Having chronic neck and back pain can be debilitating. When you have neck and back issues that cause chronic pain, it can make all of your muscles tight and uncomfortable, making it difficult to handle everyday tasks. Thankfully, there are some treatments for neck and back pain that could get you back to moving freely.
Causes of Neck and Back Pain
There are many potential causes of neck and back pain. If your issue has not yet been diagnosed, the first step in any treatment process is to determine the cause of the chronic pain. Some common causes of chronic neck and back pain include degenerative disc disease or other spinal disc conditions, as well as the more common arthritis.
When it comes to issues of the spine, it is always best to avoid surgery, if possible. Such surgeries are complex with a risk of a variety of complications and a long recovery time. There are many nonsurgical treatments for chronic neck and back pain, such as physical therapy, steroid injections, acupuncture, and chiropractic care. Yet when none of these treatments relieve the chronic pain, what else can you try?
Enter Stem Cells
Stem cells are the building blocks of all the cells in the body. As such, injecting them into the affected area, such as the spine, signals to the body to adapt the stem cells into healthy cells for the improvement of back and neck disorders. Stem cells boost your body’s own healing power. In fact, the stem cells come from your own body, which means there is no risk of side effects or unfavorable outcomes.
