Hybrid Bone Marrow Aspirate

Until recently, bone marrow aspirate was essentially always concentrated.  However, there is now an ongoing debate between using bone marrow aspirate in a non-centrifuged manner and using it in a manner where it is concentrated by centrifugation. This question has generated much discussion and some

Is Physical Therapy Important After A Stem Cell Procedure?

The above diagram has an important take-home message, which is that physical therapy can accomplish many of the same tasks as stem cells.  What we have learned is that therapy, represented by “mechanical forces”, causes the formation of growth factors
