What is Spinal Cord Injury?
Most of the times, a spinal cord injury is the result of a sudden, traumatic blow to the spine. The injury will displace the bone fragments, disc material, ligaments bruise or tear into the spinal cord tissue. An injury does not sever it, but mostly it would fractures and compresses the vertebrae that will destroy the nerve cells extensions called as axons that carry the signals from brain up and down the spinal cord. While a person recover from some injuries, some other will result into complete paralysis.
A spinal cord injury (SCI) is an extremely serious type of trauma when the spine that fractures or dislocates vertebrae. Spinal cord is a major part of the central nervous system of the body or the main pathway for the information which connects the brain and peripheral nervous system. however Stem Cell Treatment in India for Spinal Cord Injuries is a rapidly evolving and promising best medical treatment at much affordable cost in India.
Signs and Symptoms of Spinal Cord Injury:
- Loss movement
- Pain, pressure, stiffness in the back or neck area
- Loss of normal bowel and bladder control
- Difficulty in walking or balancing
Stem Cell Treatment for Spinal Cord Injury
The Stem cells are known to have a tangible application in the Spinal Cord Injury. By property, the stem cells are postulated to induce the neurogenesis i.e. regenerate the affected portion of the brain matrix and spinal cord. Consequently, it will bring about a significant reversal of the symptoms. It will reach improvement through restoration of the lost or impaired neuron connections and formation of the new neuronal connections that will speed up the brain reactions through improvement of the synaptic transmission and the development of the new neuronal connections. The multiple paranoiac factors and the interleukins secreted by the stem cells will contribute to the endogenous repair.
Our stem cells have been used for the therapy of the spinal cord injuries and this is second only to the amount of patients treated for muscular dystrophy. All the different types of patients, whether with complete or incomplete injuries and injuries at various spinal regions have been treated. SCI patients can experience improvements in movement, sensation, strength, control of the bowel, limb and bladder and even the ability to sweat.
The types of injections used in the therapy are dependent upon the injury’s severity. Our doctors are currently recommending the use of a CT guided intra-spinal cord injection for the patients with very old injuries or the complete or severe incomplete injuries. This type of injection is provided in addition to the normal IV and LP injections which will allow the stem cells to be placed more directly at the injury site.
Advantages of Stem Cell Treatment for Spinal Cord Injury in India
Patients who have had their stem cell therapy for the spinal cord injury (SCI) have experienced improvement in the expansion and the intensity of sensation even while suffering from very severe injuries to the spinal column. A majority of spinal cord injury patients receive a bulk of improvements start at three to six months period after the hospital discharge. As with any form of stem cell therapy, there is a possibility for minimal to no improvement and we do encourage patients and the caregivers to maintain realistic expectations. The patient can feel symptomatic improvement in the sensorimotor functions post therapy.
