The spine is a multifunctional anatomical structure that provides shape, motion and protection to our bodies. It is comprised of 24 articulated bones separated by cartilage discs with eight to nine fused bones at the bottom. Whenever there is wear, injury or disease, symptoms range from mild discomfort to crippling pain. Back pain is the most common cause for work disabilities and one of the reasons that we might be forced to abandon a healthy and active lifestyle.
Spine pain symptoms include dull aches, shooting pain, stiffness and limited motion in the neck, back or lower back, inability to stand with proper posture and radiating pain down one or both arms and/or legs. The spine can be injured by improper lifting techniques, accidents, sudden movements or falls. The loss of cartilage in the discs between spinal bones due to age, overuse, poor posture, arthritis, osteoarthritis or degenerative disease may cause symptoms without a previous traumatic incident.
At PRMEDICA we start the healing process with a proper assessment and a correct diagnosis. Then, treatment plans for spine conditions include: stem cells and exosomes injections into the affected segments and/or a high dose Stem Cell IV infusion, ozone therapy and ozonated platelet rich plasma. Stem Cell/Exosome injections are performed by a specialist with local anesthesia under double doppler ultrasound guidance. If your condition can not be treated with our regenerative treatments alone, we offer consultations with a Neurosurgeon to explore additional treatment options.
Here are details of the stem cell procedure for the treatment of degenerative disease of the spine:
