The holidays are over. Did some of your holiday celebrations and festivities find you carrying more weight than usual? As a result of those extra pounds, you may have listed losing weight to the top of your 2019 New Year’s resolutions. If you gained weight and plan to exercise more in 2019, Ortho Sport & Spine would like to remind you of a few important things to remember.
What are orthobiologics?

What are the different types of orthobiologics?
- Bone grafts, autologous blood, autologous conditioned serum, platelet-rich plasma, stem cells, and growth factors are all considered orthobiological treatments.
What conditions and injuries can be treated with orthobiologics?
- Orthobiologics can be used for injuries and conditions such as cartilage damage, joint malfunction, joint pain, osteoarthritis, rotator cuff strains and tears, ACL injuries, pelvic pain and injury, tennis elbow, knee pain, tendonitis and more.
Are orthobiologics safe?
- Orthobiologics are a safe, effective, and natural treatment option that have been shown to be highly-effective in promoting healing and recovery.
Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians uses a wide range of biologic treatments as both an early intervention treatment for conditions such as osteoarthritis, as well as a supplementary treatment to surgery to help facilitate a quicker recovery.
