Regenexx Stem Cell and Blood Platelet Therapies for Chronic Lower Back Pain

I am considering using Regenexx stem cell and blood platelet therapies for chronic lower back pain.

Has anyone used these procedures before or do you know of someone who has?

About Me: I am 28 years old, fairly active (play a lot of golf and tennis and some basketball) and I hurt my back in the Summer of 2012 doing heavy deadlifts. I am very diligent with doing at home physical therapy every day, and I make sure to walk a lot and to not do stupid things.

I have an L5-S1 disc bulge, L5-S1 facet arthopothy, L4-L5 annular tear, L4-L5 facet arthropothy, and mild L4-L5 disc degeneration.

I have chronic pain everyday, mostly centralized, that I would describe as a 2-3 out of 10, but it can get worse if I do too much athletically, or if I'm not diligent with good form when I'm moving myself or moving objects.

I have tried an L5-S1 facet block but it resulted in zero difference for me.

I am now considering Regenexx but I would like to know more about patient outcomes and potential risks.

Thank you!
