Want to Avoid Cervical Fusion?
Regenexx procedures use sophisticated image-guided injections to place bone marrow concentrate or high-dose platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in critical areas in your neck (cervical spine) to help the body heal itself. Because there are many things that can cause neck pain, from trauma to simple wear and tear, Regenexx procedures for cervical spine issues treat bad or degenerated discs, arthritic or damaged facet joints, pinched nerves, lax ligaments, or weak muscles. In other words, Regenexx procedures provide alternatives to cervical spinal fusion and other neck surgeries.
Rather than find one source of pain, however, we focus on identifying and treating many structures at the same time. Why? Our research shows that treating the spine as a functioning unit yields better results. That is why our cervical procedures fall within the Percutaneous Functioning Spinal Unit (Per-FSU) family of procedures.
