Neck and back pain can in certain cases be efficiently managed through Regenerative Treatment. The Regenerative Treatment for neck and back pain is a non-invasive technique to alleviate symptoms. The treatment is 100% natural and minimally invasive.
Neck and back pain is the leading cause for absence from work. It is a debilitating condition. Most of us experience backache at some point in our lives. Especially, among people who are physically active. The pain is usually minor, but when it becomes severe, it can be unmanageable. Backache and neck pain are mostly caused by inflammation of the soft tissue. Sometimes, the back and neck pain can be so severe that, performing daily chores become very difficult. In many instances, the mobility also gets restricted because of the pain.
What are the most common causes for neck and back pain?
The major causes of neck and back pain are the following:
Trauma is one of the leading causes of backache. Traumatic backaches usually involve an impact or jolt that shifts the spine or surrounding musculoskeletal structures.
Traumatic injuries affecting back is mostly caused by car accidents or injury while playing a sport. Soft tissue inflammation around the spine is seen in cases of traumatic backache. The backache caused due to soft tissue trauma starts as acute (lasts for six weeks or less) and can be manageable through proper rest. If not managed properly this can lead to chronic back or neck pain
Another common cause of backache is poor posture. Back and neck pain is very common among people who stand or sit for long hours. As result, of sitting and standing for long hours the muscles of the back and neck tighten causing painful muscle spasms. Therefore, it is very important to adopt proper postural practice.
Anomalies in bones and muscles like, bone spurs, herniated disc or scoliosis also cause pain in back and neck. The disc that acts like a cushion between the bones of the spine has a soft material inside which when bulges or ruptures can put pressure on nerve endings. However, in some case there is protrusion of the disc without pain.
Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine tends to bend laterally or to the sides.
The degenerative diseases cause degeneration of the disc between the vertebrae thus preventing flexing and bending of the back. In other words, with degeneration of the disc between the vertebrae, the vertebrae rub against each other which is very painful.
Degenerative disease is not very common in young adults. However, older adults are at higher risk. There is no cure for degenerative disease and the patient mostly adapts to a healthy lifestyle to prevent aggravation of symptoms.
Osteoarthritis which mostly affects the lower back can cause narrowing of the space around the spinal cord causing spinal stenosis.
Muscle and ligament strain
Regular lifting of heavy weight or a sudden awkward movement is enough to strain the back muscles and ligaments. Therefore, constant strain on the back can also cause painful muscle spasm. There is throbbing and pulsating pain at the affected area. But application of hot or cold compress usually alleviates symptoms.
Who are most likely to be affected by back and neck pain?
People who are at higher risk of developing back and neck pain are:
- Older adults. The risk of having back pain increases in adults who are more than 30 years.
- Lack of exercise. Therefore, unused and weak muscles of the back and abdomen can cause backache.
- Excess body weight. Overweight causes extra stress on the back.
- Improper lifting of heavy weights.
- Smoking. Smoking causes decrease in blood flow in the lower spine. As a result, the lower spine disks do not get proper nutrition and make it prone to degeneration.
What the Regenerative Treatment options are for back and neck pain?
Regenerative Treatment is proving to be highly efficient in treating injuries of:
- Muscles and
The Regenerative Treatment is a novel approach to treat various injuries with minimal invasive technique. Unlike, conventional treatment it takes minimal recovery time. Minimal rehabilitation is required after Regenerative Treatment to ensure proper functioning of the joints.
What are the benefits of regenerative treatment?
Considering, the several treatment options available out there, one will definitely wonder about the benefits Regenerative Treatment provides. Unlike other traditional treatments, Regenerative Treatment is a same day procedure with no risk of rejection. The recovery is very swift and with minimal worry and once the procedure is done, you can go home within few hours after the injections.
Other benefits of Regenerative Treatment are:
- Minimal invasive procedure.
- No post-operative scars or lesions.
- Minimal rehabilitation is required after the procedure.
What to expect after the Regenerative Treatment procedure?
Regenerative Treatment is an orthobiological treatment that needs some time to repair damaged or injured cells in the affected area. The injection takes some time to work. Typically, it takes around thirty days for a patient to notice improvement.
Just after the treatment you may complain of mild pain. The pain can be felt for a day or two. But the pain is easily manageable, in many cases. Most often rest will help to alleviate the pain. However, for some patients pain-killers are suggested to manage pain.
Anti-inflammatories and growth factors are naturally released as part of the treatment. With effects lasting anything from 2 to 3 months. Thus, helping reduce inflammation of the affected area.
In many cases, a repeat treatment may be needed and this varies according to type and extent of injury and damage. It is always advised to wait for at least 3 moths for repeat treatment to allow for proper assessment of progress.
Proper examination and review of scans are needed to determine whether or not you are a candidate for these treatments.
