Stem Cell Therapy Explained

If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis or another chronic foot injury or soft tissue pain – your treatment options are no longer limited to traditional treatments such as steroid injections, joint replacement or physical therapy. One such state-of-the-art, cutting-edge treatment option available to patients with degenerative arthritis, tendon and ligament damage is amniotic stem cell injections.

How it Works

Amniotic stem cell therapy takes advantage of the body’s ability to repair itself and relies on naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agents as a natural alternative to surgery. Stem cell therapy can accelerate and promote healing in damaged tissue, even if you have been unresponsive to more traditional remedies in the past. Stem cell therapy offers pain-relieving benefits that far exceed typical treatments. Patients generally need only one injection and do quite well more than one year after treatment with decreased pain and increased mobility.

While cortisone and other drugs only provide brief pain relief, stem cells actually rebuild degenerated tissue while providing pain relief. The growth factors in amniotic stem cells may replace damaged cells in your body, and they attract an increase in the body’s own growth factors to come to the site of the injury. Additionally, stem cell injections contain hyaluronic acid, which lubricates joints and tendons, easing the pain and helping restore mobility.

5 Reasons you should choose Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy:

Stem cell therapy begins working immediately.
From the moment of injection, stem cells start to work their magic to regenerate new cartilage and tissue.

It is minimally invasive.
Amniotic stem cell therapy injection treatments are performed in office, under local anesthesia and without serious pain or discomfort.

It speeds healing time.
As the tissues are regenerated and the swelling is minimized, the patient is able to experience more range of motion, less post-operative pain, and less inflammation.

It is all-natural.
We use BioDFactor, a human placental tissue-derived allograft that provides a structural matrix to facilitate tissue regeneration, for all of our amniotic stem cell therapies. BioDFactor is developed through the amniotic membrane tissue of donated placenta from healthy, consenting living donors that have elected scheduled caesarian sections.

Anyone can benefit from it.
It doesn’t matter your age, ethnicity or gender: if you’re suffering from a running injury, are living with diabetes, or anything in between – stem cell therapy can help you.
