One of the most common reasons that people visit doctors’ offices or miss days of work is because of back pain. Your back is central to so many different movements and activities, and when you are experiencing pain, it can be difficult to walk, bend over, or even sit down. Applying heat or ice and resting are some common home treatments for a sore back, and conventional treatments often include pain medication or surgery.
If you are like many back pain sufferers, the prospect of risky surgery or dangerous pain medications isn’t appealing at all. Back surgery often results in long recovery times, and medication is only a temporary fix that will need to be used over and over again. Zeroing in on the underlying cause of your back pain is the key to long-term pain relief and living life on your own terms.
Common Causes of Back Pain
There are many different reasons that someone might experience back pain. Some of the most common causes include:
- Muscle and ligament strain when lifting heavy objects or sudden twisting movements
- Ruptured or bulging discs
- Spinal misalignments
- Scoliosis and other skeletal issues
- Weakness in other areas causing the back to overcompensate
Whether you have low back pain or pain in your middle or upper back, it’s important to seek out treatment when you first experience symptoms before things get too serious.
Treatments for Back Pain Relief
At our clinic, we prefer a natural approach to help you avoid using drugs or surgery for your sore back. Our regenerative medicine treatments target the underlying cause of your back pain and include:
Wharton’s Jelly-derived mesenchymal cells are harvested from donated umbilical cord tissue and contain a wide range of healing properties such as proteins, peptides, growth factors, and cytokines. The fact that the cells are still so young means they are at their full healing power and can repair and regenerate damaged back tissue so that you can get the all-natural pain relief you deserve.
The reason our doctors prefer these injections is that as you age, so do your cells, and their healing power diminishes. This is why it takes longer to heal from wounds when you are older compared to when you were a child. The collection process of these potent, regenerative cells harms neither the mother nor baby. The cells are extracted from the umbilical tissue during a healthy, screened cesarean section birth.
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is another of the regenerative treatments we use to alleviate back pain. PRP injections are made from your own blood after a sample is spun in a centrifuge. As it spins at high speed, the plasma and platelets within your blood sample separate, leaving highly concentrated platelets that are loaded with healing factors. These are injected directly into the affected area to accelerate the healing process and reduce your pain.
