At Long Island Chiropractic & Physical Therapy, PLLC, our team is interested in offering the best available solutions to clientele. Our approach includes regeneration, the field of medicine that's dedicated to the healing of damaged cells and tissues. If you live in Smithtown or West Islip, NY, here's what you need to know about our local regeneration medicine program.
What Is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a form of clinical therapy that uses specialized techniques to stimulate the regrowth of damaged tissue and organs. This is often done with the use of therapeutic stem cells, the building blocks that will repair an area.
Regenerative medicine is most commonly used for the following conditions:
- • Brain Injury
- • Cardiovascular disease
- • Certain cancers
- • Diabetic retinopathy
- • Fibromyalgia
- • Immune system repair
- • Necrosis (tissue death)
- • Pulmonary disease
- • Stroke
- • Skin wound repair
If you are struggling with one of these conditions, get checked in with a local chiropractor to get started on a regenerative treatment plan. The sooner you can heal tissues through regeneration, the better.
Treatments in Regenerative Medicine
You'll find that there are different types of therapies in this field, and the type of treatment you receive will revolve around your circumstances. Tissue engineering is a form of biomedical engineering that combines biomaterials to rebuild a damaged region; this treatment is popular for replacing a portion of a bone, cartilage, or organ.
There's also cellular therapy, a method that injects the body with adult stem cells. Because stem cells have regenerative properties, this therapy is capable of regrowing missing tissue without the use of invasive surgery. Stem cells are often extracted from blood, bone marrow, fat, or skeletal muscle.
In prolotherapy, damaged joints and connective tissues are repaired through regeneration. The chiropractor will use specialized techniques to stimulate healing and restoration. This can treat conditions like arthritis or degenerative disc disease.
