Because back pain has many causes, finding the true cause of your problems is the top priority. Dr Kaplan conducts a complete physical exam and reviews your medical history during your initial evaluation.

You will cover many topics during your initial evaluation, including your symptoms, lifestyle, diet, and health goals. All this information helps Dr. Kaplan formulate a preliminary diagnosis to determine what tests you need.

Testing and imaging exams can pinpoint the specific area where your pain originates, determine the degree of tissue damage, and even uncover pain-causing factors that you might not realize.


Dr Kaplan customizes back pain treatment for every client. Your specific treatment plan depends on the cause of your pain and how disruptive it is. Some of the treatment options for back pain include:

  • Prolozone  - A mixture of ozone and natural anti-inflammatory solutions are injected into the joint for pain and inflammation control.
  • Dextrose and biocellular prolotherapy – Concentrated dextrose solution is the first line of our regenerative treatments. When injected into tendons and joints, it promotes ligament regeneration and mild cartilage repair.
  • PRP (platelet-rich plasma) through an ultrasound-guided injection is a stronger cellular treatment. It promotes joint cartilage regeneration and repair of torn tissue. PRP Prolotherapy technique is used in more advanced arthritic and degenerative cases. It directly delivers growth factors in the damaged tissue and activates a signaling mechanism that stimulates the body’s stem cell production and recruitment to the site of injury. Repair and new tissue growth occur quickly and naturally.  
  • Self-renewal cellular therapy is the most advanced regenerative technique available. Stem cells are extracted from either the bone marrow or fat and are immediately reinjected into the injured areas of the shoulder. Direct delivery of mesenchymal stem cells into the affected area allows for repair by the growth of new healthy tissue. In cases of systemic inflammatory conditions and weakened immune system, lab–derived placenta products such as Placenta matrix and placenta derived Exosomes are used.
  • IOT (intraosseous therapy) bone marrow decompression. This cutting-edge technique was invented in Russia. It uses a simple needle insertion to stimulate bone marrow circulation and reduction of congestion. This process improves cartilage health from the inside.
  • Interstitial low level laser therapy. New cutting technology allows for placement of healing and anti-inflammatory laser lights directly into the injured tendons, ligaments and joint. This treatment is also used to activate PRP growth factors, making a PRP therapy more efficacious.
  • Peptide therapy. Dr. Kaplan’s in-depth knowledge of peptide therapy allows him to stimulate repair and regeneration with specifically selected peptides. Tissue-repairing peptides BPC and Thymosin beta 4 are used in the injection solutions and CJC/ Ipamorellin is often used to stimulate stem cell activity before the procedure. These peptides stimulate and enhance Dextrose prolotherapy, PRP, and Stem cells’ regenerative potential. 


Dr Kaplan’s comprehensive approach benefits a variety of back and neck pain conditions to include:

  • Arthritis
  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated discs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Compression fractures due to osteoporosis
  • Facet joint dysfunction

What to know before you go 

Dr. Kaplan utilizes advanced natural healing modalities to repair and heal a wide variety of back and neck pain conditions.

Dr. Kaplan’s techniques work by stimulating your own healing energy to repair the damaged part of your spine. He uses a specialized injection protocol that covers not only the damaged area but also the tissues that support it, leading to better healing and a stronger spine. 

Generally, most clients take a multimodal approach to back pain because using multiple therapies at once accurately targets all of the factors involved in pain. Dr Kaplan may recommend additional modalities such as deep tissue hyperthermia, intravenous (IV) infusions, and naturopathic medicine to optimize the healing of the spinal condition.


All injections are performed with a sterile technique and under ultrasound guidance.
All solutions are derived either from your own body or from sterile and thoroughly tested external sources.
