Facet Syndrome

Facet Syndrome

Facet Syndrome is caused by degeneration of the joints between your spine bones. The condition can be debilitating and keep you from doing even the most simple everyday tasks due to pain and mobility issues. Orthobiologics Associates offers safe, effective, and non-surgical treatment for Facet Syndrome.

Facet Joint Syndrome, disc herniation, fragmentation, and reduction in cushioning of the discs between vertebrae can cause you to lose flexibility and suffer pain in your neck, back, shoulders, and buttocks. We can help your pain and healing.

Our clinics are full-service regenerative medicine facilities with the ability to harvest form many tissues, including bone marrow, fat, and blood. You can trust our trained professionals to determine which resource is appropriate for your condition.

Orthobiologics for Facet Syndrome

Our Cell Therapy Ortho-Biologics is a non-surgical procedure that can be completed in our office. It offers superior advantages over surgery, including avoiding painful and lengthy recovery periods that are usually required to restore mobility, strength, and range of motion.

Cell Therapy Ortho-Biologics leverages natural regenerative healing to treat pain and mobility issues caused by Facet Syndrome. Many patients experience results within weeks, though full recovery may take up to a year. The outcome will vary depending on the severity of your problem.

We stimulate regeneration and healing via stem cell facet injections and PRP facet injections, which introduce living, undifferentiated stem cells and tissue-healing platelets into the affected areas. These safe and effective procedures are quick, painless, and minimally invasive. Most patients report returning to normal daily activities within 24-48 hours.

Facet Joint Pain Treatment Options

Proper bracing may help with your Facet Syndrome, aid you in healing more quickly, and possibly avoid surgery or other treatment. Professional fitting of a brace may keep you from further damage and put you on the path to healing. We stock various equipment in our clinics and will match you with the proper brace for your condition and lifestyle if one is needed.

We have multiple therapies that may help with Facet Syndrome and speed your recovery, including lumbar facet joint injections, cervical facet syndrome treatment injections, and thoracic joint injections. Having various tools at our disposal allows us to help with many symptoms and ensure your best outcome. Contact us today for a consultation to discuss how we can assist with your recovery.

What Are Stem Cells?

Stem cells are the raw building blocks of the human body. After conception, it’s these undifferentiated cells that divide, replicate, and eventually specialize, giving rise to every cell, tissue, organ, and system in an infant’s body. Some undifferentiated stem cells become neurons; others become muscle tissue; others become bones or joint tissue; still others become organ systems; the list goes on.

At Orthobiologics Associates, we use endogenous stem cells harvested from bone marrow or adipose (fat) tissue to stimulate repair and regeneration. These human tissues contain high quantities of naturally occurring, undifferentiated stem cells, which we extract, concentrate, and inject into a patient’s degenerated or injured tissues to stimulate healing. Because these cells have the unique ability to become any type of cell, they can help jumpstart cell regeneration and accelerate the body’s natural healing process.

Why Choose Non-Surgical Facet Pain Treatment?

Surgical intervention for facet joint syndrome should be a last resort for individuals who have experienced minimal to no pain relief with conservative treatments. Generally, the procedure involves spinal fusion, which permanently joins the spinal vertebrae around the affected joint to improve stability, restrict joint movement, and reduce stress on the painful joint.

While surgery may initially help reduce the pain associated with cervical, thoracic, or lumbar facet syndrome, it may also cause additional back or neck problems. When spinal vertebrae are fused together, the fused segment(s) can no longer absorb shock and force, as the spine is naturally designed to do. Shock and force on the spine can ultimately transfer to the joints adjacent to the fusion, and that additional stress can cause those joints to deteriorate over time, too.

Unlike surgery, using stem cells for facet joint pain can help the damaged area(s) heal naturally. This minimally invasive therapy not only carries far fewer immediate risks than surgery, but also has a much lower potential for long-term complications.
