The relationship between chiropractic adjustments and stem cell therapy including its benefits.

At DVC Stem, we believe in using as many natural practices as possible to aid activation and potency of the stem cells for our treatments. One of the different methods included in our treatment protocols is chiropractic adjustment by our licensed Staff Chiropractor. Chiropractic health is extremely important to overall wellness and body function, but it is often overlooked as a simple fix for back pain. In truth, chiropractic manipulation can change and improve the function of nearly every system within the body, affecting how blood flows and nerves communicate with essential organs.

Chiropractic Health

Chiropractic care involves manipulation of the spine and joints. Throughout the aging process and daily wear and tear, the spine can become misaligned. However, a properly shaped spine is necessary for nerve signals and blood to flow effectively from the brain to every part of the body. To compensate, the body’s muscles may push and pull on different parts of the spine in an attempt to create an open pathway. This is what leads to many forms of neck and back pain people experience as they age. Additionally, pinched nerves and blood vessels can cause organs to malfunction or wear down quicker over time. This also leads to many common diseases and conditions, regularly treated with medication today to simply treat the symptoms of the issue. However, through effective chiropractic care, as well as personal fitness, people of any age can improve their spinal health and train their bodies to retain the proper form. Once properly aligned, vital blood flow and a cleared nervous system can ensure the body functions properly.

Stem Cells

Stem cells have the ability to find inflammation and damage in the body and repair it by transforming into new versions of whatever cell is required. However, not all stem cells are equally effective, and external factors play a part in a treatment’s success. For instance, treatment with the correct type and amount of stem cells, but with impeded blood flow due to chiropractic stress, may result in lessened results. Without the body functioning optimally, the greatest potential of the stem cell healing abilities is not reached. Additionally, without clear pathways for the body’s nervous system to operate, it can difficult for healing to take place, and for the body to return to operating as efficiently as possible. Our Staff Chiropractor works with patients before and after treatment to ensure their bodies are fully prepared for their stem cell infusion. Their adjustments and corrections open up the spine to allow healthy blood flow and eliminate any obstructions to the nerve endings. Chiropractic adjustment is just one small measure taken at DVC Stem to ensure our patients receive the greatest benefit possible from treatment.

Tyler explains his experience at DVC Stem in the Cayman Islands.

Tyler is optimistic that he will see positive results post treatment.

"The cool thing about the Cayman Islands besides being beautiful, it was an opportunity to get some rest and relaxation allowing my body to heal and restore. I'm back in the US now and feel like I am ready to conquer the world."

2 weeks post treatment, MS patient Tyler is beginning to see amazing progress. He has been wheelchair bound for the last year and has not been able to move his legs unassisted before now.

5 months post treatment Tyler sends us an update on his progress.

"I'm able to smile better, I have more control over the left side of my face."

"I have an increased ability to grip, lift my legs higher and higher which has gone well."

Tyler is optimistic and on the right track to recovery. We are ecstatic to see his progress and look forward to more updates from him.

Only 3 days after treatment, Matthew is now able to touch his nose with his eyes closed as well as touch his thumb and pinky together. Both of which he was previously unable to do before treatment.

We are excited to see his continued progress. His story will be updated here so keep an eye out!

David Lyons

Multiple Sclerosis

Although David Lyons was able to successfully fight Multiple Sclerosis through a strict regimen of diet and exercise, he wanted to ensure he was doing everything he could to stay fit. Multiple Sclerosis can be managed with treatment, but there is currently no cure for the disease. For that reason, David came to DVC Stem years ago to use the regenerative and anti-inflammatory attributes of stem cells to aid in his fight for fitness.

The positive results he experienced enabled David to stay strong in the gym, now into his 60s, and that is why he continues to support our clinic to this day.
