Orthopedics 2.0 – How Regenerative Medicine and Interventional Orthopedics will Change Everything
Written by Dr. Chris Centeno, this e-book delves into the human musculoskeletal system and explains how everything works together in concert to maintain our physical wellbeing. When a single component in this chain is damaged, it can lead to a cascade of joint, spine and connective tissue problems, resulting in chronic pain. Using the Regenexx SANS approach, Orthopedics 2.0 walks you through a series of tests and exercises that you can do on your own to better understand where your own body is struggling to maintain proper stability and alignment, explaining the possible reasons and long term implications along the way. Orthopedics 2.0 also explores how Regenexx is pioneering the new field of Interventional Orthopedics, where the use of regenerative biologic treatments, such as adult stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma, are being used to help repair and strengthen damaged tissues, as opposed to invasive surgeries that often remove important tissues when a joint or the spine becomes damaged.With hyperlinks to more detailed information, related studies and commentary, this book condenses a vast amount of data and resources into an enjoyable and entertaining read.This is the third edition of Orthopedics 2.0 with even more content and graphics.
The Spine Owner’s Manual — How to Avoid Back Pain & Life Altering Surgery
Written by Dr. Chris Centeno, this e-book delves into the spine and how it functions within the human musculoskeletal system and the body as a whole. Everything within the body works together, like a precisely tuned symphony, to support our well-being, and a healthy spine and all of its component parts (e.g., spinal nerves, ligaments, muscles, etc.) are critical to full-body health. When a single component in the spinal chain is damaged, it can lead to a cascade of problems not only in the musculoskeletal system but throughout the body and even further spinal damage when it goes untreated. The result is chronic pain anywhere in the body that with the proper diagnostic approach can be traced back to the damage in the spine.
Using the Regenexx SANS approach, The Spine Owner’s Manual provides a series of tests and clearly defined exercises that you can do on your own to measure and monitor your own spinal health. It will allow you to investigate where your own body might be struggling to maintain proper stability, articulation, symmetry, and neuromuscular function and will help you make the connections between these deficiencies in other parts of the body and the spine.
The Spine Owner’s Manual also explores how Regenexx is pioneering the new field of interventional orthopedics, where the use of regenerative biologic treatments, such as adult stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma, are being used to help repair and strengthen damaged tissues not only in the spine but in the entire musculoskeletal system. This is contrasted with invasive spinal surgeries, which often remove important tissues or permanently fuse, or immobilize, segments of the spine when it becomes damaged. With hyperlinks to more detailed information, related studies, and commentary, this book condenses a vast amount of data, images, and resources into an enjoyable and informative read. This is the first edition of The Spine Owner’s Manual, a companion book to Orthopedics 2.0.
Nutrition 2.0 is a concise guide to eating and living healthy, written by Regenexx regenerative medicine doctor, John Pitts. The book gives a basic foundation of information on mostly diet, but also supplements, physical activity, and stress-relief to improve your life. It explains complex topics in simple terms. The book reveals the negative effects of sugar and high glycemic index carbohydrates and differentiates between “good” and “bad” sources of protein and fats. Dr. Pitts’ food pyramid is a much needed update to the outdated food pyramid the FDA recommends. This book also dispels common nutrition myths, discusses some common supplements, and gives practical advice on how to obtain an appropriate amount of physical activity.
Following the suggestions given in the guide can help you feel and look younger, prevent and supplement treatment of chronic diseases, maintain an active lifestyle, plus help you lose weight in a healthy way and keep it off. This guide is not a magic formula or quick fix program that will suddenly cure all your ailments. Nutrition 2.0 teaches you simple measures that you can implement into your daily life that require some adjustment, commitment, and dedication, but will provide a lifetime of results.
As we grow older, our body begins to send us warning messages. When these messages are ignored, small musculoskeletal problems can spiral out of control and leave us sidelined from doing the activities we love. And left untreated, these issues may lead to more chronic conditions and may permanently reset what we consider to be our normal level of fitness, performance or activity. This is why some people in their 70’s can run a marathon, while others in their 50’s can barely walk a mile.
The Regenexx ProActive program provides practical advice on understanding these warning signs and taking action to maintain peak performance through middle-age and beyond. ProActive explains how the use of biologic treatments, such as stem cells and blood platelet procedures, can help return joints and the spine to a healthy state before things go awry, ensuring that small problems don’t go from bad to worse.
Written by Dr. Chris Centeno, ProActive includes hyperlinks to more detailed information and related research that supports the Regenexx ProActive program’s approach to maintaining health, fitness and well-being throughout our middle and later years of life.
