It is time to PUMP up your STRENGTH!
Did you know that there is more to strengthen than simply hitting the gym to pump iron?!
The human body is the most INCREDIBLE machine on the planet with a BUILT IN system to STRENGTHEN. And, strengthen is the 3rd pillar of RISE.
Leading the way in strengthening and injury repair and recovery: Regenerative Medicine and Orthobiologics.
Recent research shows that certain surgeries, like an arthroscopic partial meniscectomy, are no more effective than physical therapy. And what’s more, another study found that patients with osteoarthritis who underwent placebo arthroscopic surgery were just as likely to report pain relief as those who received the real procedure.
The takeaway? Surgery is not always the answer. So what else is there?
Regenerate NOT Operate
Regenerative medicine treatments, called Orthobiologics, are one way renew and repair tissue as well as treat orthopedic and sports medicine injuries as well as injury prevention. And, you do not have to be a professional athlete (or even consider yourself an athlete) to get these treatments. Rise offers two options.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment uses natural growth factors found in a patient’s blood, called platelets, and injects them into the site of a patient’s injury to promote healing.
PRP injections have beneficial effects including
- helping injuries heal faster
- diminishing pain
- repairing tissue Read more in the full blog post.
Stem cell (or Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate) therapy uses a concentration (from your own body) of stem cells, growth factors and interleukins (messengers of cellular behavior) found in a patient’s bone marrow taken from the hip to promote growth and healing, too. If you’re considering surgery on a sports-related injury or issue, know that there are other options like regenerative medicine—the ultimate biohack. How COOL is that?!
