Back Pain Stem Cell Therapy

Struggling with back pain is something many Americans deal with on a daily basis. In fact, back pain is one of the most common reasons people have to miss days of work, which means either using up paid vacation hours or going unpaid for the day. Athletes and active people are especially prone to back problems, but these symptoms can also be caused by injury or disease.

Stem cell therapy is a non-surgical back pain treatment that may be effective for you. Arrange a consultation to discuss how it works, why it works and whether it can address the root cause of your symptoms.

Back Problems and Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cells exist throughout your body. This treatment protocol involves harvesting stem cells – usually from your fat or from the bone marrow – and injecting the concentrated stem cells into the treatment area. These cells have been helping your body heal injuries and repair damaged tissue your entire life. By reinjecting them in a concentrated form, the stem cells stimulate the healing process while building new tissue and reducing inflammation.

Some of the back problems commonly addressed with stem cell therapy include:

  • Lumbar spine pain
  • Muscle and ligament strain
  • Herniated disc
  • Sciatica
  • Bulging disc
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal arthritis
  • Spinal osteoporosis
  • Facet joint syndrome

Contact the team if you aren’t sure whether these injections are appropriate for your back issues.

Stem Cell Injection Appointments

The harvesting and injection process is completed in the same appointment. First, a long needle is used to extract stem cells from a certain area of your body, usually from an area of excess fat or from the marrow within your bones. Next, the harvested material is placed in a centrifuge, which spins it around, isolating each of the component parts. The isolated stem cells are then injected with a needle into the treatment area.

Why is Stem Cell Therapy a Good Way to Treat Back Pain?

Stem cell therapy isn’t the right way to treat every kind of back pain, and it isn’t right for every person. That is why an exam and consultation is so important: to determine whether you are a good candidate. You deserve a treatment that gives you the best chance at back pain reduction.

If you are a good candidate, stem cells have several benefits:

  • Decrease mid-back and lower back pain
  • May allow you to avoid invasive surgery and a prolonged surgical recovery
  • May make it possible to avoid cortisone injections
  • May reduce or eliminate your dependence on pain medications
  • May increase your mobility and activity level
  • May improve your quality of life!

You will be able to return home shortly after the injections. While there isn’t a prolonged recovery, you may want to consider taking 1-2 days off from work or other activities. You will get complete aftercare and downtime details during your consultation.

Back pain relief isn’t instantaneous. The stem cells must have time to work. Although everyone’s body has a different timeline, you could start feeling the results as soon as a couple weeks later. Those results may continue to improve subtly for up to a year.

Take the Next Step in Pursuit of Pain Relief

If you suffer from back pain and are searching for answers, stem cell therapy may be an effective option. Scheduling a consultation is the only way to determine if you are a good candidate.
