Stem Cell Treatment For Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative Disc Disease is a term used to describe a spinal disc problem, usually associated with aging or degeneration of the disc from use.

A spinal disc is what separates each of your 33 spinal vertebrae.  Your discs not only act as shock absorbers but, along with your spinal facet joints, allow your body freedom of movement.

Depending on the type of damage to the disc, the condition may be described as degenerative disc disease, a herniated disc, slipped disc or bulging disc.

For many people, chronic back pain is often a result of nerve inflammation caused by an injured vertebral disc or injured facet joint in the spine.

Common treatments are very invasive with examples being; disc discectomies (cutting into the disc), spinal fusions, opioids and spinal cord stimulators.

Stem Cell Therapy for treating degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, slipped discs or bulging discs offers a non-invasive treatment alternative.

Is Stem Cell Therapy For Back Pain A Successful Treatment Option?

For many people suffering with back pain, this is their #1 question.

Stem Cell Therapy for degenerative disc disease is considered a non-invasive treatment using your own stem cells to promote healing and regeneration of spinal discs, damaged facet joints or damaged SI joints.

Finding the treatment that works best for you requires a highly experienced team of physicians who have years of experience treating back pain conditions.

Most conditions, if treated with stem cell therapy, will respond best when combined with a specialized post-treatment therapy program.

Stem Cells Aim To Repair Your Spinal Disc

Current research suggests that the primary cause of back pain is caused by disc and nerve inflammation.  Because stem cell therapy is a non-invasive treatment that addresses the source of pain, it has the potential for a long term successful outcome.

When a disc’s outer portion tears, this causes its nucleus pulposus, the jelly-like inner substance to leak. This leaked substance causes inflammation in the disc and spinal leg nerves, resulting in low back and leg pain.  This is true for neck pain as well, if a cervical (neck) disc is damaged.

Stem cell treatment aims to promote the regeneration, (or self repair) of spinal discs, reduce or eliminate painful nerve inflammation and prevent further damage from scar tissue.

The Hazards Of Invasive Spinal Disc Treatments

The risks associated with disc surgical discectomies or spinal fusion surgery are numerous.

Each joint and each disc in your spine has a job.  When that job is taken away, other joints and discs have to “take up the slack”.

Though many patients are often directed towards spinal fusion surgery this often results in damage to adjacent discs and joints, causing further problems down the road.

Any treatment that doesn’t address the source of pain by promoting self-healing, does not usually provide long term relief.

Your spine is arguably one of your body’s most complicated structures. There are many contributing factors to spine health such as activities, diet, weight and structural weaknesses.

In order to optimize the healing properties of stem cell treatments, we offer specialized post-treatment therapy and life-style coaching.

Stem Cell Treatments for Spinal Cord Injuries

Ultimate Medical Group does not perform stem cell treatments on patients with spinal cord injuries.

Injury to the spinal cord causes damage to the nerve cells that transmit information between the brain and the rest of the body.  The medical research vision is that stem cells could restore some nerve function by replacing missing or faulty cells, or prevent further damage caused by scarring.

At this time any patient with a spinal cord injury should only investigate the availability of clinical trials at major research facilities or hospitals.
