Researchers believe they're getting closer to getting approved stem cell treatments on the market, but it takes time.
No matter where it occurs in the body, arthritis can be a real pain. One type, which goes by the name cervical spondylosis, can leave you with a stiff neck or major aches.
When treating your neck pain, you need to be active in your treatment, and you should stop doing certain things that may be causing your neck pain or things that may be leading to unnecessary worry and anxiety about your pain.

Regenerative medicine is a multidisciplinary field that seeks to develop the science and tools that can help repair, augment, replace, or regenerate damaged or diseased human cells, tissues, genes, organs, or metabolic processes, to restore normal function.
Advanced AS is often treated with stronger medicines, including corticosteroids, conventional disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs), biologic drugs, and JAK inhibitors. AS treatment might also include surgery and treatment of disease complications.
Researchers at the University of Southampton have developed a new way of using nanomaterials to identify and enrich skeletal stem cells - a discovery which could eventually lead to new treatments for major bone fractures and the repair of lost or damaged bone.
Cannabis abuse appears to be associated with worse spine surgery outcomes, according to a study published online March 23 in Spine.
The superman exercise is an effective and efficient exercise for people of all fitness levels. It targets your lower back muscles, glutes, hamstrings, and abs.
New research from Boston Medical Center identifies elevated mortality risk for women with back pain when compared to women without back pain.
Scientists identify small-molecule cocktail to improve stem cell use in research and disease treatments
Researchers at the National Institutes of Health have devised a four-part small-molecule cocktail that can protect stem cells called induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from stress and maintain normal stem cell structure and function.
