Back pain is one of the most common complaints among Americans. While for most people, this pain is temporary, for too many it becomes a chronic part of their lives. When a solution for pain relief finally arrives, it seems like the sun shines brighter and life gets better. We are very pleased to help many of our patients recover from back pain.
In our quest to provide the very best treatment options for chronic pain and disability, we have researched and invested in the best medical technologies available. We offer a rich selection of therapies that enhance your body’s ability to recover from back pain.
Identifying Causes of Back Pain
Developing the right treatment plan to resolve your problem begins with a careful examination and diagnosis of the source of your pain. We then select from the effective treatment options available to bring you relief and healing. Depending on your pain causes, we may recommend stem cell therapy, PRP, spinal decompression or other customized treatment plans.
Stem cells are called “mother cells.” They get this name because they can develop into any type of cell needed to heal injured or inflamed tissue. Muscle tears, ligament damage and inflammation respond to the healing power of these cells. While our own bodies make stem cells, we create fewer of them as we age and aged stem cells are less effective than young vibrant cells. Therefore, we utilize stem cells ethically sourced from umbilical cord tissue or amniotic fluid so we can provide the most powerfully healing cells available.
We may recommend combining stem cells with another remarkable healing procedure: platelet-rich plasma. Platelets are the most active healing components of your own blood. We will take a sample of your blood and concentrate the platelets. This concentration is then returned to an area of pain to support even greater healing.
More Back Pain Treatments
Chiropractic adjustments: For a back to be pain-free, the vertebrae must be flexible and in good alignment. Gentle chiropractic adjustments restore proper alignment and mobility to each joint and correct the curve of the spine.
Class IV Laser: Our Class IV laser sends healing wavelengths of light deep into the body to accelerate healing and relieve pain symptoms. In just a few treatments, patients often see a significant change.
Spinal decompression: This unique treatment can make a dramatic difference in cases of chronic pain and can be directed toward either neck or lower back pain. A special table in our office alternately stretches and releases the cervical (neck area) or lumbar (low back) spine. With each stretch, healing fluids flood into the disc spaces between vertebrae, hydrating, soothing and healing discs. Stubborn, chronic pain can finally yield to this treatment.
Physical rehabilitation: Using our extensive training and experience, we plan physical rehab programs for many of our patients. Stretching and strengthening motions are vital additions to a recovery plan.
