Stem cells may end back pain

If you have low back pain, as some 80% of us have at some point, relief may not be far off.

Clinical trials are beginning next year that regenerates damaged tissue using stem cells from the patient's own bone marrow which will then be embedded in a gel that can be implanted into the patient.

No painkillers.  No embryos killed.  Only one treatment needed per lifetime.

Stem cell trial may bring end of back pain for millions.
