Stem Cell Therapy for Back Pain in North Augusta, SC

Stem Cell Therapy for Back Pain in North Augusta, SC

Back pain can occur in a number of ways. It can be dull or sharp, local, or spread over a large muscle group. Back pain can be experienced as muscle spasms, or numbness in the leg that extends below the knee.

Back pain is defined as acute if it goes away within a couple of weeks. Some conditions may linger for longer periods of time and become chronic. If you're interested in treating your back pain with stem cell therapy, please call (803) 232-7554 or contact John Stavrakos online.

Back Injuries

The back supports much of the body's weight. This makes it highly susceptible to injuries. A simple lifting of an object done improperly could result in a strain or hyperextension. When coupled with other conditions such as depression or stress, lower back pain can linger even longer.

Back strain can cause a disc in your spinal column to rupture or bulge, a condition known as a herniated disc. This bulging disc can then put pressure on a nerve leading to pain in other parts of your body, even impairing bodily functions.

Back Pain Causes

As we age, our bone strength and muscle flexibility decreases. In regards to the back, these conditions make it easier for an injury to occur. Conditions such as arthritis or osteoporosis can contribute to the weakening of the spine.

Additionally, the discs that act as cushions between the vertebrae lose fluid over time, and don't protect the bones as well.

Some of the causes of back pain brought about by a condition you were born with. Some of these include:

  • Spinal stenosis: A gradual narrowing of the tube in your spinal column that holds all of the nerves in your back.
  • Spondylitis: Chronic infections or inflammations that develop and cause stiffness in the joints of the spine.
  • Scoliosis: Abnormal curvature of the spine.

Other causes of back pain include:

  • Poor posture
  • Obesity
  • Viral infections
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Buildup of scar tissue from previous injuries

If you think your back pain is caused by any of the above issues, please call (803) 232-7554 or contact John Stavrakos online.

Back Pain Diagnosis

If pain in your back is beginning to affect the quality of your life, keeping you from doing the things you love, please call (803) 232-7554 or contact John Stavrakos online.

You will begin your visit with a consultation to talk about any factors that may be contributing to your condition including your health history, physical activities, and the type of pain you are experiencing.

The doctor may perform a physical exam to monitor your range of motion. In cases of chronic pain, an X-ray, CT scan, or MRI may be necessary to seek out internal factors.

Back Pain Treatment

Treatment of back pain may involve a combination of simple at-home remedies such as ice, heat, and rest, over the counter pain killers, or muscle relaxing back pain medications. For cases of chronic back pain, your doctor may recommend orthopedic back surgery.

Many people are plagued with lower back pain that is actually arthritis in the spine. There are a number of forms of arthritis that cause stiffness, pain, and inflammation along the spine and in joints. In an outpatient procedure taking approximately three hours, our practice employs an investigative procedure that harvests and redeploys your stem cells close to inflamed or damaged areas along your spine.
