Conditions We Treat with Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative Medicine is a unique and innovative approach to boosting the body’s natural healing and repair process and has been proven to be effective in treating many medical problems and types of injuries. This includes the sort of injuries typically seen and treated by chiropractors.

How Does Regenerative Medicine Work?

Regenerative cells are extremely special human cells. They are special because they have the unique ability to develop into many different cell types, from muscle and blood cells to brain cells. This means that they can be used to replace cells and tissues that have been damaged or lost due to injury or disease. 
Regenerative cells can be taken from many different sources, including adipose (fatty) tissue, umbilical cord tissue, placental tissue, blood from the umbilical cord, and bone marrow. They can be administered in a number of ways too. In our clinic, regenerative cells are usually injected directly into problem areas, such as the affected joints, muscles, or soft tissue. 

What Conditions Can Regenerative Medicine Treat?

Regenerative Medicine has been shown to be an extremely effective treatment for a range of health conditions, including orthopedic issues. Since chiropractic care also has a wide variety of applications even outside of orthopedic treatment, it makes regenerative medicine the perfect accompaniment to chiropractic care to achieve relief from a selection of diseases and health problems. Here are just a few, more common examples. 

Joint replacement: if you have had a joint replacement, you may benefit from regenerative medicine following your surgery. This is because the regenerative cells will help to repair the damaged cells, reduce inflammation, and improve and accelerate the entire healing process. Used in combination with chiropractic care, regenerative medicine can support the rehabilitation process so that you can get back to normal as quickly as possible following your joint replacement surgery.
