Whether you’ve ever been to a chiropractor or not, it might surprise you to learn that chiropractic care and stem cells can be a powerful combination— especially when it comes to pain management and injury recovery. If you’re considering your options with either stem cells and chiropractic care, it’s important to know your options and how you can benefit from both. Here’s what to know.
What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic is a field of alternative care that focuses on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems through manual techniques. It often overlaps with other practices like osteopathy and physical therapy to address many different areas of the body where you might experience pain and discomfort because of misalignment of the musculoskeletal system and spine (called vertebral subluxation). Although chiropractors are not medical doctors (like your regular physician), they still undergo extensive doctorate programs and clinical training to become a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC).
How Is It Similar to Stem Cells?
Stem cell therapy and chiropractic care share many of the same goals and underlying methods. For instance, both operate on the idea that the body is self-healing and can bring itself back into its natural state with the right guidance. Additionally, both share the goal of reducing inflammation which contributes to pain and discomfort in certain areas of the body. Inflammation (whether because of an underlying condition or misalignment of the spine and musculoskeletal system) puts undue pressure on the nervous system and causes the pain of varying degrees. Finally, both practices share the overall goal of a healthier outlook and positive lifestyle choices so you can live your best life— without a costly and intensive regimen of medications and pills.
How Can I Benefit from Both?
There are many different ways that a combination approach can help. The most common therapeutic approach for sports injuries and musculoskeletal pain includes a process where stem cells are injected to regenerate damaged tissues while chiropractic care can provide relief and reduce pressure on different points of the body. However, there are many other ways that you can benefit from a combination approach by our stem cell experts and chiropractic partners like aligning the spine for healthy fluid movement, as well as craniosacral adjustments that allow for a connection between brain, body, and gut. Additionally, a chiropractor has expertise in myofascial release and other modalities that allow stem cells to work at their highest capacity for effective healing.
