New Research from American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons finds PRP Platelet Rich Plasma more effective than cortisone injection with a 16x less risk of requiring surgery.

Award winning research was presented from Ireland showing that patients with rotator cuff tendinopathy(shoulder pain) had dramatically better results with PRP compared to steroid (cortisone)shots. 204 patients were followed for 1 year. According to the AAOS: At 12-month follow-up, patients who received a series of PRP injections were 16 times less likely to have undergone surgical … Continue reading New Research from American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons finds PRP Platelet Rich Plasma more effective than cortisone injection with a 16x less risk of requiring surgery.

Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy and Platelet-rich Plasma Injections

The plasma holds a variety of cells and growth factors essential for repair and regeneration of tissue. Tendons, like those in the rotator cuff, receive little blood, and therefore aren’t given a ready supply of regenerative substances. Platelet-rich plasma therapy remedies this problem by taking a patient’s own plasma, selecting the essential repair constituents and … Continue reading Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy and Platelet-rich Plasma Injections

New Findings Link Inflammation to Muscle Weakness in Knee Osteoarthritis

There is now evidence to suggest that muscle strength around the knee joint is linked to cartilage damage.  Stronger muscles means potentially more cartilage over the long-term. According to a study published in Rheumatology, inflammation is linked with muscle weakness. The amount of C-reactive protein, an inflammatory marker, can indicate potential areas of muscle weakness, … Continue reading New Findings Link Inflammation to Muscle Weakness in Knee Osteoarthritis

Treating Chronic Patellar Tendinopathy via Bone Marrow Concentrate Treatment

A recent study completed at the Sports Medicine and Shoulder Surgery Center in New York, New York examined the effects of bone marrow concentrate injections on chronic patellar tendinopathy. By extracting a patient’s own bone marrow from the hip bone, regenerative cells can be separated and then injected into an area of degeneration. These bone … Continue reading Treating Chronic Patellar Tendinopathy via Bone Marrow Concentrate Treatment

The Effects of Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy on Chronic Cases of Tendinopathy

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a new therapeutic technique that takes a patient’s own plasma and selects from this draw cells that repair and regenerate tissue. Using a guidance method, such as ultrasound, the repair cells are injected directly into an area of damage or degeneration to help speed the healing process. A retrospective review … Continue reading The Effects of Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy on Chronic Cases of Tendinopathy

The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine: Positive effects of Yoga on Mood, Anxiety, and Brain GABA levels

Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) is the human brain’s own chemical that is found in decreased quantity in mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and epilepsy. Additionally, yoga postures are linked with higher brain GABA levels. Therefore, a new study from the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine explores the affect of yoga versus physical activity in mood changes, … Continue reading The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine: Positive effects of Yoga on Mood, Anxiety, and Brain GABA levels

Orthopedics today: Non-union fractures healed by bone marrow cells

Researchers from the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hopstial and Keele University in United Kingdom performed a study of thirty-five patients with non-union fractures (fractures that do not heal). The cells from these sites showed decreased potential for bone regeneration and it was thought   Therefore, each of these patients received a bone marrow-derived … Continue reading Orthopedics today: Non-union fractures healed by bone marrow cells
