Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy is a medical treatment that involves using stem cells harvested either from your own body or from a close family member. There are two primary categories within stem cell therapy: bone marrow and adipose tissue procedures.
At Pain & Wellness Institute, we do not administer this stem cell therapy. Our doctor offers human cellular tissue therapy that utilizes regenerative cell tissue sourced from Wharton's Jelly. While this approach is distinct from traditional stem cell therapy, it proves highly effective in relieving pain from chronic injuries and degenerative conditions.

Types of Stem Cell Therapy
Adipose tissue pertains to fat tissue, where stem cells are extracted from your own fat deposits and injected into the afflicted area, fostering healing and pain relief. However, it's important to acknowledge that fat cells may harbor toxins, posing a risk of undesirable outcomes if introduced into the treatment process.
Bone marrow therapy, a long-standing technique, carries its own limitations. The procedure involves invasive measures, necessitating bone drilling to access the marrow. This not only exposes patients to infection risks but also entails a subsequent healing phase.
Both these stem cell approaches utilize cells that have aged in tandem with the individual, potentially compromising their regenerative potential. This isn't to negate their efficacy but rather to highlight considerations before arriving at a final choice.
How Injections Containing Human Cellular Tissue Can Help With Chronic Pain and Orthopedic Conditions
Our preference leans toward employing youthful and vibrant donated human cellular tissue (HCT). We source tissue from accredited tissue banks, obtained from donated umbilical cords following planned C-section deliveries. The mother and baby both remain unharmed during this process.
Contained within this tissue are potent healing agents that collaborate with your body's intrinsic regenerative mechanisms. This synergy facilitates the resolution of pain origins by revitalizing and rehabilitating damaged tissue.
Injections containing human cellular tissue can benefit those who are feeling many different kinds of chronic pain, including:
- Knee pain
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain like a torn or partially torn rotator cuff
- Torn or partially torn labrum
- Elbow pain
- Hip pain
- Other joint pain
- Damaged or degraded cartilage
- Plantar fasciitis
- Disc problems
With HCT therapy, there is little to no pain involved, with little to no risk of infection. There’s also virtually no chance of rejection. The components contained in the injections are still so new and potent.
