GET YOUR BACK BACK
Have you been told that steroid injections, PRP, stem cells or invasive surgery are your only options to treat your neck and back issues? RELIEF™ provides an alternative that eliminates stubborn scar tissue to increase your mobility, frees nerves from entrapment to reduce your pain and catalyzes the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The best part: no surgery, medication, stem cells or downtime.
PAIN OR STIFFNESS IN LOWER BACK
Ever heard of surgery completely solving someone’s neck or back problems? We haven’t either.
Few conditions are more debilitating than experiencing pain in one’s back or neck, as it makes even the simplest movements difficult. Neck and back surgeries can be highly invasive with a very real risk of complications, often leading to significant post-surgical pain and decreased mobility resulting from the scarred tissue. Steroid injections may help in the short term yet only mask symptoms and can lead to detrimental longer term effect and may not fully address the root cause of the biomechanical issue.
RELIEF™ may be used to treat the injured, painful or poorly functioning back and neck and return you to a healthy and pre-injury state without invasive surgery or downtime.
Surgeries to alleviate back or neck pain have a high rate of complication and failure. For example, in fusion surgeries, where part of the spine is bolted together solid, the structures above and below can become overloaded and may be forced to take on more movement than they were designed to accommodate, potentially leading to the need for additional fusions over time. Moreover, to install the surgical hardware, muscles and connective tissue that stabilize the spine have to be cut through. The result can be instability and pain around the site of fusion. If you continue to suffer post back surgery, RELIEF™ may be used to restore the poorly functioning tissue and nerves to a healthy and pre-injury state and return you to proper biomechanical function without additional invasive surgeries or downtime.
Sacroiliac (SI) joint issues can be debilitating and make daily life’s simplest activities difficult. Steroid injections may help in the short term yet only mask symptoms and can lead to detrimental longer term effect and may not fully address the root cause of the biomechanical issue. SI fusion surgery removes the layer of shock-absorption between the hip and lumbar spine altering the body’s natural biomechanics and leading to significantly increased stress on those areas. Many patients may require additional surgeries to correct damage done by the initial surgery and its after effects. RELIEF™ may be used to restore the damaged connective tissue to a healthy and pre-injury state and return you to proper biomechanical function without an invasive surgery or downtime.
Spinal stenosis is caused when swelling and growth of bones and ligaments in the lower back restrict available space in the spinal canal cause pinching or impingement of nerves. Treatment commonly involves invasive surgery to open up the spinal canal by removing tissue around the impingement. RELIEF™ may be used to restore the damaged areas and address the underlying swelling and nerve impingement without surgery or downtime.
Neck pain can be the result of many things including bad posture, wear and tear or acute trauma. There are many structures that can cause pain, stiffness and lacking of mobility including damaged discs, pinched nerves, arthritic or impaired facet joints, loose ligaments, or weak muscles. RELIEF™ may be used to restore the damaged areas and address the underlying biomechanical issues without surgery or downtime.
“I could not walk or sleep. It has been a year since my treatment. I am now skiing, hiking and am back to 100%. It’s remarkable.”
|What It Is|
|RELIEF™ is a minimally-invasive treatment designed to catalyze your body’s natural ability to heal. We do not perform surgery. We do not mask symptoms with medication, cortisone or other steroids. We do not use stem cells.
The treatment utilizes dynamic ultrasound, 3D mapping and ScarMap™ imaging software to identify soft tissue abnormalities and locate entrapped nerves across the interstitial layer. Under ultrasound guidance, the treatment frees nerves from entrapment, eliminates scar tissue and restores the anatomy to its pre-injury state.
|What It Does|
|The treatment employs specialized needles to hydrodissect stiff and scarred tissue and free nerves from entrapment to surrounding connective tissue. FDA registered and World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) approved growth factors, collagens, extracellular proteins naturally found in human placental tissues are administered to reduce inflammation, inhibit scar formation, and support tissue regeneration. Patients remain completely awake and engaged during the entire treatment and may experience symptom alleviation as soon as 1-10 days with continued improvement over the following weeks and months.|
|What To Expect|
|Usually about 24-48 hours after the procedure, patients are able to return to their favorite activities. No immobilization, bracing or other inconvenience post-treatment is required. Movement and light active recovery are recommended.|
