Whether you're a weekend warrior who participates in an intramural softball league or you regularly run marathons in your free time, stem cell therapy is worth considering. Not only can this type of treatment encourage your body's natural healing processes, but it can also reduce swelling, information, and general discomfort.

Are There Different Types of Spinal Stenosis?
(http://ow.ly/oWqn30mRC3e)

There are two different types of spinal stenosis: lumbar spinal stenosis and cervical spinal stenosis. Patients can have one or both types of stenosis. The kind you have depends on where in the spine the stenosis or "narrowing" is located. Lumbar spinal stenosis occurs in the lower back, while cervical spinal stenosis occurs in the neck.

What Are The Three Main Types of Disc Migration?
(http://ow.ly/xgDp30mRC3b)

Spinal degeneration typically occurs in three separate phases: prolapse, extrusion, and sequestration. During the prolapse phase, a disc begins to bulge, placing pressure on surrounding tissues. When extrusion occurs, the nucleus of the disc breaks through the tough outer surface of the disc. Finally, sequestration occurs when the nucleus escapes from the disc itself.

How Smoking Affects Surgical Procedures

If you are a smoker and are expecting to have surgery done soon, then you need to stop smoking NOW. Nicotine causes your blood vessels to restrict and can hinder the healing of your wounds.
