Live your life, Pain free
Resolve pain and restore mobility in damaged joints naturally with Regenerative Medicine.
Improved Motion + Function
Minimal Recovery Time
Another Cortisone Shot Isn't the Answer.
While cortisone shots can be used to reduce inflammation, they do something else, too: prevent your body from healing. Inflammation actually signals your body’s stem cells to find and repair damaged connective tissue in ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and muscle. But the cortisone shots–or even NSAID drugs like Ibuprofen–you’re taking to get rid of inflammation are preventing your stem cells from ever receiving a message that something is wrong.
Living your best life starts with feeling your best
Our team of health professionals will first diagnose the root cause of your symptoms. Then we design a care plan that gets you back to feeling like yourself again.
By signaling the body’s own regenerative stem cells, the body is able to heal faster and stronger by improving the cushioning and lubrication of the joint.
Improved motion + function
Regenerative Medicine is non-invasive–no cutting, scraping, or moving tissue involved–so the joint can heal naturally without losing any mobility.
Minimal recovery time
Regenerative Medicine allows patients to return to their daily activities within 3-4 weeks. Our results get you back to normal faster than surgery.

What Is a Stem Cell?
A stem cell is a special cell inside your body that is responsible for healing and repair of your tissues. Your cells are constantly dying and being replaced with new cells. When a new cell is needed a stem cell will grow and develop into the type of cell that is needed. This happens for heart cells, lung cells, skin cells, hair cells, cartilage cells, muscle cells, nerve cells and basically any cell that the body needs. This process is how you stay alive throughout your lifetime. Your body is a self-healing organism.
What Is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative Medicine is a healing art that harnesses the self-healing capabilities of the body. Science has researched stem cells and how they work for over 70 years. In the last 20 years, medical treatments and procedures have been developed based on the concept of how stem cells work inside our own body. The goal is to signal the body using an externally injected tissue which then signals the body to begin a healing and repair response. The goal of doctors who practice Regenerative Medicine is to restore lost function due to age, illness, injury, or disease.
How do I know it will work?
The doctors and medical providers at Vitality Integrative Wellness have been treating patients with arthritis and degenerative joint disease for over 18 years. We were one of the early adopters of Regenerative Medicine and have incorporated Regenerative Medicine treatment into our practice for over 7 years.
We have performed thousands of procedures and have a vast base of clinical knowledge to draw from. Essentially, we can tell at your consultation and examination if you are a good candidate or not for Regenerative Medicine. We will not accept your case unless we have had past clinical success with your type of condition. We have a high degree of success and have a 90% patient satisfaction rating.
What types of conditions respond to Regenerative Medicine?
The purpose of a Regenerative Medicine procedure is to restore function to a joint that has lost stability, lubrication, or cushioning. This means that weight bearing joints and joints that get a lot of use in our daily lives respond very well.
Some common conditions that Regenerative Medicine may help are:
- Knee pain or knee arthritis (loss of meniscal cartilage)
- Shoulder pain or shoulder arthritis (rotator cuff tears, labrum damage)
- Lumbar or low back degenerative joint disease (facet)
- Cervical or neck degenerative joint disease (facet)
- Peripheral Neuropathy (numbness, tingling, or burning of the legs and feet)
- Tennis Elbow
- Golfers Elbow
- Ligament or tendon tears
- Cartilage degeneration or cartilage damage (tears, etc.)
How long until I notice results?
The simple answer is, very quickly - usually 1-2 days for minor conditions and up to 3-4 weeks for more complicated conditions. On average the typical patient will notice 30-50% improvement by the 4th or 5th week after the procedure. Of course, every patient responds differently, and it is difficult to determine exactly how quickly you will respond.
Is there any downtime or recovery period?
No. The entire procedure can be completed in about 30-45 minutes and you will be able to walk out on your own with no assistance.
After the procedure, you may return to your regular routine with a couple of exceptions:
- We ask that you perform no weight-bearing exercise for 4 weeks after your procedure.
- Limit walking and standing to no longer than 30 minutes at a time. If you feel pain, stop whatever you are doing and rest.
- Avoid foods that are known to contribute to inflammation. We will provide you with a list of these foods in your new patient packet.
Are my results permanent?
This is a very complicated question. In general, we would say that assuming you do not re-injure the area in the future or cause any more damage to the joint then yes, the results are long lasting. That being said, nothing within your body can be considered permanent. Remember, our cells are constantly growing, changing, and dying. Your body will continue to age no matter how successful Regenerative Medicine is. To that extent, the joint or area that was injected will still continue to age along with every other cell in your body.
Does insurance cover this?
No. There is currently no insurance company anywhere in the world that covers the cost of Regenerative Medicine. We have many financing options available to fit most any budget. Costs of Regenerative Medicine will vary based on the severity of the condition. We will always be up front with the cost of treatment once a member of our medical team has examined you and determined the necessary care plan.
