North Jersey Spine Group Performs Stem Cell Treatment
tem cell treatment or stem cell therapy is a revolutionary percutaneous procedure believed by some to alleviate back pain. Stem cells are considered undifferentiated cells. Science has proven, when placed in specific areas of the human body, they will become similar to the surrounding tissue and grow. Thus, they become differentiated and regenerate the human tissue in the specific area where placed. Advancement in modern medicine now makes it possible to utilize stem cells in areas of the spine. Stem cells can aide in degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis, muscle tears, spinal facet pain, pinched nerves, and sacroiliac joint pain.
Abstracting Stem Cells for Treatment
Stem cells are categorized as embryonic and adult. Adult stem cells produced by adults, are commonly used in stem cell treatment. Often the patient’s own stem cells are used by transferring them from one location to another. Mesenchymal (MSCS) are the specific type of adult stem cells used to regenerate cartilage, bone and fat cells. They are located in the hip bone (iliac) which is the site often used to acquire stem cells. During a quick and relatively painless procedure, using a syringe bone marrow containing stem cells is removed from the iliac bone. The stem cells are then centrifuged so as to concentrate them in liquid and then injected into the location in need of regeneration. Often patients benefit from one stem cell injection treatment, but some cases require 2-3 injections.
Stem cells can aide in degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis, muscle tears, spinal facet pain, pinched nerves, and sacroiliac joint pain.
