CUTTING EDGE MEDICINE & TREATMENTS

Authors Note

Parts of this website are intended to inform and educate medical professionals and are not intended for patients. This website does not seek to make claims about the effectiveness of medical joint injections in medical treatment. Those conversations should happen between you and your doctor.

“One of the most promising new fields of science and medicine is the area of [omitted due to FDA regulations] and their use in [omitted due to FDA regulations]. These new technologies, most of which are in early stages of development, hold significant promise for transformative and potentially curative treatments for some of humanity’s most troubling and intractable maladies.” Statement from FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D. on the FDA’s new policy steps and enforcement efforts.

This site serves to inform medical professionals about cutting edge medicine, the newest research available from other websites such as https://bioinformant.com, and key in vitro, animal model, and clinical research studies that have been carried out to date across medical specialties and health conditions. Some medical joint injections are in the early and evolving stages, and clinical studies are still insufficient to determine effectiveness.

While all of the products that we use and train other clinics to use are produced in FDA inspected laboratories deemed to be compliant by the FDA, it is important to note that certain experimental procedures have not been approved by the FDA for treatment, safety, or effectiveness.

FDA.gov states:

“[Medical joint injections], like other medical products that are intended to treat, cure or prevent disease, generally require FDA approval before they can be marketed. FDA (sic) has not approved any [omitted] products for use, other than cord blood-derived hematopoietic progenitor cells [acellular nanotechnology] for certain indications.

Patients interested in [medical joint injections] in the U.S. are advised to consult a physician about the state of FDA approval for any given product and/or inquire about opportunities to participate in a clinical trial. Patients interested in [medical joint injections] outside the U.S. should investigate regulations in the specific country. It is important to be aware that regulations and clinical study requirements vary from country to country.”

It is important to understand that you may be exposed to literature and research designed for a medical professional. You will asked to seek your own understanding and to speak to a member of Bridge Integrative Medicine’s medical team before making a choice about any therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Mesenchymal Stem Cell Exosomes

The elephant in the room – we do not use babies or harm babies in ANY of the products that we use. The Acellular Nanotechnology we use is derived from donated placental tissues. The placental tissues leftover after pregnancy contain the youngest progenitor cells available and produce acellular nanotechnology that help baby heal and grow inside of the mother’s womb. These signaling factors stimulate cell growth, reduce inflammation, modulate the immune system, promote cell survival, etc. all to help the baby heal and grow. These cell signaling particles are isolated, concentrated, and purified to support your body through a degenerated or inflamed state and potentially rebuild lost tissue.

  • No clumping in your body
  • Stay in the area we put them in

  • Cross the “Blood-Brain Barrier”
  • Deliver miRNA and mRNA to cells
  • Can home in on areas of degeneration
  • Not perceived as foreign by the body

  • No first-pass lung removal as in MSC
  • Influence Growth Cells
  • Influence Phenotype
  • Contribute to Cell Fate Decision
  • Promote Regeneration
  • Immunomodulation

  • Anti-Inflammatory

  • Anti-Fibrotic

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP has been used by professional athletes to treat sports injuries and help heal wounds after surgery. PRP injections are used to treat torn tendons, tendinitis, muscle injuries, arthritis-related pain, and joint injuries. PRP injections can be used for cosmetic procedures including treatments for wrinkles on your face referred to as a “vampire facial”.

platelet rich plasma for stem cell therapy and regenerative medicePlatelet-Rich Plasma or PRP uses the body’s natural healing ability and condenses this into a single injection – typically 3 weeks worth of your body’s healing factors in one dose.

Wharton’s Jelly

Patients do not qualify for Wharton’s Jelly injection if they have a total joint replacement, active cancer or if there is suspected infection.

Wharton’s Jelly is the connective tissue of a human umbilical cord and can be concentrated, isolated, and purified. Remember: this is from donated placentas and umbilical cords and no babies are harmed in the process.

At Bridge Integrative Medicine we currently offer Wharton’s Jelly as a joint supplement for defects in cartilage due to degeneration or injury. Wharton’s Jelly products contain:

  • Collagen (a key building block for joints and connective tissue)

  • Growth factors
  • Messenger RNA
  • Amino Acids (the building blocks of proteins)
  • Carbohydrates (for metabolism)
  • Electrolytes and enzymes
  • Cytokines: the FOREMEN that tell all of the growth factors exactly where to go, what to do, and what to become

  • Cell signaling molecules
  • Protein Scaffolding: This allows the healing factors to accumulate and affect your body’s endogenous growth

  • Progenitor Particles

Patients do not qualify for Wharton’s Jelly injection if they have a total joint replacement, active cancer or if there is suspected infection.

Wharton’s Jelly products provide cushioning, structural support, and viscosity for the umbilical arteries and veins. Wharton’s Jelly products may be used for the same functions within a joint space.

Patient Reviews

Best decision ever! I had a pinched nerve in my neck and it was causing numbness in the tips of my fingers. Dr. Bruce got it straitened out. He and his staff are very kind and caring. If your looking for a chiropractor, look no further- you found the right place! I wouldn’t hesitate to see any of the Dr’s at Bridge Integrative Medicine. I will never go anywhere else.

My headaches have been under control since getting adjustments here. My regular doctor could not determine what was going on and prescribed me several different drugs, but my headaches wouldn’t go away. No they are much less frequent and less intense. This office is able to get me an appointment the same day I call, often times within just one hour of calling. They are so kind and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this place!

We always have a great experience at Chiropractic Life Center. My husband, my kids, and myself all get adjusted on a regular basis. We range in age from 8 to 50. The front office staff is very friendly and welcoming (They always remember our names!), and the doctors are interested in our lives outside of their offices. We wouldn’t go anywhere else! They are truly family doctors who enjoy what they do…and we can tell!
