Stimulate Your Body’s Natural Healing Ability
North Texas Musculoskeletal Medicine specializes in regenerative orthopedics, osteopathic manipulation, and sports medicine. Our treatments enhance the body’s natural ability to heal by combining time-tested treatments with state of the art technology. Utilizing the most advanced, non-surgical orthopedic options available, we provide alternatives to surgery for musculoskeletal injuries.
A key concept in osteopathic medicine is that structure and function are reciprocally interrelated. In other words, structure influences function. Thus, if there is a problem in one part of the body’s structure, function in that area, along with other areas, may be affected. Our procedures remove these restrictions, allowing for maximum structural function.
Another integral tenet of osteopathic medicine is the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Procedures in Regenerative Medicine, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Prolotherapy, assist and accelerate this natural process, bridging the gap between medication and surgery.
What are these procedures?
PRP is an emerging treatment in ”Orthobiologics,” merging cutting edge technology with the body’s natural ability to heal itself. PRP therapy is designed to accelerate healing of soft tissue injuries and osteoarthritis naturally.
Blood is made of RBC (Red Blood Cells), WBC (White Blood Cells), Plasma, and Platelets. It was once thought that platelets are only responsible for blood clotting. Medical science has learned that platelets release healing proteins called growth factors that accelerate tissue healing. When the patient’s own blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets and their associated growth factors, the level of platelets is elevated from a concentration of 6% to 94%. This preparation is then injected into the damaged area, resulting in new cell growth, restored blood flow and tissue regeneration.
Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment is a procedure developed in 1874 by Andrew Taylor Still, a US physician who proposed that all parts of the body are connected by myofascial tissue. Osteopathy originated as a 19th century alternative medical approach emphasizing the physical manipulation of the neuromusculoskeletal system. OMT is a system of hands-on techniques used to alleviate pain and correct structural changes in the body. Because OMT improves blood flow and opens lymphatic pathways through the body, it also helps to nourish tendons and ligaments, relieves stress, and aids in detoxification.

Helping the body heal itself through Osteopathic and Regenerative Medicine…
In addition to treatment of injury, osteopathic procedures help to optimize overall health. The musculoskeletal system plays a vital role in health and disease. As all body systems are inter-related, a problem in one area causes other body systems to adapt and compensate, leading to inflammation, pain, stiffness and other disorders. Therefore, relieving restrictions in one area of the body allows the remainder of the body to work more efficiently, achieving optimal health. The body is actually stimulated to work as it is meant, benefiting the whole person and not just the part of the body causing pain.
