Nerve Damage through Stem Cell Therapy- Our brain is the central processing unit of our body which controls every function with the help of a network of cells known as neurons. Neurons or nerve cells communicate by sending and receiving the signals from the brain to all the parts of the body and vice versa. The brain is sectioned into different parts and each part controls specific functions of the body.

Nerve Damage through Stem Cell Therapy

Types of Nerves in the Body:

There are three types of nerves in the body:

  1. Autonomic nerves: Involuntary activities of your body such as heart rateblood pressure, digestion, and temperature regulation.
  2. Motor nerves. Your movements and actions
  3. Sensory nerves. Helps in the feel of pain and other sensations.

Because nerves are essential to all you do, nerve pain and damage can seriously affect your quality of life.

Symptoms of different nerve damage

Autonomic nerve damage can lead to inability to sense chest pain, light-headedness, bladder dysfunction and sexual dysfunction

Motor nerves damage may produce symptoms like weakness, muscle atrophy, twitching and paralysis

Sensory nerve damage may produce pain, sensitivity, numbness, and problems with positional awareness

Possible causes of nerve damage include conditions like autoimmune diseases (multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis), cancer, compression/trauma, diabetes (diabetic neuropathy), drug side effects and toxicity, motor neuron disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), nutritional deficiency and infectious diseases (Lyme disease and herpes viruses).

Reduce Nerve Damage through Stem Cell Therapy:

Nerve injury occurs by demyelination, axonal loss, or a combination and usually surgical intervention may be favored to promote nerve regeneration. Since nerve damages are serious issues of concern and cannot be cured completely, the doctors focus on reducing the symptoms and preventing the permanent damage to the nerves with the use of conventional medications like pain relievers, antidepressants, and certain anti-seizure drugs. But conventional treatments to cure nerve damages showed serious contraindications such as respiratory failure, grade III artificial lung ventilation, dysphasia and presence of gastric stroma.

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells of the body which can transform into any type of cell (brain cells, muscle cells, red blood cells or heart cells) to provide healing and regenerative power to the injured or damaged part of the body. Stem cells pose an exciting therapeutic potential to deal with neuropathic pain. Bone marrow or adipose-derived stem cells differentiated to glial-like cells express a range of neurotrophic factors, which provides neuro-protection and neuro-regenerative effects. Critical in providing a protective microenvironment, neurotrophic factors are growth factors known to promote neuron development and survival. They also maintain functional integrity, promote regeneration, regulate neuronal plasticity, and aid in the repairing of damaged nerves.

Now scientists are able to exploit the use of stem cells in the treatment of a variety of neurological diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, ALS, Cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. In bone marrow, the stem cells are extracted from hip bone or iliac crest after general anesthesia and in adipose tissue, the extraction is done from belly area with local anesthesia. The extracted cells are processed to be enriched with the pure line of stem cells and re-injected into the patient either by intravenous (infusion through the vein) or intrathecal (infusion through lumbar puncture) injections. Post-treatment, the patient is asked to visit the doctor after a specific period of time for rehabilitation therapies which help in behavioral and emotional development, communication and social interaction, self-regulation and cognitive and adaptive skills.

Stem cell therapy for damaged nerves has a great potential as they can replenish, rejuvenate and repair the neurons as well as reduce the inflammation. This treatment reassures the safety of the patient with promising results.

    1. Axonal motor neuropathy is a condition associated with progressive neuronal damage, and thus is responsible for delayed motor response. Clinical studies have confirmed differentiation potential of stem cells into neuronal lineage and thus are believed to be responsible for replacing dead as well as damaged neurons with the fresh ones; in order to restore functional attributes of the specified region.
      However, the treatment outcome is considered to be highly variable depending upon patient’s physical condition and disease severity. In this regard, we would like to request you to send us your recent medical reports for further analysis, and we would definitely come up with a solid treatment plant for you!

      Thanks & Regards

  1. I’ve been dealing with what may be a mild case of CRPS for a year now in both of my hands. In any case it’s definitely nerve damage, associated with tingling and burning sensations. At the worst they’re completely unusable, but I can slowly rehabilitate them with the most basic gradual movements. After months, at one point I largely had their functionality back but lost it all again for making a small mistake. That’s how it goes; recovery is very difficult because the smallest mistakes can send me back to the beginning. Could stem cells aid in this recovery effort?

    1. Dear Ryan
      CRPS is believed to be associated with damage or malfunctioning of peripheral as well as central nervous system. Stem cells have tremendous potential to be differentiated into neuronal lineage. In your case, stem cells can help regulate mechanism with steady functional improvement; thus, can speed up the recovery at an unusually faster rate. Kindly send us your recent medical reports, details of the treatment undergone and the specific issues you face as roadblocks to your recovery; so that we would be able to provide you guidance and accurate prognosis.

      Thanks & Regards

  2. Can this therapy be used for post ETS (Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy) to repair the nerve connection? Most suffer from compensatory sweating after this surgery and not all are candidates for nerve repair surgery.

    1. Dear Barry
      ETS is referred to be as a condition, wherein sympathetic nerve is destroyed; which functions to regulate body’s unconscious action. Stem cell treatment can regulate mechanism of action post surgery. We have obtained very encouraging results from so far treated patients; but we cannot assure significant improvement as very limited data is available with Us. Although, kindly send us your recent medical reports in order to further analyse your case in expert medical guidance and accurate prognosis.

      Thanks & regards

  3. Hi, I have nerve damage as a result of a doctor injecting a needle too hard into my scalp. He damaged a nerve and the spot he injected is still painful nearly a year later. Its just a tiny spot, about 1cm in diameter. Would stem cells assist me in healing this small and isolated but very painful bit of nerve?
    Thanks!

    1. Dear Mr. John we need to further evaluate your case, that needs your recent medical reports which can be evaluated through our medical experts. As a matter of fact, stem cell support neuronal regeneration but the extent of regeneration depends upon other factors as well.
      Kindly revert back with your recent reports to info@advancells.com or Whatsapp us +91-9654321400 and we will assure you offer the best possible solution. Thank you!

  4. Chiari1 with Syringomyelia. Decompression surgery 2005. Nerve damage in my back. Would stem cell help?.
    Many thanks,

  5. Hi, I had a hip replacement and the doctor kicked a nerve for my quad muscles. I have lost most strength in that leg and I ended up breaking my leg falling down, due to muscle atrophy. Is this something stem cell or MSC therapy help with? I am retired and am depressed with the fact that this will be with me for the rest of my life and traditional therapy is not helping beyond repairing bone damage. Thank you in advance!

  6. I had an ankle replaced 5 years ago. The Dr moved two major nerves in my foot, and then put them back to their original position. One nerve healed just fine. The other, the one that affects my big toe and the ball of my foot did not. I have been in terrible pain every day for the past 5 years. Will stem cell therapy help me? I need your help very much. Thank you…Cheryl Harstad

  7. I am seventy two years old and suffer from Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2). My hearing loss, which was minimal a first, did not start until I was in my thirties. By my sixties my hearing loss was such that I needed hearing aids to function. When I was age sixty five I had gamma knife radiotherapy to stop the tumors growth. Unfortunately, further nerve damage manifested about a month after radiotherapy. Is there any chance stem cell therapy could repair the nerve damage?

    1. Stem cells have very active role in neuronal cells differentiation. It will help you to regain your lost nerve function. Plz share your reports and diagnosis made by doctor on your case for us to come up with a therapy plan.
