Yoga for Recovery and Fitness

Yoga is a beneficial form of exercise. There are many different forms or styles of yoga. Although many forms of yoga are very good for developing fitness, strength, balance, and flexibility, some forms of yoga are less useful for recovering an already injured body. Some styles of yoga incorporate repetitive poses that put stress on the shoulders, which while fine for healthy shoulders, is detrimental to injured shoulders. If you actively practice yoga and have an injury, please let your instructor know before taking a class. Adaptations should be made to prevent further injury. In-person instruction by an expert instructor, as opposed to online yoga classes, can give you corrections required to ensure your safe practice. He or she can help you avoid mistakes which may cause further injury. If you feel any exercise may exacerbate your injury, don’t do it.

Doing yoga in a warm environment (95 – 108 degrees F) (as opposed to a normal temperature room) warms up your body, enhances your flexibility, and reduces your chance of injury. Although there are many forms of “hot yoga”, Bikram yoga is a fixed series of poses that was designed to be accessible to beginners and people with injuries, yet still be challenging for advanced practitioners of yoga.

Yoga is a holistic practice that incorporates the mind body connection. It works on your breathing habits, concentration skills and the ability to focus on the present. Yoga is important for all people and especially for the competitive athlete. Practicing yoga gives the athlete a very real and tangible edge.

The philosophy of yoga is based on the belief that you cannot obtain control of the body without the control of the mind. Yoga combines and integrates the mind-body connection.

Physiologically, yoga practice stimulates performance of the Central Nervous System (CNS). The autonomic nervous system is composed of two parts, the sympathetic and parasympathetic. The latter one is activated with yoga practice. Examples of parasympathetic stimulation from yoga include decreases of oxygen consumption, cardiac output, breath rate, and metabolic rate. The sympathetic system however, has the opposite characteristics. It is your “Fight or Flight,” mechanism. When you get angry or upset this is the system that gets activated. Enhancement of the CNS through yoga practice increases mind-body coordination and improves our ability to react mentally as well as physically. Enhancement of CNS also increases intelligence, decreases anxiety and provides a more effective overall interaction with the environment. Psychological investigations suggest that yoga improves mood, and aids in the development of will power.

Yoga postures are similar to active myofascial release. These postures, or asanas, help develop flexibility. In addition, they help balance, coordination and proprioception, i.e., the ability of your joints to “know” where they are in relation to the ground for any given movement. This is extremely important for any athlete because all athletics are based on the foundation of our feet, hips, and most important our pelvis which is the foundation of our spine.

Many diseases are linked to a crooked spine. If the spine is not straight, energy from the brain is distorted by pressure applied on the nerves from the associated spinal-vertebral structures. Yoga postures fosters the correct alignment of the spinal column and the spinal cord, allowing them to function properly.

Experiments have shown that illness causes the spine to misalign, and subluxation complexes ensue. A subluxation is a misalignment of the vertebral bones of the spine that irritates a spinal nerve. The complex is associated with abnormal motion or position of the spinal bones, abnormal nervous system function, abnormal function of the soft tissue, and malfunction of the spinal joints. Thus, misalign vertebrae c

an irritate nerves as they emerge from the spinal column and impinge the flow of nerve impulses. Chiropractic care may prevent this by straightening the spinal column. In addition,  Chiropractic care may help realign the spinal column and encourage the blood flow to nourish the spinal cord and associated nerve plexus.

Yoga is extremely important factor of obtaining optimal levels of health. It detoxifies your body from all of the toxins we are exposed, from the environment and from our food. Scientific investigations concluded yoga improves mind over-body coordination by increasing physical tone and awareness while improving mind and breath control which are necessary components for peak performance of the body.

COVID 19 Update

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the FL Department of Health, and County Health Departments are closely monitoring the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak. Genlife Regenerative Medicine is following the preparedness and prevention guidelines established by the CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) to protect our patients and staff.

“No Longer A Regenexx Provider”

1. COVID-19 UPDATE GLRM patients and your guests: During this time of growing concern, we believe it is our role and responsibility to prioritize the health and well-being of our patients. Like you, we are closely following the news and monitoring the Coronavirus’ impact on our community and public health. Here is the latest information regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), directly from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the World Health Organization: Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. There is no specific antiviral treatment recommended for COVID-19. People with COVID-19 should receive supportive care to help relieve symptoms. For severe cases, patient’s should contact their doctor and their doctor should help decide if hospitalization is necessary. People who think they may have been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms of the disease should self-quarantine at home and avoid going into public places.. It is OK to cancel your appointment if you develop any symptoms of the virus. You will not be charged a cancellation fee and you will be offered a new appointment at least two weeks past your appointment date. Of note to our patients and their guests, in order to keep our patients and their guests safe, we have increased the level of cleaning for the office, using hospital-grade disinfectants effective against viral pathogens. This level of cleaning will be conducted along with each normal schedule cleanings until the Coronavirus is no longer a threat to our health and safety. Dr Mahl and his staff continue to treat their patients during this uncertain time. We will be following CDC and WHO guidelines of frequent hand washing and will wear gloves during the exam and any treatments rendered during your visit. We encourage all patients and their guests to follow these best practices to help keep yourself and others healthy: • Vigorously wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If you cannot use soap and water, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60%-95% alcohol immediately after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose. Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. • Stay home when you are feeling under the weather or sick. Avoid people that you know are sick. • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing, then throw the tissue in the trash. • Avoid shaking hands. We all recognize that it is a standard greeting, but during this period of growing concerns a simple wave, fist bump, elbow bump or verbal greeting is not only acceptable but preferred by most. • Clean your surfaces frequently, cell phones, computers, remotes and other items that can collect a lot of germs. We look forward to caring for you during these difficult times. Dr Mahl and staff.

A runner’s distress: can stem cell therapy give a new lease of life to my knees?

Sports medicine refers to it as runner’s knee or patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) but no matter what we call it, it can really hurt. 

This condition affects many professional athletes as well as millions of amateur runners. It is irritating at best, but at worst it can be debilitating. Unpromisingly, incidence and prevalence studies of PFPS have shown that it accounts for up to 40 percent of knee complaints in sport, so it is undoubtedly one of the runner’s worst enemies.

Running, at any level, puts repeated stress on the knee joint, so the bones will wear down over time. If you add injuries or a combination of other factors, including genetics, you can end up with terrible pain. This can ruin your exercise plan or even derail your career. 

What treatment options do I have?

Some simple steps like resting, icing, bracing, or taking prescribed medication may sometimes help to promote recovery and bring relief to your knees. At other times when, for example, you struggle with pain caused by a breakdown of cartilage, or damage to ligaments and tendons around your knee, other options may be necessary. Then you should consider either Stem Cell Therapy or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections, both of which can promote the healing process. 

Who offers that?

Easing the suffering may require a multidisciplinary approach. So GenLife’s innovative, high-quality pain management treatments are holistically focused on our patients’ long-term well-being rather than a temporary relief from pain. Dr. Charles F. Mahl, our eminent, internationally-recognized physician/surgeon, specializes in the practice of (IROM) Interventional Orthopaedic Regenerative Medicine, so our patients receive the best possible care.

What makes GenLife’s pain management in Miami so effective?

Many of our patients who have undergone pain management treatments, such as Prolotherapy, PRP or Stem Cell Treatments for knee pain, have experienced that these minimally invasive procedures prove to be outstanding alternatives to total knee replacement or arthroscopic surgery. GenLife specializes in and promotes therapies that have been hailed as miracle cures for many conditions, from wrinkles to spinal repair. We combine an intimate knowledge of multidisciplinary skills with our passion to provide a personalized diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment process for our patients. 

Our team specializes in creating ideal health and longevity plans for patients of all ages. 

How long will I have to wait for a positive outcome?

Most patients who have sustained knee injuries want treatment options that will enable them to recover as quickly as possible and return to their physical activity.  For this purpose, as noted by National Health Institute, modern regenerative medicine has introduced the use of cell-based therapies that have opened new knee-treatment horizons. 

GenLife’s stem cell therapy in Miami offers runners these autologous injections giving them a chance to get back to training far sooner than they may have expected. How quickly or potently this recovery will occur in your knee depends on several factors including your age, genetics, injury severity, general health, and follow-up care. The regeneration process can take from a couple of weeks up to a few months while relieving or reducing your pain.

Remember that returning to sport participation should always be a decision made together by the athlete and the doctor, to achieve the best possible outcome. 

Want to speak with a stem cell therapy specialist in Miami? 

It is always rewarding to help athletes get back on their feet so let us find out if you are a candidate for stem cell therapy injections or PRP injections to treat your runner’s knee. 

Cell-based therapies have other recognized benefits, not limited to athletes suffering from a bad knee. They may be able to help you, so call 305-332-7234 or contact us online to schedule a consultation today.

Eye problems? Stem cell therapy can come to the rescue!

Experts from the Department of Health and Human Services acknowledge that the number of Americans suffering from eye diseases, including those who might fear losing their sight, can be up to 80 percent of the general population. 

According to the National Eye Institute (NEI), retinal and macular degeneration are the leading causes of loss of vision in the United States. They affect over 10 million Americans with 200,000 new cases of the disease being diagnosed each year. They can lead to light sensitivity, night blindness, tunnel vision, impaired or distorted vision, retinal detachment, or, in the worst cases, total eyesight loss. 

Such eye problems, retinal or macular degeneration, for example, can be a result of aging but also of an illness or an injury. After the age of forty, a degree of cloudy or blurred vision becomes a reality for millions of people. For that reason, new approaches to degenerative eye diseases are being extensively explored.

Stem cell technology is a revolutionary new approach that seeks to promote non-surgical treatment of diseased, dysfunctional, or injured components of the eye. The technique is to use stem cells – the body’s raw materials – to generate new cells to replace damaged cells in components, or tissues, each of which has a specialized role in the eye.

Our GenLife internationally recognized expert, Dr. Charles F Mahl, acknowledges that new biological components for the eye are not easy to obtain. This is why regenerative medicine, as it is known, may be invaluable for renewing parts of the eye that are impaired. Put simply, stem cell therapy, in which we specialize, enables the repair of components that are not working properly. It can provide a way to replace damaged cells in the eye so that they can act as new healthy cells.

Retinal and Macular degeneration

Regenerative medicine, or stem cell therapy, although it is still new and innovative, has proven potential as a cellular treatment of retinal and macular degenerative conditions. 

Deterioration of the retina (a layer of light-sensitive cells lining the back of the eye), for example, is the result of the progressive death of retinal cells. The most common causes of retinal degeneration include disease, diabetic retinopathy, and blood vessel occlusion. Our stem cell therapy in Miami can treat this condition.

Stem cells can also treat age-related macular degeneration (AMD) thanks to the ability to differentiate into multiple cell types, and an unlimited self-renewal capacity. These properties make stem cell therapy excellent potential treatment, not only for eye problems but also for various other diseases. Once the stem cells are deployed, the healing process starts. This technique repairs eye tissues in the same way that it does in other parts of the body damaged by disease or injury. 

If you suffer from vision problems and want to try non-surgical eye stem cell therapy in Miami, or just make inquiries, then Dr Charles F. Mahl will be a first-rate choice. As an eminent ophthalmologist, surgeon, and pain management specialist, he can provide you with extensive information, diagnosis, and prompt treatment regarding your vision abnormalities. 

Ever wondered if stem cell treatment can work for your eye diseases? Our GenLife Regenerative Medicine has the answer!

Although the full extent of the potential benefits is still under investigation, stem cell therapy has been proven to have impressive cell replacement properties. If left untreated, eye diseases lead to pain, inflammation, degeneration, dystrophy, loss of vision, and permanent blindness. If you are looking for a stem cell treatment, PRP therapy, or other pain management methods in Miami, please Contact Us. We offer a comprehensive scope of regenerative medicine treatment in the most private setting, so if you have any doubts or questions concerning your vision do not hesitate to make an appointment. We will be happy to help!

5 Common Causes of Ankle Pain

Ankle pain may develop for a variety of reasons, and the pain may feel different, depending on the cause. Patients who experience ankle pain may also experience some degree of swelling, redness, and a limited range of motion.

Ankle pain is common in the older population. A 2018 study has shown that 9 out of 10 older adults suffer from ankle pain.

At Genlife Regenerative Medicine and Pain Clinic in Miami, we help improve the quality of life of patients who are suffering from pain. The goal of our treatments is to eliminate the source of pain itself. Here are some of the common causes of ankle pain that our patients suffer from: 

1. Osteoarthritis (OA)

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis or joint disease. It occurs when the cartilage, which cushions the bones, breaks down. This causes the bones to rub together, resulting in pain and stiffness.

Aside from ankle pain and stiffness, other symptoms of OA include swelling, difficulty in walking, ankle instability, and popping sounds. This is a progressive condition but can be managed or slowed down with the right treatments. Research has shown that injecting platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into the affected ankle can postpone the need for surgery, or act as a safe alternative to surgery altogether.

2. Gout 

Gout happens when there’s a build-up of uric acid in the blood. This build-up is described as “needle-shaped crystals,” which could be lodged painfully in the joints. For a lot of patients, pain in the big toe, which extends to the ankle and the legs, is the first sign of gout. 

Gout pain in the ankle usually worsens at night and may feel very warm around the joints. This condition may be hereditary and may also increase the risk of patients developing diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. 

3. Achilles tendon rupture

A ruptured Achilles tendon is a very common injury for those involved in sports between the ages of 29 and 40. It can be described as a sudden pain at the back of the leg. Some patients can still move about and may even stand on tiptoes.

According to a study, it’s easy to disregard an Achilles tendon rupture because the injury can temporarily heal. Over time, however, the rupture can make the tendon weaker if it’s not given proper treatment. Research has shown that PRP can augment the surgical repair of the Achilles tendon and boost functional outcomes during recovery.

Genlife Regenerative Medicine offers PRP treatment in Miami for a variety of conditions. Don’t hesitate to contact us for inquiries. 

4. Fracture 

A broken bone in the ankle can deliver pain that radiates throughout the lower leg. It is usually caused by a twisting injury or a direct blow. It can temporarily disable the patient, especially if the fracture pushes against the skin. Treating a fracture will depend on the severity, and it might not always lead to surgery. 

5. Sprain

A sprain causes damage to soft tissues around the ankle due to overstretching or some tearing in the ligament. It may also be due to an injury to the tendon or muscles. The ligament is a band of tissue that keeps bones connected to each other. The tendons are the cords that attach the muscles to bones.

Symptoms of an ankle sprain include swelling, tenderness, and instability in the joints. Sprains are very common for those who enjoy running and other sports activities. Treating ankle sprain will also depend on the severity.

PRP is a promising treatment for patients with sprain injury. A study involving elite athletes with high ankle sprain has shown that ultrasound-guided PRP injections can help stabilize the injured joint, decrease residual pain, and help athletes return to play sooner.

5 Science-Backed Home Remedies for Joint Pain

This article is provided for information only that people have tried with some success and we do not recommend any specific one. We do recommend you see a competent qualified pain specialist and follow their advice.

 

If you suffer from joint pain, you’ll need to have regular medical care. Sometimes, however, home remedies can also be effective in reducing the pain and the stiffness in the joints and muscles.

At Genlife Regenerative Medicine and Pain Clinic, Miami, we believe that surgical intervention and high-dosage pain medication should be the last resort in treating joint pain. Here are some science-backed home remedies for joint pain that you may want to try:

1. Drinking or eating ginger 

Ginger has proven anti-inflammatory effects that work best for muscle and joint pain. Whether boiled as tea or added as a food ingredient, ginger can help curb the chemicals that stimulate the body’s inflammatory response. 

2. Smelling kitchen herbs

A variety of herbs used in the kitchen may also bring soothing effects for joint pain, such as peppermint, rosemary, and marjoram. Experts from Korea have discovered that the aroma of these herbs can lessen pain, as well as improve the mood of the person suffering from it. Therefore, they recommend using these herbs for an aromatherapy intervention for patients with arthritis. 

3. Rubbing cayenne pepper

Cayenne pepper has capsaicin, a compound that brings the heat in chili peppers. Capsaicin is actually used as an ingredient in some pharmaceutical pain ointments. You can create this topical pain reliever at home using a dash of cayenne pepper and several teaspoons of olive oil. However, capsaicin is potent, so be careful when applying this on broken skin. 

In a clinical trial of a capsaicin-based treatment, 80% of patients with osteoarthritis have experienced relief from pain for two weeks. 

4. Meditating

A study published in the Annals of Rheumatic Diseases has shown that meditation, or mindfulness-based stress reduction, has been known to help people with joint pain boost their immunity and reduce the effects of their chronic condition. Those who practice mindfulness meditation for eight weeks experienced a reduction in the duration of morning stiffness and better pain scores. Meditating has also improved their pain regulation and boosted their general well being.

5. Using hot or cold therapy

Hot and cold therapies are easy to do at home since these are readily available. A warm shower or bath and some heating pad can help relieve joint stiffness, as well as boost blood circulation that can loosen tight and aching muscles and facilitate healing.

On the other hand, putting ice wrapped in a towel or using cold packs on painful joints can help temper joint swelling. These therapies may be applied many times in a day, but cold treatments should be done for a maximum of 20 minutes at a time only.

Non-surgical treatment for joint pain

If these methods fail to work, you should consult Dr. Mahl’s for expert advice. We have several pain management treatments available at our practice, such as Prolotherapy, Orthobiologics, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), and Stem Cell Therapy in Miami. Treatment will depend on the patient’s specific condition.

According to the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, stem cells have anti-inflammatory properties and can decrease cell death and fibrous tissue formation. Their healing properties are medically beneficial for patients with degenerative joint diseases like osteoarthritis and can relieve pain.

Easy Actionable Tips to Prevent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome From Worsening

According to pain management experts in Miami, preventing carpal tunnel syndrome is challenging because so much of daily activities are dependent on the use of hands. The good news is, there are some easy and actionable measures you can do to prevent the worsening of this painful and limiting condition.

Data from the American College of Rheumatology shows that 4 – 10 million Americans suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome. This condition appears to be the most prevalent nerve disorder being experienced by middle-aged and older people.

According to the National Health Institutes, carpal tunnel syndrome is the most expensive upper-extremity musculoskeletal disorder. The treatment and hospitalization cost for this condition exceeds $2 billion a year in the United States.

Here are some things you can do to prevent your carpal tunnel syndrome from getting worse:

 

  1. Stretch your hands as often as you can.

If you’ve been working with your hands for hours, take breaks and perform hand exercises. One effective exercise is to make a fist and then release your fingers one by one, stretching these as far as you can. 

Also, shake your fingers and wrist from time to time to relax the tendons and muscles. This simple activity will help ease the building pressure in the carpal tunnel that may pinch the median nerve.

 

2. Wear wrist support to manage pain.

Sometimes, pain and discomfort cannot be avoided, especially if you’ve been working too hard or continuously using your hands. Try to use wrist support as this can help set your wrist back to the neutral position and take the pressure off the median nerve. 

If you don’t have wrist support, you can fashion a wrist splint for mild carpal tunnel syndrome pain. Experts said that wearing a splint can help prevent the wrist muscles from becoming too weak. It also reduces hand stiffness.

Keeping your wrist straight when sleeping can prove difficult, as you are not consciously aware of your wrist position when asleep. Wrist supports, or wrist splints, can solve this problem.

 

3. Be aware of your posture. 

How do you sit when you’re working at your desk? Where do your hands rest? How is your posture as you settle in your work station? Poor posture can actually contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome as the position of the shoulders, hands, and back may set off a chain of events that cause parts of your body to compensate.

 

4. Try to soften your grip.

A strong grip, especially when the wrist is flexed, can increase the pressure against the median nerve. When holding and using tools, keep your wrist straight. If you’re pounding away on the keyboard, observe how tense your hands feel and adjust accordingly. Do not bend or curl your wrist when typing. Your wrists must be as relaxed as possible.

If these measures fail to manage the pain and discomfort in your hands and wrists, you might need to consult an expert in regenerative medicine in Miami. There are several regenerative treatment options that can help ease your symptoms so you can regain the optimum function of your hands and wrists.

Stem Cell Therapy as Management for Neuropathic Pain: What Science Says

Neuropathic pain is linked to many medical disorders but has limited options for treatment, unlike chronic pain caused by inflammation. 

According to experts in pain management in Miami, this condition is caused by damage in the nerves due to many factors like spinal cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, or diabetes. Those who experience neuropathic pain feel some sort of electric shock, pins and needles sensation, itching, and numbness in certain areas of their body. 

In the U.S., this condition is more prevalent among African-American and Hispanic races compared to the Caucasians between the ages of 35 to 54 years old by around 24 to 32 percent, per the Journal of Pain Research

What Stem Cell Therapy Can Do For Neuropathic Pain

Stem cell Miami is a revolutionary approach for neuropathic pain. Because it’s still novel, the National Stem Cell Institute is currently endorsing only mesenchymal stem cells (MCS) derived from the bone marrow as the safest form of stem cell treatment.

This treatment may help patients experience pain relief over a period of time so that they can get back to their normal activities. It’s a quick procedure that may not require an invasive process or an overnight stay at the hospital. 

Stem Cell Therapy for Diabetic Neuropathy

A study in the journal Cell Death Discovery has shown that mesenchymal stem cell therapy can effectively help with the management of diabetic neuropathy. When unmitigated, this condition can bring about foot ulcers or even limb amputations in diabetics, so a stem cell therapy intervention may significantly improve a patient’s condition.  

The stem cell therapy required for this illness may entail repeated treatment for at least five months. The result, however, is very promising as 9 out of 10 patients say that they have found relief from pain, even after a 10-month follow-up. 

First Successful Stem Cell Therapy For One-Time Treatment

For years, a growing number of studies have suggested that stem cell therapy for neuropathic pain may be a more viable solution than what’s currently available, like anticonvulsants, opioids, topical agents, and surgical interventions. According to experts in pain management, Miami, neuropathic pain is often unresponsive to pain medications, which may actually bring a variety of other side effects and complications.

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.

 

How Does Bone Death Happen?

Bone death may be a complication that arises from an injury to the bone. A dislocated or fractured bone can cut off the blood supply and limit blood circulation that can lead to osteonecrosis.

For some patients, the long-term use of corticosteroid medications may also bring about bone death. Therefore, experts in the journal Open Orthopaedics advise controlling the dosage of corticosteroid medications, if not withdraw the drug completely. 

Bone death may also develop because of excessive alcohol consumption, which interrupts the proper flow of blood in the body. Some people may have osteonecrosis as a result of chemotherapy or radiation for treating other diseases. 

Unfortunately, bone death is not a treatable condition and what doctors usually do is to slow down deterioration once it has been diagnosed. The patient may take medications to alleviate the pain or do mobility exercises to maintain the range of motion. Once the bone collapses, surgery might be necessary. However, studies are now looking into stem cell therapy to completely overturn the bone disease. 

Miami Pain Clinic

Stem Cell Therapy for Avascular Necrosis or Osteonecrosis

Stem cell therapy is a new approach to treating osteonecrosis. Extensive research has been conducted in this area for decades in animals and clinical approaches have also been conducted, according to a study in the journal Stem Cell Research & Therapy. 

Such studies have shown that using stem cell therapy to treat bone death has generally resulted in positive outcomes, especially if caught early. It is both effective and safe for patients. 

The therapy involves the use of stem cells from the bone marrow combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The procedure is minimally invasive and patients can spend their recovery period at home.

Stem cell therapy for bone death is usually done on patients that may require hip replacement surgery. In fact, a 2014 study on the effects of stem cell treatment for avascular necrosis of the femoral head has shown that 86% of patients with the hip condition have experienced significant pain relief following the treatment. The patients also did not develop any untoward complications.

Choosing a Pain Clinic in The Time of COVID-19

Experts tell people to stay at home amid the COVID-19 pandemic to prevent the spread of the virus. If physical distancing and isolation measures are in place, then there’s a lower chance for the virus to overwhelm the healthcare system.

The only problem is that many people with chronic pain and other pre-existing medical conditions will still need to visit a clinic to get their treatments or undergo therapy. When staying at home is not an option, here are some things to remember in choosing a pain clinic that offers stem cell therapy in Miami to minimize your risks of contracting COVID-19. 

1. The clinic must have strict measures in place to ensure the safety of its staff and patients

At GenLife Regenerative Medicine Miami pain clinic, we advise patients and staff members who have symptoms of coronavirus, such as fever, cough, or breathing problems, to postpone their appointments. We also encourage our staff and patients who have been exposed to the virus to self-quarantine for at least 14 days before returning to work or coming to the clinic to ascertain that they are not virus carriers.

Our facility remains open even during the quarantine, and we have strict and regular sanitation and disinfection measures in place as well. This is per the guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for essential businesses that continue to operate. 

GenLife’s staff members also practice good hygiene at all times. They wash their hands, sanitize, and use gloves when necessary. We also provide sanitizers all around our premises for our clients to use.

2. The clinic must take COVID-19 seriously

At GenLife, we make sure that we up to date with the latest news and information related to COVID-19. We are also at one with the entire medical community in fighting to keep the spread at a minimum. If you have questions regarding COVID-19, you can ask our experts. They are more than willing to answer your concerns. We are keeping abreast of what’s going on within our community. We understand that our clients need to feel safe under our care, so we make sure that they do.

3. The clinic must still have available specialists

GenLife’s Miami pain clinic has a roster of dedicated and capable staff who are available to attend to the medical needs of our patients. Even if we are in the middle of a pandemic, patients with other health concerns must not be deprived of the medical help they need.

We make sure that we have available staff and specialists who can help answer your questions and give priority to their medical issues. However, we space scheduled client appointments as an added safety measure.

While COVID-19 is mainly being treated at many hospitals around the world, various diseases, including chronic pain, must still be given attention. Therefore, we continue to provide regenerative medicine solutions such as prolotherapy and stem cell therapy in Miami.
