What Are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are considered “master cells” because they are the building blocks of all tissues in the body. All other cells begin as stem cells, which develop and differentiate into specific tissue cells as needed. This means they can grow into several different types of specialized cells depending on where they are in the body.
This makes stem cells effective for replacing lost, damaged, diseased, or dysfunctional cells in the body.
For example, in the process of healing a cut in a healthy body, the blood clots, a scab forms, and stem cells develop into skin cells to produce a new skin layer.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
When your own cells become dysfunctional or injured, a new surge of stem cells can be injected into the degenerated part of your body. The injected stem cells wake up the existing dormant stem cells to repair damaged tissue.
This makes stem cells a potent treatment for injuries or conditions caused by cellular degradation. These rich, potent cells are uniquely able to protect, cushion, and support injured or degenerated parts of the body. They can help create an optimal environment for healing and restoration wherever they are injected.
Where Do Stem Cells Come From?
These cells are processed from two vital birthing tissue sources:
- The Wharton’s jelly layer of the umbilical cord (the connective tissue that surrounds the umbilical cord)
- The placental tissue
We get our products from Signature Biologics, a cutting-edge research and production laboratory. Their products are ethically sourced, and they use innovative techniques to manufacture products that promote healing in the body. They are committed to innovation, quality, and integrity.

How Do I Know if Stem Cell Therapy Is Right for Me?
Stem cells promote healthy tissues and help reduce inflammation. Therefore, this treatment is ideal for patients struggling with chronic conditions caused by cell or tissue degradation or traumatic injuries.
SCT may be an alternative to surgical intervention in some cases.
Schedule a consultation with one of our medical experts to determine if stem cell injections can improve your quality of life. They will evaluate your condition and determine a treatment plan.
How Is Stem Cell Treatment Performed?
The mesenchymal stem cells are injected using a thin needle and guided into the target area using ultrasound or X-ray guidance technology. Most stem cell treatments inject the solution directly into the affected area, but the surrounding areas may be targeted in some cases instead.
All injections done at the Advanced Relief Institute include lidocaine (a local anesthetic) to ease potential discomfort.
Patients may experience minor redness, swelling, or tenderness around the injection sites for a few days. Otherwise, you may resume daily activities within a week or so.
What Should I Avoid After Stem Cell Therapy?
If your treatment is applied to an injury, do your best not to place significant strain on the treated area for a few months. This involves not manually rotating, manipulating, or stretching the area.
The results of treatment take time and develop over the following year. Significant stress on the treated area can damage the cells before they can fully repair the area.
After the injection, the repair response and rejuvenation process begins within 60 to 90 days, but final results take time to develop. While the exact timeline varies from patient to patient, the body generally takes 12 months to complete cellular reproduction and tissue restoration.
During this time, pain and inflammation from injuries or chronic conditions should fade gradually. Patients may also notice an increase in functionality, flexibility, and strength.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Depending on the nature of your injury or condition, your results may last between a year and a lifetime.
Stem cell therapy has an 80 to 85 percent success rate, with 50 percent to 100 percent improvement. These results are collected from the three years of treatments given at the Advanced Relief Institute.
Your stem cell therapy cost will depend on the severity of your condition and the extent of treatment needed. We can provide you with specific pricing after an evaluation by one of our pain management specialists.
