Many of the treatments we offer at Solutions are synergistic with each other. This means when used together, they are much more powerful than when used alone. Allograft injections for damaged joints provide regenerative tissue cells in an effort to stimulate repair and change long term degenerative damage. For this to occur, several other factors should be considered. For example bracing helps keep the joint space open so there is more room for new tissues to grow; this is particularly important for bone on bone joints. It also helps to provide building blocks the body can use to create the new tissue. This is why certain proteins and tissue growth factors are included as components in our allograft injections. Regenerative medicine patients should also use certain supplements after their allograft treatments for this reason as well.
Chiropractic is a way to detect and remove any pinched nerves that could disrupt the healing process. It also helps with any structural issues that may occur as the joint is healing and muscles are rehabilitating. In many cases, hips, shoulders and knees may need to be realigned to provide the most even joint space and reduce internal stress on newly developing tissues. While not every regenerative medicine patient needs chiropractic, a chiropractic check-up to determine this can be extremely important for the best results possible.
