90 Year-Old Receives Stem Cell Therapy For Back Pain
A 90-year-old female patient decided enough was enough with her back pain. When seeking out a solution to her back problems, she was not deemed a good candidate for surgery – which was probably a good thing in the long run. Being Internet savvy, the patient surfed the web exploring her options for relief. She had spent a considerable amount of time researching regenerative medicine therapy for back pain – and found her options made her optimistic.
Regenerative medicine utilizes treatments such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapy to repair and heal injured tissues. Obviously, as with many things in the world of medicine, the earlier treatment starts after injury, the better. Yet, when faced with declining health, debility and loss of function, patients of advanced aged are poor surgical candidates. This lack of surgical options makes regenerative medicine treatments such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy such attractive to patients with advanced arthritis.
This patient suffered excruciating back pain and was helped tremendously with a course of PRP and Stem Cell therapy. Medicine is advancing and regenerative therapy is at the forefront of medical breakthroughs.
