Alternative Therapies

Your body already holds all of the powerful cells it needs to heal. At NeuroSpinal Institute of Broward, clinic director Dr. Darran Hamm, and the team isolate and use those healing cells for maximum results using alternative therapies. To learn more about how alternative therapies can help you heal and avoid major surgery, call the Weston, Florida, office or set up your consultation using online scheduling now.

Alternative Therapies

What are alternative therapies?


Alternative therapies are treatments that capitalize on your body’s own internal healing properties. Your blood and bone marrow contain several types of cells that focus mainly on healing. These include:




Platelets are blood cells that carry a large amount of growth factors proteins that activate cellular renewal. As growth factors help guide healing, they also reduce inflammation and improve circulation. Further, platelets recruit “master” cells to the injury site.


Master cells


Master cells are very powerful because they’re a blank slate. They can turn into any type of cell in the human body and make more master cells as needed. So, master cells can rebuild and improve the condition of cartilage, ligaments, tendons, joints, discs, and other tissues. 


While these cells naturally gravitate to injuries and damaged areas, the most powerful response occurs early and drops off quickly. 


Alternative therapies use a small sample of your blood or bone marrow and concentrate those cells in the lab. Then they’re injected where you need to heal. 


What kinds of problems do alternative therapies treat?


Alternative therapies can be a great solution for people who have acute or chronic pain. Back, neck, knee, hip, and other types of pain usually happen because of either trauma (like sports injuries) or wear-and-tear damage related to aging. 


Some of the most common treatment areas for alternative therapies are:

  • Joints (knees, hips, shoulder, and others)
  • Tendons
  • Ligaments
  • Muscles
  • Spinal discs

These therapies are usually part of an overall recovery plan that the team at NeuroSpinal Institute of Broward customizes for you. 


Many patients whose chronic pain is bad enough to have them considering surgery opt for alternative therapies. It stops the pain, restores your ability to function, and helps you avoid a joint replacement or other major surgery.


What other treatments work with alternative therapies?


Alternative injections are one of the main aspects of healing, but other therapies support recovery, too. These include:

  • Cryotherapy
  • Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) 
  • Vibration therapy
  • Rehabilitation exercises
  • Durable medical equipment (DME)

Functional blood chemistry analysis, intravenous (IV) therapy, nutritional supplements, and other systemic therapies are also available as part of the practice’s whole-person functional medicine approach to healing and wellness. 


Alternative treatments give you another way to bounce back and do the things you love. Call NeuroSpinal Institute of Broward or book your consultation using online scheduling now.
