Description:

If you have chronic back pain, it is important to be aware of all your treatment options before considering surgery. A new technique to heal structures of the back uses a component of the patient's body: stem cells. Stem cells are the blank slate of cells They can become other cells in the body. The Stem cell treatment orthopedic injuries treat back pain and other chronic pain conditions using cells that are called mesenchymal, and they can become bone, cartilage or fat cells depending on the environment they are put in. Adult cells are used, which differ from embryonic cells that can become any other type of cell. Taking the cells from an adult eliminates the controversy surrounding embryonic stem cell research from this form of treatment.

New Advance in Back Pain Treatment Stem Cell
Therapy
  • If you have chronic back pain, it is important to
    be aware of all your treatment options before
    considering surgery. A new technique to heal
    structures of the back uses a component of the
    patient's body stem cells.
  • Stem cells are the blank slate of cells
  • They can become other cells in the body. The Stem
    cell treatment orthopedic injuries treat back
    pain and other chronic pain conditions using
    cells that are called mesenchymal, and they can
    become bone, cartilage or fat cells depending on
    the environment they are put in. Adult cells are
    used, which differ from embryonic cells that can
    become any other type of cell.

  • Taking the cells from an adult eliminates the
    controversy surrounding embryonic stem cell
    research from this form of treatment.
  • Stem cells may be able to treat a range of
    conditions due to their versatility, including
    degenerative disc disease, vertebral fracture,
    and ligament damage and facet joint syndrome.
    Research is underway to determine the efficacy of
    this new therapy in treating various types of
    back pain causes.
  • The Procedure
  • Mesenchymal cells are taken from bone marrow,
    usually from the patient's hip. This may be
    painful depending on the technique used. After
    the cells have been isolated from the marrow,
    they are generally combined with platelets from
    your blood which contain growth factors.

  • To make the procedure a fast one, many
    practitioners combine the cell and platelet
    mixture with platelet-rich plasma or another
    substance to encourage the speedy reproduction of
    stem cells. The cells and their growth factors
    are then injected into the area of the body that
    needs repair.
  • If injected in a joint, cartilage will form if
    in a disc, new disc material will grow if in
    bone, new bone will form.
  • Stem cells in the Stem cell treatment orthopedic
    injuries have also been used to perform spinal
    fusion surgery, in which case a damaged disc is
    removed and the cell mixture is placed between
    two vertebrae to grow into bone and fuse them.
    Unlike the injection procedure, this is an
    invasive surgical procedure. Trials are underway
    to test stem cells' ability to regrow damaged
    discs.

  • Currently, this therapy is new and not the most
    accessible treatment. It is only offered to those
    participating in clinical trials or by a couple
    of companies.
  • We are striving to shift the emphasis from
    disease-driven medicine to an optimal health
    medical practice. We treat each of our patients
    individually and safely recommend a program
    according to their specific situations.
