I haven't heard about stem cell for this issue but the jury seems to be out for strong evidence to be used for other conditions. As a PT, I can tell you that most herniated discs do get better in time, on their own and physical therapy can help one learn how to manage their conditions. I don't know all your issue but surgery is not always the answer and many patients have more issues after surgery.

Here is a link of an abstract related to the healing process known as disc resorption. There is also plenty of evidence to support that the majority of the population has a herniated disc but are asymptomatic.

mine just tends to flare up quite often, I am young… It got aggravated again in October, and it is just getting better as I type this. I'm just tired of the flare-ups perhaps. It makes me immobile and is a pain to deal with. But I do agree they do get better over time
