Avoid Spine Surgery. Consider the Regenerative Alternative.

Why Surgery Should Always Be Your Last Treatment Option.

Spine pain is one of the most common orthopedic problems that individuals experience. Nearly everyone experiences some sort of back pain throughout their lives and it’s not uncommon to have back pain come and go.

Unfortunately, surgery is commonly presented as the only option to patients by their doctors, even when studies have shown that many of these surgeries produce no benefit and may create long-term problems around the surgical area. Oftentimes, the patient may be left with more pain than they started with.

While there are times when surgery may be required, regenerative treatments are quickly becoming the preferred surgical alternative for conditions that cause spine pain. And they are an excellent alternative to steroid injections, which have their own list of significant side effects.

Regenerative treatment patients avoid the long list of surgical risks, which are often not experienced until well after the surgery. Besides the risks associated with the surgery, patients deal with painful and lengthy recovery periods to try and regain strength and range of motion. And depending on the type of surgery, patients are likely to experience a degenerative cascade of the surrounding discs and tissues, due to fusions or other surgical procedures to remove tissue.

With regenerative treatments, patients benefit from minimal downtime and are encouraged to return to activity. We have seen plenty of regenerative patients experience a full recovery and become pain-free, even when surgery was originally recommended for their spine condition.

Common Causes of Back & Neck Pain

Back & neck pain can be caused by numerous conditions and injuries. Finding the correct diagnosis is the essential first step to treating the pain. Here are some of the most common causes of back and neck pain.

  • Disc Degeneration
  • Sacroiliac Joint Pain
  • Facet Arthritis/Hypertorophy
  • Whiplash
  • Herniated Spinal Discs
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Muscle Strains and Sprains

Intradiscal Stem Cell Therapy for Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative Disc Disease is a common back pain diagnosis in the United States and affects millions of patients. The symptoms of the condition can become so painful that patients may be forced to miss work and are prevented from participating in regular daily activities. Treatment is often limited to conservative care such as chiropractic, physical therapy, medications, or interventional pain injections or even invasive surgical procedures to try to decrease the daily chronic low back pain. Many people even resort to relying on opioid based pain medications for relief. Numerous studies have shown surgery improves back pain in the average patient only 30-40%.

Bone Marrow Concentrate Mesenchymal Stem Cell therapy can improve the average patient pain score by 70% with long term follow up. Intradiscal placement of a patient’s own bone marrow concentrate mesenchymal stem cells will help to reduce inflammation in the spine and may stimulate the creation of new tissue in the spinal disc to help reverse the effects of the disease. This is now an office procedure which is performed with I.V. sedation and local anesthetic and usually only takes 45 minutes. Studies have noted that patients who received higher concentrations of stem cells in their injections saw a greater improvement in their back pain. Recent three year follow-up data, suggests that utilizing a patient’s own stem cells can provide long-term back pain relief and prevented the need for invasive surgery in 77% of the patients.
