The holiday season can be a challenging time for pain management. For many, the transition to colder and more blustery weather means extra aches and pains. Beyond just the winter weather, the holidays can also be a time of added stress, excessive travel, poor eating (and drinking) habits, and too little sleep.

Over the last decade, the number of publications per year on stem cell-related research has increased 40x. The stem cell market is expected to reach $170 billion by 2020.

They’re the guys that are sometimes invisible and sometimes the point of sporting ire. The referee is a critical part of sports and arguably some of the most athletic have to be soccer refs, as they can run miles in each game chasing the ball and plays around the field. This morning I’d like to highlight an elite ref from Florida for whom having a knee replacement meant giving it all up. In fact, that’s the common thread through many of our success stories. People who love their active life not wanting to yield to the big surgeries and eventual decline into the couch.
