Method of treatment of chronic pain in the spine, based on the use of stem cells
ready to use.
The method gives flexibility to the spine and plays the role of shock absorber. It is the damage to these discs that are the most common cause of pain in the spine, from which millions of people suffer. According to this technique, adult stem cells (mesenchymal stem cells – MSC) are used for the regeneration of intervertebral discs. These cells are capable of differentiation into various types of cells, including cells of cartilage, bone and muscle tissue.
Since stem cells will be obtained from the patient’s own cells, can not be afraid of the immune rejection reaction, the danger of which always exists when transplanting the donor material. The stem cell-based material will be injected into the patient. Such stem cells treatment will allow the patient to return home on the day of the procedure. The injected stem cells will continue to differentiate into cells of the desired tissue, which will eliminate the cause of the disease and the associated pains in the spine.
Currently, pain in the lower spine is treated with pain medication, physiotherapy and surgery. In some cases, to remove pain, the intervertebral disks must be removed, as a result of which several vertebrae merge and mobility in this part of the spine is lost.
But all these methods do not affect the causes of the disease, so the success of treatment can not be complete.
Stem cells therapy is now the only hope for a truly complete cure of diseases associated with the destruction of intervertebral disc tissue
