Stem Cell Therapy

Does your knee hurt? Or maybe your elbow or shoulder? What about your hip?

Maybe you never fully recovered from an old injury. Or maybe time has simply taken its toll and your joint has degenerated. Perhaps you injured it recently.

Surgery can be an option, but many people don’t want to be immobilized for weeks–while paying large deductibles and copays–just for an uncertain outcome. It’s a big deal to have any surgery, especially joint surgery or joint replacement! And other traditional treatment options might only mask the pain while not addressing the root cause of the problem.

Evidence suggests that regenerative medicine can help you! There are scores of people who have experienced healing and recovery by utilizing these same treatments.

At Nourish House Calls, we offer a number of regenerative options, including stem cell injection therapy (using either Wharton’s Jelly or purified amniotic fluid), PRP injections, and ozone injections and infusions. During your initial consultation, we can determine whether you are a good candidate and which option may be right for you.

Stem Cell Therapy and PRP Treatment

Stem cell therapy through Wharton’s Jelly injections introduces young and healthy stem cells into damaged tissues. This provides cushioning for your joint and controls inflammation, while triggering a powerful healing response over time. The injected cells can transform into specialized cells (based on where they are injected), promoting tissue repair and modulating inflammation.

Stem cell therapy using injections of purified amniotic fluid can provide your body with anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating properties. Similar to the Wharton’s Jelly, amniotic fluid injections provide relief while they heal tissues.

On the other hand, PRP injections utilize concentrated platelets from your own blood. These platelets contain growth factors and other beneficial components that stimulate your body’s natural healing mechanisms. Like many clinicians, Nourish House Calls uses PRP primarily as a complement to stem cell therapy. This is because evidence suggests that using PRP treatment alongside stem cell therapy can improve patient outcomes, even beyond what the Wharton’s Jelly and amniotic fluid provide on their own. But we also offer PRP injections to patients as a standalone treatment.

How to Get Started

Book a Discovery Call

During a free, 15-minute call, we will provide in-depth information about stem cell therapy and PRP treatment and answer any questions you may have.

Schedule an Initial Consultation

This can be booked during the discovery call or separately through this link. Our experienced practitioners will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. The consultation fee is $100, which will be applied to the cost of any stem cell therapy or PRP treatment you receive.

Schedule Your Treatment

With very limited exceptions, we can schedule your treatment date during or after your initial consultation.


While everyone is different, we typically expect you to start to see benefits as early as 6-12 weeks after your injection. The injections continue to work for 6-12 months, regenerating the damaged tissue. So, while steroid injections offer more immediate symptom relief but no tissue healing, these regenerative treatments offer more delayed pain relief, but actually work to solve the root cause(s) of your pain and physical limitations.

The Wharton’s Jelly and amniotic fluid products come from healthy, carefully screened mothers who have delivered their babies via c-section and have chosen to donate their amniotic fluid and/or umbilical cord. At the lab, the fluid and tissues are carefully screened again, processed, and cryopreserved.

Typically, only one stem cell therapy injection is needed in a joint. You should not have need for further stem cell therapy injections in that area, unless that tissue is injured or damaged again. Sometimes as part of the treatment regimen on one joint, PRP injection(s) may be recommended before or after the Wharton’s Jelly or amniotic fluid injections.

Your stem cells are old and tired–sorry, but they are! In a newborn’s circulation, 1 in every 10,000 cells are stem cells (think about how fast a scratch on a baby’s face heals–this is why). Then by your teens, it’s down to 1 in 100,000. Even if you are in your 30s, only 1 in every 250,000 circulating cells are stem cells. In your 50s, it decreases to 1 in 400,000, and by your 60s, it’s all the way down to 1 in 2,000,000! Using donated tissue is the best way to give you the healthy, abundant stem cells that make this therapy so effective.

Generally, you’ll have better results if you eat a healthy diet before and after injections. Avoiding foods and drinks that cause inflammation (sugar, alcohol, seed oils, and processed foods, for example) is a good idea for all of us, but it’s even more important to do a good job of this for at least a few weeks before and a few weeks after your injections. Activity restrictions are mild–don’t do anything that makes the area of injection more painful. Listen to your body (something I tell my patients anyway, all the time). Don’t plan on strenuous activity for 30 days after injections. For example, after knee injections, I would hold off running, squatting, and lunging for 30 days. Walking and mild-to-moderate activities are encouraged! You should also avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications, ideally for 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your injections.

Insurance does not cover this type of injection. Nourish collects payment directly from the patient, in all sorts of convenient forms (cash, check, credit card, Venmo, and Zelle), when your injection products are ordered.
