Stem Cell Therapy & Treatments
(Autologous & Donor Cells)
Stem cell treatments utilize cells that haven’t yet been assigned to a specific function. When the doctors extract them, they are re-allocating them to a place where they can be more helpful for your body. Once they are reallocated, the goal is for those cells take on the properties of the damaged or lacking cells in the hope that this action will stimulate healing.
These treatments are commonly referred to as Orthobiologics. Orthobiologics are an innovative area of medicine that utilizes the body’s own cells and healing factors in an attempt to reverse debilitating effects of degeneration or injury.
When these autologous healing substances are injected into the affected area in high concentrations, they can promote a faster healing process and potentially stimulate repair.
NMA’s Regenerative Program offers four primary types of orthobiologics, sometimes used in conjunction:
Alpha 2 Macroglobulin, Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP), Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) and stromal vascular fraction (SVF)

Providing patients with a customized treatment plan to address their chronic pain and injury allows us to focus on the source of the issues as opposed to just masking the symptoms.
I want to show you exactly how therapy including Stem Cells can change your life forever.
Whether it’s keeping you from sleep, from playing at the park with your kids or grandkids, or making life in general painful and difficult; spine and joint pain is not something you should have to endure, especially now that Medical Experts have discovered alternative treatments to surgery!
In the past, if you wanted to get treatment for joint pain, you would be prescribed medication that only went as far as treating the symptoms.
If you wanted something that addressed the underlying disease process or injury you’d have to resort to surgery with a recovery time that makes you wonder if treatment is even worth it at all.
However, orthobiologics allow us to target the source of the problem in an attempt to stimulate the body to self-repair.
Research in Stem Cells goes as far back as 1968, and in that time they discovered Stem Cells could be used to treat leukemia as well many other diseases. Scientists and Medical Professionals today have made many advances so that this treatment can be brought to you easily and ethically.
Stem Cells have been used to treat osteoarthritis, wounded tendons and ligaments, heal damaged muscle tissue, and the list goes on. It’s no wonder something as extraordinary as this could be used to treat pain.
During a consultation, you will be educated on the treatments offered and Nona Medical Arts and find out if you are a good candidate for this type of treatment.
How Stem Cells Work
Joint pain is often caused by cartilage being worn down, and the degeneration of other parts of the body, and if that problem persists for too long you could end up with bone rubbing against bone. Cartilage is a smooth layer that protects your bones from rubbing against each other when they’re in use or resting. When the cartilage wears down the surface becomes rough, making it painful to move around, reducing flexibility, and after a day’s work, leaves you with sore and aching joints in your resting time.
Essentially, Stem Cell Therapy is able to reverse the breakdown of cartilage and restore your joints to their original condition. First, the doctors will collect stem cells from your own tissue. But don’t worry, this is completely non-surgical and no scalpels are necessary.
A needle is used to extract the stem cells and then after only a few minutes of preparation it is re-injected into the region that is causing you pain. From there the stem cells begin working on the worn down cartilage and repair it back to peak condition.
Is This Right For You?
Stem Cell Therapy is effective for treating osteoarthritis, knee cartilage degeneration, damaged muscle tissue, damaged tendons and ligaments, knee injury or degeneration, damaged knee caps, and sore knees. For some people, surgery just isn’t an option whether that’s due to a busy personal life or a demanding work schedule. For others the procedure is too intimidating or weighs too heavily on their health for the duration of the recovery period for it to be a realistic option.
Stem Cell Therapy is perfect for anyone who suffers from these issues and wants to be whole without painful surgery.
