It starts with an evaluation, a Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate intervention, a custom brace, and sports specific physical rehabilitation protocol that changes with the seasons, a nutritional consultation, a dietary supplement prescription, and a Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma/Lysate Booster when appropriate. That’s my recommendation for hiking, biking, climbing, skiing, staying fit and fly-fishing. These far reaching futuristic statements are based on my clinical research, anecdotal observations on patients who join me in the aforementioned activities and my own lifestyle. Should your impairment return once you are a Sheinkop alumnus, or should you see an increase in arthritic related symptoms, do it again in a year or five.
You are what you eat is in part a truism. So too, you can be what you want to be. Sure we age and sure we all have to live with age related adjustments; the answer is not to quit. Take my prescription for maintaining or returning to the active life. To learn more, call for an appointment. As an example, we have changed our visco-supplementation formula because of a new development to one injection rather than three. We have improved our Platelet Rich Plasma formula to be much more effective than last year and we are constantly updating our Bone Marrow Concentrate formula.
So what’s in the Cellular Orthopedic news? “Novel Technology to increase Concentrations of Stem and Progenitor Cells in Marrow Aspiration.” Headline this weekend and I looked into it further. After all, I have a responsibility to my patients to stay in the forefront of new developments. As I delved further, I found that this “advanced” technology was tested on three patients before being brought to market. My analysis of this “breakthrough”, come back when you are for real. Then came the Alpha 2 Macroglobulin filter positioned to compete with Platelet Rich Plasma methodologies. The cart was put before the horse on this one, as we don’t even know if Alpha 2 Macroglobulin will work on a human. Then there is the Hip-Spine connection; but I will save that for next time.
