Restorative medicine Q&A

What is restorative medicine?


Restorative medicine refers to state-of-the-art treatment approaches that help your body heal faster. Treatments use natural substances from biological sources, such as:


Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)


PRP uses heavily condensed platelets from your blood to help you recover. The platelets contain growth factors that stimulate healing. 


Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC)


These treatments contain powerful “master” cells that can make new tissue where you need it. Like PRP, these cells come from your own body. One example is your bone marrow. The liquid is used to make a concentrate that they inject into your damaged tissue that is intended to promote healing.


When would I need restorative medicine? 


Restorative medicine is a leading treatment approach for a torn meniscus, disc herniation, spinal stenosis, and other injuries affecting the tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and joints. 


Additionally, restorative medicine has excellent results when used as part of a pain management program for osteoarthritis and other types of chronic joint pain. 


How do functional medicine and restorative medicine work together?


Functional medicine emphasizes optimal whole-body function. It involves finding the root cause of pain and illness and then solving the problem from that perspective. So, restorative medicine works well within functional medicine because it focuses on true healing. 


Alongside restorative medicine treatments, functional medicine includes:

  • Functional blood chemistry analysis
  • Apex Energetics™ nutritional support 
  • Standard Process® whole food nutritional supplements 
  • Intravenous (IV) therapy

Another aspect of functional medicine is functional rehabilitation, which strengthens your body, improves your overall physical function, and provides pain relief.


What types of functional rehabilitation work alongside restorative medicine? 


NeuroSpinal Institute of Broward offers a suite of functional rehabilitation services, including:


Nonsurgical spinal decompression


Decompression separates the spine briefly and helps restore its ideal alignment to ease pain and improve movement.


Normatec compression therapy


Compression therapy uses dynamic air compression, enveloping the legs for the ultimate massage experience. It’s proven to reduce inflammation, decrease swelling, and promote healthy circulation. 


Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS)


EMS uses light electrical impulses to help improve circulation, promote repair, and reduce pain.


Vibration plate


Vibration plate therapy can mimic the effects of exercise in people who aren’t able to be physically active, such as those with multiple sclerosis (MS), arthritis, and stroke victims. 


IV therapy


IV therapy can correct nutritional imbalances quickly, but it’s also able to improve recovery, boost energy, enhance general wellness, and more.
