Spinal Stenosis


There are usually small spaces in the spine. When these spaces narrow Spinal Stenosis can occur. It causes pressure on your spinal cord and nerves. This condition is known to occur in the lower back or your neck. It is a common condition in patients over the age of 50. However, it is not to say that younger patients do not experience this medical condition as well.

Spinal Stenosis has no symptoms; however, depending on the severity of the pressure placed on your spine patients may experience numbness, pain and weakness. And in some cases it can lead to bladder and bowel problems.

What causes Spinal Stenosis?

This condition can occur through aging. It is a natural process of growing older. After decades of normal wear, where pressure is applied to the spine, it can become compressed. Other common causes are related spine conditions, injury or accident.

What about younger patients?

If you are below 50 years, it can mean you had a congenital birth defect which resulted in a small spinal canal.

How can stem cells or PRP treatment help?

By using cells from your own body, stem cell and PRP treatments distinguish themselves from other treatments. These treatments are non invasive and use platelets from your own blood samples to heal you. The treatment begins with a consultation with our physicians. Along with a physical exam imaging diagnostics may be recommended. Once the case is diagnosed, and the stem cell or PRP treatment is deemed to be suitable we begin by collecting a small blood sample. The platelets in the blood sample are then activated and centrifuged by our technicians. Once ready, the stem cells can be injected into the target area requiring the healing. The healing begins almost instantaneously and you can feel the pain relief begin over the area. Over the coming days and weeks it will continue to get better. Your physician may advise a course of 2-6 stem cell treatments depending on factors such as the area of treatment and the extent of damage.
