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

Study Suggests that Physicians Who Feel Your Pain are Best at Healing

Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School conducted research on 18 physicians that showed doctors could relate to the pain the patients go through and want to make it better. By tracking the brain activity of the physicians through a functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) scanner, the researchers concluded that when the physicians … Continue reading Study Suggests that Physicians Who Feel Your Pain are Best at Healing

Orthopedics this week: Women are at three times the risk of rupturing ACL

A recent article published in the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (JAAOS) shows that female athletes are 3 times more likely than male athletes to rupture their anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). These injuries are becoming more prevalent in female athletes as they have increased their participation in sports. Therefore, more research is … Continue reading Orthopedics this week: Women are at three times the risk of rupturing ACL

New research planned on Stem Cell Therapy for Knee osteoarthritis

Researchers at Rush University Medical Center have released their research plan to study the effects of Cartistem, a new stem cell therapy for the potential regeneration of cartilage and pain relief in the knee. Cartistem is made from mesenchymal stem cells, which are cells that can differentiate into bone and cartilage cells. These mesenchymal stem … Continue reading New research planned on Stem Cell Therapy for Knee osteoarthritis
