Treatments We Offer

Our clinic provides minimally invasive, same-day treatment for various spinal diseases such as spinal canal stenosis and intervertebral disc herniation. In addition, our clinic only provides treatments that have been proven medically grounded and effective based on years of research, papers, and actual treatment results.
Although it took a lot of effort and time to introduce advanced treatment methods from overseas, we hope that the treatment will satisfy patients from all over Japan and overseas.

There are five treatment methods available at our hospital, but the doctor will take the time to examine you for 30 minutes, explaining the true cause of your pain and understanding why our treatment can alleviate your pain. Based on this careful examination, we will consult with you and select the treatment method that suits you from the five treatment methods listed below.

The World's Most Advanced Lower Back Pain Treatment

The Cellgel Method

The Cellgel Method is a back pain treatment method that has been introduced in more than 54 countries around the world, primarily in Europe.

With this method, the disc volume is not decreased, and the treatment remains in the disc as a gel-like implant, thus restoring and preserving the disc. It's also suitable for a wide range of conditions.

The treament is a one-day procedure, making it more accessible to patients who are busy or living far away.

About Back Pain

There are many different causes of back pain symptoms, and depending on the cause, back pain may vary slightly from patient to patient. Pain or numbness from the lower back to the calf may indicate a slipped disc, inflammation of the sciatic nerve, or intermittent claudication. When consulting a doctor for back pain, be sure to tell them exactly how your back hurts and other places where you feel discomfort.

At our clinic, we provide an outpatient treatment, which does not involve any scalpels - only needles. Hence, this treatment is less burdensome for the elderly or people that are wary of surgery. We also welcome consultations with patients who are considering conventional surgery.
