Back Pain Q & A
What is back pain?
Back pain includes any type of pain in your upper, middle, or lower back. It can occur due to a variety of degenerative diseases, muscular problems, or chronic inflammatory conditions. While back pain can be the result of something as simple as a muscle strain, it may progressively worsen if you have a more complex problem, such as a herniated disc.
What are the symptoms of back pain?
If you experience back pain, you may experience:
- Dull ache
- Stabbing or shooting pain
- Muscles aches
- Radiating pain down the back of your legs
- Tenderness in the back
Back pain typically worsens when you bend over or lift heavy objects and subsides at rest.
How is back pain handled?
Back pain often worsens without , but anti-inflammatory pain medications and surgical procedures don’t always provide the lasting relief you need to function properly. If you’re tired of masking your pain with medication, SC Stem Cell offers several nonsurgical and regenerative therapies, including:
Regenerative therapy uses stem cells — human cells that have the power to repair damage — to treat injured tissues, muscles, and joints. The SC Stem Cell team injects stem cells directly into the area of your back where you feel pain to reduce inflammation, pain, and scar tissue. Unlike pain medications, which temporarily reduce inflammation and mask your symptoms, stem cell therapy promotes repairs in your back.
Your blood delivers oxygen to tissues throughout your body, but damaged muscles, joints, and tissues require more oxygen to heal. That’s why SC Stem Cell offers hyperbaric chamber therapy. During this innovative treatment, you breathe in pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber or room to repair damage in your back. SC Stem Cell recommends one session a week until you reach 25 to 40 treatments for maximum benefits. For even better results, you can combine this treatment with regenerative therapy.
Massage therapy is a completely noninvasive that relieves pain, improves mobility and flexibility, and reduces stress. SC Stem Cell offers a variety of massage techniques, including Swedish, deep tissue, and lymphatic massages.
