Back, Neck & Spine Pain: Non-surgical Therapy

Have you been told that drugs, steroid injections or surgery are your only options to treat your back pain? LifePlus Stem Cell therapies provide a non-surgical alternative that uses your own cells to repair damage.

Back pain is a fact of life

Almost everyone will suffer from some form of back pain at some point in their lives, especially as we age, with the likelihood increasing with each decade that passes.

So what causes back pain? Wear and tear, natural degeneration, poor posture and lifestyle account for most back pain, on rare occasions it can be due to something more serious like infections, tumours or fractures.

Surgery carries both substantial risks & significant recovery time

For mild to moderate back pain standard treatments mainly include over-the-counter pain relief, physiotherapy and lifestyle modifications.

For more serious and chronic back pain more aggressive intervention may be required, but most carry risks and complications. These include surgery, steroid injections or pain-blocking injections.

Whilst injections are essentially low risk the effects are often short lived, providing pain relief for only a number of months. Surgery can be effective, especially for sciatica, but surgery should be considered as a last resort as it carries substantial risks and long term recovery. Those seeking alternatives to surgery may choose stem cell therapies.

Alternatives to surgery for back & neck pain:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Stem cell therapy
  • Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT®)
  • Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)

Common back, neck and spine conditions include: Muscle injuries, Facet Joint Syndrome, Degenerative Disc Disease, Thoractic spine pain, Lumbar spine pain, Sciatica, Bulging Disc, Continued Pain After Lower Back Surgery, Herniated Disc, Neck Pain, Sacroiliac Joint, ​Spinal Stenosis, Spondylolysis, Torn Disc.

Stem cell therapy for back pain and disc herniations may potentially repair damaged discs or facet joints, restore function, rehydrate the disc, and address chronic pain.
