Regenerative Medicine

What is Regenerative Medicine?

Dr. Berring and the late Dr. DiPaola have researched for years trying to find the perfect complement to our philosophy on healthcare. After finding the perfect healthy minimally invasive procedure, we are now able to better affect your wellness process by allowing your body to heal naturally using brand new tissue. We accomplish this task by offering both PRP and Regenerative Medicine injections.

 

This service is now available and we are scheduling consultations.

These high quality services will be delivered by our nurse practitioner, Brook Batey-Heim under the supervision of our Medical Director, Dr. Matthew Huff MD.

Please call Sara, our practice manager, at 513-390-0778 to schedule your consultation.

Please check out our Video and Patient Guide for information on this awesome new service.

According to The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, "Chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health."

The Goal of Regenerative Medicine

Because chiropractic treatments are primarily applied to the spinal region, many individuals incorrectly assume that chiropractors treat only back and neck ailments. While we do quickly and effectively eliminate back and neck pain, it's not the only goal. The objective is to restore and optimize human health. In fact, according to a statement from The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, "The purpose of chiropractic is to optimize health."

How Regenerative Medicine Works

You may be wondering... how can the same chiropractic treatment which effectively treats my back pain also optimize my health? The answer can be found by looking into the relationship between the spine and the nervous system.

 

As you may already know, the nervous system is the master controller of all living cells, tissues and organs; orchestrating and coordinating all cellular functions. The spinal column encases the nervous system (spinal cord and nerve roots) and is responsible for its protection.

 

Because of this intimate relationship, biomechanical and structural problems in the spinal column can irritate parts of the enclosed nervous system. This irritation can result from noxious inflammatory biochemicals released during tissue injury or may result from direct mechanical pressure. In either case, the functioning of the nervous system is negatively influenced as is the functioning of the cells, tissues and organs which are supplied by the affected nerve(s).

 

The resulting ailment(s) depends on the cells, tissues and organs affected as well as the extent of nervous system compromise.

 

In short, because the body's innate recuperative powers are affected by and integrated through the nervous system, correcting spinal abnormalities which irritate the nervous system can lead to a number of favorable results in patients suffering from various, seemingly non-spinal health conditions.

The Benefits of Regenerative Medicine

Short-term and regular chiropractic care have a number of benefits including:

  • spinal and extremity pain relief

  • headache relief

  • increased mobility and range of motion

  • decreased stiffness and muscular spasms

  • arthritic joint pain relief

  • increased joint health

  • increased performance and energy

  • increased sense of well being and relaxation

  • increased balance and coordination

  • reduced degeneration and risk of injury

  • enhanced tissue healing

  • decreased tissue inflammation

7 Reasons Why Umbilical Cord Tissue Provides the Best Source of Stem Cells!

1. You want more Stem Cells.

You don't get any more simply by moving them around from one place to another. We are born with a certain number of stem cells. An estimated ratio of stem cells to normal cells is 1:10,000 at day one then dwindles to 1:400,000 by age 60. At the ripe old age of 18, we have spent about 80% of our bank account of stem cells.

I am not sure that I would want to dip into this limited pool of resources. there is a much better, younger, faster, stronger, and more highly functional source of stem cells available at a lower risk and cost to you.

2. Umilical Cord Tissue stem cells are young, one day old. Yours are old.

We already know the older you get the less stem cells you hahve to help you repair yourself from injuris and illnesses- so you heal slower!

This is how it worls: initally our cells (stem cells and other cells) replicated (replaced) themselves every 24 hours. At age 65 this rate drops to every 60 hours. This means that an old cell can become 200 cells in 30 days. A one day old cell can become 1,000,000,000 cells in 30 days. Just imagine the graph for these numbers. If this wasn't reason enough, here are 2 more significant differences in the age of stem cells you choose:

A.) The "telomere" length on the end of each of our chromosomes is an indicator of cell viability and longevity. Telomeres are like the wicks in a candle. They get shorter throughout life and when they run out, you die. Young stem cells have long telomeres and will last longer than older and shorter telomeres in your stem cells.

B.) Old stem cells can only stimulate the release of approximately 100 different types of proteins and healing agents whereas the younger stem cells activate over 300 different types of healing properties.

3. Your chance of infection and other complications is greater when using your own.

If you can get them without casuing youself an trauma whatsoever, why would you not? Some people just experience pains in the "harvest" area for long periods of time. How long is an acceptable amount of time when it is 100% unnecessary? Others experience life threatening infections, especially in our era of antibiotic resistance.

4. When you use your own, you inevitably lose some in the process.

The best and more efficient methods of stem cell extraction do not have a 100% transfer efficiency. I wonder what it actually is. Old school bone marrow and adipose harvesting and processing equipment is expensive and somewhat inefficient.

These expensive machines usually come with lease-to-own equipment plans. The doctors who are stuck with these machines feel obligated to use them. This is not your least expensive or your most efficient option.

5. When you use your own stem cells, some return to the site they were harvested from to heal the newest injury site in the body.

How many? We don't know. The Mayo Clinic did a study showing both knees benefitted after only one of them was injected with stem cells. Another study showed radio actively tagged stem cells injected in the knee can end up in the brain. This shows us that stem cells don't stay where you put them.

This brings up guided imaging. Another expensive, soon becoming obsolete machine. The users of these machines tell you that after just a few times of use, they are a bit unnecesary. Not only does the clinician develop a feel for the procedure through practice, the added technologies only bring an inevitable technical glitch potential at any given time. This is another cumbersome and oftern unnecessarily added, costly procedure.

6. Your stem cells are not the best. Umbilical cord tissue offers the greatest number of harvestable mesenchymal stem cells.
 

Yields for umbilical cord tissue ranged from 10,000 cells/mL to 4,700,000 cells/cm of umbilical cord, more than 3 times the next highest yielded amount from other sources.

Arthroscopy. 2015 Sep; 31(9):1836-43. doi: 10.1016/j.artho.2015.03.014

7. Your stem cells are the most expensive. All of those extra procedures and stems add to the cost.

None of the methods of regenerative medicine are covered by insurance, yet. So it may sound expensive at first glance. But when you start to weigh the options; out of pocket medical expenses like huge deductibles, PT co-pays, lost work time, vacation time, chance of complication or failed surgical outcomes, etc. - its starts to sound a lot less expensive.

How much is your knee or shoulder worth to you? How about your lungs, heart or brain? You will end up paying less when you go with stem cells than you would otherwise even if the surgery was completely successful.

I hope this information helps clear up some things about where to get your stem cells, and who and how to have them delivered. They will all work; however, some work better than others. Don't wait until its too late, find a regenerative medicine center that cares about you today!

 

 

PLATELET-RICH PLASMA THERAPY (PRP) TREATMENT


Another useful therapy is platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Your peripheral blood contains platelets, which act as first responders when there's an injury. They come in and start the clotting mechanism, thereby preventing you from bleeding to death. They also give marching orders to other cells. For example, platelets can command stem cells to multiply and grow, or to differentiate and form new tissue.

These platelets also have many different growth factors associated with them, which can help to promote healing and stop inflammation. PRP involves taking a blood sample and then spinning the blood in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected back into the area that is inflamed.

 

Regenerative Cellular Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy


The primary purpose of stem cells is to maintain, heal and regenerate tissues wherever they reside in your body. This is a continuous process that occurs inside your body throughout your life. If you didn't have stem cells, your lifespan would be about an hour, because there would be nothing to replace exhausted cells or damaged tissue. In addition, any time your body is exposed to any sort of toxin, the inflammatory process causes stem cells to swarm to the area to repair the damage.

"Basically, anything inside your body that is inflamed, that is damaged in some way, that is lacking blood supply, the stem cells can successfully treat.

That means orthopedics, knee injections, shoulder injections, osteoarthritis, acute injuries, anterior cruciate ligament tears … in your back — back pain associated with degenerative disc disease or damaged tendons or ligaments, herniated and bulging discs. You can also use it in systemic issues, everything from diabetes, to cardiac, to lungs — any tissue organ inside your body that's been damaged.

Autoimmune diseases can also be treated. The stem cells are naturally immunosuppressant, meaning they can help quiet down an over reactive immune system and help the immune system function in a more normal way. Neurological diseases, traumatic brain injury, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson's. All of these have to do with tissue that's not functioning properly. The cells can be used to address that."

Where do our stem cells come from and why?

New Life Regenerative Medicine- https://www.newliferegen.com/

Umbilical cord stem cells are much more efficient at replicating once removed from the cord tissue compared to adult stem cells. For example, when placed in a petri dish with the proper nutrients, one cord stem cell will multiply into 1 billion cells in 30 days, whereas one adult stem cell will multiply into only around 200 cells in 30 days, according to a 2011 study published in The Journal of Orthopedics.
