Current treatments for the painful and debilitating effects of arthritis or joint pain rely on early intervention with synthetic drugs and, in severe cases, surgery. The pharmaceutical approach to these conditions is still not effective for some 20% to 40% of those suffering from arthritis or other degenerative joint conditions. According to the National Institute of Health, Regenerative Medicine utilizing stem cell therapy provides a promising alternative to surgery by promoting safe and natural healing. This less invasive approach attracts thousands each year. Regenerative medicine using cellular therapy is now available at Spine Correction Center of the Rockies, one of the few clinics in the country to offer regenerative cellular therapy utilizing an amniotic allograft tissue matrix.
Emerging Therapy Combining Exosomes:
Stem cells are found in all of us and play a key role in the body’s healing process. They lie latent in your body until they receive signals that the body has suffered an injury and then they follow your platelets to the injured site. Stem cells are able to transform into the same type of cell that was injured to promote healing. They are tasked to heal injured ligaments, tendons, tissues and bones. After an injury, or as a natural result of aging, the number of stem cells needed in certain areas of the body declines. Regenerative medicine utilizing cellular therapy solves this problem by delivering a high concentration of growth factors into the injured area promoting natural healing.
The procedure is simple and takes just 45 minutes. The regenerative medicine therapy can be performed right in the Spine Correction Center office and can provide pain relief without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, hospital stays or prolonged recovery. There is a short recovery time after this therapy. Regenerative cellular therapy with amniotic allograft has been used by physicians for years. The injections have been used over 10,000 times in the United States with low reported adverse side effects and have a 100% safety record in Europe with 100,000’s of patients.
For clarification, this type of tissue comes from the amniotic sac, umbilical cord, placental tissue – not an embryo. While ethical debates have arisen about embryonic stem cell therapy, most everyone agrees that the use of amniotic allograft tissues raises no ethical or moral questions.
How it Works
Regenerative cellular therapy takes advantage of the body’s ability to repair itself. Your Spine Correction Center provider will inject an amniotic allograft tissue matrix into your body. Similar to cortisone and steroid shots, these injections have anti-inflammatory properties, but offer far more benefits than those of standard injection therapies. While cortisone and other drugs only provide temporary pain relief, our treatment delivers cells and growth factors to help degenerated tissue and may provide pain relief. The growth factors in amniotic allograft tissues may activate your body’s own stem cells causing healing. Additionally, these injections contain hyaluronic acid, which lubricates joints and tendons, easing the pain and helping restore mobility.

Frequently Asked Questions
- How do I know if I’m a candidate?
If you have areas of inflammation and pain, soft-tissue defects, tendon and ligament injuries, cartilage injuries, muscle injuries, fascial injuries, injured nerves, tendinosis, osteoarthritis or joint tendinitis you’re a candidate for cellular therapy.
- What is the process like?
We start with an evaluation and x-rays. This process takes about an hour. Based on the evaluation, we’ll schedule a time for the injection. It is typically one injection done by our Nurse Practitioner. The procedure takes about 20 minutes and that’s it! No waiting, surgery, or invasive procedures.
- Are there limitations or specific instructions following the procedure?
There are some limitations in physical activity in the 2 weeks following and working your way back up in activity level between weeks 3 and 8. If you are normally inactive some movement is encouraged. This would be walking and periods of standing and sitting. If you are an extremely active person it is advised to decrease activity for a few weeks following the procedure.
- Will I need physical therapy afterward?
This is very case-specific and we can advise on this more for each individual patient.
- Will I need x-rays or an MRI?
You will need x-rays. If you have had x-rays or a MRI done within the last year we will view those.
- How quickly can I get in?
We can get you scheduled right away for the evaluation and x-rays.
- What is your success rate?
Each case is different therefore everyone’s results are different. We have seen great success with the procedures we have done.
- What is the long term outlook?
The long term outlook is case-specific and is dependent on the joint we are treating as well as how extensive the damage to the tissue is.
- Does it hurt?
The procedure is different for everyone. We don’t see our patients experiencing much discomfort with the injection.
- How quickly will I see relief?
The timeline for relief varies. Some patients experience relief immediately following the injection while others may experience a decrease in discomfort over the next 2-4 weeks.
- What should I wear?
Wear clothes that fit loosely over the injection site.
- What if it doesn’t work?
We review this on a case by case basis.
- How long does it last?
It is one injection for the rest of your life. In rare occasions a patient may need a “booster” injection later in life.

Unfortunately, at this time there is no insurance coverage for this service.
- Do you offer payment plans?
