News just in from our client, Genlife about Bone Regrowth Through Stem Cell Therapy; Countermeasure to Prevent Bone Death

Bone death or osteonecrosis happens when the bone receives poor blood supply. According to stem cell therapy experts in Miami, the limited flow of blood can lead to weak bones that are prone to breaking. Eventually, bone death follows.

Though this is considered a rare disease, data from the  National Organization of Rare Disorders has shown that some 10,000 to 20,000 osteonecrosis or avascular necrosis cases are diagnosed in the U.S. every year. It mostly affects those between 30 to 50 years old.

Latest update from our client, Genlife about DON’T WANT SURGERY? TRY ORTHOBIOLOGICS TREATMENT FOR CHRONIC BACK PAIN

Have you heard of orthobiologics treatment? It’s a popular form of regenerative medicine in South Florida for patients who are in pain. If you’re suffering from chronic back pain and are not inclined to get surgery for it, you might have come across this term before.

According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), orthobiologics consist of substances used by orthopaedic doctors to facilitate faster healing of injured muscles, tendons and ligaments, as well as broken bones. These substances are naturally produced by the body and processed in the laboratory to intensify its concentration before it is injected into the injured area.

Orthobiologics treatment falls under regenerative medicine, which is meant to treat patients with back pain without going through surgery. At Genlife regenerative medicine, we believe that orthobiologics treatments help patients heal better and faster than traditional approaches, including surgery. In fact, there’s a growing number of athletes who have benefitted from this treatment.

Latest update from our client, Genlife about WHY A FRACTURE WON’T HEAL AND HOW STEM CELL PROLOTHERAPY CAN HELP

A broken bone or fracture normally heals without problems while in treatment. Usually, new bone tissues form and reconnect in the weeks and months following the doctor’s alignment and stabilization of the broken bone.

However, there are cases where the bones fail to produce new bone tissues that delay healing. Unhealed fractures are medically termed as nonunion or delayed union.

According to the journal Acta Orthopaedica, some nine percent of young and middle-aged adults have a high risk for nonunion, particularly for tibial (shinbone) and clavicular (collarbone) fracture. This may happen because the bone fragments that are supposed to heal do not receive sufficient blood supply and the nutrients needed for bone repair.

Latest blog post from our client, Genlife about HOW OSTEOARTHRITIS OF THE SPINE CAN BENEFIT FROM PRP

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a form of regenerative medicine which makes use of a mixture of the patient’s blood to help heal injuries. This blood is injected into the ligaments, tendons, joints and muscles to improve the patient’s musculoskeletal issues.

One common musculoskeletal condition is osteoarthritis of the spine or spinal osteoarthritis, which is prevalent among 40 to 85 percent of older people, according to the Current Rheumatology Reports. This is a degenerative joint disease is characterized by the breakdown of the discs and joints from the patient’s neck down to the lower back.

While osteoarthritis of the spine develops in old age due to wear and tear, it may also happen to people who have experienced physical trauma or are suffering from a genetic defect. Regardless, osteoarthritis of the spine leads to back pain or discomfort, or numbness and weakness of the arms or legs, according to WebMD.
