Stem Cell Therapy

What is Adult Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cells are cells that are located within the body that have not yet transformed to perform a certain function. Stem cells are the body’s natural healers. Unlike other cells, they have the unique ability to transform into the other types of cells the body need for repairing damage joints in the back. As we age, the number of stem cells and their potency decline.

With stem cell therapy for back pain, we revitalize a patient’s stem cells and inject a concentrated dosage of them and PRP directly to the damaged area of the spine.

 

Reasons for the procedure

Once injected, the stem cells will begin restoring and rebuilding the diseased discs in the spine. The PRP, which contains a tremendous amount of growth factors, will stimulate the stem cells to maximize their effectiveness. The entire procedure only takes a few hours to complete, and patients will be able to leave the clinic and go back home immediately.

For most patients, a single stem cell injection is all that is needed to eliminate their back pain, and the pain relief can last for the rest of their life. For patients with a severe degenerative disease, additional stem cell injections may be needed.
