Spinal pain treatments

Many people throughout North America and the world suffer from severe back pain. And, after seeking medical assistance, have been told that only epidural steroid injections or invasive surgery can bring about a cure.

Steroid epidurals should only be viewed as a short-term relief option because although injecting the medication around the inflamed nerves in the spine can help patients avoid surgery, high doses of steroids can have adverse effects. These epidurals may in fact eventually reduce the body’s ability to heal which will in turn cause tissue degeneration and speed up the need for surgery.

 

Interventional Orthopedics

Regenexx opts for a different approach called Interventional Orthopedics which involves the use of image guidance (fluoroscopy and ultrasound) in order to precisely place high-dose stem cells or platelets from your body into the specific joint structure. Once injected, these cells will get to work on growing into new, healthy tissue. Using your own cells to repair the damage, Interventional Orthopedics offers a non-surgical alternative to treat your pain. It is important to note that licensed Regenxx physicians undergo thousands of hours of training following a standardized protocol process before they can administer Interventional Orthopedics.

Regenexx treatments focus on the true cause of your spinal problems. After identifying the most probable causes of pain, the most ideal treatment is selected, after which the natural healing process can be initiated using the least invasive procedure possible.

 

Orthobiologics

It is the body’s natural function to repair itself. Although, sometimes this isn’t possible due to age, the body’s health or the severity of the injury. Regenexx treatments focus on using your body’s natural healing capacity to repair or lessen damage by focusing treatment on the exact site of your injury. This procedure eliminates the need for surgery. There are various types of treatments available including:
