It is estimated 31 million Americans will experience low back pain during their lifetime. In fact, back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work and the leading cause of disability worldwide. For many people, back pain is a simple annoyance that comes and goes. For others, it’s debilitating and drastically affects an individual’s overall quality of life and well-being. While there are numerous different over-the-counter and prescription pain medications on the market aimed at treating back pain, these are not long-term solutions. Some of the most common causes of back pain - especially amongst active Americans - are disc herniations, poor posture, obesity, and psychological stress. Usually, the pain is relatively minor. But when this is not the case and the pain is more severe, it can be difficult to find relief.
At Texas Partners Healthcare Group, we strive to offer you services and solutions that will help you avoid surgery. We understand many people think surgery is the only option when they learn they have degenerative disc disease or other problems with the spinal structure, but this is not the case. In recent years, stem cell therapy has become one of the most effective forms of treatment for widespread back pain. Our doctors believe stem cell therapy is the key to finding relief from back pain. Spine surgery is invasive and difficult to recover from, which is why we are so dedicated to offering alternative therapies that will help you avoid spine surgery.
STEM CELLS FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Stem cells are the body’s natural healer, working overtime to restore and regenerate various aspects of our complex systems. This is why it only makes sense that stem cell therapy is a great pain management option. Individuals suffering from conditions such as degenerative disc disease and disc herniation have experienced profound relief thanks to stem cell therapy. When disc degeneration is present, it means the discs are weakened and at risk of tearing, and they are no longer providing the necessary support for the spine. If left untreated, this can lead to herniation (a rupture of the disc). Current treatments for disc degeneration and herniation include opioids, which pose many dangers and side effects, and surgery, which are invasive and require down time.
However, at Texas Partners Healthcare Group we offer stem cell and regenerative therapy for back pain. These injections can be quite beneficial for patients, helping the body repair itself and restore its natural function. Stem cells have many great qualities, including reducing the pain and inflammation associated with the common back conditions mentioned. Not only is stem cell and regenerative therapy very effective in treating chronic back pain, but it is a minimally invasive option that can repair the damaged disc or facet joint, restore function, rehydrate the disc, and eventually alleviate chronic pain.
If you would like to learn more about how we use stem cell and regenerative therapy to treat back pain and common conditions of the spine, please contact one of the Texas Partners Healthcare Group locations in Allen, Flower Mound, Frisco, Dallas, or McKinney today to schedule an appointment.
