Stem Cell Therapy – an Innovative Approach to Back Pain
When 80% of the population suffers from back pain at some point in their lives, it is time to start thinking of ways to relieve that pain. While there are ways to ease it, there haven't been many ways to cure it. Bulging disc? Tear in the disc? This new technology could relieve the symptoms associated with these injuries. Stem cell therapy is an innovative approach way that First State Spine is looking to help people that suffer from chronic back pain in a minimally invasive procedure. Dr. Bruce Rudin is dedicated to bringing this technology to Delaware.
You may be asking, what are stem cells? They are specialized cells that grow naturally in our body and can differentiate into bone, cartilage, or fat cells. The benefits of stem cell therapy come with the idea that stem cells are regenerative and can potentially heal or repair different kinds of tissues. The goal is to inject the stem cell bone marrow back into the patient's body to restore the muscle tissue leading to a decrease in pain and an increase in quality of life! Although stem cell research is still very much in its experimental stage; in a small study, no patients seem to have worsening pain after the procedure. In fact, there are many success stories.
