Patients Ask: What Is Regenerative Medicine?

Posted by on Friday, August 24th, 2018

“What is regenerative medicine” is a question that is constantly being asked in sports medicine these days. The therapy conjures up images of salamanders (or even monkeys) regrowing limbs or in reversing the natural aging process. You may even know someone who claims to be healed by it—but what does the term exactly mean? More importantly, can it help you with a current condition? The Center for Podiatric Care and Sports Medicine deals in regenerative medicine for a number of foot and ankle conditions. We’d like to share a little about what we do here at our offices in Manhattan and Westchester.

At The Center for Podiatric Care and Sports Medicine, we’re always on the cutting edge of new technology, especially advancements that could benefit our patients. This latest technology offers an exercise solution that can be done from the comfort of your home. You may be familiar with Peloton for their home spin class experience, but did you know they offer a treadmill for running at home, too? Like their cycles, the Peloton Tread offers a live-stream connection to the unit’s built-in video monitor to broadcast fitness classes in real-time or on-demand with NYC fitness trainers. Peloton opened a dedicated fitness studio to keep the programming streaming. Classes fall across a broad spectrum from boot camps to circuit training, according to Men’s Healthwho got a sneak peek at the new system.

If Those Shoes Could Talk… Well Now They Can, Thanks to Google

Posted by on Monday, March 25th, 2013

Connectivity is the buzzword these days. I wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up being the American Dialect Society’s word of the year for 2013. (2012’s word of the year was “Hashtag.” Yawn.) Point is, we’re all connected like never before, via our computers, phones, department store loyalty card buying histories, the GPS systems in our cars, mobile tracking technology on trains and planes, satellite images, Google Maps… Pretty much everything we do is recorded in some way. It would be terrifying if it had happened more quickly. But like the frog in the slowly boiling pot of water, what happens gradually seems somehow to escape our notice. Then all of a sudden we wake up one day and our shoes are telling us we’re not getting enough exercise. At least, that’s what’s going to happen if Google has its way.
