Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy refers pain relief treatments that use bone marrow or adipose tissue from your body or that of a close family member. Although regenerative medicine therapies have existed for some time, they are not the primary method used to address painful conditions.
Instead, we opt for therapies containing regenerative tissue derived from Wharton’s jelly, which is rich in growth factors and healing agents. Our approaches do not involve stem cell therapy, and it is crucial to investigate all available options before choosing a non-surgical treatment for pain relief.

Get the Facts About Stem Cell Therapy
Two primary treatments are recognized when talking about stem cell therapy: adipose tissue and bone marrow stem cell therapy.
It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the specifics of each treatment, as they both carry a certain degree of risks.
Here’s a brief summary of each therapy:
Bone Marrow – This stem cell therapy utilizes cells from your own bone marrow or that of a close relative to address your health condition. The extraction of cells from bone marrow requires drilling into the bone, making it an invasive and painful procedure.
Additional risks include potential infection and compromised treatment efficacy if stem cells are drawn to the new wound site rather than the intended target. Also worth noting that stem cells harvested from your bone marrow have aged alongside you, likely diminishing their healing capabilities.
Adipose Tissue – This treatment involves extracting stem cells from your fat tissue, also known as adipose tissue, for pain alleviation. A concern with this approach is that toxins often accumulate in fat tissue and may be reintroduced into your body through the injection.
Furthermore, similar to bone marrow stem cells, adipose tissue stem cells have aged with you and may not be as effective as younger cells or tissue.
Human Cellular Tissue for Pain Relief
At Advanced Spinal Care & Rehab, our doctor does not use conventional stem cell therapy and instead utilizes Wharton’s jelly-derived human cellular tissue due to its rich healing properties.
This tissue is sourced from donated umbilical cords generously provided by mothers following a scheduled cesarean section. The youthful and potent nature of this tissue ensures that the full spectrum of healing properties remains intact.
The injections containing human cellular tissue products are comprised of various beneficial components, such as:
- Growth factors
- Amino acids
- Hyaluronic acid
- And more
Once injected into the damaged or deteriorated tissue, these cells get to work. They assist in the restorative function by supporting the body’s natural healing processes to address the root cause of discomfort.
This method is not only efficient and low-risk, but also enables patients to complete their visit within a single day. Additionally, the likelihood of rejection is minimal, as the components within the tissue remain in their early stages and have not yet developed a distinct immune system yet.
