HIGH IMPACT- Athletics

High Impact- All athletes across the athletic spectrum share a common bond; they have all had to deal with the most unfortunate of experiences – the dreaded sports injury.  While the sweat, dedication, and commitment required to excel in the sports arena are undeniable, equally undeniable is the high impact that repetitive stress and microtrauma our tissues endure in the process.  Not all sports injuries are gruesome fractures, unsightly tears, or dislocations that defy the laws of physics.  We all know these – the instances that are played over and over in super slow motion to capture every gory detail.

Wharton’s Jelly for Homologous Tissue Support

Wharton’s Jelly for Homologous Tissue Support

Wharton’s jelly is the gelatinous substance within the umbilical cord.  It provides insulation and protection within the umbilical cord.  It is a gelatinous substance made largely from mucopolysaccharides. It contains a host of growth factors, cytokines, pathway signaling molecules, and stem cells that have regenerative properties.  Wharton’s jelly also has several other favorable characteristics including strength, flexibility, cushioning, covering, compressibility, and response to friction and shear.

Exosomes, What, When and Why

Exosomes, What, When and Why.  There has been increasing hype about the benefits of Exosomal therapy for a wide variety of medical conditions ranging from regenerative medicine applications to systemic disease such as Lyme.   But what are exosomes?  They are most easily thought of as a soup of extra-cellular messengers.  They are growth factors, facilitators and initiators, and anti-inflammatory agents.  They typically come from mesenchymal stem cells in amniotic fluid that has been sterilized and filtered.   They are rich by products of stem cells and frequently referred to as the responsible agents that make stem cells work.   Many studies suggest that stem cells work because they extrude exosomes.  If not for exosomes no regenerative response would occur.
