Did you know September is Healthy Aging month? The annual observance was created by Carolyn Worthington, editor-in-chief of Healthy Aging® Magazine. She states, “We saw a need to draw attention to the myths of aging, to shout out ‘Hey, it’s not too late to take control of your health, it’s never too late to get started on something new.’ Why not think about the positive aspects of aging instead of the stereotypes and the negative aspects?”

At Physical Healthcare of Jacksonville, we couldn’t agree more! Taking a proactive approach allows you to gather helpful information and make smart choices when it comes to healthy aging. It also empowers you to treat potential health issues early on – before they become chronic. As an integrated healthcare clinic, our team of medical directors, doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists can help you take charge of your health and well-being. And if you’re already battling pain from disease, arthritis or an injury, we can help you develop a plan for reducing and often, eliminating the pain. 

Renewing and restoring your body through regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine offers groundbreaking opportunities to heal the body from within and it’s one of the many ways we can help you achieve healthy aging. This promising field uses stem cells to help regenerate and repair damaged tissue and works to cure your symptoms versus simply treating them.  

Kyle S. Jackson, Co-Executive Director and Case Manager at Physical Healthcare of Jacksonville explains how it works. “Your symptomatic problem will appear as inflammation inside your body. Cytokines, known as the “foremen,” surround the inflammation and actually go after and grab the stem cells to attach them to muscle, tendon, ligament and cartilage. Within 20 minutes, the stem cells start to regenerate.” 

Good health equals happiness

As North Florida’s premiere regenerative medicine clinic, we understand the healthier you are, the happier you are. Meet NFL veteran ‘Big John’ Henderson, who received regenerative stem cell therapy in both of his knees and back. He can now crawl on the floor with his kids and per ‘Big John’ – “it doesn’t get any better than that.”

“This has been a miracle in my life.” Cynthia walked with a cane and was close to being bedridden. Regenerative stem cell therapy drastically reduced her lower back and neck pain, enabling her to return to work as nurse.
