Stem Cell Therapy for Back Pain
Regenesis Stem Cell Center offers state-of-the-art bone marrow stem cell therapy to comprehensively address back pain.
Dr. Charles Lee of Regenesis Stem Cell Center offers state-of-the-art bone marrow stem cell therapy to comprehensively address back pain. Our relatively safe and effective therapy has successfully provided relief for patients with degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, arthritis, bone spurs, and sciatica. Back injuries and spinal degradation can be incredibly debilitating. Most standard treatments are aimed at symptoms without addressing the underlying pathology. In fact, many medications may worsen the underlying disease and cause more damage. Stem cell therapy provides a solution that improves mobility and decreases pain without invasive, risky surgery. Our patients choose stem cell therapy with Regenesis Stem Cell Center to address their back pain because they want to stop and even reverse the degeneration that is the source of their discomfort.

Stem Cell Therapy Addresses Back Pain at the Source
Back pain is very common. One of the most prevalent causes of back pain is degeneration of the ligaments and cartilage that connect and cushion the vertebrae. With aging, small “wear and tear” injuries occur to our connective tissues and spinal discs. These injuries are additive and may result in arthritis, bone spurs, and accelerated degradation, which can, in turn, lead to low back pain and sciatica, stiffness, weakness, numbness, and even permanent nerve damage with loss of function. At Regenesis, we use your own stem cells to trigger your body’s healing processes at the source of your back pain. Our stem cell therapy can relieve back pain and reverse some disc degeneration and prevent some situations that may result in permanent damage to the spine.
The Advantages of Treating Back Pain with Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy addresses underlying spinal degeneration by utilizing your body’s own healing mechanisms. It is much less invasive than spinal surgery with no anesthesia, no downtime, and a much quicker recovery time. Traditional treatments such as exercise, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, steroid injections, and ultimately surgery have been the mainstay of medical solutions for back pain. A surgeon may even decline to offer their patient surgical options because of the complications of working on the spine. These patients are often referred to a pain clinic and many end up on long-term opioids.
Dr. Charles Lee works closely with many spine surgeons and often will arrange for you to have a surgical consultation if he feels this option should be pursued further. However, stem cell therapy may be an attractive first option to improving decreased mobility from back pain, or it can be used alongside traditional treatments for back pain to speed healing.
Who Should Consider Stem Cell Therapy for Back Pain?
If you have regular, often serious back pain or you are concerned about degeneration or injury in your back nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments, or spine, you should consider stem cell therapy. Your current treatment plan may not be easing your pain, or maybe a complicated surgical procedure is raising concerns for you. If you want a relatively safe, effective option for healing your back pain, you should consult with Dr. Lee about stem cell therapy.
What to Expect from Stem Cell Therapy for Back Pain at Regenesis
Dr. Lee will conveniently perform your stem cell therapy at the Regenesis Stem Cell Center in Huntsville, Alabama, without the need to go to a hospital. Since the spinal column and vertebrae in your back contain crucial components of your complicated nervous system, finding an exact diagnosis is critical. Before moving ahead with your stem cell therapy, Dr. Lee will perform an extensive review of your medical history, conduct an independent medical examination, and consult state-of-the-art imagery and ultrasound to pinpoint your body’s damaged or inflamed areas. Then we will develop a comprehensive and personalized procedure plan for you.
If you choose stem cell therapy as part of your procedure plan, the first step on the day of your procedure will be to prepare your own stem cells and platelet-rich plasma. Your stem cells form at conception, and they are the source of every different kind of cell in the body. Because we are tapping into the body’s process for self-healing and regeneration, our stem cell therapy uses your entire entourage of bone marrow cells including mesenchymal stem cells (MSC’s), a specific type that can divide into a variety of important cells including muscle, bone, tendon, ligament, fat, and cartilage. Your own bone marrow provides a robust source of these mesenchymal stem cells. Additionally, our stem cell therapy includes using platelet-rich plasma concentrated from your blood. The abundant growth factors released by these platelets stimulate healing and signal stem cells to activate in injured or damaged tissue and joints.
To begin your stem cell therapy, with oral or IV sedation, Dr. Lee will use a local anesthetic to gently remove your stem cell-rich bone marrow. In our lab, we then concentrate the stem cells and remove them from the collected sample. While we process the stem cells, which take about two hours, you wait comfortably in our clinic. When the process is finished, Dr. Lee will give you additional IV sedation. Then, using real-time fluoroscopy and ultrasound, he will inject your live stem cells and platelet-rich plasma into the exact areas identified in your procedure plan as the source of your back pain. Very often, in addition to injecting specific areas of your back, a microvascular tissue infusion is performed. The inflamed areas in your body strongly attract the stem cells and enable the healing process to repair areas that are impossible to reach with a standard injection.
The stem cell therapy injections take about 30 to 60 minutes to complete. The body's natural healing and regenerative capacity are revved up by the live stem cells and platelet-rich plasma. You can expect to go home and resume your normal daily activity. There is no downtime and no long rehabilitation stay. While it takes about three to six months for injured cartilage or tissue to repair itself, pain relief may begin much sooner.
