How many times have you had to cancel plans because you threw your back out? The pain can be brutal. All you want to do is lie down and escape. Getting out of bed becomes a major challenge and so does doing almost anything. Back pain is not fun. In fact, it’s the worst.
The first thing you want is for the pain to stop. Then you want to be able to just move normally without being hunched over or limping or making those horrible groaning sounds. You’ll do anything to get better.
You have to be really careful about pain meds, as they can become addicting way too easily. Surgery might be an option, but it’s expensive and invasive. Chiropractic care is a great alternative and can provide relief from back pain. And regenerative medicine can be used as an adjunct therapy. But what are they and how do they work?
The benefits of chiropractic services
According to the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractic care is a “hands-on, drug-free approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment.” In addition to neck and joint pain, and even headaches, it can definitely help with back pain. Chiropractic adjustments put your spine back into the proper alignment, which helps your body heal.
Here at Motion Medical Center, you’ll start with a consultation where your doctor asks questions and gets to know you and your particular issues. They want to get to the root of the problem and to make sure that chiropractic treatment is the right course of action.
Once they take a look at any imaging reports, such as X-rays or MRIs, they’ll determine your condition. Next comes an individualized plan of treatment that could involve massage, spinal adjustments, and teaching you how to stretch and exercise properly. The goal is to reduce the pain and inflammation. Your doctor wants you to heal and get back to normal as quickly as possible and to definitely be pain free.
Consider regenerative medicine
Is there anything else we can do? You bet. Combining regenerative medicine along with chiropractic services offers even more ways to relieve your back pain. While most people know about what a chiropractor does, regenerative medicine may not be so obvious.
According to the National Institutes of Health, regenerative medicine is “the process of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to age, disease, damage, or congenital defects. This field holds the promise of regenerating damaged tissues and organs in the body by stimulating previously irreparable organs to heal themselves.”
Regenerative medicine involves injecting stem cells into injured tissues, which will then stimulate a natural healing response. It’s quite a remarkable process, and according to the NIH: “Regenerative medicine is moving toward a day when we can repair and replace damaged tissues.”
