Low Back Pain

Most people suffer from low back pain at some point during their lives while others have chronic low back problems that have never responded to traditional treatment. Regenerative and Performance Specialists use platelets in the epidural space, facet and sacroiliac joints, and in all of the supporting ligaments of the spine to provide a comprehensive healing approach to the entire lumbar region.
