The iliolumbar ligaments are among the most important connective tissues in the body. These ligaments keep the lower spine together by anchoring it to stronger bones that provide ample support. Any form of trauma, injury or defect to these ligaments not only reduces their powerful strength, but can also begin a progressive degeneration that will cause increasing pain and reduced mobility.
Relief from Ligament Pain
Traditional surgical approaches can be used to ease the effects of liolumbar injuries, but many in the medical community believe that innovative regenerative medicine provides the best opportunity for relief from iliolumbar ligament trauma. The National Institute of Regenerative Medicine has been at the forefront of research and development of cell based and platelet rich plasma therapies, which are minimally invasive and exceptionally effective treatments.
Stem Cell Treatment Options
Innovations in the field of cell therapy and regenerative treatments with platelet rich plasma are giving patients greater options beyond surgery to treat ligament trauma. Since these therapies are designed to regenerate the ligament rather than just addressing the pain, they are effective not just in healing the current injury but also in preventing further degeneration.
