Apart from various soft tissue treatments using injections, standard processes are progressing rapidly in treating spinal disc and facet joint problems. These minimally invasive surgical procedures may replace major surgical interventions on the back using PRP and growth factors to repair both the disc and the small joints instead of discectomy and stabilisation.

A current clinical evaluation has shown these surgical techniques to yield extremely good medium-term results; the techniques are set to change the options in solving back problems completely in the near future.
