Learn how PRP in many cases can be an excellent alternative to steroids or back surgery and address the root cause of back pain quickly and naturally.
As a highly-involved part of our body, our back has a fundamental role in a number of daily tasks and activities. Whether you’re bending, lifting, twisting, or standing, your back supports you through each movement with strength and precision. It’s for this reason that back health and painlessness play a huge role in an increased quality of life and ease of function.
Understanding your back pain and what you can do to achieve long-term healing starts with understanding the various components that make up the posterior area. Our back is divided into sections including the cervical spine area, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, and the sacral region. Each section is made up of numerous movement-powering muscles, interlocking vertebrae, discs, nerves, and joints. As the muscles carry out their job of supporting various movements, the discs cushion the vertebrae and joints, while the nerves communicate with the brain. The smooth functioning of the back as a whole depends on the well-being of each of these individual parts as they complete their tasks.
Because the spine supports volumes of weight and movement, the individual parts are susceptible to damage, injury, wear and tear. Simple daily activities become pain-inducing when this damage takes place. Here at New You Stem Cell Center, we commit ourselves to address back pain at the root. Stem Cell Therapy and Stem Cell Activation Procedures, two forms of regenerative medicine practices, are growing in recognition and progress. It’s our priority to make these alternative treatment options accessible for our community, providing each patient with the knowledge they require to start their journey to back pain relief.

How PRP Can Help with Back Pain
So how does platelet-rich plasma help with these conditions? True healing to damaged joints, discs, and muscles occurs when damaged tissue is repaired. PRP treatments are recognized for their capacity to pump weakened areas full of cell-growing proteins that play a role in sparking the regrowth of tissue. The platelet-rich plasma that is taken from the patient’s own blood through a separation process contains a high concentration of growth factors. These growth factors recruit and stimulate other base cells in the body to differentiate into the specialized cells that are lacking in damaged areas. In other words, these recruited cells are activated to become exactly what the body needs for healing.
Unlike conventional treatment options that do what they can to alleviate pain, PRP addresses the underlying cause, leading to long-term healing and relief of the pain-causing condition or injury.
Utilizing PRP as a go-to treatment for back pain allows us to tackle the pain at the root, equipping the body with what it needs to naturally heal itself.
