From the brain to the spinal cord and muscles to the peripheral nerve location, our body is susceptible to nerve damage. There are various reasons why nerve pain or damage can occur. Weight or extending wounds can make strands inside the nerve break and this may meddle with the nerve’s capacity to send or receive signals, without harming the upper layer. If both the nerve and protection layer have been disjoined and the nerve isn’t settled, the developing nerve filaments may frame a difficult nerve scar or neuroma.

Causes Of Nerve Damage
Autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, Guillain-Barré syndrome inflammatory bowel disease etc. attack the nervous system and damage the neurons. In a disease like cancer, cancerous masses may push against or crush nerves, leading to nerve pain and damage. Around 30 per cent of neuropathy cases are caused by nerve harm related with diabetes. In addition, alcohol abuse, amputation (which can bring about terrible torment), some chemotherapy drugs, radiation treatment, complex provincial agony disorder type II, trigeminal neuralgia, shingles, spinal stenosis, and central sensory system issue, for example, Parkinson disease and numerous sclerosis also cause nerve torment.

How Stem Cells Help
Stem cells are considered to be the mother cells of the body that possesses the ability to give rise to many different kinds of cell types in body like the heart cell, muscle cells, nerve cells etc. Although stem cells are present in all the organs of the body, they are found in abundance in bone marrow and fat tissue. Stem cells present in the umbilical cord are an excellent source for therapeutic purpose.
