Stem cell therapy for degenerative disc disease
A simple, non-invasive injection to reverse the degenerative process, and regenerate the disc back to its healthy state.
Degeneration of the intervertebral disc, often called "degenerative disc disease" (DDD) of the spine, is a condition that can be painful and can greatly affect the quality of one's life. While disc degeneration is a normal part of aging and for most people is not a problem, for certain individuals a degenerated disc can cause severe constant chronic pain.
Chronic low back pain due to degenerative disc disease affects an estimated 8 million people in worldwide alone. While short-term benefits may be obtained by bed rest, analgesics, physiotherapy, and steroids, many patients progress to unremitting, severe and debilitating pain due to ongoing progression of disc degeneration. For these patients, the only option is major back surgery involving artificial disc replacement or spinal fusion.
With symptomatic degenerative disc disease, chronic low back pain sometimes radiates to the hips, or there is pain in the buttocks or thighs while walking; sporadic tingling or weakness through the knees may also be evident. Similar pain may be felt or may increase while sitting, bending, lifting, and twisting. Chronic neck pain can also be caused in the upper spine, with pain radiating to the shoulders, arms and hands. Neck pain may cause interrupted blood supply to the brain resulting in headaches, vertigo and worsened cognitive abilities and memory. Stem cell treatment for degenerative disc disease has the ability not only to correct the problem but also alleviate the associated pain.
After an injury, some discs become painful because of inflammation. Some people have nerve endings that penetrate more deeply into the annulus fibrosis (outer layer of the disc) than others, making discs more susceptible to becoming a source of pain. The scientific community has the opinion that the healing process involved in the repair of trauma to the outer annulus results in the innervation of the resultant scar tissue, and subsequent pain in the disc, as these nerves become inflamed by nucleus pulposus material. Degenerative disc disease can lead to a chronic debilitating condition and can have a serious negative impact on a person's quality of life. When pain from degenerative disc disease is severe, traditional nonoperative treatment is often ineffective.
Stem cell therapy for degenerative disc disease is a novel therapeutic approach to reverse disc degeneration and address the number one cause of chronic low back pain.
Stem Cell therapy for degenerative disc disease is characterized with safety, simpleness and effectiveness. Above all, there are no side effects with Stem Cell Treatment or harm to body.
