Our country wasn’t the first to adopt PRP. Kobe Bryant had to run to Germany to get his first PRP treatment. And his success and his raving about his success contributed heavily to PRP’s skyrocketing popularity now. In fact, he’s the one who told Alex Rodriguez to get his PRP. Bryant is indeed the first evangelist for PRP in the USA.
One of the many health issues people with chronic pain may experience is insomnia. The ironic thing about insomnia and chronic pain is that together they create a vicious cycle. The more you hurt, the less you sleep, and the less you sleep the more you hurt. The good news is that 30 minutes of moderate walking may significantly improve your sleep quality.
If you have arthritis, you know just how devastating this condition can be. Arthritis is a term for a class of diseases that cause pain, swelling, and stiffness in the joints. It can affect people of all ages, genders and ethnic backgrounds. There are many different types of arthritis. Osteoarthritis is one type, which develops in joints with overuse.

When Los Angeles Ace Garrett Richards ended up with a disastrous lengthwise tear along his ulnar collateral ligament last May, the high-profile hurler was staring at the famed Tommy John surgery and the disappearance of a good two years of his pitching career. He wanted neither. So he sought an alternative option. And through that option, he’s back starting the season this year, just six months later. Not surprisingly, Platelet-Rich Plasma had a major role in that. (He had stem cells injection and then PRP)
One of the many benefits of a regular yoga routine is improved functional range of motion across the whole body. Greater flexibility and agility can prevent or reduce the likelihood of spine injuries and chronic pain. Many of us spend hours sitting at a desk or repeatedly lifting heavy objects as part of our workday, which can put excessive pressure and strain on the muscles surrounding the spinal column. Over time, this stress on the spine can increase the likelihood of intense compression or even herniation of vertebral discs.
Sometimes I wonder how Pro-Athletes make a quick comeback after injuries. I bet the answer is much more than the therapies and treatments they use. But first, let’s look at it objectively. How can it be that athletes like Lindsey Vonn can come back as strong as ever after surgery? She returned to the slopes to win her 64th World Cup only 10 months after her second knee surgery. Yes, we’re talking about surgery, which ordinary folks take years to recover from.
Diet and osteoarthritis - Osteoarthritis is a condition in which the cushion of cartilage between your joints breaks down and wears away. It can cause severe joint pain and swelling. Osteoarthritis (OA) is an inflammatory condition. Eating foods that contribute to inflammation in the body can aggravate their symptoms. Avoiding certain foods could help you prevent OA flare-ups.
Yoga is a combination of physical exercises, breathing exercises, and meditation. It may appeal to people as a way to stay fit and relax, but it also has practical applications for treating chronic back pain and neck pain from a herniated disc, arthritis and other conditions, as shown by several studies.
In 2011, Portland guard Brandon Roy’s thriving career was in trouble. Just 27 years old, he was at the end of his fifth year in the league and was a three-time All-Star. Yet, chronic problems in his knees threatened his career. He had six knee operations with no success, and doctors told him there was no more cartilage left in his knees. His team doctors issued the death sentence of his career — he was to play no more. If he did it’ll not only be painful but it will result in horrific results like not being able to walk for the rest of his life, he was warned.
