Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy Program
The discs in your spine act as shock absorbers for your body. Over time and as a normal part of the aging process the discs may wear out or become degenerative. The pathogenesis of degenerative disc disease involves a cycle of biomechanical factors and extracellular matrix breakdown that leads to cell death. Symptoms include chronic lower back pain and symptoms radiating into the lower extremities. This degenerative cascade can now be treated with regenerative medicine techniques including stem cell therapy.
