Regenerate Your Degenerated Painful Disc

Apr 21, 2023
Using Bone Marrow Aspirated Concentrate (BMAC) for Intradiscal Injections to Regenerate the Disc.

Low Back Pain is a common condition that affects a large number of people worldwide. It is a condition that can occur when your lower lumbar discs begin to degenerate between the vertebral bodies. This may cause pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. 

One of the most promising treatment for degenerated disc pain is bone marrow aspirated concentrate (BMAC) therapy. This innovative treatment involves extracting a small amount of bone marrow from the patient's hip bone (iliac crest), while under mild sedation and using fluoroscopic guidance. This is then processed in a centrifuge to isolate the growth factors and stem cells. These are the elements that are essential for tissue repair and regeneration. 

Once the BMAC is prepared, it is precisely injected into the affected disc using fluoroscopic guidance to ensure accurate placement of the stem cells and growth factors. BMAC Therapy has been shown to be highly effective in reducing pain and restoring function in patients with degenerated disc pain, with minimal side effects and short recovery time. 

The benefits of BMAC therapy for degenerated disc pain are numerous. It is a non-surgical, ultra-minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in a n outpatient setting, reducing the risk of complications and minimizing downtime. It also provides a natural alternative to traditional pain managemnt techniques, such as steriod injections or surgery. 

If you are suffering from Lumbar Degenerative Disc Pain, BMC therapy may be an effective treatment option for you. The Board-Certified Interventional Pain Physicians who are experts in spine regeneration would be happy to review your imaging to see if you are a candidate for this or other Regenerative Orthobiologic Therapies.
