Stem Cell Therapy Treatments in Arizona

The types of treatments available.

BACK PAIN

Back pain is unfortunately one of the most common reasons patients visit their physician.  Most causes of back pain can be managed conservatively with physical therapy, cortisone injections or chiropractic manipulation.  Although, when these treatments have failed to alleviate the pain, conventional treatment may turn to surgery as an end result to take away the pain. In many cases, surgery is not the best answer and sometimes can make the problems worse.

The physicians at Arizona Stem Cell Therapy / Apex are using new techniques with stem cell therapy as a back pain treatment using a high dose of isolated  stem cells, platelet lysate and cytokines.   This completely natural injection is best suited for patients who have suffered from chronic back pain and have failed with previous spinal treatments.  Call to schedule and appointment to discuss your treatment options with one of our physicians to determine if stem cell treatment is appropriate for you.

KNEE PAIN

Knee pain is extremely common and is caused by a wide range of conditions.  An old knee surgery or injury can suddenly start causing severe pain or the pain may develop as a mild discomfort and gradually worsen over a period of years.  A medical exam and a review of your imaging will help our doctors determine the type of problem that needs treatment. Patients with knee pain will often have trouble with sleeping, walking, exercise, hobbies or have a feeling of general instability.

Research has shown that treatment with advanced stem cell therapies using Bone Marrow derived stem cells (BMAC), Adipose Derived Stem Cells (ADSC) or Umbilical Cord Cells have been helpful for treating a number of conditions such as Arthritis, Meniscal Tears, Ligament Sprains, Patellar Tendonitis/Tendinosis, Osteochondral (Cartilage) Defects and Patellofemoral Pain (Jumper’s Knee).

SHOULDER PAIN

Arizona Stem Cell Therapy / Apex procedures provide non-surgical alternatives to patients facing shoulder surgery. Shoulder pain is very common but the surgery and recovery are often more complex than a hip or knee surgery.  They include substantial cost, risks of complication and a long rehabilitation. Many times the functionality never completely returns after these surgeries.

Many factors can attribute to shoulder pain. Most shoulder pain can be traced back to arthritis, tendon inflammation, such as bursitis or tendonitis, instability issues or a fracture. Patients with shoulder pain may have trouble with movement, night pain or general weakness of the shoulder.

Research has shown that treatment with advanced stem cell therapies using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cells, Adipose Derived Stem Cells or Umbilical Cord Cells have been helpful for treating a variety of conditions such as arthritis, partial rotator cuff tears and rotator cuff tendonitis.

HIP PAIN

If you’re suffering from chronic Hip pain or facing a joint replacement surgery, Arizona Stem Cell Therapy / Apex may have a solution for you that doesn’t include painful surgery and long recovery times. Through advanced Stem Cell treatments, your body’s own platelets (PRP) and Stem Cells are activated to stimulate healing and stop Hip pain.

Hip pain is extremely common and is caused by a wide range of conditions.  An old Hip surgery or injury can suddenly start causing severe pain or the pain may develop as a mild discomfort and gradually worsen over a period of years.  A medical exam and a review of your imaging will help our Physicians determine the type of problem that needs treatment. Patients with Hip pain will often have trouble with sleeping, walking, exercise, hobbies or have a feeling of general instability.

Research has shown that treatment with advanced stem cell therapies using Bone Marrow derived Stem Sells (BMSC), Adipose derived Stem Cells (ADSC) or Umbilical Cord Cells have been helpful for treating a number of conditions such as Arthritis, Bursitis, Labral Tears and Sacroiliac Joint Pain.

Types of Stem Cells

The types of stem cells we use in our protocols are explained below.

PRP

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is derived from the peripheral blood of the patient being treated. PRP contains a small amount of stem cells and the healing capability is mostly due to the bioactive molecules present in the injection. PRP treatments will typically range from $500-$2000 per joint. Here at Arizona Stem Cell Therapy / Apex we provide PRP treatments with all our stem cell treatments for free of charge. We also provide PRP treatments independently of stem cell treatments for patients with more mild conditions or those who prefer a less expensive option.

PLACENTAL TISSUE STEM CELLS

These are similar to umbilical cord derived stem cells and are obtained in the same manner, but are extracted from placental tissue rather than the umbilical cord.

UMBILICAL CORD STEM CELLS

Umbilical cord stem cells are retrieved from the umbilical cords of healthy, live caesarean delivered births and donated by the mothers. These are by far the most effective type of stem cells that are obtained by ethic means and available today. The young age of the stem cells makes them far more biologically active and gives them a greater ability to divide and grow tissue than older stem cells. Younger stem cells are about 10 times more potent than that of older stem cells. Umbilical stem cells contain several different types of stem cells including mainly mesenchymal stem cells and hematopoietic stem cells. This allows for treatments of many different diseases and conditions.

AMNIOTIC FLUID STEM CELLS

Amniotic fluid is the fluid in which a newborn baby lives during a woman’s pregnancy. There are some stem cells floating within the fluid which allow for proper development of a growing fetus, but they are few in number. There are also many different types of bioactive molecules which aid in tissue growth. This is the least expensive type of stem cell treatment available because it contains the least amount of stem cells, but it is also the least effective. Amniotic fluid stem cell treatment is best used in patients with very mild degenerative conditions or as a supplemental treatment to an umbilical cord derived stem cell treatment to help accelerate tissue regeneration.
