Our Treated Conditions: Back Pain
If you suffer from the following back conditions, we have information on how regenerative cell therapy can help restore your health and help you live a pain-free life! Read more below.
Regenerative Medicine for Lexington Sufferers
At Millpond Integrative Health and Wellness Center, we specialize in back pain procedures. We have pioneered the industry’s newest proven alternatives to surgery and expensive medications like steroids. Our in-office, same-day procedures will ease your back pain regardless of its cause.
We help with a range of conditions including spondylolisthesis, spinal arthritis, intervertebral disc degeneration, spinal stenosis and herniated discs. Even those with little or no cartilage around their knee have benefited from our procedures at Millpond Integrative Health and Wellness Center.
Millpond Integrative Health and Wellness Center’s revolutionary platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and amniotic regenerative cell therapy procedures help with all the damages and underlying conditions that cause you pain. Our doctors will inject these cells into the target area, and they then work as an immunologically privileged substance to rebuild and strengthen the damaged tissue, which is the cause of back pain.
Regenerative Medicine for Facet Syndrome
Facet syndrome is a condition that affects the small joints between the vertebrae that make up the spine and is one of the most common conditions causing lower back and neck pain. These joints are constantly moving, providing the stability and flexibility needed to walk, sit, turn and bend. Each of these small joints of the neck and spine contains soft tissues and cartilage that absorb shock during these movements, and they are important to protect the bones from rubbing against each other and causing friction. This can cause inflammation and swelling of the joints, headaches and make even slight movements painful.
Facet syndrome has historically been hard to treat, but newer breakthroughs in regenerative medicine offer cutting-edge, advanced procedures. Amniotic regenerative cell therapy is a natural alternative to the risks of medications, steroid injections, and invasive surgery. By using regenerative cells, our staff can target specific areas of pain and inflammation to alleviate pain and trigger an immune response that helps heal damaged tissues. Our non-invasive procedures can be done in a same-day, in-office visit.
Regenerative Medicine for Degenerative Disc Disease
The spine is made up of several vertebrae, separated by soft tissue and cartilage that provides cushioning between the bones. The cartilage between each bone is called a disc, and each disc keeps the bones from rubbing against one another. Disc degeneration occurs when this cartilage wears down or becomes damaged.
If left untreated, disc degeneration can limit mobility and lead to bone spurs and chronic pain. People suffering from back problems no longer have to settle for pain medications, steroid injections or risky surgical procedures. Amniotic regenerative cell therapy is an advanced, non-surgical procedure that rebuilds degenerating discs and tissues. Our staff is experienced in finding the right options that can reduce inflammation and the development of scar tissue so you can feel better faster.
Regenerative Medicine for Lumbar Arthritis
Lumbar arthritis is chronic inflammation in the soft tissues within the joints of the lower back. Cartilage discs that sit between each vertebrae provide support and stability for the constant movement in the back. When the supportive tissues are damaged by injury or begin to deteriorate, painful swelling and inflammation can occur from friction between the bones.
Arthritis can become an ongoing, chronic issue that not only causes pain, stiffness and swelling, but can also limit mobility and the ability to perform daily activities. The use of regenerative medicine techniques can eliminate the inflammation that causes symptoms of lumbar arthritis. Amniotic regenerative cell therapy is a procedure that uses healing cells to target pain areas, reduce inflammation and even generate new growth of supportive soft tissues.
Regenerative Medicine for Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is the degeneration of the protective cartilage that covers the ends of the bones in the joints. It is also known as degenerative arthritis or wear and tear arthritis. The protein that makes up the cartilage degenerates by forming tiny cracks or by flaking. This can eventually result in a loss of cartilage. Once the cartilage is lost, the friction between bones can stimulate spurs or bony growths that form around the joints.
Rather than opting for the traditional treatments, you can visit Millpond Integrative Health and Wellness Center for a non-invasive alternative. Our same-day procedure eliminates the pain, recovery time and risk associated with traditional procedures. Our procedure helps with the underlying damage that causes the pain. Millpond Integrative Health and Wellness Center’s procedure for osteoarthritis typically includes a combination of amniotic regenerative cell therapy and our advanced form of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, which has been fortified and enhanced with extra natural growth factors and cytokines.
Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy
Amniotic regenerative cell therapy is one of the newest and most cutting-edge therapies for chronic joint pain. Amniotic derived regenerative cell therapy offers patients three essential properties for healing and restoring joint health:
- A high concentration of regenerative cells.
- Hyaluronic acid for joint lubrication and movement.
- Anti-inflammatory cytokines and cellular growth factors essential for building new joint tissue.
Since amniotic-derived regenerative cell therapy is not gathered from embryonic stem cells or fetal tissue, there are no ethical issues with the protocol, unlike those of the past.
The amniotic regenerative cell therapy consists of an injection directly into the painful area. The therapy has the potential to actually alter the course of the condition and not simply mask the pain. This therapy has significant potential for those in pain, and it could actually repair structural problems while helping pain and inflammation simultaneously.
When the amniotic cell material is gathered, it comes from consenting donors who have undergone elective C-sections. The fluid is processed at an FDA-regulated lab and is checked for a full slate of diseases per FDA guidelines. The amniotic material has been used over 60,000 times in the U.S. with no negative events reported. It acts as an immunologically privileged material, meaning it has NOT been shown to cause any rejection reaction in the body. This means there is no graft against the host problem.
