Back and Neck Pain (with and without arm or leg pain)

 

Back and neck pain with or without extremity pain are often a result of multiple confounding factors. Frequently, there is an initial injury of the spine, such as a fall or a car accident, or faulty posture and body mechanics that start the degenerative process. An inadequate diet, lack of exercise, stress and exposures to toxins can increase body inflammation and prevent proper healing. Some people have conditions such as hypermobility or weak bones and ligaments that make their spine vulnerable to injury. During the injury and the degenerative process, many structures within and around the spine, such as discs, ligaments, joint capsules, muscles and fascia become weak and degenerated. This results in an unstable spine, chronic spinal inflammation, nerve damage and muscle weakness, thus promoting further degeneration, pain and disability.

A comprehensive treatment strategy that addresses all the contributing factors can provide best results:

  • Regenerative Medicine Injections (Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Prolotherapy) used to stimulate healing of the above mentioned structures
  • Physical Therapy (such as Pilates) to strengthen and re-educate the muscles and ligaments
  • Anti-inflammatory Diet with adequate nutrients to support the healing process
  • Energy Modalities such as low level laser and PEMF to further support tissue healing

Below are some of the spinal conditions that can benefit from comprehensive Regenerative Medicine mentioned above:

  • Muscle and Ligament Sprain
  • Muscle Imbalance
  • Disc Tear and Disc Herniation
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Scoliosis
  • Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Pain
