Neck and back pain are among the most common medical complaints today. Whether caused by a sedentary lifestyle, degenerative condition, sports injury, or overuse, both neck and back pain can get in the way of your day-to-day activities.

If you’re experiencing chronic or debilitating neck or back pain, stem cell therapy is a non-surgical treatment option that can provide you with relief. By stimulating your body’s own repair process, stem cell therapy can regenerate damaged tissue in the neck or back for effective pain management. 

Understanding Stem Cells

Adult stem cells exist in large quantities in the bone marrow and fat cells. These cells can be considered the body’s repairmen, as they have the ability to regenerate into virtually any type of cell. 

The Stem Cell Therapy Process

In stem cell therapy, the patient’s own stem cells are extracted from bone marrow at the back of the pelvis or fat cells from the abdomen. After being concentrated in a centrifuge, the stem cells are injected near the damaged tissue with ultrasound or x-ray guidance. 

Stem Cells for Back and Neck Pain

Stem cell therapy can help with neck and back pain by stimulating the tissue’s repair process in and around the spine. Activated stem cells not only help repair the damage themselves but also prompt the body’s natural healing process. In the weeks and months after the administration of stem cell therapy, the repair of the tissues will continue, with the patient experiencing increasing improvement to pain and function in the area. 

As a versatile treatment, stem cell therapy can be an effective regenerative method for chronic neck and back pain caused by conditions like osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, herniated disc, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, and even spinal fractures that have failed to heal correctly. 

If you’re experiencing chronic neck or back pain, stem cell therapy could help you achieve relief without the need for invasive methods. Contact us today to learn more!
