Back Pain

What causes back pain?

The primary cause of back pain changes as you get older. Younger adults usually suffer soft tissue injuries. By comparison, older adults are more likely to develop back pain due to conditions such as:

  • Herniated disc
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Osteoarthritis leading to bone spurs
  • Spinal stenosis

These conditions cause back pain when they place pressure on nerves in the spinal cord.

Will I develop symptoms in addition to back pain?

In addition to the pain that affects your back and limits your movement, you may develop other symptoms from a compressed nerve. When nerves are pinched, you can feel pain, tingling, and numbness along the length of the affected nerve.

Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is compressed at the base of the spine. As a result, patients develop excruciating pain that radiates down through their leg. In severe cases, a pinched nerve also causes muscle weakness.

What is the treatment for back pain?

Chronic back pain doesn’t respond well to most medications, but you can find relief with the multimodal treatment options available at ReGen Pain & Wellness. Dr. Smigiel offers several effective therapies, including:

Chiropractic care

One of the best-known chiropractic techniques, spinal manipulation, alleviates back pain by realigning the spine, relieving pressure on nerves, and restoring blood flow that supports natural healing.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections

PRP is made by drawing a sample of your blood, then centrifuging the blood to separate platelets from the other blood components. After Dr. Smigiel injects the platelets into the area causing your back pain, the platelets release growth factors that reduce inflammation and stimulate tissue regeneration that heals the underlying problem.

Stem cell exosome injections

Stem cells release exosomes, which contain substances known to accelerate healing and trigger new cell growth. Dr. Smigiel can inject concentrated exosomes to help relieve your back pain.

Neural prolotherapy

Dr. Smigiel injects medical grade dextrose just below the skin, where it facilitates healing of inflamed and injured nerves.

Physical therapy

Physical therapy includes numerous techniques, such as massage, active and passive exercise, therapeutic ultrasound, and nerve stimulation. Your back is relieved as this type of therapy boosts circulation, reduces inflammation, strengthens muscles, and improves movement.

Functional rehabilitation

When you undergo functional rehabilitation, your customized treatment plan takes you through the training needed to restore optimal mobility and strength.
