The spine is one of the most important and most delicate points in our entire body. When you come into a clinic to speak with a doctor about your spinal condition, they will often recommend surgery to bring the spine back into alignment. However, other alternative treatment methods to spinal surgery are just as effective, if not more, with none of the risks that come with a surgical procedure.
The spine is extremely fragile and an important component of the complex structure of the body. It houses the central nervous system, which controls signals from the brain to the rest of the body and back. If even one disc is out of place, it can wreak havoc on the body, and cause major issues with the rest of the spinal alignment, your immunity, movement, ability to prevent future damage and injuries, and your body’s overall function.
If you have a spinal misalignment and you go in for surgery, there are a multitude of potential risks and side effects that could cause possibly lifelong effects and damage, such as:
- Damaged communication through the central nervous system
- Digestive problems
- Skin issues
- And more
Thankfully, if you have a slipped disc, herniated disc, or another spinal injury or trauma, there are alternative treatments to spinal surgery that can help you find the relief you seek.
Regenerative Medicine Treatment Options
Regenerative medicine has proven time and time again its effectiveness for spinal damage relief. If you have sustained an injury due to a car accident, sports-related activity, slip and fall, or simply bending or moving the wrong way, regenerative medicine treatments get to the root of your condition for effective and lasting relief in the spine.
Regenerative tissue therapy involves the use of regenerative tissue derived from the Wharton’s jelly of umbilical allografts. The umbilical cords are ethically donated and collected from prescreened mothers after a scheduled C-section birth. The healing properties within the regenerative tissue are injected into the area of need, and they work with your body’s natural mechanisms to bring effective relief straight to the source of your pain.
Platelet-Rich Plasma is a solution derived from components found within your own blood used for effective spine treatment. The process is simple: a doctor will extract a very small sample of your blood, run it through a device called a centrifuge, and this device will separate the platelets and plasma from the other components found within your blood. The result is a potent, golden solution filled with healing properties that are injected into your area of need, providing relief directly at the source of your pain.
Both of these regenerative medicine options have little to no risk of rejection, side effects, or downtime after treatment, making them excellent alternatives to the risks and potential complications involved with spinal surgery.
