Stem Cell Therapy for the Lower Back

NeoGenix specializes in non-surgical low back pain treatmentStem cell therapy is a natural, non-surgical alternative treatment for low back pain relief from arthritis, sciatica, and other degenerative low back conditions. We also commonly treat acute conditions resulting from recent soft tissue injuries, such as back spasms.

Why are people choosing Stem Cell Therapy over Surgery?

  • Out-patient procedure with a local anesthetic only
  • Complications are extremely unlikely
  • Quicker and easier recovery with no downtime

What is Stem Cell Treatment for Lower Back Pain?

Stem cell therapy is a natural treatment for low back injuries and conditions that cause low back pain. Depending on the severity and type of problem, low back pain can be treated with growth factors from Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or stem cells from bone marrow aspirate. At NeoGenix, we will examine your low back, review your imaging, and will determine the best type of non-surgical stem cell treatment for your low back pain or injury.

Is Stem Cell Therapy for Lower Back Pain Effective?

Many patients find relief from pain and stiffness caused by low back injuries or degenerative low back conditions with stem cell treatments. There have been many research studies demonstrating significant improvement in low back pain following stem cell therapy and numerous ongoing studies continuing to evaluate the benefits.

Patients that have received Stem Cell Therapy at NeoGenix have reported:

  • Less pain from Arthritis, Sciatica or Degenerative low back Conditions
  • Reduced Back stiffness
  • Reduced dependency on pain medications
  • Improved low back mobility and range of motion

NeoGenix is also founded by one of the most experienced knee injury treatment doctors in Charlotte, NC, Dr. James Altizer, who has been performing stem cell therapy in North Carolina since January of 2016. Dr. Altizer received expert training from recognized leaders in the regenerative medicine field, including training on bone marrow aspiration with Duke University-affiliated physicians. He has performed thousands of stem cell and growth factor procedures, more than any other medical doctor in the Carolinas.

NeoGenix has a patient success rate of over 94%* with many results lasting for years.

An Alternative to Back Surgery

So over time and after trauma, our joint cartilage and discs start to wear out, sometimes slowly over years and sometimes very quickly over a few months. The only alternative to invasive surgery is stem cell therapy. Do not agree to surgery until you’ve got a second opinion to see whether or not stem cell therapy can help. The less invasive treatment is, the easier and more successful your recovery will be.

Many of the patients who have undergone stem cell treatments for arthritis, sciatica and other degenerative low back conditions have found this minimally invasive procedure to be an excellent alternative to low back fusions, rods, discectomies, or laminectomies.

Stem cell therapy for Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)

Stem cell therapy for Disc Herniation

The spinal disks are the shock absorbers for the spinal column. As we age, the gel in the center of the disks dries out. The outer rim of the disk is like a tire…it’s got circular fibers that help hold the disk’s circular shape. Those fibers can also wear out over time and get brittle. Bad disks can cause back pain in several different ways.

When the shock-absorbing capacity of the disks diminishes, the excess pressure can force the gel inside a disk to push out through the rim, and when this happens, this ‘herniation’ of the disk can press directly on the spinal nerves. This is what happens when spinal disks get old and degenerate. The gel material in the center pushes out of the disk itself and presses directly on the spinal nerves that normally travel right next to the disk.

The pressure on these nerves is what causes the low back pain, and the pain can radiate or travel down the back of the leg as far as the knee or even down to the foot and toes. In early cases, there is only pain and/or numbness/tingling sensations but as the nerve compression gets worse, the patient starts to notice weakness in the leg. They can’t walk up the steps or get out of a chair.

Stem Cell Therapy for Facet Arthritis
At every level of the spine, the vertebral bones are typically spaced apart by a “cushion” called the vertebral disc. This disc resides in the front part of the bony spinal column. Along the back part, where the bones come together, there is a contact point at each level on the left and right side. This contact point where the bones come together creates a joint on each side called the facet joint. This facet joint has cartilage lining the joint and a capsule surrounding the joint, just like any other joint in your body. The purpose of this facet joint is to provide stability and mobility to the spine, especially on bending, extending, and rotation of the spine. Similar to other joints in the body, this joint is susceptible to inflammation and degeneration, a condition referred to as facet arthritis or facet joint disease.
Stem Cell Therapy for Sacroiliac Joint (SI Joint) Pain
Sacroiliitis is an inflammation of one or both of your sacroiliac joints — situated where your lower spine and pelvis connect. Sacroiliitis can cause pain in your buttocks or lower back and can extend down one or both legs. Prolonged standing, stair climbing, running, and putting more weight on one leg than the other can worsen the pain.
Stem Cell Therapy for Radiculopathy & Sciatica
Radiculopathy is the term used to describe the symptoms of pain, numbness, and tingling that can occur when a spinal disk herniates or bulges out and presses directly on the adjacent spinal nerves. The symptoms begin in the low back and radiate or travel down the back of the leg to the knee or even down to the foot and toes. There may be muscle weakness in more severe cases. Pain that radiates from your lower (lumbar) spine to your buttock and down the back of your leg is the hallmark of sciatica. You might feel the discomfort almost anywhere along the nerve pathway, but it’s especially likely to follow a path from your low back to your buttock and the back of your thigh and calf. The pain can vary widely, from a mild ache to a sharp, burning sensation or excruciating pain. Sometimes it can feel like a jolt or electric shock. It can be worse when you cough or sneeze, and prolonged sitting can aggravate symptoms. Usually only one side of your body is affected. Some people also have numbness, tingling or muscle weakness in the affected leg or foot. You might have pain in one part of your leg and numbness in another part.
