Stem Cell and PRP Spine Injections
The spinal column is our body’s most complicated and important skeletal structure. The complex nature of the spine and its importance to nearly every movement we make means that the origins of spine pain are often misidentified.
Our experience in regenerative treatments for spine pain allows us to address as many factors as possible to gain insight into the true cause of the problem. The minimally invasive and targeted application of our Biologic solutions—Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) and Stem Cell Treatments—aid us in working to identify the specific cause of spinal pain. We can then focus our efforts, which also include improving general wellness and fitness levels along with successful weight loss techniques, to offer you the safest solutions. This approach utilizes your own natural growth factors or stem cells to treat bulging or herniated discs, degenerative conditions in the spine, and other back and neck conditions that cause pain. These back injections can hep you avoid back surgery while getting you on the road to recovery quickly.
Spine Injections can help with the following conditions:
For years, the medical establishment has put an emphasis on reducing inflammation and employed liberal use of anti-inflammatory drugs, typically NSAID drugs like ibuprofen and naproxen and or steroids. We now know that inhibiting or slowing your body’s natural inflammatory response slows healing by preventing naturally occurring repair cells from reaching your injury. Our targeted Biologic treatments are designed to provoke an inflammatory response while increasing the number of healing cells in the injured area.
Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments
Used in maxillofacial and plastic surgery since the early 1980s, the technique has been developed recently to aid in the treatment of professional athletes, recovering from injuries. We draw your own blood and concentrate the platelets to 4 to 5 times beyond normal and, using ultrasound to guide us, inject them precisely into injured areas. The treatment also activates stem cells in the injured area calling them into action. The procedure can be used in combination with stem cell treatments or alone.
Stem Cell Treatments
Adult stem cells are cells from your own body that are essentially “un-programmed” meaning that they can turn into other cell types (differentiate). They are naturally occurring cells that are can renew themselves and turn into other cells (differentiate). They are inside your body and are an essential component of the healing process. We know areas of the body where more stem cells occur, bone marrow for example. We are able to harvest these cells from your own tissues in high concentration and direct them with exact precision to the injured area.
