Chronic back pain is a type of pain that lasts for a long time, usually more than 12 weeks. It is different from acute back pain, which is sudden and goes away quickly.

Chronic back pain can greatly affect a person’s quality of life, making it difficult to work, exercise, and do everyday activities.

Treatment options for chronic back pain can include medication, physical therapy, exercise, and in some cases, surgery.

In a new study, doctors have found a new way to treat back pain caused by a condition called degenerative disc disease. This new treatment is called “viable disk allograft supplementation.”

It involves injecting special cells and fluid into a patient’s damaged spinal disc. The cells and fluid help the damaged disc to heal and grow new, healthy tissue.

Back pain is a common problem that can limit people’s ability to do everyday things.

Many people with back pain have degenerative disc disease, which happens when the discs between the bones in the spine wear down over time. This can cause pain and make it hard to move around.

In the study, doctors tested the new treatment on 50 patients with degenerative disc disease.

Forty-six patients received the new treatment, while four received a saline solution (a saltwater solution that doesn’t contain any medicine).

The patients who received the new treatment reported significant improvement in their pain and their ability to do everyday tasks.

In fact, 60% of patients reported more than a 50% improvement in their pain, and 70% reported more than a 20-point improvement in their ability to do things.

The new treatment doesn’t require any incisions or surgery, and patients can go home on the same day.

This is good news for people with degenerative disc disease, because other treatments haven’t worked very well.

The new treatment might also help people avoid taking opioids (a type of pain medicine) for a long time, which can be dangerous and addictive.

The study was sponsored by a company called VIVIEX Biologics, Inc. The lead author of the study, Dr. Douglas Beall, works as a medical consultant for the company.

If you care about pain, please read studies about vitamins that could help reduce bone fracture risk, and drinking electrolytes may help reduce muscle pain.

For more information about health, please see recent studies that painkiller ibuprofen may strongly influence your liver, and results showing Marijuana for pain relief may lead to withdrawal symptoms.

The study was presented at the Society of Interventional Radiology Annual Scientific Meeting.
