Stem cells have the ability of self-renewal. They can be used to replace cells that have been lost or destroyed, or to change the behavior of other cells. Using stem cells can offer solutions for treating painful conditions such as bone and cartilage defects, osteoarthritis, tendon and ligament injuries, and maybe even nerve damage. Some clinics are even injecting stem cells into degenerative discs of the spine.
