How Stem Cell Disc Therapy Can Reduce Your Back Pain

As one of the most common reasons people visit the doctor, back pain affects nearly 80% of Americans at some point in life. Discomfort can vary in severity—sometimes fading in and out, other times lingering for months or even years. For back pain caused by a traumatic injury or a chronic condition, you want to make sure it is properly treated to avoid long-term discomfort.

There are a variety of causes that trigger back pain, including improper exercise techniques, poor posture, and car accidents—but there are also a variety of treatment solutions that can address your pain.

If your condition is severe enough, you may consider surgery to repair your spinal and joint tissue. However, sometimes invasive surgical procedures aren’t enough to restore your body to its optimal condition.

Stem Cell Disc Therapy: A More Efficient Approach

If you experience back pain—regardless of the cause—stem cell therapy can help your body naturally heal itself. Within weeks, your discomfort will fade or completely disappear, as your body regenerates damaged tissue.

As an alternative to surgery, this minimally invasive treatment is extremely effective for herniated discs, sciatica, and chronic lower back pain and inflammation. After treatment, you may experience slight soreness, but recovery time is normally between six and eight weeks—when you’ll notice a decrease in pain and an increase in mobility.

Wondering how it works? In a session of about 15 minutes, we use stem cells from your blood, bone marrow, or fat tissue to encourage natural healing. The treatment is an outpatient procedure, so you’ll be able to return to your day immediately after the session.
