About the Therapy

Imagine having the ability to heal any injury by injecting “blank” cells to transform them into healthy tissue. This technique empowers your own body to regrow tissues as simple as tendons, or as complex as brain cells. Sound like science fiction? Now it’s entirely possible with stem cell therapy!

Experience this breakthrough technology and its potential for rapid healing with the latest advances in stem cell research. Our high quality and concentrated injectables, along with a unique injection technique perfected by Dr. Kristopher Goddard delivers powerful stem cells and growth factors directly into the injured area(s) for an accelerated healing process for effective, long-lasting results.

Stem cells can benefit almost anybody with chronic pain and injuries. From pro athletes dealing with major sports injuries to common ailments like lower back pain. Hernias, Achilles tendon pain, rotator cuff injuries, epicondylitis, winged scapula, carpal tunnel, to heel and foot issues – the application for stem cell treatments are many. Stem cells have also proven a very effective treatment to reverse the signs of arthritis and the pain of TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction).

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are the raw material from which the body’s cells are made. They are the origin of all organs and tissues, and have the unique ability to replicate and become any kind of cell: muscle, pancreatic, nerve, heart-virtually anything! At the Osteopathic Center, we employ the usage of the most potent stem cells available. Our cells come with Amniotic tissue acting as an allograft: the cells use this tissue to adhere and help regenerate the affected tissue more rapidly.

Stem cells are also capable of:

  • Reducing inflammation in the body  
  • Fighting cellular death 
  • Stopping even reversing the aging process
  • Reverting damaged tissue and tendons to their healthy original state

How is this done? There are two ways to obtain stem cells. The first is by their extraction from your bone marrow or adipose (fat) tissue. The second is by obtaining stem cells from another individual through an FDA approved process. The cells are then injected directly to the treatment area to create a powerful healing response. With a precise diagnosis and a quality injection technique, the results achieved with stem cell therapy are far beyond any other type of regenerative injection.

How YOU Can Benefit 

Receiving Stem Cell Therapy will help you heal faster and return to a fully functional active lifestyle free of medications, short term solutions, and follow up visits to the doctor. The Osteopathic Center is proud to be one of the few practices in the country that offer a diverse and ample practice specializing in Regenerative Medicine using amniotic stem cells.

Stem Cell Therapy can:

  1. Repair tissue that is too damaged to heal on its own: ankle sprains, carpal tunnel, rotator cuff tear, labral tears  
  2. Regenerate tissue that is missing: cartilage in arthritic joints, cellular re-growth in trauma sites, reinforce muscle and connective tissue that is lost through the aging process
  3. Provide a renewable source of replacement cells and tissues 
  4. Be used in cosmetic procedures to fight aging, i.e., microdermabrasion, wrinkles, sun spots 

All stem cells used in this office are ADULT derived stem cells injected the same day of the visit.  Take advantage of cell rejuvenation and rapid healing with excellent medical care in the comfort of our offices. Call us and make your appointment today to create a personalized healing plan. Experience how Stem Cell Therapy can change your life!

Stem cells are now being studied for use in a wide range of conditions, from diabetes, heart disease, to musculoskeletal and neurological disorders. While stem cells can be derived from several sources, the most adaptable are embryonic and amniotic stem cells. The former is derived from day-old human embryos, while the latter simply from the amniotic fluid surrounding a fetus. Embryonic stem cells have taken a backseat as more and more research has shown a significant improvement in adult stem cell applications. Adult stem cells are most often used to produce new cells of the same lineage.

The body uses these cells naturally to maintain and repair the tissue in which the stem cells develop. Induced pluripotent stem cells are adult stem cells that have been genetically programmed to act like embryonic stem cells. These are important tools in evaluating new drugs and in modeling diseases that help researchers understand how disease develops in the body.

There are different types of stem cells, but in this office (and in the musculoskeletal field), mesenchymal stem cells have been studied extensively and evidenced to grow and regenerate new cells and connective tissues used for the regrowth of ligaments, muscles, and tendons. The ongoing breakthroughs resulting from this vast medical research is exponentially increasing every year.
