Regenerative Medicine PLUS

     At Solutions, we are offering our patients a new therapy that’s getting amazing results! It involves combining two very effective forms of treatment, Regenerative Medicine PLUS chiropractic. The chiropractic is used to correct pinched nerves and structural problems, while regenerative medicine helps the body repair damaged tissue; when used together, this terrific synergy is helping patients feel better faster and heal more completely. Our patients who undergo both of these therapies together are raving about how much better they’re feeling and excited for getting back to activities they’ve had to avoid.

     For back and neck pain patients, chiropractic helps by realigning the spine in an effort to correct the pinched nerves causing the pain. Releasing a pinched nerve will also allow the more complete healing to occur. Certain types of chiropractic can also help slow spinal disc degeneration. The Gonstead method for example (used by the doctors at Solutions), aims to realign the nucleus of intervertebral discs. Besides improving the body’s posture and structural alignment, this encourages nutrient flow within the disc and this slows or stops degeneration. Unfortunately however, it does not reverse the damage, it only helps prevent further deterioration. When we add regenerative medicine, the body is also stimulated to repair the damage. Human tissue allograft injections help by greatly reducing inflammation, while also stimulate healing of arthritic joints, deteriorated ligaments and damaged nerve tissue.

     Regenerative medicine patients trying to save a damaged joint, chiropractic care is also a very smart addition to your therapy. Pinched nerves or structural misalignments in the lumbar spine or pelvis can hinder or slow a regenerative medicine patient’s recovery from degenerative knees and hips. Disc problems in the neck or mid-back commonly do the same for treatment of shoulder problems. For patients wanting to avoid joint replacement surgery, regenerative medicine is their only hope, so getting the most from their therapy is essential. Chiropractic care that corrects structural problems and nerve interference is a smart addition to ensure maximum healing.
