According to expert estimation, 80 percent of the world’s population will experience back pain at some point in life. Back pain ranges from a dull, constant ache to a sudden sharp pain. In addition to tradition procedures to alleviate back pain, OPTIMAL Pain and Regenerative Medicine now offers Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections and stem cell-like regenerative therapies.
Pain can occur in any part of the spine and be caused by a number of anatomical bodies in the spine. The first step in treating back pain is to determine the origination of the pain, where it radiates and what activities increase or decrease pain for the patient. OPTIMAL Pain and Regenerative Medicine has many conservative treatment options for patients seeking to replace or delay spine surgery.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) have become popular alternatives to traditional spine injections. These treatments take advantage of the body’s natural healing abilities by using the patient’s own blood components to heal damaged tissue. Both PRP and BMAC can provide back pain relief to patients with degenerative disc disease, bulging discs, spondylosis, and sacroiliac joint pain or facet joint pain.
