Regenerative Medical Techniques for Orthopedic Injuries
Medical science and technology have advanced in leaps and bounds. Today, we can offer next-generation methods for treating your pain. For chronic back pain, our non-surgical options include lumbar epidural steroid injections—a powerful anti-inflammatory. Alternatively, a facet joint injection procedure requires only minutes of your time and can provide lasting relief for months.
For chronic neck, back, hip, and knee pain, we may recommend radiofrequency ablation (RFA)—a procedure that uses energy to heat and disable nerve signal transmission to the brain. RFA delivers long-lasting relief for a year or longer and can be combined with injections or other non-surgical solutions to compound both the effects and their duration. Ultrasound and fluoroscopy-guided injections may also be recommended, as well as platelet-rich plasma and stem cell regenerative techniques to rejuvenate aging joints at the cellular level.

Non-Operative Treatment FAQs
For most patients suffering from chronic back pain, epidural steroid injections can provide relief for a quarter of a year or longer. With a quick procedure time and lasting results, steroid injections are among the more reliable ways that we treat back pain at Palmetto Bone & Joint.
If you’re looking for a longer-lasting solution, you have options. Speak with an orthopedic doctor at Palmetto Bone & Joint today about our non-operative solutions by calling us at (803) 941-8095 or contacting us online.
When other chronic joint pain solutions fall short, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) may be recommended. This long-term option uses radiofrequency energy directed through a small needle to heat up and destroy the nerves that send pain signals to your brain. Ideal for applications in the neck, back, and other joints where pain relief has been difficult or impossible to maintain, RFA is a safe and effective treatment with results lasting a year or longer.
Though it’s not widely known, stem cells can be harvested from adult patients and reapplied elsewhere to rejuvenate tissue. Right now, you have untapped stem cells hidden away in fat and bone. These cells are blank canvases that go anywhere to become anything, offering up unlimited applications in the world of orthopedic medicine.
