If you are suffering from lower back pain, you are not alone. As many as 85% of Americans suffer from low back pain, but thankfully PRP therapy or Platelet Rich Plasma can help.
Low back pain affects the area of your back known as the lumbar spine.
The lumbar spine, or your lower back, is made up of the five vertebrae, or back bones, between your ribs and your pelvis. Your spine consists of these individual vertebra so it can be flexible. There are discs in between each bone to provide cushioning. Over the years, movement, and various conditions can cause these disk to wear, or become damaged.
The discs of the lumber spine are particularly susceptible to wear and tear from walking, running, lifting and bending. As the discs become damaged, or inflamed, lower back pain is the result.
Sometimes lower back pain will resolve on its own. Other times it can be quite debilitating, almost crippling, and may require corrective surgery.
PRP Therapy for Back Pain
PRP Therapy is currently being used effectively as a non-surgical option for the treatment of lower back pain. PRP is a kind of stem cell therapy. These stem cell therapies are the cornerstone of the emerging techniques of regenerative medicine.
Regenerative medicine relies on your body’s own healing abilities, rather than drugs or surgery.
In the case of a Platelet Rich Plasma injection, the stem cells and growth factors in PRP stimulate improved blood flow, and the growth of new cells at an injury site. For the treatment of lower back pain, PRP is injected in and around damaged disks.
After the injection, your body reacts to the presence of PRP. Stem cells and the healing proteins in the PRP cause cells to multiply, repair and rebuild the damaged spinal tissue. PRP reduces inflammation, reduces pain, and improves joint function.
Platelet Rich Plasma is made from your own blood. It is what is known as a “biologic agent.” Since “biologics” such as PRP are made from your own blood or cells, there are little or no known side effects.
Other Proven Uses of PRP Therapy
The stem cells and growth factors in PRP have been used to treat other painful orthopedic conditions. Even before it was used for back pain, PRP Therapy was being used effectively to treat joint pain in knees, shoulders, wrist and hips. Just about any joint that can become damaged of inflamed due to wear or injury, can be treated with PRP.
But, the remarkable healing properties of PRP do not stop at your joints!
PRP Therapy can also be used to improve sexual wellness in both men and women. Platelet Rich Plasma is the active ingredient in the increasingly popular O-shot for women. Platelet Rich Plasma is also at the heart of the P-shot, and my own proprietary sexual wellness treatment for men, the Gains Enhancement.
For women, PRP injections can:
- Improve vaginal lubrication
- Boost sexual satisfaction
- Intensify sensitivity
- Cure low libido/increase desire
PRP injections such as the P-shot, offer an alternative cure for erectile dysfunction (ED).
Thanks to the growth factors in PRP, the P-shot and the Gains Enhancement are the only non-surgical procedures that can cure ED, as well as increase penis size!
