Stem Cell Therapy in Tucson

At Life Aligned Wellness Center, we provide safe, effective, regenerative stem cell therapies. This natural solution activates your innate, self-healing mechanisms to facilitate the repair and regeneration of damaged cells and tissues. Stem cell therapy is widely known as a safe, nonsurgical option, with a history of beneficial results. There are virtually no “down sides” to worry about. This NEW type of stem cell therapy has been applied successfully for more than 8 years, with 100’s of 1000’s of patients.

Why Umbilical Cord Stem Cells?

When it comes to stem cells, not all are created equal. We utilize those derived from donated umbilical cord tissue. The stem cells from umbilical cord tissue have three essential properties:

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Modulate the immune system
  • Secrete factors that regenerate tissue

Since umbilical cord stem cells aren’t as mature as other cells, they’re often considered to be the most potent type of cell since they produce more of the bio-chemicals necessary to create new tissue generation.

A significant number of cells called mesenchymal stem cells are contained in umbilical cord tissue/blood. (In essence, the more the better.) These special cells produce unique chemicals that signal self-healing and regeneration. They are multipotent, which means that they can create regeneration in any type of cell in the body. The mesenchymal stem cells signal to your body to activate healing and regeneration.

How It Works

When you have stem cell therapy with umbilical cord stem cells, you are receiving a boost of fresh, young stem cells. Our own stem cells age, become less effective, and we lose many over time. It’s one of the reasons that as you age, you can’t recover as quickly as you used to in your younger years. When you receive the umbilical cord stem cells, your body’s self-healing mechanisms are re-activated and re-invigorated.

Conditions Stem Cell Therapy May Help

There is an array of conditions that may respond well to stem cell therapy:

  • Achilles tendon problems
  • Ankle pain, foot pain and plantar fasciitis
  • Arthritis and osteoarthritis
  • Chronic back pain
  • Chronic neck pain
  • Disc degeneration
  • Elbow, wrist or hand pain
  • Knee injuries (meniscus, MCL, ACL, PCL, and LCL sprains or partial tears)
  • Hip pain or labral tears
  • Lower back pain, disc injuries and disc degeneration
  • Shoulder damage (rotator cuff, tendonitis and arthritis)


Umbilical cord stem cells come from the umbilical cord tissue of healthy newborn babies. The tissue is donated by mothers who have been pre-screened and pre-tested and have healthy, full-term babies. We abide by stringent FDA and medical guidelines.



How long will it take to see results?

Because each condition and patient are unique, there is no guarantee of how quickly you will achieve results. While most patients report results within a few days, it may take 2 to 6 months.

Are there any side effects I should be aware of?

There have not been any reports of long-term adverse side effects. The side effects of umbilical cord-derived stem cell therapies are rare and may include infection, minor bleeding at the treatment site and localized pain. These side effects typically last no more than a day.

Do umbilical cord stem cells cause cancer or cause cancer to grow?

No. Many studies have been done to demonstrate the long-term safety of umbilical cord stem cells. According to the studies, not only do stem cells not multiply or grow cancer, but they are classified as anti-tumorogenic.

Is there an age limit for patients considering stem cell therapy?

No, patients of all ages could benefit from this therapy.

Do you use my own stem cells?

No. Life Aligned Wellness Center uses human umbilical cord stem cells, which are considered by many to be the most advanced stem cell product available. We do have other regenerative products available and will discuss with you all of your options before any decision is made.

Will I have to miss work or activities?

For most patients, no downtime is necessary. If your job requires you to perform activities that could damage the tissue that was treated, you may need to avoid those activities. If you participate in a sport or activity that can cause trauma to the tissue being treated, we will ask you to refrain from that activity for 4-6 weeks.

How often will I need treatment?

It depends on the area and condition being treated. For many degenerative joint conditions and soft tissue tears, we likely will just need to treat once in a patient’s lifetime, as long as no new injury traumatizes the joint following treatment.

How much does it cost?

Because treatments are condition-specific and patient-specific, the cost of treatment will vary from person to person. The cost is also determined by the number of stem cells used. We will provide you the expected fees upfront.

Does my insurance cover stem cell therapy?

No insurances cover stem cell therapy as the therapy is not yet FDA approved. However, there are other regenerative products that are now being covered by insurance. During your consultation we will discuss all of your options and the associated costs.

Will I require chiropractic and/or physical rehab afterward?

To help ensure that your treatment is successful, we will give you a highly detailed booklet after your procedure. Mobility is a critical part of your recovery. We will make appropriate recommendations for you to enhance your overall results. We typically do recommend you get some assistance from a chiropractor and/or physical therapist.
