By Physicians Rehabilitation
Stimulate your body’s own stem cells to proliferate and target damaged cells in your body to repair or replace them.
Stem cells are the “gold standard” in regenerative medicine. Today, physicians are using stem cell therapies in the treatment of many diseases/disorders and traumas. The use of stem cells may help deter a knee replacement or surgical procedure and improve the function of joints following injury. Practitioners today are also using stem cells within disciplines like pain management, cardiology, rheumatology and neurology.
As with other cells in our body, stem cells age as we do. That’s why at Physicians Rehabilitation, we provide stem cells that are derived from umbilical cord tissue/blood. These “young” stem cells are highly potent and able to efficiently repair “old” or damaged cells.
Research has shown that umbilical cord-derived stem cells are not susceptible to malignant transformation (they do not transform into cancer cells), making them safe for therapeutic use in patients for cell therapy.
Umbilical cord-derived stem cells continue to excrete proteins and growth factors for about 3 months.
It’s About Potency When Comparing Live Stem Cell Options.
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 injectable 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 been shown to be one of the best therapeutic methods to help aid in tissue healing and repair.
Umbilical Cord Stem Cells provide a natural healing therapy with cells that are native to our body.
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), yocytes (muscle cells) and adipocytes (fat cells).
Our regenerative medicine product is produced in compliance with FDA Current Good Manufacturing Practice and GTP (Good Tissue Practices) standards, which assure quality and safety.

What are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are unspecialized cells in our bodies that have the capacity to change into ANY healthy cell. The body is made up of about 200 different types
of specialized cells.
How Do They Work?
Stemcellshavethecapacitytomigrate to injured tissues, a phenomenon called homing. This occurs by injury/disease signals that are 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.
First, they release growth factors which help in controlling the inflammatory response that in turn relieves pain while it works to heal tissue and other cells. In addition, stem cells work to increase blood flow to an area by forming new blood vessels.
Cells with the most damage is where the injected stem cells will migrate first. The release of growth factors set the stage for the replication of the
necessary healthy cells to repair the damage.
