Avoid Back or Neck Surgery with Regenexx
Disc herniation causes the disc to put pressure on or irritate the spinal nerve roots or spinal cord leading to pain, numbness, or weakness. Physicians often recommend a high-dose epidural steroid injection that can temporarily help the pain but can cause severe side effects and reduce your body's ability to heal. If this fails, the next course of treatment is usually back or neck surgery that cuts away a portion of the disc, though this approach leaves the disc weaker and more likely to be injured again. The final option is often an extremely invasive spinal fusion in which two discs are joined permanently together with hardware.
How do we help you avoid all of that? During this outpatient procedure, our expert physicians use precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body's natural healing cells into the exact areas of damage around the disc. Best of all, your downtime will be a fraction of surgery, with little to no need for opioid pain medications or time off of work. Call our patient care coordinators today to get started on your path to recovery.
