Up to 80% of the population will experience some form of back pain in their lifetime. Actually, around 31 million Americans feel back pain right now as you are reading this.
With so many suffering from pain due to car accidents, on the job injuries, sports, and overall life there is needs to be a good solution for pain that doesn’t depend on medications and surgeries for minimal relief. That is where stem cell therapy for back pain comes into play!
What causes back pain? There are a number of causes for back pain, such as:
- Strained muscles
- Sprained ligaments
- Herniated or bulging discs
- Joint inflammation
- Poor posture or scoliosis
- Weight excess
Stem cell injections are a cutting edge treatment designed to address pain at the source, improving or eliminating pain from disc degeneration, herniated discs, strained muscles, and other back-related medical issues.
Back pain is usually prescribed highly addictive prescription drugs as the surgeries involved are fairly intense with little success. This can lead to the abuse and dependence on opioids which have been a major contributor to the opioid epidemic in the United States. Painkillers are prescribed for lower back pain more than any other leading causes of pain.
Stem cell therapy can be used to treat any of a number of pain management issues. Stem cell procedures come highly recommended by Tampa Rejuvenation as the go-to method for orthopedic pain management, avoiding the need for cortisone shots, medications, and even surgery.

How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
Stem cells are most prevalent at the beginning stages of life and can be found in the amniotic fluid as well as the umbilical cord. As the fetus develops and grows, the stem cells develop with them.
Stem cells have a distinctive quality to them that differentiates them from other cells: they have the ability to become any type of cell. However, as we age, the number of stem cells we have in our body’s declines quickly as well as our ability to heal. Just to give you an idea of the magnitude a newborn has one stem cell per every 10,000 cells compared to an 80-year old that has one stem cell per every 10 million cells
Stem cells have the ability to develop into different cells with specific functions. This is what gives them their restorative properties.
Stem cells divide into daughter cells. These cells have two potentials, either become specialized cells or more stem cells.
Specialized cells can become:
- Blood cells
- Heart muscle cells
- Bone cells
- And more
Stem cell therapy’s goal is to find an area of inflammation and work to regrow and regenerate the damaged tissues in this area. Working to address the source of pain which can improve and even eliminate the pain and inflammation in those muscles and joints. It is this restorative property that makes stem cells so integral for healing and treating your back pain and any other concerns.
Types of Stem Cells
There are different kinds of stem cells that can be harvested and used:
- Adult stem cells: these cells can be found in an adult patient and are derived from bone marrow or from fat aspiration. These cells are fully differentiated and therefore cannot change into other cells, yielding little improvement or regeneration.
- Immature stem cells: these cells can be found in the embryonic fluid and umbilical cord. These cells can be extracted after a c-section birth with no impact on the mother or baby.
At Tampa Rejuvenation, we use Mesenchymal Stem Cells or MSC, which are known as the “Gold Standard of Stem Cell”. These are derived from the umbilical cord, ensuring the highest concentration of stem cells and growth factors available. Since these cells are immunoprivileged the possibility of reaction is negligible, with immense benefits to anyone who is treated! With umbilical cords as a source, we can ensure that we get the most growth-factors since older stem cells are less likely to grow as much.
