Regenerative Medicine Maintenance Care

     After a course of treatment, most of our patients are feeling better and enjoying activities again without pain. The next trick is to stay that way! Once you have achieved better alignment and function in your joints and spine, you can make this last longer by continuing into the next treatment phase called maintenance care. Besides a natural way to reduce/manage chronic or ongoing pain, the idea behind maintenance care is by keeping your nervous system and joints healthy and running optimally, you will be less prone to sickness and injury.

     Many of our chiropractic patients choose ongoing, periodic spinal adjustments to keep the correction they worked so hard for and stay out of pain, naturally. Regenerative medicine patients should also consider a type of maintenance care. For many, it was hard work to regain better function and more joint space. For very damaged joints, it can take several regenerative medicine joint injections over a lengthy period of time to rebuild enough new tissue, so it makes sense to try and maintain this. For regenerative medicine maintenance, we recommend PRP at least once or twice/year. Some of our past patients come back once a year to not only get PRP but also add an additional amniocyte allograft treatment. This helps repair any recent damage and also continues building more joint space; a very smart strategy that will help your joints last longer and keep you from invasive surgery.

     If you have been through a course of treatment with us and are not on a maintenance care plan, come talk to us and let’s discuss your options! While most insurance companies do not pay for this type of care, we are glad to offer discounts on maintenance care packages for both chiropractic and regenerative medicine patients.
