There are several different causes of joint pain, and at ActiJoint, our goal is to help not only treat the pain but also the root cause to prevent further pain and damage. We are a non-surgical option for joint pain, and our providers can treat a range of orthopedic issues from sports injuries to osteoarthritis. ActiJoint offers the latest, cutting edge technology not only in our regenerative treatments such as stem cell and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) but we have also perfected the injection method under completely sterile conditions using ultrasound-guided technology to make sure every injection is 100% accurate.
The experts at our regenerative orthopedics clinic believe in taking a wider view when it comes to health and recovery. That is why we take the whole body into account when determining the correct course of treatment for any type of injury or group of ailments. For every patient, we follow an individualized process that will minimize recovery time and maximize results.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy has some of the most exciting treatment potential in medicine today. Stem cells are the body’s master cells. They are undifferentiated cells which allow them to develop into other types of cells that are required to repair or replace damaged tissue. Stem cells can stimulate the formation of cartilage, tendon, ligaments, bone and fibrous connective tissues. Stem cells have been clinically and scientifically proven to effectively treat most chronic pain conditions, accelerate the healing, and reduce scarring.
A high volume of stem cells is obtained from the patient’s own bone marrow or fat tissue (adipose). Once the stem cells have been concentrated, they are injected into damaged areas of the body to promote regeneration and healing. These therapies are a safe, nonsurgical treatment option for most chronic pain conditions, wound care, and aesthetic abnormalities.
Better Concentrations Deliver Better Results
Not all stem cell therapy procedures or concentrating processes are the same. APEX Biologix’s Stem Cell Concentration System offers the best processing technique to maximize patient outcomes. The APEX Biologix system creates a highly concentrated injectate of stem cells and growth factors.
With our system, we provide training videos, processing guides, and remote training if needed.
Harry Adelson, N.D.
Dr. Adelson has performed over 5,000 bone marrow and adipose stem cell procedures and has injected stem cells into over 500 intervertebral discs, placing him among those most experienced in the world with use of stem cells for the treatment of pain. His personal mission is to offer autologous stem cell therapies for the treatment of pain that are safe, effective, and affordable, to get people out of pain and back to living their lives.
Stem cells not only demonstrate their capacity to generate more stem cells but also help in making different cell types. For over a decade adult stem cells have been used therapeutically for treating certain cancers as well as rare blood diseases. Stem cell therapy has been acknowledged in medical history across the world as a big discovery in natural healing. The stem cells are first injected into the patient’s injured area. They then metamorphosize into different cells, which often depends upon the instructions provided by the human body. This allows the stem cells to become tissue cells, bone cells, or other kinds that are needed in that area. This ability to become whatever cells are necessary in the affected area is what medical practitioners believe is so unique about stem cell growth. A huge number of cells injected into the patient’s body will help in healing the injuries at an accelerated pace. The best results for stem cell therapy are seen in neuropathy, knee pain, and osteoarthritis.
Stem cell treatment takes advantage of the body’s ability to repair itself. With Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy, stem cells are injected from amniotic tissues into your body. Similar to cortisone and steroid shots, stem-cell injections have anti-inflammatory properties, but offer far more benefits than those of standard injection therapies, without the negative effects of steroids. While cortisone and other drugs only provide temporary pain relief, stem cells actually restore degenerated tissue while providing pain relief. The growth factors in Amniotic Stem Cells may replace damaged cells in your body. This helps to lubricate the joints and surrounding soft tissue, lubricating the joint while decreasing pain, inflammation and restoring mobility.
The Amniotic Stem Cells can turn into any type of tissue found in joints other than nerve tissue. Depending on the different tissues that are damaged, the stem cells can turn into whatever your joint needs which usually is a combination of cartilage, ligament, tendon, bone or muscle. This is a “curative” treatment. You can literally grow new joint tissue. Once your joint is healed, it is healed. The oldest research to date shows that 100% of recipients who benefited from stem cell therapy were still pain free 4 years later. Amniotic Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy allows us to treat and rehabilitate your condition and pain without drugs or surgery.

Most pain is acute pain, the result of injury or illness, and is gone in 6-8 weeks with rest and medication. Chronic pain is different. It affects the whole person, disrupting their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being.
A spiral occurs in which pain leads to inactivity, which causes muscle weakness, weight gain, and feelings of helplessness. Too many patients are told there is nothing that can be done about the pain. Using precision diagnostic techniques, we can often find the source of pain. Once the cause of the problem is known, a treatment is close at hand.
We believe that patients in pain deserve to be given an accurate diagnosis and treatment based on scientific evidence delivered by people who really care.
Non-invasive medical procedures are the mainstay of our practice. Using the most up to date techniques, our team treats patients as whole people. We provide a comprehensive assessment in order to design a customized strategy for pain relief for our patients in Layton, Utah. Stem cell research has advanced to a point that, it’s changing the quality of life for patients all over the globe.
Until recently, treatment options for people with degenerative conditions were limited. Not many years ago, steroid injections, prescription medications, and joint replacement surgeries were often the only treatment options offered to patients. You can receive stem cell injections that research shows that stem cell treatment is beneficial for osteoarthritis, neuropathy, chronic pain, disc bulge and herniation, spinal stenosis, joint pain, and symptoms of autoimmune disorders, fibromyalgia, neurodegenerative diseases, and COPD. Stem cell injections work with the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Unlike treatments that simply address the symptoms, stem cell therapy actually promotes repair of the body, restoring degenerated tissue.
