Cartilage Injuries: Nutrition Matters and Extra Virgin Olive Oil May Help!

We all know the importance of diet and exercise, but what do they do exactly to our bodies? Research shows that Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO), coupled with adequate physical activities, could contribute to the defense against cartilage degeneration by stimulating the production of lubricin, a protein that serves as a critical boundary between opposing cartilage surfaces. … Continue reading Cartilage Injuries: Nutrition Matters and Extra Virgin Olive Oil May Help!

Stem Cell Therapy May Improve Aging Frailty: Clinical Research Suggests

Frailty is a geriatric syndrome that often involves decreased muscle strength, weight loss, and lower activity levels. During the aging process, a distinct physiological feature is the decrease in stem cell count as well as its production. A study recently published in Journal of Gerontology shows that intravenous stem cell infusion could ameliorate some of … Continue reading Stem Cell Therapy May Improve Aging Frailty: Clinical Research Suggests

Durolane: A New, Purified, and Effective Joint Lubrication For Osteoarthritis

FDA rarely issues premarket approval for orthopedic drugs and medication. However, Durolane, a one-time hyaluronic acid (HA) injection made by Bioventus LLC, has scored such an honor. The injection contains joint lubrication, which provides anti-inflammatory factors and thus reduces joint pain caused by osteoarthritis (OA). According to an interview by Orthopedics This Week with the … Continue reading Durolane: A New, Purified, and Effective Joint Lubrication For Osteoarthritis

Animal Research Shows the Effectiveness of Curcumin in Preventing Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA), also known as “wear and tear” arthritis, is usually caused by degenerations in the connective tissue within a joint. The affected joint often shows swelling and stiffness, which result from inflammatory response following the degeneration. A recently published research study in animals showed that Curcumin, a known joint protective substance, could inhibit a … Continue reading Animal Research Shows the Effectiveness of Curcumin in Preventing Osteoarthritis

Vibrational Forces Stimulate Bone Tissue Formation

When bone tissues are damaged, patients often face very limited options in treatment or full recovery. Scientists and engineers have also been trying to recreate bones using various techniques, such as tissue engineering and 3D printing. Recently, a new study shows that regrowth of the bone might be able to achieve through nanoscale vibration, a method that … Continue reading Vibrational Forces Stimulate Bone Tissue Formation

Surgery Increases Risk of Chronic Opioid Use

  Chronic use of opioid-based painkillers has become an epidemic as well as a pressing issue in healthcare. Although opioids allow immediate pain reduction, medical providers are generally opposed to chronic use, which offers little efficacy but is associated with many risks, such as dependency. While opioids still remain to be the standard treatment to … Continue reading Surgery Increases Risk of Chronic Opioid Use
