Stem Cells and PRP: It’s Time to Get Ready for Ski Season

Sep 4, 2018

The dog days of summer are fast drawing to a close. That means autumn is on the doorstep. It also means that ski season is not far away. In some of the best skiing locations around the country, the snow starts falling by the end of October. If you are a doctor who sees a lot of orthopedic injuries every ski season, you know what’s coming. Now is the time to start preparing for it.

One way you can do that is by taking the steps necessary to start offering stem cell and PRP therapies in your practice. Apex Biologix, a Utah company specializing in centrifuges, PRP kits and stem cell kits, recommends doctors consider training with the Advanced Regenerative Medicine Institute. Training can be completed in just one weekend. After that, doctors can get their equipment and supplies from Apex and start offering stem cell and PRP treatments right away.

Regenerative Medicine for Sports Injuries

It is assumed that most doctors are familiar with the basic principles of stem cell and PRP therapies. But for those who are not, a basic introduction is appropriate. The first thing to know is that both PRP and stem cell therapies are part of a broader form of medicine known as regenerative medicine.

As a concept, regenerative medicine is not about symptom management or artificial repair. It is about encouraging the body to repair itself by providing the necessary stimulation and raw materials. A good way to illustrate this is to discuss PRP injections for sports injuries.

As you already know, human blood is made up of multiple components, including platelets. Platelets are rich in the growth factors critical to healing and repair. PRP injections are intended to facilitate that natural healing and repair. By extracting blood, concentrating the platelets in a specially designed centrifuge, and injecting the resulting material into the site of injury, doctors are utilizing the body’s own natural repair mechanisms to treat the injury.

A Minimally Invasive Procedure

Apex Biologix could proffer a lengthy list of valid reasons to consider offering PRP and stem cell therapies. For example, both therapies are minimally invasive. Doctors use needles to extract and inject material, but that’s about it. The procedure is nothing compared to arthroscopic surgery.

Its minimally invasive nature makes regenerative medicine less risky to patients. The risk of infection is much lower, as is the risk of complications. Moreover, the procedures are done using autologous material. The fact that the patient is donating his or her own blood platelets or stem cells means the risk of rejection is all but non-existent.

Faster Recovery Times

Patients who undergo regenerative medicine procedures tend to recover faster than those requiring surgery or steroid injections. That makes for happier patients in the long run. Indeed, faster recovery times make a good selling point for choosing regenerative medicine over one of the other alternatives.

Does a faster recovery guarantee the patient can get back on the slopes this season? That depends on the extent of his or her injury and when it occurs. Note that patients respond to PRP and stem cell therapies differently. Not every patient reacts the same way or heals at the same rate.

The calendar turning from summer to autumn signifies that ski season is imminent. Doctors, it is time to get ready now for the influx of orthopedic injuries you are going to see over the winter months. Be ready by getting trained now. Then stock your office with the equipment and supplies you will need to provide PRP and stem cell therapies.

How the Skip Hire Industry Has Changed

Aug 12, 2018

Many of us over the years have needed to rent a skip at least once, when we were doing some building or maintenance work on the house or garden, or just having a really serious spring clean, but if you haven’t rented one for a while, you might be quite surprised at how the industry now works. There was a time when you could just throw anything you wanted into a skip and it disappeared out of view, on its way to a landfill somewhere. That was before we realised that landfills are a really bad idea, which can contaminate our waterways with a variety of toxins, while greenhouse gases, such as methane are formed from organic material being broken down anaerobically, which is very bad for the environment.

Major Recyclers

Skip hire companies today are leading the way in recycling, with most managing to recycle more than 90% of everything that passes through their hands. You can no longer just load up anything you want and send it away. Today, you will be required to provide details of what is inside your skip, to ensure that the skip hire company understands in advance, exactly what it is dealing with, and can be properly prepared in the case that anything potentially toxic is involved. Because so many materials are recycled, many skip hire companies are now in a position to be able to offer its customers recycled materials, such as aggregates at a very affordable price, saving them money and helping them do their bit for the environment at the same time.

Wood and Green Waste Recycling

Everyone is aware that we can recycle cans and bottles, but some skip hire companies like Cherry Hill Waste are striving towards 100% recycling of materials and are actively working to recycle materials like wood and green waste that might otherwise end up in a landfill. Wood waste generally refers to processed planks used for carpentry, or from old pallets, but also includes cardboard, paper, leaves and other carbonaceous materials. Green waste is fresh materials such as grass and hedge trimmings, freshly cut branches and other landscaping nitrogenous materials. Both sets of materials are fully biodegradable and can be turned into useful products.

Choosing a Skip Hire Company

If you are going to be needing a skip in the near future and want to do your bit for the environment, be sure to ask those you are talking to about how they dispose of what they collect. The industry is very competitive, so if you receive a quote that is substantially below the average, you have to question if they are a fully responsible firm in how they deal with their waste. It might be tempting to offer your business to a small company, but you have to think about the logistics of the project you are working on. If you have a delivery arriving at a certain time, you may need the skip that is blocking access to be picked up at a precise time, or it could delay everything.

A firm with a single lorry having an accident or breakdown could prove costly, and of course, be sure to ask them how green they are with your waste when it leaves.
