About Regenerative Joint Therapy
Stem Cell Injections derived from donated cord blood, PRP and AmnioFix (amniotic fluid) injections use the patient’s own physical healing powers to create a bridge between conservative standard of care treatments and surgery for musculoskeletal injuries and arthritis. They are relatively non-invasive and comparatively inexpensive. They can heal acute and chronic tendon, ligament, and cartilage injuries — torn meniscus, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tennis elbow among others — as well as arthritic joint pain. Traumeel is a natural anti-inflammatory compound used by physicians in place of steroidal injections. just as effective but with none of the side effects, it can be injected into any joint, tendon, ligament or area of the body where you may be experiencing pain and inflammation.

Stem Cell Rich Cord Blood Products $2,400/area
The use of umbilical cord blood stem cells and growth factors in regenerative medicine are vast. Cord blood is a rich source of hematopoietic stem cells and mesenchymal stromal cells, similar to those found in bone marrow, and have the ability to develop into many different cell types. These cells are attracted to the site of injury and signal healthy cells to regenerate new, healthier cells. Umbilical cord blood presents as a prolific source of cells, signaling proteins, and growth factors with potential benefits for use in regenerative medicine (Damien and Allan 2015). It contains hematopoietic stem cells (HSC), mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), and endothelial cells (Roura, Pujal, Galvez-Moon 2015). MSCs can help with inflammation modulatory response, release various growth factors, and can help supplement various connective tissue repair needs. Endothelial stem cells will form the lining of blood and lymph vessels and help vascularize tissue, making endothelial cells an increasingly compelling interest in the orthopedic applications (Atesok et al. 2012) and ischemic damage (Au et al. 2008).

PRP (platelet rich plasma) $600/first area $400/add-on area
Amniotic Fluid Injections $800/area
The amniotic membrane injection uses a dehydrated form of human amniotic membrane. These tissues provide a non-steroidal mechanism to alleviate pain through reducing inflammation.
The fluid contains growth factors that promote the generation of new tissue and call in the body’s stem cells, anti-inflammatory properties including cytokines that relieve pain and hyaluronic acid, a prominent component of joint fluid that lubricates the area and promotes the growth of new cartilage. Hyaluronic acid is the main component of viscosupplementation injections with the highly effective but less safe Synvisc and Hyalgan medicines.
Amniotic fluid is by nature anti-microbial and is able to prevent and eliminate potential infectious agents and the injection substance is derived from live willing donors and does not involve any fetal tissue.

Traumeel $195 first area or $50 as an add-on to any other injection
Traumeel is is a fixed combination of diluted plant and mineral extracts used to treat acute musculoskeletal injuries, such as sprains and traumatic injuries, and as supportive therapy in pain and inflammation of the musculoskeletal system. It can be used alone for pain and inflammation or combined with PRP or AmnioFix as an adjunct to those regenerative treatments for more immediate pain relief.
Developed by the German physician, Dr Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg in the 1930’s, Traumeel injections are very popular among individuals who suffer from pain that is preventing them from leading a full and active lifestyle. It’s a safe and natural alternative to cortisone and anti-inflammatory medications and is frequently used for athletes in season with a quick recovery time or following regenerative treatments to resolve any lingering inflammation post procedure.
