96-Year-Old Reduces Chronic Low Back Pain with Stem Cell Treatment
A 96-year-old patient with chronic low back had failed to improve with today’s “traditional” and “conservative” measures. These treatments included the usual barrage of tactics: anti-inflammatory drugs, pain medications, physical therapy. It was not believed by her providers that she was a candidate for surgery. Regardless of this, her low back pain wasn’t getting any better. She traveled from a far away state to try stem cell therapy, as she felt she had nothing else to lose.
A week after stem cell treatment, she had no pain in the area that previously afflicted her. She remains doing well, and very pleased with her outcome thanks to stem cell treatment.
