AmnIotic Cell Therapy

What is Amniotic Cell Therapy?

Amniotic Cell Therapy uses amniotic-fluid concentrate to help the body heal itself. Amniotic fluid is the fluid surrounding a fetus in pregnancy.  During most pregnancies, this fluid is thrown away after birth.  Now, however, consenting mothers of cesarian section babies can donate this fluid because of its amazing regenerative process.  It is important to note–these cells come from the amniotic sac and are not part of the embryo. 

How does Amniotic Cell Therapy work?

Amniotic injections contain abundant substances that promote healthy tissue regeneration. These components include cytokines, growth factors, fibrinogen, collagen, hyaluronic acid and messenger RNA.

Generally speaking, amniotic injections can be described as consisting of a multi-potent tissue matrix. As such, they function to fill, cover, and protect a defect or void.

When amniotic cells are injected into the body, the fluid contains the growth factors that help to stimulate tissue growth, cell activity and naturally reduce inflammation.

What do we offer?

At IntegraVita Wellness, we utilize cells that have been derived from donated amniotic fluid, then cryopreserved for localized injection. These cells function as an orthobiologic healing solution that contains a variety of valuable cells such as extracellular matrix, (ECM), viable cellular materials (mesenchymal stromal cells), growth factors, cytokines and hyaluronic acid. Amniotic cells have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, epithelialization and anti-fibrotic properties.

Amniotic fluid cells are derived from tissues donated by living, healthy women after full term pregnancy and a scheduled C-section. Donors are between the ages of 18 and 45, who are thoroughly screened for communicable diseases. A careful medical and social history is collected in advance to ensure that mothers meet all eligibility requirements.

All tissues are then tested to ensure viability and safety. Once tested, these tissues are processed to the highest standards in a state-of-the-art American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) accredited facility, and allografts are subjected to stringent USP testing prior to release. They are aseptically processed and lot release tested before use. We are committed to the safety and quality of our products.

What Conditions do Amniotic Injections help?

Amniotic injections can help with wound care, controlling pain, and orthopedic uses like facilitating repair of tendons, fasciae, capsules, and ligaments. They can help chronic tendinopathies, synovial surfaces, tendonitis, and chronic fasciosis.

To break it down still further, amniotic injections can help patients deal with issues like ACL and MCL tears, biceps and triceps tendonitis, tendinosis, epicondylitis, knee scopes, rotator cuff surgery, facet osteoarthritis, foot and ankle arthroplasty, acromioclavicular joint inflammation, ACL revisions, herniated discs, AVN of the hip and other problems with the knees and hips, plantar fasciitis, post-operative pain resulting from orthopedic and spinal surgery, and the need for tendon and cartilage repair.


1. In sixty-eight cases in which amniotic-fluid concentrate has been employed in the treatment of various pathological conditions of joints, the use of the fluid concentrate has not been attended by a single unfavorable reaction.

2. Its action is probably both biological and mechanical.

3. It speeds up a defense-repair mechanism within the joints.

4. The results obtained have been impressive in intra-articular fractures, and encouraging in selected cases of atrophic arthritis, as well as in persistent joint effusions.

5. It successfully prevents the formation of new adhesions after closed manipulation of joints.

6. It is a valuable prophylactic after arthrotomy of any type.

7. It’s used both in soft tissues and in other serous cavities is suggested.
