Cell therapy can be a solution to the back pain.
The human spine not only helps to keep the back straight but also primarily protects the spinal cord, which performs vital functions, including reflex and conduction. Therefore, it is very important to protect the spine. During life, he receives a considerable load, so everyone sometimes has a sore back. With age, back pain becomes more common. The most common is low back pain.
Intervertebral disc herniation and facet syndrome are the most common manifestations of a depleted spine. Each case is accompanied by back pain and sometimes leads to limited movement.
GOOD CELLS offers cell therapy to reduce pain and improve musculoskeletal function. To do this, your doctor may prescribe a local injection of mesenchymal stem cells from adipose tissue (MSCs of adipose tissue).
In about 87% of patients, the volume of movement is restored and in 73% of cases, the pain is reduced.
Indication for stem cell therapy
This treatment is indicated for patients over 18 y.o. with diagnosed intervertebral disc herniation or facet joint syndrome.
● oncological diseases or their presence in the anamnesis for the last five years;● pregnancy;● mental disorders;● alcohol and drug addiction.
How do stem cells help?
Mesenchymal stem cells from adipose tissue have a wide range of action. Many studies and our observations show that these cells are able to differentiate into connective tissue, promote tissue regeneration, neovascularization of affected tissues and inhibit the inflammatory process.
The protocol for the extraction of MSCs from adipose tissue is standardized and used worldwide.
1. Consultation with a manager
Contact our managers. At this step, we gather your medical information and confirm the diagnosis. After that, we'll arrange a free online or offline consultation with a doctor.
2. Consultation with a doctor
A personal consultation with a doctor is an opportunity for you to find out all details of the program and get an individual prognosis. All the medical information you provide will be carefully reviewed so that you get the most effective treatment. The procedures take place in our clinical institutions in Kyiv, Ukraine.
The course of the treatment is developed individually and lasts 4 days or more.
During the checkup, the doctor assesses your readiness for cell therapy. If the assessment is positive, biological materials are taken. Depending on your doctor's recommendations, you may be prescribed your own* or donor stem cells.
* If you are prescribed the treatment with your own cells, you will have an ear punch biopsy performed under anesthesia in an operating room. The procedure lasts for 15 minutes. The punch depth is up to 4 mm, and the diameter is up to 3 mm.
4. Preparation of the stem cell product
OWN CELLSAfter the biomaterials are collected, our team of biotechnologists will prepare a therapeutic dose of stem cells. In our laboratory, we will select stem cells from your sample, grow the required number of cells, test them, then create a stem cell product for your treatment. Usually, the production takes up to 21 days.
DONOR CELLSAccording to the doctor's prescription, the biotechnologist will select a ready-made and pre-tested sample of donor cells from our cryobank in the required quantity. In this case, cell injection can happen immediately after diagnosis and drug preparation.
5. Start of treatment
During your first visit to the clinic, you will consult with a doctor, then have an instrumental (MRI or X-ray), clinical, and laboratory checkup.
6. Injection of the cellular product, the regeneration phase
As part of treatment, the doctor may prescribe local introduction of the cellular product.
7. Medical report and reducing of the basic treatment
You will be provided with a medical assessment report that states the diagnosis, the examination results (clinical, laboratory, and instrumental), the treatment process, and further recommendations. The doctor will examine you, select the necessary treatment, or adjust the one prescribed to you at the time of arrival at the clinic.
8. Keeping in touch
The main results can be observed within 6 months after treatment. You will see the improvement of the regenerative processes in the body.
Throughout the program, you will have a personal manager who will ensure the best communication between you and the clinic. After treatment, our patients are advised to maintain contact with us. We'll ask you to fill out a questionnaire in 3 and 6 months after the treatment to evaluate the progress and answer all questions.
Will this treatment relieve the pain immediately?
Yes, you will feel relief immediately after the procedure.
Can I play sports after treatment?
Moderate physical activity will be required. This will improve back muscles and blood circulation, which is essential for the effective results of stem cell transplantation.
Is it possible to restore the functionality of the spine after injuries with the help of stem cells?
We can't be sure. Stem cell therapy results depend on the type of damage, the amount of damaged tissue, the patient's age, etc. Today, some technologies allow you to restore nerve fibers, but they are based solely on the patient's natural ability to regenerate tissues.
