Nurturing Hope: Wharton's Jelly and Exosomes in Spinal Injury Treatment

Spinal injuries can be devastating, causing not only physical pain but also emotional and psychological distress. However, in the realm of medical advancements, there shines a glimmer of hope: Wharton's Jelly, an extraordinary substance derived from umbilical cord tissue, coupled with the power of exosomes. These regenerative agents are proving to be revolutionary in the treatment of various spinal conditions, offering a renewed lease on life for those who have experienced spinal injuries.

The Promise of Wharton's Jelly and Exosomes

Wharton's Jelly is a treasure trove of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), growth factors, cytokines, and exosomes. This dynamic combination possesses remarkable potential for spinal injury treatment, providing an avenue for tissue repair and regeneration. From minor spinal issues to more complex conditions, Wharton's Jelly and exosomes are emerging as key players in the pursuit of restoring spinal health.

Top Spinal Conditions Benefitting from Wharton's Jelly and Exosomes

Herniated Discs: Herniated discs often cause excruciating pain and limited mobility. Wharton's Jelly and exosomes can target damaged disc tissue, promoting healing and reducing inflammation. The MSCs within Wharton's Jelly have the capacity to transform into disc cells, contributing to tissue restoration.

Vertebra End Plate Fractures and Schmorl's node: Each vertebra should have a square shaped body. When a “Compression Fracture” occurs a triangle shape shows on x-ray. 

Another vertebra end plate fracture is known as Schmorl’s Node, which looks like a pencil eraser poked in formed clay. A Schmorl's node is a bulge (protrusion) of the jelly-like contents of the vertebral disc into the growth cartilage of bone (vertebra) above or below the disc.  

Degenerative Disc Disease: The gradual deterioration of spinal discs can lead to chronic pain and restricted movement. Wharton's Jelly and exosomes intervene by fostering the growth of new disc cells and slowing down the progression of degeneration.

Spinal Stenosis: In cases of spinal stenosis, where the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord, Wharton's Jelly-derived MSCs and exosomes aid in alleviating inflammation and potentially regenerating damaged nerve tissue, offering relief from pain and discomfort. Commonly associated with advanced degeneration and previous herniations.   

Pars fracture: A pars fracture refers to a specific type of stress fracture in the spine, specifically the pars interarticularis, a small, thin portion of bone that connects the upper and lower facets in the vertebra. This fracture may occur in young athletes who repeatedly extend their backs, such as gymnasts. Pars fractures are not uncommon in adults such as slips on ice,  stairs, fall off ladders  or other impact injuries. 

Spondylolisthesis: This condition involves the displacement of one vertebra over another, causing instability and pain. Wharton's Jelly and exosomes promote bone growth and fusion, enhancing the spinal structure's stability and reducing the chances of further slippage.

Spinal Cord Injuries: Perhaps the most profound application, Wharton's Jelly and exosomes have shown potential in spinal cord injury treatment. The regenerative properties stimulate nerve cell regeneration, encourage neural connections, and potentially enhance motor function recovery.

Identify predisposing factors early: Acute impact trauma may cause fractures, immediate herniations, pars fracture or spinal cord injuries. Even if you heal from acute trauma episodes, these areas are predisposed to degenerate faster and also cause neurological weakness, structural misalignments, soft tissue imbalances and body asymmetries that leads to progressive pain, pathological degeneration and chronic syndromes resulting in decreased quality of life or surgery. Cell therapy can provide improved regenerative benefits even under severe conditions but we as clinicians want to have a comprehensive exam that identifies when to be properly pro-active before there long term degeneration that seems to create an acute crisis. 

Anatomical short leg – The only accurate way to determine this common occurrence (with very different levels of severity) is to take a standing x-ray, shoes off, and no collimation of a large x-ray film to determine femur head unleveling. 

It should seem obvious that an anatomical short leg causes excessive stress on the ligaments of the sacrum, hip and lumbar vertebra causing excessive wear and degeneration. But because of gait imbalances and muscle imbalances with sartorius, TFL, vastus intermedialis this causes knee pain and degeneration as well as influence on deep spinal erectors and latissimus dorsi muscle can provide neck, shoulder stress, pain and degeneration.

Client history – Past car accidents (with or without whiplash), falls, sporting injuries and even successful surgeries that did not seem like a big deal at the time do cause compensatory pattens of neurological and muscle weakness as well as inflexibility and structural imbalances. 

The accompanying x-ray, labeled "near perfect," serves as a prime educational reference for both clinicians and patients. It underscores the importance “what is normal” and one form of exam comparison to promote proactive care, highlighting that early detection of degenerative changes, combined with an understanding of patient history, allows healthcare providers to recommend cell therapy at an optimal time. This ensures the body has the best chance for regeneration. The superimposed yellow arch illustrates the deviation of this patient's cervical spine health from the norm. Comprehensive assessments, including standard orthopedic and neurological tests, as well as evaluations of movement and function, further emphasize the advantages of seeking cell therapy for its enhanced regenerative properties.
