What is Regenerative Medicine?

At BackFit Health + Spine our Non-Surgical Regenerative Medicine program is continuing to be at the forefront of modern medicine. Our advanced understanding of how the body heals itself every day is what is leading the way!  For example, a scratch on your hand from yard work usually fades after a few days even if you did nothing to treat it. In some situations however, our bodies don’t have the appropriate signals or resources to repair injuries. When this happens and proper treatment is neglected those conditions and injuries will become much more damaging and all too often will lead to surgery. The good news is that our body has an amazing ability to heal itself when we give it the resources and signals to do so. In fact, the essence of many surgical procedures we perform is to stimulate the body’s healing response. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to stimulate this healing response without the need for surgery? Stem cell therapy and PRP (platelet rich plasma) treatments offer just that - the ability to stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms to heal injuries without the need for surgery. The process typically involves specialized in-office processing of blood drawn at the time of the procedure, and re-injection of that processed blood or an injection of undifferentiated stem cells to the area of injury to stimulate your body’s natural healing.

The great folks at Back Fit Health and Spine helped me through a tough year last year after a severe auto accident. I highly recommend them for all of your Chiropractic, massage, and pain therapy needs.

My back has been feeling much better allowing me to be up on my feet for longer periods of time. The staff there are all very friendly and the scheduling is very accommodating to my busy schedule. I have liked it so much I even brought my 16 year old in to start her treatment too!
