If you live with chronic pain and don’t want to get addicted to painkillers, you may be wondering what pain management and regenerative medicine treatments are.Chronic pain can significantly hamper your lifestyle making it almost impossible to remain independent,
At one point, we were all just one single cell: a fertilized zygote formed when a sperm and egg fused together. That one cell gave rise to all of the roughly 37 trillion specialized cells that make up each of our bodies today.

A fracture in someone who is in their 70’s often doesn’t heal as quickly, or completely, as in someone much younger. For years researchers have been working on ways to change that.
