Can Stem Cell Treatment Help Improve Spinal Conditions or Injuries?

Stem cell treatment is a type of regenerative medicine designed to repair stem cells by reducing inflammation and modulating the immune system. Stem cell treatment dates back to the 1950s. A French oncologist was the first person to perform a stem cell transplantation. He transplanted stem cells through bone marrow grafts to save six nuclear researchers exposed to radiation. 

Stem cell treatments are beneficial for many medical conditions. They have been used to treat orthopedic conditions and traumatic injuries among others. 

This form of regenerative medicine has paved the way for non-surgical treatment options for an array of conditions. Many conditions can impact the spine and make daily life difficult. Stem cell treatments can help improve spinal conditions or injuries.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis happens when the space inside the backbone is too small, which puts pressure on the spinal cord and nerves that travel through the spine. Stem cell treatment for spinal stenosis is performed through non-surgical injections. They are a minimally invasive way to manage spinal stenosis pain in conjunction with physical therapy. 

Spinal Arthritis

Spinal arthritis is inflammation of the facet joints of the spine or sacroiliac joints between the spine and pelvis. While spinal arthritis can occur anywhere in the spine, it is most common in the neck and lower back. The most common symptoms of spinal arthritis are pain and stiffness. There is a lot of promising research surrounding stem cell treatment for spinal arthritis. Like spinal stenosis, stem cell treatment can ease the pain caused by the condition. 

Compressed or Herniated Spinal Disk

A rubbery cushion called a disk sits between each vertebra of the spine. The bones of the vertebrae and the rubbery disk compose the entire spine. Each spinal disc has a soft, jelly-like center called the nucleus, encased in a rubbery exterior called the annulus. A compressed, or herniated disk occurs when there is a tear in the annulus and some of the nucleus pushes out. A compressed disk can appear within any part of the spine. Stem cell treatment for herniated discs is the most advanced non-surgical treatment option.
