Northern Colorado Doctor Kenneth Pettine Releases Information on Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy for Chronic Neck and Back Pain
Date:3/7/2017

Dr. Kenneth Pettine, a Northern Colorado board-certified retired orthopedic surgeon, is currently researching the use of the mesenchymal stem cell and their potential in treating orthopedic conditions such as osteoarthritis or other joint and disc related issues. He’s now releasing more information about what these incredible stem cells are and the exciting therapeutic opportunities of mesenchymal stem cell therapy for the interested public in Northern Colorado.

Stem cells are rare, unique cells in our body that can duplicate themselves over and over again and can continue to regenerate throughout our lives. Each particular stem cell can only become either one type or a very limited number of cell types. As we get older, we have fewer stem cells in our body, which is why we have a decreased ability to heal and avoid diseases like cancer. Introducing new stem cells to the body could help counteract the effects of degenerated joints and chronic neck and back pain.

Mesenchymal stem cell are one type of stem cell, and the one that Dr. Pettine is using to focus his clinical research on stem cell therapy. This particular type of stem cell modulates your immune system, is extremely anti-inflammatory and has many positive effects in helping your body treat autoimmune conditions. The mesenchymal stem cell is the main cell helping your body heal from orthopedic and spine injuries and helping treat degenerative conditions such as arthritis.

Almost all of this research involves mesenchymal stem cells obtained from bone marrow. Most all these studies involved obtaining the mesenchymal stem cell from a donor's bone marrow and then expanding these cells in a laboratory. The number of mesenchymal stem cells in a petri dish can be increased to result in several hundred million cells. These cells are then put into recipient animals and humans to study their ability to treat numerous autoimmune diseases such as Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, crohn's disease, asthma, lupus, to name just a few. These cells are also being studied to treat and regrow damaged heart muscle after a heart attack. Extensive research is being conducted to evaluate the safety and efficacy of utilizing mesenchymal stem cells to treat orthopedic conditions such as osteoarthritis of your joints and disc related chronic back and neck pain.

This has exciting implications for chronic neck and back pain sufferers. These Mesenchymal stem cells could help regenerate tissue in the spine, reversing issues like degenerative disc disease. The stem cells could also decrease pain-causing inflammation and help patients recover from accidents and injuries faster.
