    Question Has anyone had stem cell therapy for spine osteoarthritis?

    Has anyone had stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis of the spine or know anybody who has had this procedure? What were the results? Would you recommend it?

    Thanks!

    Re: Has anyone had stem cell therapy for spine osteoarthriti

    I'd certainly like to know as well. My condition is named spondylolisthesis which is a vertebra shifted relative to the ones above and below. It pinches nerves and sends the pain elsewhere, not in the back. The impact of running for 40+ years caused it, but swimming does not hurt at all. However, I'd sure like to be able to do both if possible. Surgery is out of the question, but if there's another magic pill, bring it on.

    Check out the ELDOA concept and Dr. Guy Voyer. It is a way to open, strengthen, and stabilize the spine. You need a trained, certified practitioner and they are few and far between.

    Thanks, Swoomer; but I am specifically looking to connect with somebody who has had stem cell therapy.
