Stem Cell Therapy for Neuropathy
Comprehensive treatment for neuropathy using state-of-the-art stem cell therapy
At Regenesis Stem Cell Center, Dr. Charles Lee offers a comprehensive stem cell approach for neuropathy using state-of-the-art technology. Neuropathy is a common disorder caused by damage to the nerves that are outside of the brain and spinal cord, known as peripheral nerves. These nerves can be damaged as they leave the spinal canal or all the way down to the smallest nerve fibers of the skin. The condition can cause pain, numbness, or weakness, especially in your hands and feet, and it is difficult to treat. Our patients choose stem cell therapy for neuropathy at Regenesis Stem Cell Center because they want an effective, low-risk, nonsurgical option that may help them heal and prevent further nerve damage.
Symptoms of Neuropathy That Can Improve with Stem Cell Therapy at Regenesis
Therapy for neuropathy at Regenesis Stem Cell Center can improve the following symptoms of peripheral neuropathy:
- Tingling or numbness in your feet or hands
- Throbbing, jabbing, or burning pain
- Extreme sensitivity to touch
- Falling or lack of coordination
- Muscle weakness
Should You Consider Stem Cell Therapy for Neuropathy?
If you are experiencing early symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, such as tingling or prickling in your feet when you walk or extreme sensitivity to touch in your hands, you should consider stem cells for neuropathy at Regenesis. Traditional medical approaches to treating the symptoms of neuropathy include pain relievers, anti-seizure medications, antidepressants, physical therapy, or ultimately, surgery. The side effects or risks for some of these solutions may be a cause for concern, especially if you are facing a complicated surgery and would prefer to avoid a surgical wound or anesthesia. If you want a safe, effective option for reducing the symptoms of neuropathy without medications or surgery, you should consult with Dr. Lee about stem cell therapy.
Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy for Neuropathy at Regenesis
Peripheral neuropathy caused by nerve entrapment can easily and quickly benefit from the therapies offered at Regenesis. Nerve entrapment is when a nerve becomes compressed by the surrounding tissues. As the inflamed or damaged tissue rubs or squeezes the nerve, you may experience symptoms of pain or tingling. Our stem cell therapy utilizes the body’s own natural healing processes for cell regrowth and repair, directing your system for regeneration to the inflamed or damaged tissue that is affecting your peripheral nerves. Our procedures are safe and non-invasive and do not require medication. While small fiber neuropathy can be difficult to treat, requiring time to identify the cause and best treatment approach, we have seen patients’ symptoms improve following their stem cell procedure for neuropathy.
What to Expect from Stem Cell Therapy for Neuropathy at Regenesis
Conveniently, Dr. Lee performs stem cell therapy at the Regenesis Stem Cell Center in Huntsville, Alabama. You will not need to visit a hospital since the procedures require no anesthesia or recovery period. Since the source of neuropathy can be so difficult to identify and resolve, your precise diagnosis is essential before moving ahead with any protocol. To arrive at a diagnosis, Dr. Lee will thoroughly review your medical history, perform an independent history and physical examination, and consult high-tech testing, imagery, and ultrasound scans to identify inflamed or damaged tissue that could be causing nerve pain. Then he will recommend a comprehensive therapeutic strategy tailored to your needs.
If stem cell therapy is part of your plan, the first step on the day of your procedure will be to prepare your own stem cells and platelet-rich plasma. Initially, your stem cells form at conception, but eventually, they differentiate to become every type of cell in your body, from muscle and tissue to bone, nerves, and skin. Our goal with stem cell therapy for neuropathy is repair and regeneration, so we use your entire bone marrow entourage of cells, including mesenchymal stem cells, which are a specific type of adult stem cell that divide and transdifferentiate into nerves, cartilage, ligaments, bones, and muscle to name a few. You have robust reservoirs of mesenchymal stem cells in your own bone marrow. Our regenerative therapy also includes using platelet-rich plasma, which we concentrate from your blood plasma. These platelets release an abundance of growth factors that promote healing in injured or inflamed tissue and signal stem cells to activate. Clinical studies have demonstrated that even on their own, platelet-rich plasma injections can improve healing and cell regrowth for peripheral neuropathy.
When you arrive at Regenesis for your procedure, Dr. Lee will use a local anesthetic numbing with optional oral or IV sedation to remove your stem cell-rich bone marrow. We concentrate and extract your stem cells in our lab while you wait comfortably. The process takes about two hours. Then, while you are under additional mild sedative and often a numbing block, Dr. Lee will use real-time fluoroscopy and ultrasound to inject your own healthy stem cells and platelet-rich plasma into the precise area of tissue damage or inflammation identified in your diagnosis. Your live stem cells and platelet-rich plasma immediately begin your body's natural healing and regeneration. Immediately following the procedure, you will be able to return home and continue your normal everyday activity. You should see improvement in your neuropathy symptoms in three to six months. However, pain relief may begin much sooner.
