Conditions Good for Regenerative Medicine

New advances in medicine are happening every day and Regenerative medicine is one of the new frontiers. Basically, it’s replacing, engineering, or regenerating human cells, tissues, organs to their normal function.

Treatment with Regenerative Medicine

One of the goals is to help the body heal itself and cure a disease or ailment rather than just treating the symptoms.

Regenerative medicine is concentrated into three main fields; tissue engineering and biomaterials, cellular therapies, and medical devices and artificial organs.

Stem cells are a key to regenerative medicine. Stem cells come from many sources including blood, fat, bone marrow, and cord blood. Once harvested, they can be processed into a concentrated form and re-introduced into the body. These cells have the ability to regenerate into manydifferent things once inside the body.

Researchers are trying to figure out a way to grow and regenerate organs and cure diseases. Hopefully, as a result, people suffering from organ failure will be able to get new organs grown from their own tissue, eliminating the long waitlist for donor organs and the rejection risk that comes with a traditional transplant.

Regenerative medicine is also showing promise in treating diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, COPD, and many other blood and tissue disorders.

Treating Pain with Regenerative Medicine

There are three approaches that are interrelated:

  • Rejuvenation: Helping to boost the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
  • Replacement: Using healthy cells, tissues, or organs to replace damaged ones.
  • Regeneration: Therefore, finding ways to deliver specific cells to diseased or damaged tissue or organs with the hope of restoring normal or improved function.

Stem cells may be a key to regenerative medicine. They have the ability to develop into many different kinds of cells.

Treating Pain or Injuries with Regenerative Medicine

The future is already here concerning pain treatment with regenerative medicine. Damaged tissue can heal with the help of regenerative medical treatments and grow into new, healthy tissue.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is, at times, part of the process. PRP comes from a person’s own blood and is a concentration of platelets that have been processed outside of the body. Sometimes, the PRP is mixed with other regenerative components and then reintroduced into the body to help the body heal and repair itself.

So PRP can help treat conditions like tendonitis and mild arthritis where the joints just need a little help repairing themselves.

Often, regenerative medicine is part of a treatment plan that includes physical therapy and other pain treatment options to give you the best outcome possible.

Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Helping the body heal itself is the basis of chiropractic treatments. Chiropractic adjustments happen when a doctor of chiropractic places your body in a proper position using various manual manipulations.

The theory behind chiropractic care is that proper alignment of the musculoskeletal structure allows the body to heal itself without drugs or surgery.

Doctors focus mostly on the spine because the nervous system controls every cell and organ in the body. Keeping the spine in alignment can help promote an environment of healing. Dysfunctions in the spine can lead to symptoms in other parts of the body.

Regular chiropractic care can have many health benefits.

Pain Relief 

For many people, their first exposure to a chiropractor is because of back pain. After performing a medical history, the doctor might use a sudden but controlled force to manipulate a joint. A popping sound might happen, which is the result of the release of a gas bubble between the joints. This sudden movement can help improve both the quality of and the range of motion in a joint.

Acute back pain often responds well to chiropractic treatments. People suffering from neck pain, headaches, sciatica, and other pain issues in the muscles and joints can also find relief.

Improved Posture

In today’s world, many of us spend a lot of time sitting down at a desk. We also look down at our phones or other devices often. These behaviors can cause your spine to go out of alignment, leading to bad posture.

Leaning forward strains the neck muscles which can lead to pain and headaches. Chiropractic manipulation can help correct these problems.

Stress Relief

When you’re in pain, everything else seems to get worse. Your whole body can feel out of whack when your skeletal system is out of alignment. Fixing alignment issues can help relieve mental and physical stress and reduce tension.

Relieving stress can lead to better moods and even better sleep.

Chiropractic care often involves ongoing treatment, it isn’t just a one visit and you’re fixed type of thing. Also, simply fixing the problem doesn’t do much to prevent it from happening again. The goal is ongoing relief and prevention of future injuries,

When visiting a chiropractor, make sure you tell him or her a complete medical history including ongoing medical conditions, medications, surgical history, and any lifestyle factors that could contribute to your pain or injury.
