Treating Back Pain With Regenerative Injection Therapy

Modern medicine has given us many positive options for treating back pain, but perhaps one of the most innovative and promising among them is regenerative injection therapy. While this approach was developed and came into use decades ago, it only recently began enjoying a wider acceptance in the medical community as positive results have been documented. Various forms of regenerative injection therapy have been used for years in the treatment of injured joints, ligaments and difficult-to-heal wounds, but it’s also a viable option for the treatment of spine issues and back pain — especially when other treatments aren’t yielding desirable results.

How Regenerative Injection Therapy Works

The concept behind this approach is simple: To accelerate the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The human body actually has remarkable self-healing capabilities, but frequently these processes get delayed or interrupted by various factors. Regenerative injection therapy draws regenerative cells and substances from the patient’s own body, concentrates them, then injects them at the site of pain or injury. This prompts a temporary inflammation that kickstarts the regeneration process. As a result, many patients enjoy greater pain relief and quicker recovery than they would have otherwise.
