Whatever way it hits you, neuropathy can significantly hamper your daily life. It makes routine activities painful and can quickly keep you from enjoying your favorite hobbies.

Once they enter your body, they search for the point of inflammation, infection, or damage and begin working to create new healthy cells, thus literally regenerating the damaged part. On the cover, there is a before and after X-ray of an 88-year-old man’s knee that received a regenerative medicine injection. It’s nothing short of amazing. We’ll share much more in the coming months on this topic with some case reports and scientific updates. Rest assured that we continue to be on the cusp of the cutting edge and are always looking for ways to better help our patients ease their pain and regain their health and vitality.

Until next month,
