Allograft therapy uses stem cells, which are the “building blocks” of your body, to help promote the growth of healthy new cells and tissues. Shannon Kibble, ARPN, CNP, and the team at Align Body & Wellness in Tulsa, Oklahoma, use allograft therapy to repair tissues that are too damaged to heal on their own. Stem cells can stimulate the formation of cartilage, tendon, ligaments, bone, and fibrous connective tissues.

Allograft therapy uses stem cells to promote healthy tissue growth. Stem cells are unique because they can change into any other kind of cell that your body might need to repair itself.
When you suffer an injury, your blood carries stem cells to the area to help repair the damage. The stem cells, along with growth factors and proteins, heal and regenerate the injured tissues; however, there aren't always enough stem cells available for optimal repair.
Allograft therapy is a way of getting a concentrated dose of stem cells to damaged tissues and increasing cell regeneration.
The substances used in allograft therapy come from healthy women undergoing cesarean sections who donate the amniotic fluid and placenta for allograft therapy. The stem cells, growth factors, collagen, and proteins in allograft therapy come from amniotic fluid and placental tissue.
Amniotic fluid stem cells don't show signs of aging. Furthermore, they divide more quickly and have a longer stability rate. Since these stem cells come from the fluid and tissues that surround the baby rather than the fetus itself, allograft therapy doesn't present any ethical issues.
Allograft therapy can assist in the treatment of many types of health problems, including joint pain and other kinds of musculoskeletal disorders. Because stem cells are able to transform into virtually any other type of cell, they can regenerate specific tissues, such as bone, cartilage, ligaments, and skin.
The new tissue replaces the damaged areas, reducing inflammation and pain and triggering a healing process that your body can't accomplish on its own.
Injuries and conditions commonly treated by regenerative therapy procedures include:
