Prevention of Back Pain / Spine Health

Back problems and related back pain can be extremely debilitating, especially as an individual grows older. Dr. Hunter provided education and discussed common back problems, the anatomy of the spine, treatments for back pain including physical therapy as well as the importance of exercise, stretching, and working on core strength for spine health. He also stressed the importance of good nutrition and stress management, for overall spine and body health - "A body in motion stays in motion."

Additionally, Dr. Hunter discussed common back surgeries and how many back and spine surgeries can now be done on a minimally invasive, outpatient basis.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy (Gastonia, NC)Doctor Hunter then discussed how he has been using stem cell treatments and injections as part of his spinal fusion surgeries since 2008 to assist in the fusion of bone and recovery. Furthermore, Dr. Hunter has been doing stem cell therapy, which can regenerate damaged tissue and reduce pain, for joints such as the knee, hip, and shoulders. Dr. Hunter discussed the benefits of stem cell therapy, as well as the difference between platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections and Stem cell injections.
