Pain Management

Living without pain, living better

It is estimated that 100 million adults in the US, experience chronic pain. The need for effective treatments continues to grow. The goal of pain management is to increase function, improve quality of life and reduce one’s sense of suffering. One of the major challenges is finding treatments that relieve pain and allow a person to function normally. While stem cells may hold the key to many future treatments, they’re also being investigated as a way to help patients find treatments to treat pain and other symptoms.

Many pain-related diseases like degenerative and inflammatory conditions have very limited treatments currently and the pain has gained the battle for many patients that lost their hope to recover their normal life.

Stem Cells Transplant Institute in Costa Rica specializes in the use of adult autologous stem cells harvested from your own fat tissue and bone marrow. The stem cells are obtained from your own adult tissues and afterwards are injected back into the bloodstream intravenously. The possibilities of rejection are almost absent and the benefits are more and more according to the investigations results.

In 2014, researchers in Australia successfully used mesenchymal stem cells — those that can grow into bone, cartilage, muscle, or fat cells — to treat pain in women with neuropathic pain symptoms. After six months of treatment the treatment was considered safe and well-tolerated ant the pain intensity was reduced.

Stem Cells treatments might be effective even in rare conditions that are difficult to treat, this is the case of Mary, a 36-year-old artist from Hawaii, who became ill in 1993 while living next to a sugar cane field where chemicals were used, 6 months after the chemicals were sprayed on the sugar cane field, Mary began experiencing paralysis of both arms. It produced the formation of hundreds of nodule-like tumors in her arms, chest, and back area. The nodules were composed of blood vessels, myelin sheath and fatty tissue; they grew in clusters, and they were bound to nerves. She was diagnosed at first with a “rare blood cancer disease.”

The diagnostic was not clear and other doctors considered the disease as a variant of neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that causes tumors to form on nerve tissue. Doctors suggested removing the tumors and after the sixth surgery she stopped because she was getting no results and the mobility of her arms was not improving. At that point, she opted for an experimental surgery to move the ulnar and radial nerves out of the path of the nodules in both of her arms. After a 15-hour surgery Mary was finally able to wiggle her fingers. Although she was seeing some progress with her upper extremity movements, she continued to be in constant pain.

Some time after, an oncologist in California diagnosed her with a “rare cancer” disease and began treating her pain. In May of 2005, Mary went to a medical clinic where she began a course of treatment that included amino acids, detoxification for environmental pollutants, and natural supplements. After two and a half years of treatments, Mary started a new life with her husband, she continued to live with her symptoms but they were manageable.

However, in 2015, Mary noticed that her health was beginning to decline again. New tumors began appearing, growing, and spreading. Her chronic pain was becoming more severe.

In June 2016, Mary received an autologous stem cell treatment. Within 48 hours of receiving the stem cell treatment, Mary’s tumors began to soften and shrink, her pain was gone, and some tumors completely disappeared.
