If back pain is robbing you of activities you enjoy, we offer you a more natural, noninvasive alternative to surgery and drugs: regenerative medicine. It concentrates natural healing agents directly on the source of pain, triggering your body’s own responses.
Many types of spine pain result from a mechanical problem involving bones, muscles, cartilage and ligaments. The problem affects the nerves, which send pain signals to the brain. Our back pain relief doctors target your condition precisely at its source rather than mask it with medication.
Why Does My Lower Back Hurt?
Lower back pain has a wide range of causes: genetics, trauma, improper posture and age-related changes in the spine. Sprains and strains that injure ligaments and muscles usually heal on their own. The effect of aging is another common reason and often requires medical intervention.
Spinal stenosis. This narrowing of the spinal canal compresses adjacent nerves and can result in chronic backache, numbness and cramping. It’s often the result of bone spurs caused by osteoarthritis.
Herniated disc. Also known as bulging disc, it occurs when the soft center of discs between spinal bones bulges through a weak spot in its casing. When it pushes against spinal nerves, it can cause severe pain, numbness and weakness.
Sciatica. This common type of pain is caused by pressure on a large nerve that runs from the lower spine down the back of each leg. Sciatica can cause pain in the lower back as well as buttock and hip pain, and weakness or numbness in the legs and feet. Many people feel it on only one side.
Spinal osteoarthritis. Also known as facet disease or lumbar arthritis, this degenerative condition causes bony growths on spinal bones that lead to pain and stiffness. It is usually a result of age and years of wear and tear.
Osteoporosis. Most often seen in older Caucasian women, this progressive condition causes brittle bones that are prone to fracturing.
Regenerative Cells for Back Pain
Pain should not be ignored, as it can lead to complications and crippling injury. Anti-inflammatories and pain medication are not a long-term answer. Open-back surgery should be a last resort in many cases, as you run the risk of infection, prolonged downtime and uncertain success.
A more natural alternative is regenerative cellular treatment. Our doctors use this cutting-edge treatment in the form of Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors. They lock on to injured and degraded tissue and bone at the cellular level.
Osteoarthritis can also be treated with platelet-rich plasma, or PRP. This procedure concentrates the clotting part of blood and injects it into the treatment site to stimulate the body’s healing response.
Lower Back Pain Relief
If you suffer from chronic lower back pain, remember that the lower spine bears a lifetime of motion and the weight of the upper body. Deterioration of discs and bones is common, but it doesn’t have to limit your enjoyment of life.
Sciatica, herniated disc, spinal stenosis and other back pain causes can respond well to cell therapy and other regenerative treatments in the hands of an experienced doctor.
