Back pain caused by herniated discs (slipped discs) is common, painful, and can keep you from doing the things you love. Herniated discs are especially difficult to manage because they are located within the vertebrae and lack an abundant blood supply needed for healing. The pain associated with this injury is caused when the jelly like substance between the vertebrae is damaged putting pressure on the nerve causing you pain. If you are tired of living in pain and want to get back to doing what you love, CellMed can help.
With modern regenerative medicine, amnio therapy provides an alternative to costly monthly doctor’s visits and addictive pain medications. Since there is very little blood supply to the discs, amniotic stem cell therapy is an excellent way to treat both the pain and the injury. This outpatient procedure has little downtime and none of the risk of a surgical complication or failure.
Steroid injections and epidurals contain strong medications that can, with chronic use, degenerate the disc further. Unlike steroid injections, amniotic therapy does not cause further damage to the site and promotes healing from within.
