…that insurances will cover the initial consultation visit to discuss regnerative therapies?
The phrase “not covered by insurance” can be a scary thought when considering alternatives to surgery. Still considered “new” to the world of medicine, regenerative treatments are a non-covered service through insurance, leaving the cost to be the patient’s responsibility.
Although this may be a disheartening thought, the initial consultation can still qualify under a patient’s insurance. Scheduling a consultation with a StemCell ARTS physician allows for the chance to receive a full examination and diagnosis, while only being responsible for the copay, current deductible and/or co-insurance. Patients are able to leave the office with a full treatment plan and a breakdown of any potential cost and time commitments.
StemCell ARTS participates with most all insurances, and requires a referral based on specific insurances qualifications.

If you are living with persistent, recurring pain, you know the debilitating effect it can have on every aspect of your life – from physical difficulties to your job, your relationships, even your mental outlook.
Don’t give up hope. Prolotherapy offers a healing alternative that could help you get your life back. In contrast to treatments that offer only temporary benefits, this safe, proven technique may deliver lasting pain relief, frequently providing complete and permanent improvement.
Working in tandem with your body’s natural healing process
Prolotherapy promotes long term, often permanent pain relief by stimulating the body’s own ability to heal itself. A solution of concentrated sugar and local anesthetic (steroids are never used) is injected into the affected ligaments, tendons or joint capsules.
This solution causes irritation and slight inflammation of the tissues. Your body’s natural reaction is to begin repairing these tissues, encouraging growth of new ligament or tendon fibers.
Additional treatments encourage a gradual buildup of tissue to restore and strengthen the area. Depending on the severity and location of the damaged tissues, a number of treatments are scheduled every two to six weeks until the healing is complete and you can return to normal activities without pain.
Successfully resolving muscular and joint pain
Prolotherapy may effectively treat pain in the neck, back, shoulder, knee, hip, elbow, ankle, foot and some forms of chronic headache. Many conditions respond well to prolotherapy, such as back and neck arthritis, whiplash, joint dysfunctions, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, osteoarthritis, tennis elbow, sprains, plantar fascitis/heel spurs, chronic tendonitis and more.
Delivering safe, effective treatment with no down time
Performed in a medical office, prolotherapy relieves pain for many patients without the risks of surgery, without general anesthesia or hospital stays and without a long recovery period. In fact, most people return to their jobs or usual activities right after the procedure.
Initially, you may experience mild swelling and stiffness but these symptoms are only temporary. Some patients first see noticeable improvements after the sessions are completed and some time has passed. Others experience benefits right away with increasing improvement on each successive visit.
Returning you to an active, pain-free lifestyle
Prolotherapy provides an appealing opportunity for the treatment of pain. Research studies show that over 80 percent of people treated with Prolotherapy report a good or excellent result. Many of them are permanently cured. Not only do they enjoy simple pleasures again – a good night’s sleep, sitting through a movie, taking a walk – but most also return to physical activities such as soccer, mountain biking, jogging, skiing, even horseback riding.
