About Stem Cells for Back Injury

Until now, chronic back pain was a life sentence for many, many sufferers. Many others opted for the only imperfect solution available: risky and invasive surgery. But there is a new option for those who unfortunately bear the burden of a back injury. Recent innovations in stem cell therapy show that they are an effective treatment for the damaged discs and swollen tissues at the root of your back pain.      

What Are Stem Cells?

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that are responsible for much of human growth and development. They have the unique ability to replicate an unlimited number of times. They can also evolve to serve any number of specialized functions throughout the body because stem cells can become any kind of human cell. Stem cells may also emit various soluble factors that can alter the tissue microenvironment.[1] These soluble factors include cytokines. Cytokines control joint inflammation and growth factors that stimulate cartilage repair. 

Embryonic and Adult Stem Cells 

It is important to distinguish among the various types of stem cells. The two main types of stem cells are embryonic and adult. Dr. Haasis shall harvest your stem cells ethically, meaning he is solely concerned with your own adult stem cells. He will often acquire the stem cells from adipose fat tissue beneath the skin, usually at the love handles. Many people take issue with using embryonic stem cells for adult healing. Dr. Haais vows to perform the procedure in accordance with only the highest ethical standards.  

Benefits

Stem cell therapy is an effective treatment for a range of back injuries, detailed below. 

Herniated Disc

Disc injury is one of the most common causes of lower back pain. Disc injury occurs when the circular support pads that cushion the vertebrae of the spinal column protrude from the outer membrane.[2] The slipped disc can crush the spinal nerve, causing numbness and chronic pain.  

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a condition in which degenerative damage occurs to the many facet joints along the spine. Facet joints compose the multiple flexible levels between the vertebrae. Osteoarthritis will arise when the facet joints fail to protect against grinding between the vertebrae. The condition can crop up with age, when the facet joints tend to lose structural cartilage and vital lubricating fluid.  

Age-Related Conditions

The spine and vertebrae may simply deteriorate with age. The vertebral discs are the “shock absorbers” for your body, cushioning the impact of every step you take for your entire life. The constant wear can begin to add up, leading to osteoarthritis or herniated discs. 

Sacroiliac Joint Pain

The sacroiliac (SI) joint is your base of support. It is located above the tailbone, on either side of the spine where the pelvis meets the sacrum. Too much or too little movement in this foundational area may cause sacroiliac joint pain.  

Candidates

Ideal candidates for stem cell therapy suffer from chronic back pain. Age or injury has damaged the delicate, interlocking clockwork of the spine and chronic pain results. Candidates seek answers outside of conventional approaches which insist that a lifetime of pain or risky surgery are the only answers.

Procedure

Stem cell therapy is a safe and simple procedure, especially when stacked up against the risks of “going under the knife” in spinal surgery. The therapy begins when Dr. Haasis or one of his assisting medical professionals harvests your adult cells from your subcutaneous fat tissue.

Usually, Dr. Haasis harvests at the love handles, where there is often enough tissue to spare.[3]   

While you are under a local anesthetic, Dr. Haasis will inject the stem cells directly into the damaged disc. He may mix your stem cells with PRP, a platelet rich plasma serum derived from your blood to help repair damaged cartilage and stimulate healing.

Recovery & Results

You can look forward to a safe and speedy recovery following your stem cell therapy. Many patients just require a few days of rest. The full flowering of your results, however, takes several months. As your body heals, the stem cells integrate within their new location to rehabilitate the injury.[4]

FAQ

How many stem cell treatments are necessary to ease back pain?

Often, one injection session is all it takes to ease chronic back pain. Sessions typically consist of just one or two injections at the problem area. 

What is the success rate of stem cell therapy?

The grateful recipients of stem cell therapy across the United States frequently report on the positive effects the treatment has had on their lives. Patient surveys reveal an 80 to 90 percent efficacy for stem cell therapy.[5] These are encouraging results for this exciting new field of human healing. 

Is stem cell therapy safe?

Stem cell therapy is a safe alternative to back surgery. Because it employs your body’s own stem cells in the healing serum, it minimizes the risk of an unwanted reaction. The most common side effects are temporary swelling and pain.   

Can stem cells help nerve damage?

The future of stem cell therapy is quite literally limitless. Some studies reveal that stem cells secrete various neurotrophic factors, including brain-derived neurotrophic factor, that can promote the repair of peripheral nerve cells.
