The advantages of using Placental/Amniotic Stem Cells over other traditional therapies are the astounding physiologic benefits that Stem Cells supplement to the healing cascade. Abundant Stem Cells and crucial growth factors are present in Amniotic tissue and when they are injected into an area that requires wound healing and growth they are activated to proliferate and differentiate into the needed types of tissue. Stem Cells have the potential to become cartilage, tendon, ligament, bone, and muscle, as well as the ability to promote other healing factors, which are very vital to the repair. These many added benefits make Placental Stem Cells far superior to other elementary solutions, which have traditionally been utilized for Prolotherapy.
Placental Stem Cells Prolotherapy are harvested from healthy live births, and carry none of the ethical dilemmas that accompany harvesting from embryonic tissues. These cells are very young, healthy, and vigorous undifferentiated cells that have the ability to turn into whatever tissue is in need of repair. They also don’t carry any risks of incompatibility or rejection and undergo the very highest of quality and safety screening.
The Amniotic Stem Cells are then mixed with a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) concentration, which is harvested from your own blood. The PRP is separated from your whole blood after a simple blood draw from one of the veins in your arm. This potent mixture is then injected directly into damaged ligaments, tendons, and joints and the healing process will ensue.
