Stem Cells For Disc Regeneration
The field of spinal cord injury and back pain has seen a new advancement in treatment. Currently, a number of doctors still rely on surgery and supportive care to treat these ailments. But, thanks to researchers exploring the use of mesenchymal stem cells for repairing damaged tissue, it is changing how disc degeneration and back pain is treated.
New mesenchymal stem cell treatments involve intravenous and direct administration into the disc. The stem cells not only appear to be repairing the disc, but they also appear to be exerting an anti-inflammatory effect that is relieving pain and reversing disc degeneration.
