Radamel Falcao Amazing Recovery from ACL Injury

Written by Jing Yan on . Posted in Blog / News

Radamel Falcao made his Manchester United debut a week ago in the game against QPR. This is an amazing recovery for someone who underwent anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in January 2014. This kind of accelerated recovery is only possible in highly conditioned athletes who are motivated and work intensively with their physiotherapist post surgery. Most other patients, do not return to such high level sports until 10-12 months post surgery. Tiger Woods took 1 year before he returned to competitive action after such a surgery.

Relief and Treatment of Hand and Knee Osteoathritis

Written by Jing Yan on . Posted in Blog / News

In a Mind Your Body (Straits Times) article on June 26  2014, Dr Kevin Lee addresses a reader’s concern on relief and treatment of osteoathritis in the hand and knees.

The reader has been an active sportsman since 20, but developed early osteoarthritis in both knees at 40. Physiotherapy did not help and he stopped exercising with his hurting knees. He recently developed Heberden’s nodes on his fingers. He asked Dr Lee on what can be done to lessen the pain from knee osteoarthritis and fingers.

Dr Lee suspects that the reader has osteoarthritis in both his hands and knees. Heberden’s nodes are a common sign of osteoarthritis in the hand. For the treatment of osteoarthritis, the usual treatments include weight loss, activity modification, joint supplements like collagen or herbal preparations, injections of hyaluronic acid and physiotherapy.

This is a premium natural herbal supplement that combines the powerful anti-inflammatory and cartilage-protective properties of 4 natural herbs. This product has been 2 years in the making and it is ideal for the following patients:

1. Those suffering from arthritis (osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis) or cartilage injuries.

2. Endurance sports athletes looking for a natural solution to post-exercise joint and muscle inflammation.
