If you want drug-free pain relief that lasts, our treatments get to the root of your back pain and work with the body’s natural processes to help heal your back. We believe in therapy that makes the pain go away for good.
Lower Back Pain Relief
Lower back pain has been notoriously difficult to treat, up until recently. Our regenerative and natural treatments available are highly effective for back pain of all kinds. Whether your pain is the result of a recent accident or a more chronic type of pain—perhaps from an old injury that never healed properly or even from normal wear—we have the treatment plan that can help you. Our doctor will examine your back to evaluate your condition and recommend a fully customizable treatment plan suitable for your needs.
The two most popular regenerative treatments we offer at our center are injections containing stem cells and platelet-rich plasma injections. The stem cells used in our treatments are derived from the Wharton’s jelly of newborns’ umbilical cords. These young mesenchymal stem cells offer a powerful regenerative boost to your body when injected into the injured tissue in your back. Our treatments containing stems cells also includes other growth factors that promote healing. These growth factors include cytokines, collagens, proteins, peptides and other components.
Platelet-rich plasma can be equally effective in many cases. Rather than using donor tissue, the injection is made from your own blood. Your platelets—which contain several growth factors vital to healing—are separated from the other parts of your blood into a highly concentrated plasma that is then injected directly into the affected part of your back, where it helps to stimulate your body’s innate healing power.
Spinal decompression is a safe, non-invasive treatment that can be of significant benefit for certain types of back pain. The doctor will have you lie on a decompression bed that gently stretches your spine, allowing it to relax and relieving pressure on the spinal discs. The discs regain their natural shape and receive more fluids and oxygen as a result of the spine being slightly stretched. Treatment rarely causes discomfort and often delivers immediate pain relief.
Trigger Point Injections
Trigger point injections can be useful for back pain related to a particular muscle. If your pain involves a tight, knot-like point, it may be a trigger point that’s causing referred pain (pain that’s felt in another area but originating from the muscle). Our doctor will inject a shot of sarapin—a natural, plant-based anti-inflammatory—directly into the muscle’s trigger point, helping it to relax and relieving the associated pain.
Although chiropractic adjustments are useful for conditions affecting all parts of the body, its focus on the spine makes it particularly effective for back pain. A gentle technique is used to restore correct alignment to the vertebrae, helping to soothe irritated nerves and other tissues. A simple chiropractic adjustment often results in immediate pain relief.
Regenerative Cell Therapy for Back Pain
Injections containing stem cells can be incredibly effective for most types of back pain. Their strength lies in their ability to transform into the specific kind of tissue needed to repair the damage to your back. For example, if your pain is related to the spinal bones, stem cells have the ability to regenerate bone tissue; for a muscle-related injury, stem cells regenerate new muscle tissue; for pain involving connective tissue, stem cells will regenerate that; and so on.
Their versatility makes stem cells an ideal choice for a variety of conditions that cause back pain. Other benefits of injections containing stem cells include:
- A safe, effective way to avoid drugs or surgery
- Effective for chronic and acute back pain, either mild or severe
- Minimally invasive injections do not cause downtime after treatment
- Provides lasting pain relief and promotes full recovery
Back Pain Causes
Back pain is typically caused by strain or injury, and it can affect the nerves, muscles, connective tissues, spinal joints, or discs. Our patients’ back pain is commonly related to:
- Bulging or herniated discs causing severe back pain
- Trauma from a car accident
- A workplace injury or sports injury
- Repetitive motion
- Pinched nerves or sciatica
- Accidental strain or overuse while performing a daily task
