North Texas Musculoskeletal Medicine
North Texas Musculoskeletal Medicine specializes in Regenerative Orthopedics and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. Each of our physicians is a fully licensed Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine which promotes the structural integrity of the musculoskeletal system. Our philosophical approach to healing focuses on the body's natural ability to regenerate and to heal itself.
Regenerative Orthopedics includes procedures designed to accelerate healing of musculoskeletal injury. Platelet Rich Plasma Injections (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy are cell-based treatments that stimulate the body's natural healing process. When the demand for repair due to injury or degeneration outpaces the body's available supply needed to repair damaged tissues, an imbalance occurs. Inflammation and often arthritis result. Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma Injections (PRP) help the body to correct this imbalance by condensing healing cells and sending them directly to the damaged tissue. Regenerative Orthopedics provides effective options for soft tissue injuries and osteoarthritis, bridging the gap between medications that mask injury and invasive surgery.
Osteopathic Medicine adheres to two key concepts:
Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated. In other words, structure influences function. Restrictions in body tissue caused by misalignment or trauma prevent optimal function of the entire physiological system, limiting overall wellness. Andrew Taylor Still, MD, DO, founder of Osteopathy, proposed that all parts of the body are connected by myofascial tissue. Tiny micro-tubules within the collagen transport fluids throughout the body. This sheath is the basis of a key osteopathic principle: unity of function.
The body possesses an innate ability to repair itself. Regenerative Orthopedics maximizes this concept by combining it with cutting edge procedures such as PRP and Stem Cell Therapy. These procedures naturally accelerate and enhance this innate physiological process.
Osteopathy is beneficial for everyone because it helps the body to attain maximum wellness and function. We consider every patient a unique individual and tailor treatment to your specific needs. We view ourselves as partners with you in your lifelong journey of maintaining optimum health.
Dr. Still, founder of Osteopathic Medicine, said it quite simply: "To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease."
