Back Pain Treatment

If you suffer from chronic back pain then, depending on the cause, you may benefit from non-surgical stem cell and/or regenerative medicine injections.

Can stem cells treat back pain?

A study published last year (2015) in the scientific journal Stem Cells entitled reported that patients suffering from chronic back pain due to degenerative disc disease who were treated by injecting their own bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) into their lumbar discs experienced significant pain reduction 12 months after treatment.

Percutaneous injection of autologous bone marrow concentrate significantly reduces lumbar discogenic pain through 12 months

CONCLUSION: Statistically significant improvement in pain scores and impairment was demonstrated in 21 of 26 patients, with the most dramatic improvement in patients with higher CFU-F concentrations. Rehydration of the discs in eight of twenty patients according to MRI in conjunction with sustained pain relief through 12 months represents promise for the use of this regenerative medicine approach.

Back Procedures Include

Below are common back procedures we perform at RMI. Please contact us if you have any questions.

  • Facet Joint Injections – Injections into the small joints located along the side of each vertebrae on either side of the spine. Multiple injections are usually done depending upon how many levels are affected.

  • Epidural Injections– Injections into the epidural space, which is right outside of the membrane that protects your spinal cord to improve spinal stenosis or spinal disc herniation.
  • Intradiscal injections– Injections directly into the discs
  • Para Spinal Muscle Injections – Injections into the muscles around the spine
  • Sacroiliac Joint Injections– Injections into the joints that connect the bottom of the spine with the pelvis on either side
