05 Apr Spinal Cord Injury Treatment: New Research Shows Spinal Regrowth from Stem Cell Therapy

Research published in Nature Medicine has revealed that spinal regrowth has been successfully achieved from stem cell therapy, which could have significant implications for the future of spinal cord injury treatment.

Stem cells have the ability to regenerate new organs, repair injured tissues and regulate the immune system. Their function in regenerative medicine offers an increasing amount of new hope to patients suffering from a wide range of medical conditions.

Fantastic results have been seen from using stem cell therapy to treat spinal cord injuries, a condition of which approximately 273,000 people suffer from in the USA alone.

Using stem cell techniques, spinal regrowth has been achieved, according to recent research. Scientists are successfully able to regrow the corticospinal tracts through the injured cord using stem cell treatment.

The treatment we provide at Unique Access Medical has delivered similar results. We utilize high dose mesenchymal stem cells in our treatments combined with epidural electrical stimulation for spinal cord injury patients, which also helps in regeneration of axonal and corticospinal tracts through the injured spinal cord

Stem cell treatment is no longer experimental – it is a treatment that has been used for a while now. Combining epidural stimulation together with stem cell therapy allows for the regeneration of axonal and corticospinal tracts which has resulted in remarkable motor function and sensory function recovery.
