Osteoarthritis is a degenerative, progressively painful disease that is usually caused by inflammation or injury. Osteoarthritis leads to the loss of cartilage in the joints, which causes loss of motion and an increase in pain. Facet joint osteoarthritis can be particularly painful or debilitating as it affects the lower back, which is constantly in motion.

For minor pain associated with facet joint osteoarthritis, simple stretching or the use of acetaminophen can alleviate discomfort. But for severe pain, the common recommendation has been for the patient to undergo spinal fusion surgery, with the idea being to stop the motion at the painful joint. However, spinal fusion is a notoriously unsuccessful surgery, with as much as a 36% failure rate, and can often worsen the condition.

But now there is a better way. Thanks to advancements in stem cell therapy, patients can lead pain-free lives and regain all the motion they once had. They can get their backs back.

Here’s how amniotic stem cell therapy can heal facet joint osteoarthritis:

Amniotic stem cell therapy has been shown to be effective in healing the cartilage that has been lost to osteoarthritis by releasing essential growth factors (cytokines, amino acids, carbohydrates, hyaluronic acid, extracellular matrix proteins, and other cellular components) as well as recruiting your body’s own stem cells to the injured site to promote tissue regeneration.

In other words: amnio-therapy will help your body will regrow its own cartilage.

To achieve this result we use an exact, image-guided injection of a liquid allograft comprised of amnion and amniotic fluid components to feed and grow stem cells at the affected area. As a result, amnion-derived allografts make an attractive wound biomaterial that promotes a rapid, natural healing of your cartilage from the inside out.

This is a non-invasive, non-surgical solution to facet joint osteoarthritis that is far less dangerous than spinal surgery and can provide noticeable results within only a few weeks and completed repair of the tissue within two to three months.

The benefits of amniotic stem cell therapy:
  • Faster healing
  • Little to no downtime
  • Improved functionality
  • No surgery
  • No prolonged surgical recovery
  • None of the complications common with surgery
