Commonly Treated Back Injuries
Stem cell therapies have a wide application across multiple areas of back injury. These treatments can help improve back pain, although a physician will generally try to determine the source of the pain first in order to more precisely treat the issue.
Additionally, stem cell therapies can be used to treat facet syndrome, also called osteoarthritis. Similarly, they are also used to relieve symptoms of lumbar arthritis. These therapies also can help with degenerative disc disease, as they can effectively regenerate desiccated discs.
While there may be multiple appropriate stem cell or regenerative therapies for a given condition or injury, which treatment is most appropriate can be determined by the patient and his/her doctor. These procedures are minimally invasive, and many offer improved outcomes compared to surgical interventions and repeated epidural steroid injections.
