Increase in thigh quadriceps muscle (vastus medialis) size linked with decreased pain, cartilage loss, and knee replacement in osteoarthritis

In a recent study the size of thigh muscles (vastus medialis) was evaluated to determine if it is related to decreased knee pain, cartilage loss, and knee replacement in osteoarthritis. One hundred and seventeen patients were followed over the course of 4.5 years. At the end of the four and a half years, it was … Continue reading Increase in thigh quadriceps muscle (vastus medialis) size linked with decreased pain, cartilage loss, and knee replacement in osteoarthritis

Animal study Suggests: Bone Marrow Injection Therapy as a Possible Non-Surgical Treatment Option for Meniscus Tears

Bone marrow concentrate, or BMC, therapy is being studied for its uses in the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. Tears of the meniscus, for instance, are of great interest due to the lack of blood supply to meniscal tissue. BMC injections deliver immature cells that differentiate into cells that can potentially rebuild various types of tissue. … Continue reading Animal study Suggests: Bone Marrow Injection Therapy as a Possible Non-Surgical Treatment Option for Meniscus Tears

Our Colleague in Washington D.C., Dr. Victor Ibrahim, Publishes New Case Report on Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection for Hip Osteonecrosis

Osteonecrosis or avascular necrosis (AVN) is a bone condition where bone tissue cells die due to a lack of blood supply. Fairly common in weight bearing joints, osteonecrosis is often treated with surgical procedures to re-establish blood supply or replace the entire joint. Recently, however, Victor Ibrahim, M.D. demonstrated that using a non-surgical injection of … Continue reading Our Colleague in Washington D.C., Dr. Victor Ibrahim, Publishes New Case Report on Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection for Hip Osteonecrosis
