Regenerative medicine is the answer to back pain, joint pain, nerve pain, and inflammation.
Regenerative medicine has the power to restore painful, damaged tissues with techniques that were non-existent even a couple of decades ago. Here are three things our chiropractor and specialist in regenerative medicine, Dr. M. Scott White, D.C. serving northern VA at New Life Laser Pain Relief Center in Woodbridge, wants you to know about cutting-edge treatments for back pain, joint pain, nerve pain, and inflammation.
Laser therapy takes away the need for needles.
Cell regeneration used to be accomplished by the injection of platelet-rich plasma. This method was effective for healing tissues and relieving inflammation, but it required sticking patients with needles repeatedly. New technology empowers the same kind of cell regeneration with robotic laser treatment, without the use of needles.
Laser light gently stimulates cell activity beneath the skin. Patients may feel a slight tingling sensation during their laser treatment sessions, but there is never a need for injections with laser light therapy.
Spinal decompression enables injured discs to heal themselves.
One of the modern innovations of chiropractic medicine is spinal decompression. This healing technique is a gentle form of traction that takes less than an hour per session.
Patients lie on a table while computer-assisted traction is applied with just the right amount of tension to gently move the bones of the spine that could be "squishing" the cushioning discs between the vertebrae of the spine. The affected discs have an opportunity to return to their normal position in the spine and heal, thereby reducing back pain, neck pain, numbness, tingling, and other undesirable sensations that can be caused when a spinal disc injury allows the vertebra to pinch a nerve.
Spinal decompression doesn't do the job of healing all at once. More than one treatment may be necessary, but each treatment relieves pressure and gives dehydrated, bulging, or herniated discs a chance to recover.
Modern chiropractic technique includes a broad range of healing modalities.
At New Life Laser Therapy Center in Woodbridge, VA you can receive traditional chiropractic therapy at the hands of an experienced practitioner to restore the natural alignment of your spine. You can also receive a drug-free, nonsurgical combination of effective therapies for spinal stenosis, degenerative disease of the knee joint, treatment for sciatica, treatment for degenerative hip joint disease, and follow-up care for spinal surgery that did not deliver desired results. Dr. White can also advise you of changes in posture and simple exercises to do every day that prevent future problems.
