What are Bone Marrows?
Often called the “products of conception,” Bone Marrows are the regenerative materials found in amniotic and umbilical tissue from sources such as amniotic fluid, placental membrane, umbilical cord tissue, umbilical cord blood, Wharton’s Jelly, and bone marrow. Research on these materials has shown high concentrations of growth factors which can be used to promote cell recovery from human injury. Needless to say, bone marrow transplants for knee pain are one of the latest procedures developed within in the medical field.
Is there any controversy surrounding the use of bone marrow?
Unfortunately, controversy can surround any form of treatment. One has to merely look at vaccinations and the current measles outbreak as a topic to understand this parallel. However, in the case of bone marrow, the myths from years past have been all but debunked. What this means to you in your injury recovery through Green Sports Medicine is that there are absolutely no ethical concerns with the materials being used in our practice.
