Orthobiologics continue to revolutionize medicine, especially by accelerating the healing of musculoskeletal pain and injuries. These pain-relieving treatments work in tandem with your body’s natural healing mechanisms by enhancing the processes. Rather than using pharmaceuticals or synthetic chemicals, orthobiologics utilize natural substances to reduce pain and quicken healing.
Board-certified chiropractor Steven Gentry, DC, and board-certified neurosurgeon Jeffrey Oppenheimer, MD, utilize orthobiologics for healing purposes at ChiroCare Therapy in Rancho Santa Margarita, California.
When you visit the office for a treatment consultation, our experts assess your injury or condition in depth using diagnostic technologies and a detailed physical exam. Then, we make personalized treatment recommendations to help you heal. Often, orthobiologics are a crucial component for healing and pain relief.
Orthobiologics are valuable tools in integrative care because they enhance your body’s natural healing processes. While your body can often heal injuries on its own, the extra assistance of an orthobiologic treatment can accelerate healing.
Our experts at ChiroCare Therapy might add one of the following to your integrative treatment plan:
Growth factors are proteins in your blood that stimulate cell growth and cellular reproduction. They play an essential role in natural healing and regeneration.
Various cells, tissues, and glands release growth factors. Some can even treat nerve damage and neurodegenerative diseases.
Stem cells can be collected from a variety of sources, including bone marrow and human embryos. No matter the source, they’re cells that can differentiate into various cell types depending on where they’re applied.
Matrix, or conductive material, houses stem cells and growth factors. Matrices provide scaffolding that stem cells can settle into and mature. If you need orthobiologic treatment to heal a severe bone fracture, a matrix can help rebuild the bone.
Our experts at ChiroCare Therapy primarily use orthobiologic therapies to treat musculoskeletal conditions that cause pain, swelling, and stiffness. Your musculoskeletal system includes bones and soft tissues like muscles and ligaments. Damage can be acute (short-term and sudden) or chronic (long-term and often cumulative).
If you have one of the following conditions, orthobiologic therapy might be an option:
Orthobiologic treatments, especially in a comprehensive treatment program, can reduce inflammation and minimize pain. They also facilitate healing so you can recover from injuries instead of masking their symptoms with treatments that only focus on reducing pain.
