Recent advances in stem cell therapy have made it possible for stem cells to improve intervertebral discs’ health and quality. Are Stem cells capable of regenerating spinal discs?

StemLife Clinic offers stem cell rejuvenation therapy for the intervertebral disc as a complementary treatment that can improve intervertebral discs’ health and quality.

Intervertebral Degenerative Disc Disease

As you age, your spinal discs age too. As the cushions between the vertebrae wear away, the vertebrae rub together, causing pain and sometimes numbness in the limbs. This condition is called Degenerative Disc Disease. It generally happens in older adults, but the process can start as early as thirty years old.

The spinal discs are composed of two parts. The fibrous outer layer covers the nerves. The inner tough layer is a gelatinous core called the nucleus pulposus which contains protein.

When these sponges, like discs, tear or leak fluid, it is painful and can become debilitating. Injury is usually a process that takes years to appear, often twenty to thirty years. Unfortunately, the discs are not able to repair themselves.

As the spine becomes less stable, soreness and swelling create pain in the lower back. The pain worsens when you sit, twist, bend, or lift objects but is often relieved by movement such as running, walking, or lying down. Chronic pain is like a nagging toothache for some, but for others, it is so severe that it stops them from doing their activities of daily life.

At its worst, the pain radiates down the arms and legs and can cause tingling and numbness in the limbs. Currently, Intervertebral Degenerative Disc Disease is treated with a pain management regimen, hyaluronic acid injections, ozone therapy, or surgical interventions.

How Stem Cell Therapy Can Help

At StemLife Clinic, we use Mesenchymal stem cells from umbilical cord (Wharton’s Jelly) which are strictly screened and have met our stringent criteria. Once the cells are harvested, they undergo an isolation and expansion process. The expanded cells are analyzed microbiologically and PCRed. Once the analytics are complete, the cells are ready for transplant according to your doctor’s chosen method.

Stem Cells used to treat intervertebral discs do not cure the condition. They are meant to complement your existing treatment regimen and improve the outcome.

The stem cells become a repair cell system to help the disc regenerate itself. These stem cells are able to renew themselves as they help your intervertebral discs regenerate and control the inflammatory process. Back pain decreases as the cells reduce the inflammation in the disc(s). Stem cells that regenerate intervertebral discs not only relieve pain but also assist the discs in repairing themselves. When stem cells are used to complement your existing treatment regimen, you get disc regeneration and pain relief.

Why Choose Stem Cells to Regenerate Intervertebral Discs?

Spinal surgery is invasive and costly. It can take weeks to months to heal. Stem cell therapy is an affordable alternative that uses mesenchymal stem cells to regenerate the discs. The process is lowly invasive. Repairing your body with stem cells is natural and easier letting you get back to your normal life almost immediately. For some, the outcome is better than a surgical alternative.

No hospital stay is required, and the procedure is a lower-cost option with proven results!
