Ongoing Research Participation
We enroll our patients in ongoing research protocols and data system for collection & analysis of best outcome results from therapies. We keep records of procedures performed in our outcomes database & in shared and published databases. Patients are always treated with the best protocols & treatments based on the latest research data & informed consent on investigational nature of treatments. Strict sterile protocols & universal precautions are followed by out office and staff.
Treatments at other Clinics :
"Patch up" treatments like, addicting pain medications, Steroid injection, surgery (many side effects including weight gain & increased blood sugar, damage to kidneys, heart, stroke & gastric ulcer from NSAIDs.)
May not know how to use ultrasound during the injections which is very critical in ensuring a safe & accurate injection. May use xray with unnecessary radiation for injections instead of ultrasound.
PRP & Sonic wave (ESWT) not used to enhance the effects of Stem Cells.
May not offer option of different bone stem cell types. (only offer drilling bones or low quality umbilical stem cells.)
May use poorly trained non-physician assistants to evaluate & perform injections.
Not FDA compliant.
Treatments at Our Clinic :
Treating the root cause of the problem by regenerating and repairing the damaged regions. Good safety profile with body products from own body.
Precision ultrasound guided injection to joints without any radiation to ensure safe delivery of stem cells & PRP to the correct location. (Shown to increase positive results by 20-40% vs. without ultrasound)
Other modalities like PRP & Sonic Wave use to focus on the whole joint and treating different parts of it instead of just treating one out of several diseased structures in the joint.
Several types of stem cell including Adipose (fat), bone marrow and umbilical cord derived options available.
Needle Free Air-Jet Pain pre Injections option.

1. Amniotic Fluid Cell Therapy to Relieve Disc-Related Low Back Pain and Its Efficacy Comparison with Long-Acting Steroid Injection
There are a lot of problems associated with the treatment of patients with degenerated discs with or without disc prolapse, nerve compression, desiccation, or bulge. Most patients with low back pain belong to the geriatric population. Low back pain in this group of patients is associated with spondylosis, osteoporosis,
2. Amniotic fluid stem cells and their application in cell-based tissue regeneration
Advances in stem cell biotechnology hold great promise in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Of interest are marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), embryonic stem cells (ESCs), and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). In addition, amniotic fluid stem cells (AFSCs) have attracted attention as a viable choice following the search for an alternative stem cell source. Investigators are interested in these cells because they come from the amniotic fluid that is routinely discarded after birth. There have been multiple investigati
3. Human amniotic fluid stem cell injection therapy for urethral sphincter regeneration in an animal model

Review & Testimonials/Case Examples
“I am receiving treatment for severe osteoarthritis of right ankle.
I have previously consulted two surgeons and was a considered a candidate for ankle fusion with no cartilage left in my ankle. . My mobility problems was getting severe but ankle fusion was terrifying due to permanent lame condition that would result with a “successful” outcome to control pain.
I have been treated with PRP followed 6 weeks later by autologous stem cells from fatty tissue taken from my mid-riff, then PRP again after another 6 weeks.
5 months after the initial treatment I have improved greatly with regard to pain and functioning of my ankle. I used to walk with difficulty, for limited distances and use a cane. Now I only use a cane if I am going for a very long walk or a hike.”
Introduction About the Topic
The aim of osteopathic manipulation is to treat the individual as a whole, and just the symptoms. What this implies is that osteopathic physicians investigate the disease and its cause, and how it affects the body.
Most osteopathic-based treatments target the mechanical aspect of the body’s problems, and that includes those caused by joint and muscular dysfunction. Osteopathic manipulations target the connective tissue (fascia), ligaments, tendons, joints, and major muscle groups. Pain or other symptoms arise as a result of overuse of the muscle, poor posture or poor positioning during exercise, formation of scar tissue, pulls, tears, strains, and inflammation (which is the major cause of many ailments).
Targeted osteopathic manipulations
We adopt the following common forms of osteopathic manipulation:
- Active release techniques involving relieve of nerve trigger points and tight muscles, causing a great reduction in muscular pains and joint stress. Active release techniques aim to restore glide and mobility between nerves and muscular tissue. Osteopathic stimulation will also circulate the fluid round the body and stimulate the lymph system which reduces inflammation.
- Myofascial release
- Cranial-sacral manipulations – on the head and the skull.
- Counter-strain manipulations targeted at tender points produced by inaccurate neuromuscular reflexes
- High velocity-low amplitude – a form of thrust technique.
- Massage therapy, acupressure and other forms by which muscle energy is stimulated.
- Ligamentous release
- Lymphatic pump, involving the stimulation of the lymphatic system that flushes waste away from the tissue.
- Visceral techniques, involving the gentle application of pressure to the body’s visceral organs such as the intestines, kidneys, and the liver.
- Other treatments such as Neurokinetic therapy, dry needling, and the Graston technique.
Current Treatment at Other Clinics
Current treatment of knee involves using medications for pain, steroid injection, knee surgery and physical therapy which can temporary alleviate the pain. These treatments are considered a patch up of the problem without treating the root cause of the problem. Medications & steroids have many side effects including weight gain & increased blood sugar from st
Safe Non Surgical Option
We use a combination of newest cutting edge technology in regenerative medicine to stimulate body’s own repair ability to reverse aging and damage. We use a careful combination of Stem Cells, PRP and Sonic Waves (ESWT) as part of treatment plan designed by the doctor to treat the body. These are safe investigational treatments that have shown very promising & safe results in thousands of treatments over the 10-20 years in Europe and USA. They don’t involve using any medications or drugs.
What Does ESWT, PRP & Stem Cell Therapy Do?
The researchers believe that the therapy works by:
Releasing cytokines into the body to prevent further damage to cartilage and reduce pain and inflammation.
Preventing inflammation that can make osteoarthritis worse.
Creating healthy new cartilage tissues.
Many patients experience improvements in the treated area and other areas, like in a Mayo Clinic study where patients benefited in both knees after experiencing injections in only one.
Osteopathic manipulation for pain & Systemic Diseases
The good thing about osteopathic manipulation is that it is not an invasive procedure. It effectively treats patients with chronic and acute musculoskeletal pain such as pain in the neck, low back pain, headaches, tendonitis, knee pain, and osteoarthritis. Osteopathic manipulation helps in the treatment of respiratory and neurologic conditions such as migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, sinus disorders, and infections of the middle ear.
The musculoskeletal system is responsible for
At our facility, we have specialists that are well trained in osteopathic manipulation and manual medicine techniques like craniosacral, fascial-release, and muscle energy techniques.
What makes our facility special?
At our Los Angeles facility, we have invented modern approaches to orthopedic care. Our approach to treatment is second to none. The harvesting process does not involve any form of drilling, and the stem cells are purified and tested for quality before injection. We also employ ultrasound to help in the precise placement of high dose stem cells at the required site. These cells will then perform their duty, promoting the formation of new tissues. Please note that this process only occurs if the cells have been injected to the exact site. We are experts in this and has seen positive outcome with our treatments. Our licensed physicians have undergone intense training running into thousands of hours, and so, you can be sure that you are in safe hands.
