PRP Therapy for Lower Back Pain
There are many potential causes of low back pain including age, poor posture and injury, to name a few. Adding to the complexity of low back pain are genetics, lifestyle choices and a person’s current health. Thus, conventional treatments such as physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medicine and even surgery come up short when treating back pain in the long run. For this reason, many are turning to the non-surgical alternative of platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy.
The process begins by drawing a small amount of a patient’s blood. The blood is then placed into a centrifuge machine where it is spun at high speeds until the red blood cells and platelets are separated. The concentrated platelets are rich in proteins and growth factors that are then injected into the injured or damaged muscle, joint or disc in the low back. Precise placement of the injections is guaranteed with advanced fluoroscopy or ultrasonic guidance. The source of a patient’s back pain and the severity of damage determine how many injections are received over time. Even so, there is typically a significant reduction in pain after just one to two PRP injections.
Stem Cell Treatments for SI Joint Pain
Connecting the sacrum to the pelvis, the sacroiliac (SI) joint is a critical weight bearing and shock-absorbing joint that is supported by surrounding ligaments. The joint allows for a small amount of movement within its structure to establish a walking pattern or normal movement. Since the SI joint is critical to transmit upper body movements and provide stability within the spine, when it becomes injured, inflamed or unstable, individuals can experience incredible pain and loss of mobility. In fact, inflammation of the SI joint is one major cause of lower back pain, as well as pain in the hip, groin, buttocks and down the back of the leg.
Providing significant results for SI joint dysfunction, facet joint pain and arthritis in the lower back, stem cell treatments using platelet rich plasma (PRP) concentrates a patient’s blood platelets before injecting them back into the injured or damaged area. Containing valuable proteins or “growth factors,” the tissues, cartilage, tendons and/or ligaments are encouraged to regenerate and heal themselves naturally.
Platelet Rich Plasma Injections
Though not a new phenomenon, platelet rich plasma injections have since become a key player in wound healing and improving injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, joints and other degenerative conditions. By taking a small portion of an individual’s blood, isolating the activated platelets and injecting them into abnormal, damaged tissue, the concentration of growth factors promotes reparative cell formation. As a result, PRP injections have reduced pain for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions and disorders, including arthritis and osteoarthritis.

Dr. Danny keeps it real! With gratitude, I have decided to write this review. I got a few subtle services done with him and I have been really happy about it. I proudly say that I trust his insight and knowledge. He truly is a talented physician and works from his heart. I am fortunate to have found this place. Thank you Modern Aesthetica!
I was referred to Dr. Dan via a couple clients/friends. I went in there not really knowing what to expect...but I needed help filling in some lines without actual filler. He's honest and even told me I DIDN'T need things I though I might. When I say instant results...I mean it. Shocking! He's professional, courteous and straight to the point. It's been 3 days and I can't stop staring at my face...very well knowing the results I already see will be even better in 2 weeks. Amazing. Referring everyone I know!
Dr. Daniel is the best. His office is clean and the receptionist made me feel super welcome and comfortable. Will definitely be returning!!!
Top notch facility. Top notch doctor. Very happy to have found this place! Thanks Dr M!
Dr. Daniel has helped me with my fitness journey so much! He is a truly caring physician and was available for me every step of the way. A lot of weight loss and fitness doctors use the same template, but I KNOW he treats every patient specifically, and adjusts the regimen to tailor it to my needs.
I went to go see Dr. Danny recently and he treated with kit gloves. I couldn't be happier. He's a phenomenal doctor and what a beautiful facility.
I was referred to Dr. Danny by a friend who got great results with his fitness regimen. I had hit a plateau in terms of my results so that’s why I first went to Modern. I didn’t know what to expect but I was amazed at everything Dr. Danny shared with me. He gave me some great advice on a medicine based fitness regiment and customized something just for me. Loving the results. Thank you!
I had a Vampire Facial here and the results were amazing. Dr. Danny made sure I looked great for my best friend's party 1 week after. Finding a great doctor in Los Angeles can be tough but I think I found a solid one here! If you want to look your VERY best, I highly recommend Dr. Danny and the entire staff at Modern Aesthetica!
Dr. Daniel is the best choice I have ever made! It took me a while to settle on a physician, but I'm glad I chose him!
Hello All...I recently went to see Dr. Daniel @ the newly opened Modern Aesthetics Spa and I was delighted! I had an upcoming social event so I decided to try the PRP facial AKA the vampire facial. There was no discomfort involved and the results were great...soft, pretty, glowing skin! Great staff too...ask for Dana for scheduling, she's awesome!
What can I say! Dr. Danny and his team gave me the amazing glow I wanted for my holiday party. This was my first time doing any lip fillers and facial services and I am totally happy about the results! I'll be back.
I recently tried out the laser hair removal, my legs are so soft. Dr. Daniel did and great job I'm very pleased with the results I got I'll definitely be going back. I recommend everyone go check him out!
This was my first experience with laser hair removal and I've heard a lot of discoursing rumors about pricing and pain. Dr. Daniel made me feel super comfortable about going forward with this treatments and I can't describe how satisfied I am with the results!!!! I did my underarms to start and I will most certainly be going back for more
Let me start by saying, I am VERY selective with who I get work done by. My best friend referred me to Dr. Danny after getting botox done by him. I wanted to not only make my lips more plump, but also correct my crooked upper lip. I have had my lips done before and know what I like. I asked Dr. Danny to give me a natural plump and correction. It has been a week since I've got my lips done and I am pleased to say, he is one of the few Doctors I've come across that ACTUALLY listens to the patients desires. There is a dangerous line between natural enhancements and an overdone fake look. I absolutely love my natural plump and can confidently say that I trust Dr. Danny's work.
I finally decided to try laser hair removal after getting tired of waxing for all these years. I got really attentive service from Dr. Daniel - he actually asked me questions that were relevant to my needs. I informed him that it took a lot of courage for me to finally try out lasering because I was so afraid that it would hurt! I've been going for a couple months now and my body is slowing becoming hairless! I highly recommend Dr. Daniel. Btw the office is brand new and super cute. I’m looking forward to see how the rest of maintenance of the Laser treatment will be.
