"Curing" degenerative disc disease?

Has anyone been reading about this new approach to treating DDD? EDIT

Most of what I read says it's still in clinical trial phases, but I also saw a place in Colorado, I think, that looked like they were offering these injections. This would be quite the game changer if it can actually RE-generate an unhealthy disc.

  • It could help a lot more as it can help regenerate nerves also, All the money spent on research you would think by now this be done all over the USA. From what I read all these treatments are out of pocket as no FDA aproval is done on this and most of it is done outside the USA.

    All the stem cell research is our future and would be nice to live long enough to be able to benefit from it,

    Thanks for pointing out in your reply that is stem-cell technology. I didn't specify that in my posting since the article spelled it all out. I didn't really think I was "soliciting" anything w/the link, just posting an informative article. Sorry.

    Anyway, yes, I sure hope we CAN see this take hold in the US. Looks like it's origins are dating back to about 2006, so they're been working on it for some time now.

    I did read a Q&A article with an Ortho surgeon who thinks biological solutions such as injecting stem cell material into degenerated discs will drive 75% of all treatments within the next decade or so.
