What Causes Back Pain?

Back pain can significantly restrict movement and affect daily activities such as bending, lifting, or sitting for extended periods. Simple tasks like getting out of bed, tying shoelaces, or standing up from a chair can become difficult and uncomfortable, significantly affecting overall quality of life and mobility.

Back pain often stems from various underlying causes, such as:

Reason #1

Muscle Strain or Sprain

Resulting from overexertion or sudden movements, causing localized pain and stiffness.

Reason #2

Degenerative Disc Disease

Age-related deterioration of spinal discs, leading to decreased cushioning and increased susceptibility to pain.

Reason #3

Herniated or Bulging Discs

Protrusion of spinal disc material, irritating nearby nerves and causing pain, numbness, or weakness.

Reason #4

Spinal Stenosis

Narrowing of the spinal canal, compressing nerves and resulting in pain, tingling, or weakness, especially during activity.

Reason #5


Compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, causing sharp, shooting pain along the nerve pathway.

Reason #6

Arthritis or Osteoarthritis

Inflammation affects spinal joints, leading to stiffness, pain, and reduced mobility.

Reason #7

Skeletal Irregularities Like Scoliosis

Abnormal curvature of the spine, causing uneven pressure on discs and joints, resulting in pain.

Reason #8

Trauma or Injury

Fractures, dislocations, or soft tissue damage from accidents or falls can lead to acute or chronic pain.

What Kind Of Back Pain Will Benefit From Cellular Biologic Therapy Injections?

Our expert team may utilize MSC tissue, PRP, Nano Vessels, Biologic cellular therapy. We may also use the Biologics, Thrombin, and Fibrinogen known as Discseel for disc related injuries. Cellular Biologic therapy is a viable option for various causes of back pain, including:

Over time, the discs between vertebrae wear out, leading to back pain, spinal instability, and pinched nerves, causing tingling and numbness.

Facet joints connecting vertebrae are prone to osteoarthritis, causing back pain, limited movement, inflammation, and bone spurs.

A slipped or herniated disc occurs when the outer layer weakens or tears, allowing the gel-like center to bulge or leak out. This compresses nerves and causes back pain, tingling, and radiating pain.

Inflammation or injury to the sacroiliac joint connecting hips and spine causes lower back pain.

How Does Cellular Therapy Provide Relief From Back Pain?

Cells possess the remarkable ability to self-replicate and generate new cells. Distributed throughout the body, cells play a crucial role in healing processes. In response to injury, they migrate to the affected area and undertake various tasks, including tissue regeneration, inflammation regulation, and release of healing-promoting biochemicals like exosomes and cytokines.

During a spine procedure, a concentrated dosage of these potent cells and biologics is precisely injected into the injured tissues of the back. As these cells facilitate tissue healing, they simultaneously provide relief from back pain.

Why Is Cellular Therapy A Preferred Treatment Over Back Surgery?

Minimally Invasive

Cellular therapy typically involves injections, avoiding the need for invasive surgical procedures.

Reduced Risk of Complications

With no incisions or anesthesia, cellular therapy carries lower risks compared to surgical interventions.

Faster Recovery

Patients often experience shorter recovery times with cellular therapy, allowing for quicker return to daily activities.

Preserves Natural Tissue

Cellular therapy promotes tissue regeneration and repair, preserving the integrity of natural structures in the back.

Potential for Long-term Relief

By addressing underlying causes and promoting healing, cellular therapy offers the potential for long-lasting pain relief compared to surgical interventions

Hi - I want to leave this review because this facility has one of the most informative, intelligent, kind, and helpful staff by name of Amanda. Amanda is a gem. She spent a lot of time explaining the benefits of the treatments that I was seeking, but also was so HONEST and CONSIDERATE that stated that due to my medical condition, I should not yet seek the desired treatment they office at their facility. Amanda was not only kind, concern, and honest and spoke with much integrity about how I am vulnerable to receive the treatment, but also she offered many many other alternatives that are available and could be helpful. She honestly took such a long time to explain several options, which some did not even was something they offered, but due to my medical condition could be simple and very useful. I may not be able to use their services now and hopefully later, but I am sure going to refer this facility to anyone who is looking to get stem cell treatment.

My mother got a stem cell injection in her hip a few months before her 76th birthday instead of getting another hip replacement. She is so happy with the results and has been living pain free for the past 6+ months. She keeps telling everyone she knows about Dr. Fishman and Stem Cell Institute of Los Angeles and thinks the drive from Riverside County to Encino is worth every penny!

What Is The DISCSEEL® Procedure?

Discseel® is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes a natural biologic procedure meant to heal your discs and prevent leaks by promoting regrowth of healthy tissue. This revolutionary procedure is yielding positive results for many patients around the world. This procedure introduces fibrin, which incorporates into the disc to form a barrier, with the goal of sealing any tears that reside in the outer portion of the discs. This sealing prevents disc fluid from leaking out and inflaming the surrounding nerves that cause pain. The fibrin creates an environment where new disc tissue can grow promoting healing and tissue regrowth. The symptoms of lower back aches, reduced flexibility, increased pain with activity, and numbness and tingling in her lower extremities are early warning signs of degenerated discs and tears within the disc. There are several different treatment options that you can pursue, and one of these is the use of fibrin.

This FDA-approved substance can be injected into the discs in your spine to help seal any holes or cracks that are present within the disc. This fibrin sealant can help to maintain the proper shape of the desk with the insertion of additional fluid, and this food also serves as a structural aid, helping to prevent the disc from breaking down again in the future. This less invasive procedure can be a great option if you suffer from chronic back pain or degenerative disc disease. It is a highly effective alternative to spinal fusion or discectomy for chronic low back pain patients. The Discseel® procedure can be performed utilizing biologic cellular therapy in addition to the fibrin. The biologic portion of the injection contains mesenchymal signaling cells and several other growth factors that help generate new tissue and restore function to the damaged tissue. This portion is similar to that of simple cellular and acellular injections. The second portion is the injection of fibrin, which is a protein that is naturally produced within the body after injury occurs. It helps to seal off damaged tissue and close wounds so they can heal without becoming infected. This concept is utilized with the Discseel® procedure. 21 Peptides Peptides are molecules that are a combination of two or more amino acids.
