What Causes Back and Neck Pain?
There are many causes of back and neck pain but, most commonly, pain is related to one of three things:
- A painful disc
- Pressure on nerves or spinal cord
- Joint pain in the back of the spine
Sometimes, conservative measures may help, but rarely do they solve the problem—acting instead like a band-aid and limiting pain for a short period of time. When these efforts don’t work, surgeons often recommend some type of surgery, often fusion which has very poor outcomes.
During Lumbar Fusion operations, surgeons take out most of a disc they assume to be causing pain and replace it with bone. There is a long, painful recovery period and often the pain does not resolve. So what is a patient to do when conservative measures fail and outcomes are so poor?
He goes above and beyond what most physicians would do to find the best solution for you. I just can’t say enough about Dr. Daniel and the respect I have for him.
Effective Treatment Options with Stem Cell
Regenerative Medicine Can help back pain and neck pain resistant to typical treatments. The exciting thing about the regenerative approach is that there is NO SURGERY, no recovery period, and the treatment has the potential to “fix” the problem, rather than mask it.
There is unquestionable evidence that stem cell has the potential to heal spinal problems, just as it has been shown to heal major joint arthritic issues. New studies are ongoing at present, most notably studies testing whether stem cell, or prp, injected into a painful disc, can resolve pain and increase mobility. The early results are promising. Additionally, Kevin Pauzza has published data showing that prp combined with fibrin to seal the disc, can relieve back pain—but the disc is not always the cause of pain.
Golf legend, Jack Nicklaus had stem cell treatments for the small joints in his spine, after failing steroid injections. He professes to have obtained good relief of his back pain with these injections.
Regenerative Medicine can help patients with back and neck pain who are trying to avoid surgery. Besides having the potential to relieve pain and improve function, STEM CELL actually can fix the problems!
