Spinal stenosis is a degenerative spine disease in which the spinal canal becomes increasingly more narrow. This puts pressure on the spinal nerves and the spinal cord also. There is lumbar spinal stenosis and cervical spinal stenosis – lumbar is the most common, affecting roughly 8-11% of the U.S. population, with cervical spinal stenosis occurring in about five percent of Americans. At Regenerative Sports, Spine & Spa we offer both pain management treatments as well as regenerative therapies to assist in healing and promote the growth of healthy new tissue while reducing joint and spinal tissue inflammation.
Managing Spinal Stenosis Pain
Today many people are wary and rightly concerned about relying on heavy pain medications, and the side effects that come with constant use. At Regenerative Sports, Spine & Spa we offer safe, non-surgical solutions to ease pain without pharmaceuticals. From long-lasting pain management options such as an epidural steroid injectionto facet joint injections and SI joint injections we can help you feel more comfortable long after pain medication wears off – lasting several months.
Promoting Healing with Regenerative Therapies
Beyond pain management, don’t think that spinal surgery is your only other option. New advancements in regenerative medicine are proving cellular therapies to be very effective at managing and treating spinal diseases such as spinal stenosis. Stem cells, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), exosome therapies are showing that it’s possible to replenish and replace cells damaged by disease or degenerative conditions, while promoting the growth of new, healthy tissue and reduce inflammation at a specific site in the spine – as well as other areas in the body.
