normal arachnoid spaceArachnoiditis, also known as adhesive arachnoiditis, has become a growing health concern, with thousands of new cases being diagnosed annually in the U.S. While not all cases lead to complex problems, for those who experience the chronic pain and a decrease in mobility there is a great impact to the quality of life they enjoy.

Arachnoiditis is the result of the development of scar tissue or inflammation of the arachnoid, which is a membrane surrounding the spinal nerves. The resulting pressure causes the symptoms of this condition, which can range from pain and tingling nerve sensations to neurological conditions and even paralysis.

There are several possible causes for adhesive arachnoiditis, all of which can lead to varying degrees of severity in symptoms. Some of the most common include:

  • Spinal stenosis, lumbosacral stenosis
  • Congenital abnormalities
  • Spinal surgery
  • Trauma
  • Epidurals
  • Myelograms with Pantopaque® or Myodil®

Alternative Treatment

Dr. Todd Malan, a pioneer in the use of innovative therapy to treat Arachnoiditis, recently helped Dr. Sara Davis walk again and resume her medical career after becoming wheelchair bound due to Arachnoiditis.

This alternative therapy can offer a treatment option that addresses the underlying cause of the condition, often scar tissue that is slowly strangling the arachnoid and leading to a range of symptoms. Going beyond the common pharmaceutical approach to treating symptoms, a successful stem cell treatment uses your body’s own natural healing power to regenerate healthy cells where damage has occurred.
