About Regenerative Medicine
Over time our tissue can lose functionality due to age, injury, and disease. That can mean longer healing time, cellular aging and changing chemical environments. Fortunately, each person is born with building blocks capable of repairing and replenishing tissue. Integrated Pain Solutions aims to optimize the body’s ability to heal itself through regenerative therapies.
Is this Stem Cell Therapy?
By understanding not just the function of stem cells but the entire healing environment within the body we utilize cellular and structural tissues to protect, cushion and support injured tissues to aid in the body’s regenerative process. Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) along with growth factors, cytokines, hyaluronic acid and scaffolding proteins all work together to create the optimal regenerative environment.
What is the source of your products?
The lab that we source our products from has a staff of researchers and technicians that control and oversee every aspect of tissue processing through their own FDA-registered laboratory. The lab is outfitted with the best-in-practice aseptic laboratory and analytical equipment. This equips the team with the tools needed to not only better ensure safety and viability but also to discover new breakthroughs in the field. Through rigorous research, they have identified the Wharton’s Jelly layer of the umbilical cord, as well as placental tissue to be the richest sources of regenerative properties. It’s from these two sources that our four regenerative medicine products are derived, each containing a unique blend of cytokines, MSCs, proteins, growth factors or scaffolding properties: the functional factors involved in the reconstruction, repair, and protection of human tissue.
Where do stem cells come from?
Umbilical Cord Stem Cells are derived from the Wharton’s Jelly found in the umbilical cord of healthy birthed babies from healthy mothers, which is the safest and least-invasive method of extraction available.

Before the Therapy:
If possible, stop or reduce all aspirin products, non-steroidals, Vitamin E supplementation, and the use of fish oil at least five days before the therapy.
Be sure to stay hydrated prior to the procedure.
The duration of the therapy is short, simple, and can take between ten to twenty minutes depending on the amount administered and the procedure chosen. This time will include cleaning and prepping the injection points.
If possible, stop or reduce anti-inflammatory medication for at least one to two weeks.
One Month Post-Therapy:
Aggressive stretching, light-weight training as tolerated by joints.
"For the last decade I’ve had problems with my knees that have gotten progressively worse. People kept saying “When are you going to have your knees replaced, surgery?” I kept saying “Never!”, then I found out about stem cells. I took the plunge and I’m so grateful. Since the weekend after the Thursday shot I felt like dancing, I could tell so much difference in my legs, knees and feet. They don’t hurt anymore!”
“I had severe knee pain in both knees and was waiting for total knee replacement in both knees. I am doing really well (after stem cell therapy), I’m able to walk up to a mile and a half with no pain at all”
The pain was definitely a 10, it really affected my day to day activities. (My pain) now I would probably put at a 2, there are some points I don't have any pain at all.
Since I've had my knee Injections 6 weeks ago the part where it hurts where I feel the pain every time I get up and move is 80% gone. I can now walk like a 64 year old woman and soon I expect I'll be walking like a 44 year old woman.
After having the procedure done it was probably about the 5th week before I started to notice a change. I'm already feeling like 90% better.
Within a day or two, much of the inflammation was gone from the joint and the bunion was down to about a quarter of its size.
