Low back pain affects more than two-thirds (⅔) of American adults and is the leading cause of disability and missed work time throughout the world. The pain can be acute, or persist chronically over time with many factors contributing to the pain. The American people spend over 50 billion dollars annually for medical care related to low back pain, with 37% of the people receiving no professional care at all. This enormous problem continues to grow and impact people’s lives, families, and activities.

Causes of Low Back Pain

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.
PRP / Stem Cell Therapy Low Back Pain
Platelet Rich Plasma and Stem Cell Therapy are regenerative medicine treatments that we use at our Gilbert, AZ clinic for low back pain. The treatment involves taking a small sample of the patient’s own blood (60 mls), centrifuging, and then extracting the platelets from the other components of the blood. Once the platelets are extracted and concentrated, we use a special cellular technique to activate the cells. This increases growth factor release and allows the cells to stay localized at the intended injection site. Stem Cells can be 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. We also treat the supporting ligaments of the low back to provide further stability and structural integrity to the joint.
