Over the weekends this spring and summer, I have ridden my bike with other cyclists on group rides in the Driftless area of Southwest Wisconsin. The rides may last as long as three hours and cover distances ranging between 20 to 30 miles, up and down. The groups are made up of friends and family ranging in age between 14 to 80: Sharon, Bob, Diane, Mickey, Erica, Ken, Allison, Heather, Matt, Sophia, Finn to name a few. For those not familiar with the Driftless Terrain, it is a region that escaped the flattening effect of glaciation during the last ice age and is consequently characterized by steep, forested elevations ranging from 603 to 1,719 feet. Included in the riding groups are a subgroup of my patients-still friends and family- over 70, who have undergone biologic interventions for arthritic hips, knees, and shoulders to postpone or avoid joint replacements. From time to time, these latter individuals have been featured in my Blogs as examples of what may be achieved by using your Bone Marrow Concentrate and the Growth Factors filtered from your circulating plasma to minimize the symptoms generated by arthritic inflammation and maximize the function of an arthritic joint.
So where does the theme of my Blog fit in? As the story goes, Clint Eastwood (age 88 at the time) was playing golf with singer and songwriter Toby Keith, while Eastwood was producing and directing the film The Mule, in 2018. After finishing the round of golf, Toby Keith went home and recorded “Don’t let the old man in”, sent the recording to Clint Eastwood; the recording became part of the legend.
If you haven’t seen the movie, at least you’ve heard the song here by playing this video above… there is a lesson to be learned. While a joint replacement for an arthritic joint may provide a lessening of symptoms, functional improvement is not always satisfactory. On the other hand, following a Bone Marrow Concentrate or Growth factor Concentrate application and intervention, depending on what is indicated for your particular need, your symptoms will not always totally disappear, but the pain will be diminished and function improved. You will not have burned bridges and there is a good chance that you might continue with, or rejoin your group ride. Then there is tennis golf, skiing, bowling, walking, fitness endeavors, fly fishing to consider. And now, what about structural repair of the arthritic joint defects?
