografts used in our Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® are also considered “immune privileged”, reducing the risk of any adverse immune reactions. 

 

Benefits of Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® 

Convenient & Painless – no down time, just a short series of injections over a period of several months. Joint injections are performed using ultrasound guidance by our top professional expert orthopedic specialty trained provider 

All Natural & Drug-Free – contains no medication, only minimally manipulated acellular amniotic allograft taken from donated amniotic fluid/placental tissues. 

Safe Alternative to Surgery – helps recruit your body’s stem cells to regenerate damaged, degenerative joints and injured tissue that’s causing pain.  

Cost Effective – for qualified patients, Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® is covered by insurance. For patients without coverage, we offer several convenient payment plan options, however costs are usually less than co-pays/complication expenses with surgery. 

 

Who is a good candidate for Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy®? 

Many different patients can benefit from regenerative therapy. This treatment option may be appropriate for you if you have unexplained chronic pain, chronic conditions that cause tissue damage, or injuries in almost any part of your body. 

 

Patients have reported pain relief from the following:    

  • Spinal injuries: neck pain, mid or lower back pain, sacroiliac joints 
  • Joint Injuries & deterioration: knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, wrists, ankles, fingers and toes 
  • Soft tissue injuries: plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, rotator cuff syndrome 

 

Can amniotic allografts be used with other treatment options? 

Amniotic allografts can be used safely with the other treatments available from Solutions Integrated Medicine. For example, in many cases, chiropractic care may be recommended to re-align joints and help correct pinched nerves that may hinder the healing process. In most of our regenerative medicine cases, we also recommend rehab to help re-balance and strengthen soft tissues, tendons and ligaments as new tissue is developing. 

 

Before you begin treatment, the providers will examine you carefully to determine which treatments will be best for you. After meeting as a team, they will recommend a schedule of treatments that will help you feel better and allow your body to heal as quickly as possible. 

 

Although Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® is appropriate for many patients, it may not be the best choice for everyone. To find out if this treatment is right for you, make an appointment today so you can talk to our providers about your options.
