Healing your body naturally by repairing and regenerating damaged tissues, ligaments and cartilage is now possible using a powerful form of regenerative medicine called stem cell therapy. Your Fort Worth chiropractor now offers this safe and effective treatment that will not only restore your quality of life but your overall health and well-being.
Performed at your Fort Worth chiropractic clinic, stem cell therapy involves using special cells found in your body called stem cells that have the amazing ability to eliminate inflammation and heal damaged tissues. Since your bones, muscles, cartilage, joints and ligaments are continuously breaking down due to normal wear and tear, your body must constantly work at regenerating those parts using stem cells. Providing potent analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, stem cells also have the remarkable ability to transform themselves into cells necessary for repairing damaged tissues and encouraging growth of new, healthy tissues.
In addition to providing long-term pain relief from neuropathy, arthritis and joint pain, stem cell treatment represents a drug-free, side-effect free, alternative treatment to managing a variety of chronic diseases, including heart disease, cancer, Parkinson's and diabetes. During your consultation appointment, your chiropractor in Fort Worth will explain all aspects of the procedure and answer any questions you have about stem cell treatment. You can expect each treatment to be completed in less than 30 minutes, with no recovery time needed.
While cortisone injections do offer some pain relief for osteoarthritis, the effects are only temporary. Repeated injections of cortisone will cause unpleasant side effects, such as headache, dizziness and weight gain. People taking cortisone injections also tend to suffer recurring infections as a result of their immune system being suppressed by cortisone. Research also shows that long-term use of cortisone may actually promote degeneration of joints, which could put you at risk for additional musculoskeletal injuries.
Stem cell treatment may also delay or possibly eliminate the need for joint replacement surgery by promoting regeneration of damaged tissues. Although joint replacement surgery may be inevitable in some cases, it can cause scarring, development of blood clots and has a risk of implantation failure. Extensive, post-operative rehabilitation therapy is also indicated for knee, hip and shoulder replacement patients.
