Stem Cell Therapy
Stem Cell Therapy in Golden
Discovered over 40 years ago, stem cells are considered “unspecialized” or “undifferentiated” cells that have the ability to develop into “specialized” cells. Blood, liver, muscle and brain cells are specialized cells because they perform unique functions other cells cannot perform. The process of evolving into a specialized cell is called “differentiation”. Some areas of your body contain stem cells that regularly divide for the purpose of renewing and repairing soft tissues. Your gastrointestinal tract and bone marrow are areas where stem cells constantly divide, renew and repair damaged tissues.
The types of Stem Cells used at Weiss Chiropractic & Regenerative Wellness are referred to as Mesenchymal Stem Cells or (MSCs). These are generally collected right after childbirth so that the best stem cells can be used. We do not use any fetal tissue within our therapies.

What Conditions Can Be Treated with Stem Cell Therapy?
Knee pain conditions benefiting from stem cell therapy in Golden include:
- Meniscus tears
- Deterioration of knee cartilage
- Knee bursitis
- Patellar tendonitis
After your stem cell therapist diagnoses the cause of your pain, stem cell injections are prepared that address tissue damage at the cellular level. Within a few weeks of stem cell therapy, specialized cells start repairing inflamed tissues, cartilage is regrown and muscles heal. Sometimes augmented with platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP), stem cell therapy utilizes your body’s inherent ability to heal itself by stimulating and energizing self-repair processes.
Hip pain and stiffness is commonly attributed to:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Hip labral tear (the labrum is a cartilage ring following the external rim of your hip joint socket)
Stem cell therapy soothes inflammation affecting damaged hip tissues while working to rebuild cartilage deteriorated by arthritis or osteoarthritis. Following treatment of your hip pain with stem cell injections, you will enjoy dramatically reduced pain, improved mobility and enhanced hip functioning
Chronic shoulder pain that does not respond to home treatments may be caused by:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Rotator cuff/tendon/cartilage tears
Stem cell therapy in Golden for chronic shoulder pain decreases inflammation and pain, promotes growth of new blood vessels to supply the area with fresh blood, repairs damaged cartilage and improves range of motion.
If you have been diagnosed with one or more of the following conditions causing foot and/or ankle pain, talk to our stem cell therapist before considering invasive or medication-heavy treatments:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendonitis
- Heel bone bursitis (retrocalcaneal bursitis)
Pain in the hand or wrist is commonly caused by carpal tunnel syndrome. A severe irritation of the carpel tunnel nerve extending through your wrist into your hand, carpal tunnel syndrome often affects people who use their hands, wrist and fingers repetitively. Painters, carpet layers, computer keyboardists and musical instrument players are at risk for carpal tunnel syndrome.
Other reasons for moderate to severe hand or wrist pain and swelling include arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout and tendinitis. Stem cell therapy for these conditions can be a viable alternative to surgery that could worsen pain, swelling and inflammation.
