Spinal Stem Cell Therapy

How can stem cells help your spine?

As with every other area in our body, aging or persistent stressors may cause degeneration in tissues, including joints. We have very small joints in our spine known as facet joints. Degeneration commonly causes inflammation and pain which may start located at a certain area and may progress and irradiate to other places due to various reasons. Our spine composes of regions such as cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacrum. Degeneration or inflammation may occur at any site or junction.

This type of pain is commonly generated by poor hygiene of the spine where bad postural positions deteriorate the normal anatomy, as well as excessive weight lifting without adequate protection of the spine, car accidents, falls or direct trauma to the spine. The 60-90% of people will have low back pain throughout their lives. It is the most frequent cause of disability in people under 45 years of age.

Symptoms:

  • Tingling or burning sensation
  • Feeling of dull pain or sharp pain
  • Intense pain.
  • Electric shock pain
  • Pain that radiates to other areas, such as the legs, hips, or lower part of the foot.
  • Muscle spasms.

There are reasons for back pain, including:

  • Muscle spasm
  • Muscle tear
  • Herniated disc
  • Disc degeneration
  • Spinal stenosis.
  • Spondylosis (Osteoarthritis of the lumbar or cervical spine)
  • Scoliosis
  • Spondylarthrosis (Faceted Disease)
  • Vertebra fracture

Stem cells help people recover from spine symptoms because in early stages, patients resources rely on pain medication or injections to control the pain and symptoms, without providing changes or solutions to the underlying cause of the condition. Regenerative medicine offers a new conservative and therapeutic option that reduces local inflammation and pain, while also promoting and secreting factors that contribute to the healing properties of the body. It has been found that direct injections to discs may increase the volume and height of your discs and reducing or even disappearing common symptoms in early stage patients. It has been observed even the decline in the progression of the disease called osteoarthritis, as well as the formation of new collagen to avoid rubbing between joints, reducing the pain that this causes.

Spine application sites include:

  • Facets
  • Interspinous ligaments
  • Intradiscal
