STEM CELLS FOR BACK & NECK PAIN
DO YOU HAVE BACK OR NECK PAIN?
If back or neck pain is limiting your activity and has you considering surgery, there is another option. Stem cells can mature into any kind of cell in the body. When injected into the affected area of the back or neck, they can help rehydrate the intervertebral discs, rebuilding the cushioning between vertebrae, and providing relief through a simple, non-surgical procedure.
THE ROLE OF INTERVERTEBRAL FIBROCARTILAGE IN THE SPINE
Intervertebral cartilage helps support the weight of the torso and protects vertebrae from painful friction. Osteoarthritis is just one of many chronic degenerative disorders that can affect the spine, causing slow but steady deterioration of the intervertebral discs. Back or neck injuries can also cause the beginning of spine degeneration.
AN ALTERNATIVE TO TRADITIONAL TREATMENTS
Traditional approaches to treating back or neck pain involve either masking the symptoms with pain relief medications or resorting to physical therapy or even surgery. However, these treatments often provide only temporary relief. Stem cell back and neck treatments fight inflammation naturally and regenerate the cells in the affected intervertebral joints, addressing not the symptoms, but the root of the problem. Stem cells are an alternative to back surgery such as spinal fusion.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Stem cell therapy for neck pain or back pain involves a simple, non-surgical injection into the affected area. Dr. Heather Hinshelwood (Dr. H) administers the treatment in our office using umbilical stem cells. It typically takes about 30 minutes and you will leave our office with a band-aid covering the injection site. No lifestyle changes are necessary as the cells work to improve your condition.
STEM CELL BACK AND NECK THERAPY RESULTS
The stem cells immediately start to reduce inflammation and begin to promote cell division and renewal. Many patients experience a significant reduction in back or neck pain within 48 hours due to the reduced inflammation. You should feel maximum results within 10 to 12 weeks, at which time you can increase your activity levels according to your comfort. However, the regenerative process can continue for much longer, and continued improvement as far as 6 months out is not unusual. Our patients usually see up to a 65% recovery within 12 weeks and up to 95% recovery within 6 months.
