Transverse myelitis (TM) is an inflammatory neurological condition which affects both sides of a particular section of the spinal cord. The inflammation caused by TM damages the myelin sheath, a sleeve of tissue which protects and insulates the nerve cell fibers within the spinal cord. As a result, this damage leads to decreased electrical conductivity in the central nervous system, which interrupts communication between the nerves in the spinal column and the rest of the body. While lesions within the spine which spread progressively can lead to TM, the condition may also be caused by infections, immune system disorders, and other myelin disorders, including multiple sclerosis (MS).
The areas of the body which experience symptoms correspond directly with the level of the spinal cord affected by TM. In the cervical region of the spine, for example, nerves generally regulate signals to the neck, diaphragm muscles, and movement throughout the upper extremities. Nerves in the thoracic region help control signals in some parts of the arms and the torso. The lumbar nerves relay signals from the hips down to the legs, and the sacral nerves regulate signals to some parts of the leg, including the toes and groin area. Thus, symptoms of TM can vary from one person to the next and may include headaches, muscle aches, prickling of the legs, stiff neck, spasticity, disrupted motor skills, back pain, and paralysis.
In addition to lesions and other myelin conditions, Transverse myelitis has been linked to bacterial and viral conditions such as influenza, Lyme disease, shingles, and Epstein-Barr. In rare cases, vaccinations for infectious disease including measles-mumps, diphtheria-tetanus, and hepatitis B have been associated with the condition.
Today, treatment encompasses various forms of medications, including intravenous steroid therapy, pain medications, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial medications. If needed, physicians may also prescribe immunosuppressants, antidepressants, and medications to help with spasticity and bladder function. Physical and occupational therapy are also used to support strength, coordination, and performance of daily activities. While most patients will recovery partially, some individuals experience a rapid onset of TM progress in their symptoms quicker, and thus require in a longer recovery period.
Regenerative Medicine Therapy
In cases of Transverse myelitis and other conditions in which the myelin sheath is damaged and traditional medicine has failed, Regenerative Medicine such as stem cell therapy may be recommended. Stem cells have anti-inflammatory properties to help regulate the immune system, stimulate neuronal activity, reduce the production of stress-associated inflammatory proteins, and promote growth of nerve fibers (axons) at the lesion site.
Stem cells also have self-renewing abilities which can help repair the damage and demyelination in the spine associated with Transverse myelitis and similar conditions, such as Multiple sclerosis. When introduced both intravenously and intrathecally, stem cells have shown to promote neural connections and stimulate their re-myelination. In some cases, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy, supplemental suggestions and nutritional recommendation may be made to enhance the outcome of the procedure and address insufficiencies the patient may have.
While there is no cure for Transverse myelitis and similar neurological conditions, Regenerative Medicine therapies such as stem cell treatment can be used with or as an alternative to traditional medicine to improve symptoms. Overall, Regenerative Medicine can be a powerful solution for individuals with chronic conditions seeking greater relief than what mainstream treatments can provide.
