Chronic lower back pain (CLBP) can be one of the most difficult, debilitating conditions to diagnose and treat. Patients who have tried all available resources, such as therapy and injections, are often told there is nothing more to offer and rely on opioid medications.
ReActiv8 is a groundbreaking new treatment for CLBP when there is evidence of multifidus dysfunction. The multifidus is the largest and most important core stabilizing muscle in the lower back. Chronic back pain usually appears when this muscle doesn’t work properly.
ReActiv8 is a small pacemaker-like device that stimulates the nerves and contracts the multifidus, restoring the normal function of the core. As a rehabilitative and restorative therapy, this is the first stimulator device of its kind used to treat the underlying source of low back pain.
Dr. Robert Heros was the 1st physician in the Pacific NW to perform this procedure. He is now recognized as one of the most experienced and leading ReActiv8 experts in the United States.
Spinal Diagnostics is proud to be involved in the RESTORE Clinical Trial, a new and ongoing clinical research sponsored by Mainstay Medical. The study aims to prove further the safety and benefit of this exciting new therapy for chronic back pain patients.
You may be a good candidate for this trial if you have chronic back pain without significant radiating leg pain and have never had surgery. Please contact us if you are interested in participating in the trial.
