Medicinal Signaling Cells Therapy or “MSC”, is the most potent and advanced treatment in Regenerative Medicine and harnesses the regenerative power of the body to heal damaged, worn-out joints, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissue and is indicated for those with advanced degenerative disease such as bone-on-bone osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease or lingering chronic injuries. A signaling cell stimulates the body to build and repair tissues including skin, bone, muscle, cartilage, tendon, or ligaments. This cutting edge treatment plays a powerful role in the body’s growth and repair processes and is also sometimes referred to as a “Biologic” meaning it is derived from a biological specimen, as well as “Exosomes”, which are derived from Medical Signaling Cells.


Current research and clinical outcomes have shown MSC therapy aides in regrowing cartilage, healing meniscal tears, and other types of degenerative joint disease. Local tissue healing is diminished in chronic joint pain so the body needs a healing jump start.

And the most amazing part – because of the effective healing nature of these cells, Medical Signaling Cells Therapy often only requires a single treatment! For people dealing with chronic pain it is important to know that ending the cycle is possible, when you can get the body to regenerate itself, restore function and decrease pain – all with a non-surgical method.

The biggest buzz word in Regenerative Medicine is “stem cells,” so you may be wondering – what’s the difference between Medicinal Signaling Cells and Mesenchymal Stem Cells? After all – they’re both abbreviated MSC right?

Medicinal Signaling Therapy vs. Mesenchymal Stem Cells Therapy

Many people refer to non-autologous or donor-sourced cells as stem cells, but this is actually a misnomer. By the time the donor-derived cells reach the patient in office, the cells are no longer live stem cells but are acting as signaling cells and are very powerful stimulators for healing and therefore pain reduction in that they signal growth of new tissue and healing. “Stem Cells” are sourced directly from the patient themselves and contain live Mesenchymal Stem Cells by the time they are concentrated and ready to be reinjected into the patient. These cells, however, age with you and experience all the trauma, toxicity and stress that you do and are extracted via a surgical procedure as well as having a higher risk for tumor development, compared to donor-derived medicinal signaling cells.

Medicinal Signaling Cells have Several Benefits!

  1. Signal tissue regeneration
  2. Do not show signs of age like adult tissue
  3. Do not develop tumors
  4. There are no ethical issues
  5. These are NOT embryonic somatic cells

Medicinal Signaling Cells are undifferentiated cells and protein signaling compounds that signal a potent healing cascade to regenerate and heal tissues. They are the basic cells of regeneration, allowing your body to heal injuries like never before. Medicinal Signaling Cells avoid the invasive and timely procedure of harvesting from the patient and also avoid the issue of immune system activation. They contain growth factors that promote cellular proliferation and new collagen formation as well as proteins that suppress and modulate inflammation and pain. These cells and proteins signal a potent healing cascade to regenerate and heal tissues, hence the name medicinal signaling cells.

Medical Signaling Cells Therapy Can Prevent The Need For Surgery Or Drugs

It is likely you’ve seen a doctor or surgeon that has already diagnosed you or a loved one with Arthritis, Bone-on-Bone Joints, or Degenerative Joint Disease. These conditions are commonly treated with anti-inflammatory drugs, painkillers, and hyaluronic acid injections or visco-supplementation, and/or cortisone shots. While these treatments are sometimes beneficial, the results are limited—usually providing only temporary relief and rarely addressing the underlying cause of your pain. These treatments often result in continual wear and tear on the joints and may end in major surgeries, like total joint replacement or permanent disability and chronic pain, as the underlying injuries, degeneration and instability have not been addressed.

Joint replacement surgeries are one of the most expensive and time-consuming healthcare procedures. The majority of surgeons will advise you to hold off on surgery as long as possible or at least until the degeneration is so severe that surgery is warranted. As if there were no other option? Why wait so long to reverse the damage, when there are effective, non-invasive alternatives? Not to mention the long road to recovery thereafter! MSC Therapy is one of modern medicine’s most cutting-edge therapies and is an ideal solution for improving joint mobility, reducing joint pain, and preventing costly and painful surgeries.

Where Do Medicinal Signaling Cells Come From?

Medicinal Signaling Cells are sourced from donors who undergo rigorous screening and testing including behavioral risk assessment, review of blood test results, donor medical history and communicable disease testing as well as culturing and toxicity testing prior to lot release. The donor tissues used are recovered, processed, and distributed by accredited tissue banks and all tissues are recovered using an aseptic recovery technique during sterile cesarean section.
