Stem Cell Therapy: Can It Treat Neuropathic Pain?

Neuropathic pain can be caused by a variety of conditions, but the end result is the same – extreme discomfort for the sufferer.

When it comes to the subject of neuropathy, stem cell therapy has the potential to regenerate damaged nerve tissue, reduce inflammation and improve a patient’s quality of life. Let’s look in more detail at the ways in which stem cell nerve generation may make a difference for those suffering from neuropathic pain.

What Causes Neuropathic Pain?

Neuropathic pain is also called neuralgia, or nerve pain. It is caused when a health issue affects the nerve tissue that carries messages and sensations to your brain.

There are various types of neuropathic pain. You may notice a burning, or stabbing, sensation. You may feel a sudden sharp pain, as if you have had an electric shock. You might become extra sensitive to cold, or to touch.

It can be caused by a broad range of medical conditions that impact upon your central nervous system, including the nerves that run throughout the body. These conditions include multiple sclerosis, diabetes, sciatica, fibromyalgia, and trapped nerves, as in carpal tunnel syndrome.

Cancer, and its treatment, can cause neuropathic pain, as can problems with your blood circulation, a brain injury, or even excessive alcohol consumption.

As you can see, there are many reasons why people suffer from neuropathy. Stem cell therapy has the potential to make a positive difference and lessen the severity of symptoms.

How Stem Cell Nerve Regeneration Can Help

The nature and properties of stem cells help to explain why they can support healing and improve a patient’s quality of life. In this instance, we are talking about the application of stem cells for nerve damage.

Stem cells have been described as nature’s building blocks. They are undifferentiated cells, which means they have not yet been assigned to a particular purpose in the body. When applied, directly to an affected area or intravenously, they can support the repair of nerve damage and the generation of healthy tissue – including nerve tissue.
