Almost anything can cause back pain. Part of the reason is all of the stress we put on our backs. Weight from the upper body, prolonged sitting, sports, being overweight, and poor flexibility all can put added stress on the back. And at some point, all of this stress adds up and at some point will cause back pain.
It is not unusual to hear our patients say they have tried all kinds of treatments to no avail. That’s why they are now in our office. They have tried stretching, yoga, pilates, massage, and all kinds of therapies. But their pain persists. And it is a good possibility that surgery has been recommended. But once surgery is done, it cannot be undone. So, many people look for an alternative.
Regenerative Orthopedics is an effective, non-surgical alternative for back pain relief for most musculoskeletal conditions that cause back pain. Prolotherapy, one form of Regenerative Orthopedics, looks at the cause of back pain, and not just the effect. Prolotherapy stimulates repair. It’s not just a bandaid to cover up back pain. But rather, it gets to the root of the problem, like tendon and ligament injury. And it repairs the injury, which results in the pain relief you seek.
When you want to get to the root of the problem, Regenerative Medicine options like Prolotherapy, PRP, and Stem Cell Therapy, are not just effective, but they are non-surgical treatment options that relieve your back pain, and get you back to doing what you love.
