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
