U.S. resident Gilberto Munoz opted from stem cell therapy after he sustained injuries in his spinal disc (the jelly like cartilage in-between the vertebral bones). The resulting symptoms included back pain, pain in his lower back and numbness down in his left leg, foot, and toes. These conditions prevented him from performing his job, which is shoeing horses.
“I [had] collapsed, and I[had] pain down my legs, especially my left leg, numbness and pain down to my feet,” he said, recalling his condition before being treated at ASCI.
The symptoms limited his physical activity. He could no longer do any lifting, jogging, running or other strenuous and complex movements.
