NRRT: Neuro Regenerative Rehabilitation Therapy
NRRT is a combinational and holistic approach for neuro- degenerative and aging diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, stroke, multiple sclerosis and other degenerative conditions.
It encompasses physiotherapy, occupational therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, yoga, meditation, and naturopathic treatments.
Regenerative rehabilitation is the combination of regenerative biology with approaches for physical medicine.
Regenerative Rehabilitation is the integration of principles and approaches from the fields of rehabilitation science and regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine mainly focuses on the healing or replacement of tissue lost to injury, disease, or age, primarily via the improvement of endogenous stem cell function or the transplantation of exogenous stem cells. The target of rehabilitation science is the use of mechanical and other stimuli to boost functional recovery. The field of Regenerative Rehabilitation integrates these two approaches, with the ultimate goal of optimizing outcomes.
These therapies are particularly important to the field of physical therapy as we strive to improve an individual’s functional capacity, which is often limited by persistent deficits stemming from processes such as scar tissue deposition, decreased muscle mass or loss of innervation. By alliancing with technologies, regenerate tissues (including bone, muscle, cartilage, ligaments, and nerves) may be able to increase the functional gains made by patients following injury or disease, and ultimately improve their quality of life through rehabilitation. Toward that end, regenerative rehabilitation is the amalgamation of principles and approaches from rehabilitation and regenerative medicine with the main goal of spreading innovative and effective methods that promote the repairing of function through tissue regeneration and repair.
Physical therapists are playing a vital role in the rehabilitation of patients who undergo regenerative procedures such as stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma injections.
The Rising Relationship between Regenerative Medicine and Physical Therapeutics
Rehabilitation Experts not only must be aware of pioneering medical advances as they relate to regenerative medicine but also must work efficiently and closely with basic scientists to mentor the development of clinically relevant protocols. The purposes of this article are to provide a recent perspective on biological approaches to the management of musculoskeletal disorders and to highlight the needed integration of physical therapeutics with regenerative medicine.
Physical rehabilitation optimizes the quality of life for people with limitations imposed by functional loss resulting from disease or trauma. The practice of physical therapy has continued to change as scientific and technological innovations have guided clinical practice.
Cellular therapies traditionally involve the introduction of cells into a targeted system or tissue to promote a desired response. The overarching goal is to replace or restore tissue reparative functions that have been lost because of injury, the aging process, or disease. Transplanted cells may act as pharmacological agents, exerting paracrine influences or stimulating the cytokine secretion of donor cells to modulate the host’s regenerative response
