There is much debate about the effectiveness of regenerative stem cell treatments and whether or not it is the role of chiropractors in this type of treatment in the shoulders, knees and other parts of the body. Speaking from personal and professional experience, Action Spine & Joint can tell you that we’ve been wildly successful with the use of stem cells to treat pain, degenerative conditions, and many other issues of the bones and joints for patients in Nashville and the surrounding areas. But that success is something that you can expect when we a clinic has a non-surgical bone specialist on staff!
How Stem Cell Therapy Works
The type of stem cell products Action Spine & Joint's doctors use for treatments isolate growth factors and stem cells from cord blood and the umbilical cord itself. As you may know, stem cells can transform into any healthy cell type in the human body. This quality makes them the perfect material to repair and rebuild worn out or damaged joints, brain tissue, heart muscles, and much more.
Types of Stem Cell Treatment
There are two major types of stem cell treatments that our Sylvan Park and Forest Hills patients can choose from. Not every facility does both types of treatments. This is the case with Action Spine & Joint, because we have assessed both and determined that one outweighs the other in terms of immediate effectiveness and eventual patient outcomes.
Conditions Treatable with Stem Cell Therapy
The list of diseases and conditions that can be treated with stem cell therapy is unlimited. Below are a few of the most exciting prospects. Of course, we don’t promote our services in areas other than chiropractic, but the implications of these prospects are more than enough to keep research funded and ongoing.
Dr. Bearden at Action Spine & Joint uses the following with stem cell treatments:
- Knee: Meniscus injury
- Cartilage tears or wearing
- Sports injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Knee: ACL or MCL tears
- Shoulder injury
Other physicians can use similar treatments to treat these as well:
- Tendon injuries
- Parkinson’s disease
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Heart damage
The Benefits of Regenerative Stem Cell Treatment
Aids Healing Process
There are many valuable benefits of a cutting-edge therapy and the risks are minimal. Immune rejection the stem cells is the major risk factor, so Action Spine & Joint is careful to choose stem cell products that have had their autoimmune components “turned off” so they don’t cause the body to react adversely to them.
When the body begins to break down or is injured, there are many reasons you can begin to experience pain. Pinched nerves, bone on bone, or ligament tears are just a few of those issues that can cause extreme pain during even the simplest activities. Previously, there were only a few, rather drastic measures that could be taken to stop the pain from affecting a patient’s day-to-day life. However, with the developments in stem cell research, that is changing quickly!
The cartilage in your joints and the disks between your vertebrae are spongy and shock absorbing. They make your joints more forgiving during exercise, walking, squatting, standing and sitting. When these bodily materials begin to break down, you have no cushion between your bones of your knees, ankles, elbows, or even your spine.
Research Shows Stem Cell Therapy Works!
Safe and Effective Option
There are no potentially fatal risks of stem cell therapy, nor is it even considered dangerous by any known research. The field is growing and developing, so Action Spine & Joint makes a point to stay on top of new studies that may present any facts to the contrary. As long as you choose a professional team to administer your stem cell injections, you can be sure that you’re getting one of the safest joint therapies currently available.
A Non-Invasive Alternative
The injections we use can be spaced out so that you get treatments weeks apart, and if the treatment area is contained to one joint or area, you may only need a single injection. It’s hard to imagine a treatment that can do this much good for your aching joints being any less invasive or time consuming!
A Pain Free Future
After your stem cell treatment, you’ll head back to your home in Forest Hills, Bellevue or the heart of Nashville with a renewed quality of life. Your day-to-day activities will be easier and less painful with every treatment. With each passing day, you’ll see your own body grow stronger, and daily chores and hobbies will become easier and more enjoyable.
