At OrthoRegen®, we specialize in treating the joints and the spine. Low back pain is one of the conditions we see quite often. People who come to our clinic typically have already tried various treatments that did not achieve the results they sought, leaving them with a reduced quality of life due to the pain and loss of function they experience. Therefore, they are seeking a back pain specialist and a treatment that works to bring relief.
In many cases, our Regenerative Orthopedics specialists can help low back pain sufferers return to the quality of life they desire, with less pain and increased function. If you are tired of taking anti-inflammatories, supplements, cortisone injections, and other remedies and are looking for a solution to your back pain, we believe we can help.
Regenerative Orthopedics is a non-surgical treatment that repairs the soft tissue of the joints and spine by naturally and effectively strengthening the structures involved and eliminating the pain. Regenerative Orthopedics stimulates the body to repair the painful area and develops new healthy and strong tissue.
Regenerative Orthopedics are effective treatment options that do not require surgery. It’s a great, beneficial treatment that is proven to provide pain relief and repair of the injured soft tissues of the joints and spine. As with any treatment, it is vital to choose an experienced practitioner. Peter A. Fields, MD, DC, has successfully treated back pain patients for many years. He is a joint and back pain specialist who gets results.
The Journal of Orthopedic Surgery and Research says, “Clinicians have to choose from drugs with very modest effects and variable risk profiles. Hence, the widespread recommendations to use pharmacological options as a last resort. The benefits are just not there to justify the routine prolonged use of any given drug in nonspecific chronic low back pain: this is a major challenge, and it is often hard to accept for clinicians and patients . . . ”
If you have spent months or even years trying to get relief from your back pain, we recommend that you seek out a treatment that repairs the underlying issue, commonly lumbar instability. Other common therapies fail to attain the relief sought because they do not address the root cause of lumbar instability.
There are many reasons for low back pain. Conditions such as herniated discs, stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and others. However, the root cause behind these conditions is lumbar instability.
Lumbar instability is caused by weakened and damaged ligaments. Once the ligaments become damaged, either by sudden trauma or prolonged wear and tear, the vertebrae begin to move abnormally.
Ligaments are bands of connective tissue that hold bone to bone. Spinal ligaments are primary stabilizers of the vertebrae of the spine. When spinal ligaments can no longer hold the adjacent vertebrae in their correct place, spinal instability becomes an issue. The weakened ligaments allow for excess mobility/motion in the spine. Spinal instability is the most common cause of unresolved low back pain.
The body will respond to this instability and attempt to stabilize the area. The result is muscle spasms, swelling, and eventual bone spurs (arthritis).
At OrthoRegen®, we use Regenerative Orthopedics to treat lumbar instability. The various regenerative treatments, including Prolotherapy, PRP, and stem cells, can be directed toward the pain sources, often the ligaments.
Prolotherapy strengthens lumbar vertebral ligaments and prevents progressive degeneration. Researchers in the Journal of Spine Disorders demonstrated that Prolotherapy was effective in patients with chronic low back pain who failed to respond to conservative care. (2)
Hauser et al. also found that Prolotherapy can be effective for chronic back pain due to spinal instability. (3) Prolotherapy strengthens the ligaments and eliminates the back pain problem.
At OrthoRegen®, our back pain specialists have effectively treated many patients suffering from low back pain and the associated conditions that occur due to spinal instability. We would love to help you too!
