The Future Treatment of Back Pain
Has there ever been a time in your life when you have experienced back pain? “Nearly 3 in 10 adults (28%) are currently experiencing low back pain and of those people, 78% have been experiencing low back pain for 1 year or more” ( The Harris Poll, 2022). Low back pain is the most common form of physical pain people experience at least once. 8 in 10 people have said they’ve experienced it at least once in their life.
What causes back pain?
Back pain can be caused by many different causes some of them including:
Injuries or accidents: Back pain can be caused by a sudden injury, such as a fall or car accident, or by repetitive straining
Poor Posture: Sitting or standing in poor posture for extended periods of time can lead to back pain.
Overuse or overexertion: Repetitive activities or overexerting oneself during physical activity can cause back pain.
Stress or tension: Stress and tension can lead to muscles tension and pain in the back
Aging: As we age, the discs in our spine can become worn and lead to back pain
Herniated discs: A herniated disc occurs when the soft, gel-like center of a spinal disc pushes out through a tear in the outer layer.
Spinal stenosis: Spinal Stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal, which can put pressure on the nerves and cause back pain.
These are all things that can cause back pain, but once you start to have it needs to start taken care of. What type of treatment can you do to reduce and help your back pain? There’s a new treatment that the world needs to know and it’s called Regenerative Cell-Based Therapy.
Regenerative Cell-Based Therapy?
The goal of regenerative cell-based therapy is to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes and repair damaged tissues or organs, with the ultimate aim of improving patient outcomes and reducing the need for more invasive procedures or surgeries. A research company called DiscGenics through clinical testing has come up with a method to reduce back pain. Discgenics uses Regenerative Cell-Based Therapy which focuses on alleviating pain and restoring function in patients with disc degenerative (Low Back Pain) diseases of the spine through an injection of IDCT. IDCT stands for (Injectable Degenerative Cell Therapy). This IDCT will get injected to help build back those discs in your spine to help you to be able to live a more happy pain-free life. DiscGenics with advanced technology has advanced in the medical industry and its future is changing with regenerative cell-based therapies.
Flagg Flanagan, CEO of DiscGenics and 30 years of experience in the medical industry talks about how revolutionary this is. “I am extremely proud of our team at DiscGenics and remain incredibly excited about the opportunity before us to potentially help millions of patients with debilitating back pain”
With all of this being said there are still things that we can constantly do to keep our backs in the best shape possible that we encourage everybody to do on a daily basis. There are several things you can try to reduce back pain:
Stay active: Avoiding activity or bed rest can lead to more back pain. Gentle exercises such as walking or swimming can help to reduce inflammation and pain
Practice good posture: Poor posture can put unnecessary strain on your back muscles. Make sure you make an effort to sit up straight and use a chair with good support.
Yoga: You can stretch the muscles in your back, buttocks, and legs to alleviate pain.
Keeping a healthy weight: Being overweight puts extra strain on your back muscles, so maintaining a healthy weight can help reduce back pain.
Get Enough Sleep: Lack of sleep can cause muscle fatigue and increase your risk of back pain.
These are things that we already know help to strengthen your lower back, but if you constantly have pain then maybe IDTC is something to consider in the future.
Back Pain is something that people shouldn’t take lightly because we only have one back our entire lives. Let’s make sure that we take care of ourselves so that we can live a life full of adventure without all the pain. IDCT will change the world of medicine as we know and will help Millions of people around the world.
