Caring Medical is one of the first clinics to offer regenerative back pain treatments to help patients get relief from back injuries.
Our team of providers specialize in the most comprehensive techniques of non-surgical Prolotherapy including Traditional Dextrose Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Injections (PRP Back Injections), and Stem Cell Therapy for lower back pain. Drawing from over 25 years of experience, Caring Medical has become one of the largest chronic pain clinics in the United States.

Hackett-Hemwall dextrose Prolotherapy is the foundation of all regenerative back treatment protocols. It consists of the most thorough injection technique in order to resolve underlying spinal instability, as well as sacroiliac and facet joint damage.
Stem Cell Therapy for backs can be very effective for alleviating back pain and spinal instability. Your own stem cells are taken from one area of your body and injected into your back to strengthen and regenerate damaged, arthritic, or worn out tissues.
PRP injections utilize growth factors obtained from your own blood to target the damaged tissue causing chronic pain and low back instability. These back injections make a great option for athletes with back pain looking to avoid back surgery.
Patients seeking back pain relief often schedule back surgeries such as lumbar fusion, discectomy, laminectomy, or other spine injuries. These surgeries come with many risks and sometimes result in failed back surgery syndrome.
At Caring Medical, we take a more thorough approach to resolving back pain, often discovering diagnoses missed on an MRI. We work with our patients to devise a comprehensive treatment plan based on the severity of your chronic back pain to help you avoid surgery, alleviate symptoms, and attain your functional goals.
The unique treatment protocols that set Caring Medical apart are designed for pain resolution, not just pain management or only temporary relief. Our patients are generally able to stay as active as possible during the treatment.

“I traveled to Chicago several times to see Dr. Hauser in 2010 for excruciating, unrelenting and inescapable back pain. I tried nearly every "conventional" treatment with little or no difference. The treatment was life changing and miraculous. Now years later, I am still very active with no pain. Thank you, Dr. Hauser.”
What if I have already tried PRP or other regenerative injection therapy for back pain?
If you did not experience long-term success with PRP or other regenerative therapy, there are likely many reasons why it did not work for you. That is not to say that you are not a good candidate for Platelet Rich Plasma for back pain, but there are many important differences in the quality of care and the validity of available treatments. It is likely that the clinician who injected you did not actually address the underlying cause of your back pain. If you only received one single injection, the primary risks of spine arthritis, disc degeneration or sacroiliac joint instability could not possibly have been addressed. In our own studies, and in the medical literature at large, the most effective regenerative injection therapies require injections that cover the whole area. When talking about cellular injection therapies, the best cells actually comes from a person’s own healing cells, and performed utilizing an injection technique that comprehensively addresses both the inside and outside of the sacroiliac and facet joints. As opposed to the one-shot-wonder PRP approach, our comprehensive technique consist of typically 40-60 injections at each treatment. This is why it is called “Comprehensive Prolotherapy” or “Comprehensive Platelet Rich Plasma Prolotherapy.”
How many Prolotherapy, PRP, or Stem Cell Therapy treatments are needed?
Most patients require 3-6 total treatments for back pain. While some patients may require only 1-2 treatments for complete back pain relief, the treatments stimulate the body to repair, and build upon each other. When the back has significant damage from arthritis or traumatic injury, more widespread areas of the joint need to be repaired in order to restore spinal stability and relieve pain. Long-term tissue repair occurs over the course of a few treatments and continues to repair well after the final treatment. This is how our bodies repair and our protocols are designed to maximize this natural process. The protocols pioneered by Caring Medical since 1993 are among the most comprehensive in the field. We strive to get patients long-lasting results in as few treatments as possible. Our goal is pain cure, not pain management!
Does government Medicare or Medicaid cover the treatments?
We are not a Medicare or Medicaid provider. Medicare/Medicaid does not cover Regenerative Medicine services.
Does my private insurance cover Prolotherapy, PRP, or Stem Cell Therapy?
Most patients receive at least some reimbursement for treatment when they submit the itemized statement that we provide after each treatment. Health Saving Account and Flexible Spending Account funds can also be used to cover treatments. We are an out of network provider. If you have only seen your insurance network doctors for help with your back pain, you have probably been offered pain prescriptions, physical therapy, cortisone injections, or an MRI and surgical referral. Isn’t it exciting to discover there is a whole other side of medicine that saves people from unnecessary spinal fusion or other back surgery and gets patients OFF pain medications, versus getting people started on opioids and other pain prescriptions? This is what Regenerative Medicine is all about!
How much do treatments cost?
Compared to the cost of surgery, MRI, and many other traditional treatments, regenerative spine treatments are an affordable alternative, especially for patients who do not want to go through a surgical procedure. Prolotherapy for the low back starts at $900 per treatment. When PRP or stem cells are added, the treatment cost does go up to cover the cost of safely collecting and processing the cells, and ranges from approximately $1,500-$3,500 per treatment.
What forms of payment are accepted?
Our clinics accept all major credit cards and/or cash.
