Stem cell therapy has emerged as a promising new treatment option for back pain
Stem cell therapy has been used for decades to treat diseases and conditions such as leukemia, lymphoma, and some genetic disorders.
Stem cells can differentiate into various types of cells, including bone, cartilage, and muscle cells. This means that they can potentially repair damaged tissues in the back.
Stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting stem cells into the damaged area.
Stem cell therapy has a lower risk of complications compared to traditional back surgery and can reduce risk of complications after failed back surgery.
The MSCs used in stem cell treatment have the capacity to: Develop into the kind of cell needed to repair the disc. Self-renew once injected, so they keep working
Results after stem cell injections for lower back pain after 6 months was 60.7% and over 74% for patients with sciatic nerve injuries
Stem cell therapy is not appropriate for everyone with back pain and the Regeneration Center will need to review current MRI scans.
Stem Cell Therapy has shown potential in reducing inflammation, repairing damaged tissue, and promoting healing.
