When it comes to medical treatments, what once sounded like science fiction is becoming the standard in life-changing medicine. Stem cells — the “master cells” inside our bodies from which all other cells are generated and formed — could potentially become the leading treatment option in the fight against pretty much everything that ails us.
Currently, stem cells have the potential to treat diseases and ailments of all types, from neck pain to spinal cord injuries. In recent years, stem cells have become an increasingly advantageous option for patients with spinal disorders. Where in the late ’90s and early 2000s, patients were primarily treated with open surgical procedures, minimally invasive surgery has become a viable option for certain patients struggling with low back and leg pain. Stem cells have proven to have the ability to alleviate pain and discomfort.
According to a studypublished in the World Journal of Stem Cells, scientific advances have enabled spinal surgeons to treat patients with stem cells to help in the regeneration of degenerated discs, healing spinal cord injuries and helping bone growth in spinal fusions.
Benefits of Stem Cell Treatments
Stem cell procedures, such as ours, are an outpatient and minimally invasive, taking roughly an hour from start to finish. We usually recommended such treatments for patients between the ages of 20 and 70 since the quantity and quality of your stem cells slowly decline as you age. The main benefits include:
- Minimally invasive;
- Fewer side effects compared to surgery;
- Natural approach using your own reservoir of cells;
- Little to no down time;
- Regenerative properties that promote healing and pain relief.
Stem Cells Heal Using Our Body’s Own Cells
Stem cells are regenerative and may help inrepairingand rebuildingdamaged tissue. Bone marrow stem cells can applied to help with the treatment ofosteoarthritis, joint pain, low back pain and other spinal conditions, as well as neck injuries, and more. When it comes to spinal cord injuries, stem cells have been proven to help degenerative disc disease, which is something that cannot be cured with surgical techniques.
Understanding and harnessing these unique cells may unlock breakthroughs in longevity and therapeutic solutions to all kinds of chronic diseases and regenerative opportunities.
