Can Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cells Help My Back Pain?

Regenerative medicine is considered the way of the future by many experts and with good reason. It leverages the body’s natural ability to heal itself by stimulating soft-tissue growth and encouraging healing, making it a more attractive alternative than more invasive treatments. For the right conditions, it’s proving to our medical team to be a highly effective as a treatment for neck, back, and joit pain all together. If you’re in Sioux City, IA, or anywhere nearby, we’re ready to help you at Multicare Health Clinic.


How Are Stem Cells Used to Treat Back Pain?

When traditional treatments aren’t quite the right fit, alternative medicine can introduce promising new options to the mix. Therapy that leverages the natural regenerative power of stem cells gives back pain sufferers a better way to treat their issues and experience genuine healing. Unlike surgery or prescription medications, regenerative medicine addresses back pain at its cause.

All inclusive, most injections have an amazing matrix, including Cytokines, Growth Factors, Proteins, Collagen, Elastin, Fibronectin, & Hyaluronic Acid which are equally if not more important than Mesenchymal Stem Cells. Due to this comprehensive matrix, these regenerative medicine products are not dependent upon the metabolic activity of living Mesenchymal Stem Cells for their primary function.

Therapy starts with the aspiration of the patient’s own stem cells from their bone marrow, or uses ethically donated cells derived from umbilical cords. The cells are then injected into the damaged or compromised area of the back sometimes with a portion of platelet-rich plasma. The plasma supports the stem cells as they work to heal the injury, first by reducing inflammation and then by facilitating new soft tissue growth.

Regenerative medicine of this type can result in significant healing, if not a full recovery in time. Often, one simple treatment is all that’s needed to produce solid results. However, additional platelet-rich plasma injections may be given to some patients as they continue the healing process.

Is Regenerative Medicine Right for You?

Alternative medicine treatments using stem cells are worth looking into for anyone who’d like a healthier, lower-risk alternative to medication, surgery, or both. Regenerative medicine is considered a particularly good fit for back, spine, and joint issues like the following.

  • Tendonitis or injuries that affect the tendon.
  • Sports-related injuries.
  • Arthritis and other chronic joint conditions.
  • Chronic pain, including neck pain, muscle pain, lower back pain, and more.
