According to the National Institutes of Health, up to 80% of adult men and women will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain can result from overuse, trauma, skeletal irregularities or structural issues that cause weakness, tingling or burning pain in any extremity. However, a sedentary lifestyle, obesity, smoking and the aging process can all contribute to chronic back pain. At the MedWell Center for Chronic Conditions Recovery, our doctors and staff use a multidisciplinary approach that integrates traditional orthopedic medicine, physical therapy, hormone treatments, lifestyle nutrition, medical weight loss and the latest regenerative cellular therapies like ultrasound-guided platelet rich plasma injections.

MedWell specializes in diagnosing and treating painful joint and soft tissue injuries for back pain relief for ligament strains, myofascial pain, joint osteoarthritis, nerve pain and other spinal conditions. Our goal is to combine traditional medical treatments with interventional orthopedic cellular procedures to provide our patients with best possible outcomes. Regenerative cellular therapies hold great promise for acute and chronic back pain relief. When a back injury happens, some of the first repair cells sent to the injury site are platelets. PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections are rich in many different growth factors and attract stem cells to the healing process. Our doctors and staff are highly trained in relief procedures and nonsurgical treatments for back pain.
Back pain can flare up at any time making your activities for daily living challenging. It is a popular misconception that bed rest will eventually cure back pain. Fortunately, MedWell offers a broad range of minimally invasive treatments and therapies for all types of acute and chronic back pain. Moreover, we understand that when you hurt you need to help today and strive to offer same-day appointments whenever needed.
