Low back pain is a very common presentation in family medicine and primary care clinics. To make the proper diagnosis, a doctor must take a thorough case history, complete several orthopedic physical examinations, and in many cases order x-ray and MRI imaging. For less severe pain, conservative care such as rest, ice / heat, and over the counter medications may be effective. Typically, NSAIDS such as Ibuprofen or Tylenol are used initially. For more severe pain or pain that is unresponsive to conservative care, medications will be utilized. These would include; muscle relaxers, anti-depressants, and opioid-based narcotic medications. Steroid injections and physical therapy may be considered as well by certain doctors. The last option available for low back pain is surgery. The surgical procedures are quite varied depending on the condition and level of pain and discomfort. The results of surgery can be good or mixed, with some patients needing follow up procedures and medications.
Stem Cell Therapy Low Back Pain
Platelet Rich Plasma and Stem Cell Therapy are regenerative medicine treatments that are commonly used for low back pain. The treatment involves taking a small sample of the patient’s own blood, centrifuging, and then extracting the platelets from the other components of the blood. Stem cells can be taken from the patients body and added into the PRP solution for enhanced regeneration of connective tissue and increased cellular recruitment. The PRP / Stem Cell solution is injected into the damaged structures of the low back. The aim of the treatment is to restore structural strength and functionality of the sacroiliac joint, facet joints, muscles and tendons. Best results are seen by treating the supporting ligaments of the low back as well to provide further stability and structural integrity to the joint.
