Back pain can severely limit your mobility and cause you to miss work, but our chiropractors and pain management specialists can help determine the cause of your back pain.
Regenerative treatments, such as platelets, bone marrow aspirates, and stem cells can be used to treat back, neck, and joint pain. They help by increasing the rate of healing, which helps reduce pain while increasing circulation to the injured joint, muscle, or tendon. Regenerative medicine can be used to treat arthritis, back and neck pain, sprains, and strains, tendinitis, joint pain, and TMJ.
It is estimated that back pain affects more than 632 million people across the globe or about 68 percent of the adult population. The good news is that mesenchymal stem cell therapy can help reduce pain and heal back injuries. Mesenchymal Stem cells for back pain treatments are typically harvested from the patient's own bone marrow or from mesenchymal stem cells gathered from other sources. The harvested cells are then injected into the injured area of the body. While mesenchymal stem cell therapy for back pain is still considered experimental and research is ongoing, it is being used to help fascinated the repair of herniated discs or discs that are affected by degenerative disc disease.
Connective tissue matrix (CTM) injections are used to treat back pain that is associated with arthritis and degenerative joint disease. It helps to cushion the joints and relieve the pain associated with bone-on-bone rubbing or grinding. Additionally, it can help repair damage to the soft tissues in the spine, including tendons and ligaments. CTM injections are created using placental tissue that is donated after live births. The injections contain a few stem cells and a lot of growth factors that can help in healing back and neck injuries.
Houston Spine & Regenerative Medicine provides a variety of non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments for back, neck, and joint pain, including stem cell therapies and connective tissue matrix injections. Each treatment program is tailored for the individual, their treatment goals, and the type and severity of the injury, and we only recommend surgery as a last resort.
