Stem cell therapy is one of the most significant medical advances in recent years and marks a significant breakthrough that will lead to the next generation of medicine. It’s a better way to relieve pain with a medical approach that doesn’t involve dangerous or addictive drugs. We avoid those kinds of pharmaceuticals because of the negative effects they can have on patients, and because they mask the symptoms without treating the underlying problem.
Patients who use drugs to relieve their pain may not feel the warning signs from their body when they engage in the very activities that caused their problems in the first place. Our doctors care deeply about every patient they see, and take great care to ensure that they address the real issue instead of simply masking the symptoms.
What Can Stem Cell Therapy Treat?
Our services are designed to offer relief from a wide variety of common symptoms. Stem cells can be used to replace or regenerate all types of tissue in the human body, which makes this particular treatment option incredibly useful. Here are just a few of this things stem cell therapy can be used to treat:
- Back pain
- Knee pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder and other joint pain
- Muscle pain
- Other chronic pain
Where Do Stem Cells Come From?
Stem cells can come from two sources.
1. The patient can have their own fat or bone marrow extracted; then injected back into their own body.
2. Stem cells are harvested from the blood of donated umbilical cord tissue from healthy births.

Science has proven that umbilical cord stem cells have the highest potency of any stem cells that are available, so we use them here at Principled Healthcare for very good reason. Stem cells from a 9-month-old are 200 times more potent when compared to stem cells taken from a 60-year-old adult’s fat or bone marrow.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
One of the best things about stem cell therapy is that it’s all natural and not very invasive. The procedure may vary depending on a patient’s specific needs, but it generally involves a few simple steps.
1. The source of the pain is diagnosed. Doctors hone in on the problem by using ultrasound technology as well as other advanced methods of analysis.
2. Doctors inject the stem cells into a patient’s problem area. It’s a simple and effective outpatient procedure.
3. A patient may return for future injections of their stem cells to keep the problems at bay long term if needed, but this isn’t always necessary.
Patients will experience fast results and notice a significant reduction in the pain they experience, although the effect is not completely immediate. Patients normally start to notice results in about three weeks as the stem cells work to reduce inflammation and repair damaged tissue. In conjunction with physical therapy and other naturopathic treatments, stem cell therapy can alleviate almost all symptoms of pain in the treated area.
Is Stem Cell Therapy Effective?
The short answer is that, yes, stem cell therapy is extremely effective. It’s especially useful for reducing symptoms like knee pain and back pain. Patients get excellent results from stem cells when they’re experiencing chronic pain that comes naturally from getting older or pain that started as the result of an accident.
Stem cells are already at work in your body to rebuild damaged tissue. Stem cell therapy helps focus this work where it’s most needed. Stem cells will work wonders for damaged cartilage, tendons, or ligaments. When doctors inject stem cells into a damaged area, the stem cells can transform into the type of cells needed in the joint or back.
