If You’re Suffering With Back Pain, The Regenerative Clinic Can Help
Unfortunately, it’s a fact of life – just about all of us will suffer from it at some point, and not surprisingly, the older we get, the more likely it is. As a rule of thumb, it affects 30 per cent of 30-year-olds, 40 per cent of 40-year-olds, and so on, increasing with each decade.
Your back is a large, highly complex structure consisting of 33 bones – vertebrae – in your spine, each one cushioned with tough, jelly-filled discs as well as numerous ligaments and muscles. With so much going on, it’s not surprising that back pain is one of the most common reasons why people see a doctor. If surgery is something you wish to avoid, we offer alternative non-invasive treatments at The Regenerative Clinic.
What treatments does The Regenerative Clinic offer?
This day case treatment is exclusively offered to our patients. It uses pioneering technology using your body’s own adipose (fat) cells to treat pain and inflammation with MFAT Injections. Injections using MFAT Injections are minimally invasive and are carried out under ultrasound guidance. Altogether the procedure takes about an hour to perform with a minimal recovery time. As well as being a potential alternative to surgery, MFAT Injections can also aid post-surgery recovery.
This is an effective and well-researched therapy that takes advantage of the blood’s natural healing properties to reduce pain and improve joint function. It uses a specially concentrated blend of platelets prepared from your own blood to repair damaged cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscle and bone. Treatment is administered via an injection and depending on the injury two to three injections may be required, performed at weekly intervals.

Also called facet blocks, these are recommended if you’ve not had much success with the first-step approaches of painkillers, exercise, losing weight and spinal physiotherapy.
