Regenerative medicine combines innovative technology with medical ingenuity to provide patients with quality care specifically designed to speed up healing at the injection site. This new and inventive technology allows patients to receive the benefits of rapid healing that effectively reduces discomfort and reduces recovery time. Finding the right combination of care can make a big difference in your overall wellness.
At RxWellness Spine & Health, we combine groundbreaking treatments with the best state-of-the-art equipment and the most versatile team to provide the best care plan in the DMV. Our team will create a personalized program to help you see the most benefits in the shortest possible time frame. At RxWellness Spine & Health, we typically utilize chiropractic care; however, we have begun offering the benefits of regenerative medicine to help our patients see better results for specific injuries. We strive to provide the most revolutionary treatment while also promoting the most holistic methods. We value our patient’s health, and our entire team works tirelessly to maintain it.
What Is Regenerative Medicine
Regenerative medicine is a branch of treatment that prioritizes tissue replacement for symptom management. This means that instead of prescribing medication to relieve pain, the nurse practitioner can speed up healing by introducing specialized cells to the injured area.
For example, if you sprain your ankle a traditional doctor might advise that you rest it and take medication for the pain. However, with regenerative medicine, the nurse practitioner would either introduce Platelet Rich Plasmas or cellular therapy at the injured site to speed up tissue reconstruction. The process is designed to improve the rate at which the body can repair itself.
Regenerative medicine is a broad field of study with unlimited practical applications, but at RxWellness Spine & Health, we specifically focus on cellular therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma. They both use the body to heal the body and fit into the RxWellness Spine & Health treatment promise.
Why Do We Offer Regenerative Medicine At A Chiropractic Facility
The philosophy of chiropractic care centers around the idea that under the right conditions, the body has everything it needs to heal itself, and so the doctor’s job is to create those conditions. The chiropractor does this by using manual manipulations to adjust specific areas of the spine to relieve pressure off the nerve and allow them to effectively transmit important signals from the brain.
Chiropractic care has always prioritized the importance of noninvasive drug-free methods that allow the body to heal itself, and regenerative medicine maintains those same core beliefs by harvesting specific cells of the body and reinserting them to maintain the integrity of the body without drugs or surgery. At the most basic level, regenerative medicine combines the core principles of chiropractic care by creating a plan that heals patients without heavily relying on medication or surgery.
What Is Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is a treatment that uses the patient’s blood to treat injuries and diseases. The blood is composed of various components such as plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Platelets contain proteins called growth factors that are very important in the healing process. PRP treatment uses the centrifugal process to create a dense concentration of platelets to then reinject into the injury site. The treatment exposes the injured area to a high concentration of platelets to speed up the healing process in acute pain and injury. The PRP process follows these simple steps:
- Draw the patient’s blood.
- Spin the blood in a centrifuge.
- Separate components of the blood, and isolate the platelets.
- Reinsert the platelet-rich blood into the patient at the site of pain or injury.
Trigger Point Injections
Trigger point injection is the process of relocating unspecialized adult stem cells to injured areas of the body. This process floods the affected area with unspecialized cells that can develop into surrounding tissue to provide additional support to the problem area. Some chronic conditions that Trigger Point injections can treat include:
- Chronic pain as a result of poor posture
- Injury to the muscle
- Poor techniques (like incorrect lifting form) that cause stress to the muscle
- Joint disorders
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Tension headaches
