Stem Cell Therapies becoming a Common Treatment

Presently, the use of stem cells is becoming common practice with orthopedics as it may help deter a knee replacement or surgical procedure and improve function of joints following injury. Practitioners today are also using stem cells within such disciplines as pain management, cardiology, rheumatology and neurology.

Why Choose Stem Cell Therapy? 

As do other cells in our body, stem cells also age as we do. That is why the Northern Arizona Pain Institutes provide stem cells derived from umbilical cord tissue/blood. This is a natural healing therapy with cells native to our body.

​Our regenerative stem cell injections are derived from an umbilical cord tissue/blood product that captures all the greatest regenerative properties of this otherwise discarded tissue. Our brand of stem cell injectables uses a proprietary method of isolating growth factors, cells and stem cells giving our patients the best possible benefits from a regenerative medicine product. 

The use of cells, stem cells and growth factors have all shown to be one of the best therapeutic methods to help aid in tissue healing and repair.

​Mesenchymal stem cells, or MSCs, are multipotent stromal cells (a type of cell that makes up certain types of connective tissue) that can differentiate into a variety of cell types, including osteoblasts (bone cells), chondrocytes (cartilage cells), myocytes (muscle cells) and adipocytes (fat cells).

​Our regenerative medicine product is produced in compliance with FDA CGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practice) and GTP (Good Tissue Practices) standards, which assures quality and safety in this product.

​Research has shown that umbilical cord-derived stem cells are not susceptible to malignant transformation in a serum-free medium, making them safe for therapeutic use in patients for cell therapy.

How Does It Work?

Stem cells have the capacity to migrate to injured tissues, a phenomenon called homing. This occurs by injury/disease signals released from the distressed cells/tissue. Once stem cells are delivered to a site of injury or deployed into the blood stream they go to these distressed signals and dock on adjacent cells to commence performing their job.

​If you have an injury, or if you have tendons or ligaments that have become inflamed, stem cell therapy may help. It uses your body’s own stem cells to help heal damage. It may help you avoid surgery. Learn more at
