If you're living with chronic back pain, regenerative medicine might be a good treatment option. Whether its slight discomfort or debilitating pain, you may experience some form of back pain during your lifetime. Severe back pain is challenging to live with but in Columbus, Ohio, we can help you understand what causes your back pain and recommend minimally invasive procedures to get you lasting all-natural pain relief.
Lower Back Pain Relief
Your back is comprised of many tendons, ligaments, discs, muscles, and bones, making it susceptible to several musculoskeletal conditions. We offer a range of minimally invasive, drug-free regenerative medicine therapies, including injections containing stem cells and other growth factors as well as platelet-rich plasma injections.
Platelet-rich plasma injections take advantage of the healing components in your blood. We take a sample and compound the platelets into your plasma. We then inject the PRP into the painful area of your back, where the serum gets to work doing its job of repairing and facilitating the regeneration of damaged cells.
Issues like lower back pain and lower spine pain likely occur because of spinal misalignments and respond well to spinal decompression therapy and chiropractic care adjustments. These therapies address issues with posture, disease, and injuries in the back. Spinal decompression stretches your spine to relieve tension in the spine and spinal column, for nerve pain and disc pain relief. Chiropractic care can relieve issues with bones, nerves, muscles, and more that are affecting your back and likely other areas of your body.
Treatments Containing Stem Cells for Back Pain
Injections containing stem cells and other growth factors promote natural healing. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the potential to transform into any specialized cells that your body needs to heal damage.
With chronic back pain, injections containing stem cells are administered to the treatment area and regenerate new cells to replace damaged joints, discs, and more. As you age, your stem cells begin to decline. Your available cells also lose potency over time and fail to heal your body correctly when you get an injury or illness.
That's why our doctor chooses to use young, potent Wharton's jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells from birth tissue, rather than stem cells from your body.
Back Pain Causes
Disc bulges and herniation are common but painful conditions caused by damaged discs located between your vertebrae. If the damaged disc irritates a surrounding nerve, the shooting or stabbing pain and weakness that results is often severe. Sprains and tendon or ligament strains are other common causes of a sore back. Strains and sprains most typically occur when you engage in tasks that your body is not accustomed to, or when you are involved in an accident. Lifting while twisting or stretching past your limits are also common causes of back pain.
Chronic stress also wreaks havoc on your body and can eventually lead to back problems. Back pain is the byproduct of the tension and muscle spasms that accompany the release of stress hormones. When this tension accumulates in your back, it forms trigger points. Conditions like obesity, arthritis, kidney stones, and urinary tract infections are also known to cause symptoms of low back pain.
