So what exactly is Prolotherapy? You may recall one of our earlier blog posts, which compared stem cell therapy to platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy. To summarize that post, stem cell therapy uses stem cells extracted from your body, to treat painful conditions, by regenerating the damaged tissue. PRP utilizes plasma, extracted from your blood, enriched with your platelets, and is used to regenerate bone and soft tissue. acCELLerate™ combines your plasma, platelets, and stem cells. Prolotherapy, or Proliferation Therapy, is also known as regenerative injection therapy. It is an alternative form of treatment, which involves injecting the damaged [...]
To explain how adult stem cells work, we begin by taking a closer look at the natural healing processes of your body. Inside our bone marrow there are stem cells that have aged to different levels of maturation. Later on, these stem cells are recruited to transform into blood cells (hematopoietic) and muscle or bone cells (mesenchymal). All of the cells in your body (except nerve cells) are pre-programmed to die at a certain age, and adult stem cells are their replacements. When injured, our body fires up the natural healing process commonly known as inflammation. Have you ever sprained your wrist or broken your leg? If yes, then you know what inflammation looks and feels like. [...]

What are stem cells? Stem Cells are unspecialized cells that can transform into any type of cell (muscle, brain, blood, nerve, and more), then divide into additional cells of that type. Are there different types of stem cells? Adult or somatic: stem cells drawn from bone marrow, and muscle, used in regenerative medicine to replace cells lost because of normal wear and tear. Embryonic: stem cells drawn from human embryos and grown in a laboratory. What characteristics make a stem cell so special? Stem Cells are capable of dividing and renewing themselves for long periods; they are [...]
Stem cells are the only type of cells in the body that are capable of rearranging into a specialized cell. During a stem cell therapy session, your own stem cells are injected into the damaged or degenerated joint, which transforms them into a entirely new cell known as a chondrocyte. A chondrocyte is the cell found in healthy cartilage that produces and maintains the cartilaginous matrix of collagen and proteoglycans. These specialized chondrocytes accelerate your body’s natural healing process by reducing inflammation, and preventing degeneration. The effect of a stem cell treatment can include increased range of motion, and decreased [...]
