Regenerative medicine through stem cell therapies has demonstrated good efficacy in managing a range of physical ailments, such as joint pain, arthritis and osteoarthritis. Of all the orthopedic conditions, back pain ensuing from spinal conditions is the most commonly reported pain condition in primary care settings. Inflammation and degeneration are the main contributing factors.
Some symptoms of back pain can include:
Stem cell regenerative therapy is emerging as a promising intervention for individuals suffering from back pain due to degenerative disc disease or other common types of spine-related disability.
While major issues remain in availability and reliability of various stem cell therapies in the United States, Canada and Europe, many patients choose to go internationally to receive cell-based therapies.
The effects of cell-based therapies depend on types of stem cells being used.
Mesenchymal stem cells, also called adult stem cells, signal repair in 8 tissue types in the body. They are offered in stem cell clinics world-wide as allogeneic cell-based therapies, umbilical cord and placental, or as autologous stem cells, harvested in clinic from patient's own fat cells or bone marrow.
Pluripotent stem cells, also called embryonic stem cells, are offered at Stemaid Institute in Los Cabos. They are considered the leading stem cell regenerative therapy, due to their capacity to signal repair in all 220 tissues in the body.
Our treatment plans generally last between 2 and 5 weeks, depending on your overall health, your condition, and the severity of your Back Pain symptoms. Anyone can sign up for stem cell treatment for Back Pain. Each stem cell treatment candidate will receive a tailored plan to help achieve the highest success rate for maximum therapy efficiency. Typically, stem cell therapy for Back Pain will resemble a program such as the one below, and will last for 2 - 4 weeks of treatment. We do not provide one-off injections, but do include local back injections in our comprehensive packages..
12 stem cell IVs
2 Plurisomes™ IVs
regular peptide & nutraceutical IVs
regular CaNa2 EDTA IVs
Back pain often involves the interplay of all tissue types, not just spinal joint tissue. Repairing the liver, kidneys, the digestive system, endocrine system, immune system, and even the brain can have significant impact on back pain scores over time. Pluripotent stem cells repair, regenerate and reprogram tissues they come in contact with, and this is beneficial locally in the back and spine region as well as functionally in all organs and tissues.
Patients receiving pluripotent stem cells and their active signaling factors, Plurisomes™ (pluripotent exosomes), via IV and local injections, report lower pain scores throughout the regenerative therapy and pain improvement in the back region and overall long term.
Stem cell treatments offer a multitude of benefits for various condition and injuries. In the case of back pain, stem cell therapy can be a very effective treatment and provide significant advantages, including:
When the back and its ligaments are injured, the damaged tissue activates inflammatory processes, causing chronic pain. Musculoskeletal pain, discogenic pain (intervertebral disc), joint pain in the spine, hip pain and leg pain can all ensue. Physical therapy improves some pain scores, patients report improvement in pain, but the pain signals are often not fully resolved, resulting in residual chronic pain. Stem cells can help repair damage and quench inflammation at the root, at the source of pain.
Slowing the degradation of spinal cartilage and repairing damaged cartilage is an important treatment focus of cell-based therapies. As we age, the natural healing process slows and spinal cartilage degenerates and becomes irreparable. This can lead to chronic pain, reduced mobility and serious alteration of quality of life. Stem cells repair, regenerate and reprogram tissue they reach, whether via IV or locally. Their secretome is full of growth factors, neurotrophic factors, angiogenic factors, reprogramming factors that activate the healing process.
In situations where the back has been subjected to considerable stress and strain, such as high-impact sports, accidents, or injuries, it may become irreversibly damaged, leading to the need for surgical intervention to maintain a patient's quality of life. Delaying or preventing the need for surgical options, or improving recovery time after surgical procedure. Stem cell therapy has demonstrated significant regenerative properties, making it an excellent option for staving off the need for surgery.
