Non Surgical Procedure for Low Back Disc Pain

posted Aug 2, 2013, 5:32 AM by Arockia Doss   [ updated Nov 26, 2013, 2:18 AM ]

Disc degeneration can be debilitating and affects millions world wide. This condition is an unmet area of medical need resulting in significant disability, health care costs and loss of revenue to those involved. Until recently most patients had to simply suffer in pain and either wait for surgery or undergo surgery with sometimes persisting post surgical pain. 

All this is now a thing of the past. With a single pin hole twenty minute out patient procedure patients with long term low back pain will feel better without having to go through spinal surgery.

This revolutionary technique utilises the patients own cells to heal and regenerate painful discs. Watch this space for the most exciting development in treating patients with spinal pain that will revolutionise the way we have treated spinal disc degeneration for ever.
