And Let us say Amen. You may not have noticed, but last Thursday, the weekly Blog I write was not posted; because I was off for a week with my two sons fishing the flats of Ascension Bay along the eastern cost of Mexico. While I practice Regenerative Medicine and Interventional Orthopedics, I am very much aware that accompanying the notion of physical well being is spiritual well being. Every year at this time I repeat the “pilgrimage” because just as the spiritual reminds us, your knee joint is connected to your thigh bone and your hip joint is connected to your back, so too is your body connected to your mind. Regeneration and Renewal are like love and marriage; you can’t have one without the other.
I am reminded of the patient I treated two years ago with a bone marrow aspirate concentrate intervention for his arthritic knees. At the time of his first office consultation, though he only lived six blocks from my office; because he couldn’t walk that far, he took a cab. Six weeks later, he returned for follow-up and complained about his ongoing pain and his disappointment in the outcome although in preparation for the procedure, I had informed him it might take up to 18 months to reach maximum medical improvement. When I inquired as to his mode of transportation to my office, he responded that he had walked. Physically, he was enjoying an excellent outcome but spiritually, he needed renewal as well.
As I look at the storefronts in my neighborhood and in downtown Chicago, I am reminded that the holidays are not far away. As I look at the weather forecast, I see that a high of 32 degrees is forecast for November 23 and my thoughts turn to skiing and your hips and knees. What Regenexx does is renew your hips and knees for the outdoors or indoors, holidays and more. If you want a renewal of spirit, try living without pain and increasing your functional capacity. We can make this happen with our Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate/ Stem Cell interventions. This morning, a patient contacted me via e-mail to tell me about his friend who before age 55, is on his third hip replacement at the same joint. While my patient has not been totally relieved of his hip pain by my BMAC intervention, he play golf and is fully active whereas his buddy, after a third hip replacement, lives a painful, inactive life dependent on a cane. When coping with the limitations of arthritis, give the opportunity for renewal of body leading to renewal of spirit some thought and then give me a call for an appointment: 847 390 7666
