If you are suffering from arthritis pain, one of the therapies that you can take advantage of is stem cell therapy. While the science behind this treatment is relatively new, there are signs that it is better than the traditional medical treatments for arthritic pain. There are many stem cell therapy clinics out there and if you live in Massachusetts, one of the centers that you can go to is the Complete Pain Care Center.
It has locations in Framingham, Needham, and Marlborough. Any one of these branches can help you with stem cell treatment for arthritis. For you convenience, you will find the complete addresses of these locations on this page: https://www.completepaincare.com/locations-and-directions/.
If you are like most patients, you probably only heard about the near-miracle effects of stem cell treatment for arthritis but do not know exactly how it works. Well, to get to the bottom of this treatment, you have to understand what stem cells are. Stem cells are so-called blank canvas cells that can be formed into any type of cell. They are found abundant in the bone marrow as well as in the placenta and umbilical cord of newborn babies.
Once stem cells are extracted from the bone marrow or the placenta and umbilical cord, they are then processed in a centrifuge so that they become concentrated enough to be injected into the affected area. But the process does not stop there. Platelets are then injected so that the stem cells are “pushed” into forming bone, cartilage, muscle and, fat in the area affected by arthritis. As we said before, stem cells are blank canvas cells and they need to be injected with platelets to form into the desired cells.
Because it is a relatively new type of treatment, most insurers do not cover it, and, to be honest, only patients who have deep pockets are able to afford it, at least for the moment.
If you live in Massachusetts, just know that Complete Pain Care is really just one of several stem cell centers that you will find in the state. However, because of its multiple locations, you can say that it is one of the better ones.
The center offers bone marrow-based treatments, however, it does not claim to be able to treat all patients suffering from the pain of arthritis. Often, patients in the advanced stages of the disease do not respond well to stem cell therapy. If you have been diagnosed with arthritis, do not waste and have yourself tested if you are a viable candidate for stem cell therapy.
Is the process painful? It is relatively painful as you will be injected with anesthesia when the doctors remove 60cc of your bone marrow.
Complete Pain Care Center does not just address arthritic pain. If you take a look at its official website, you will see that it also offers treatments for patients who are suffering from migraines, muscular pain, and back pain.
There are times during a students educational journey when certain classes can seem to get the best of the student. One of those classes many times is math class, as it is really, many times, coming at the student from a different direction than he or she is used to.
The terms and nomenclature of math is different than the everyday life of the student, and this may be a first encounter with a new, and strange subject with as much detail as a math class can entail.
In cases such as this, it is not unusual for the parents of a student in this kind of situation to hire a math tutor to help the student with one-on-one instruction. This can be an excellent way to “get over the hump” so to speak and gain understanding in a better way than is possible in a classroom setting with other students.
A good tutor in math will have a full grasp of the subject matter, yet what is more important is that the tutor will be fully capable of getting the concepts of whatever stage your student across to him or her.
A tutor has to have very good skills in communication as well as an empathy that has no limits. Students who cannot grasp a concept will have more difficulty than most, because nothing will make any sense at all to the student until he or she understands the concept.
Then too, with math there are a lot of procedural steps to problems, where if the student can learn the steps the problems can be solved by simply memorizing the steps.
For example, Algebra is all about solving for unknowns, and if the student learns the processes that it takes to find the solution for the problem, then the rest is made much easier. Algebra is one of the basic forms of math that is used a lot in computer programming, as there is a lot of variables that have to get solved before a program can move on in a sequence.
Each student will have different needs and different ways that they learn. A good tutor must be able to find out how the student learns best, and then gravitate the teaching so that it accommodates the learning method that the student uses the best.
It has been said that the best learning occurs when visual, audible and tactile forms are all combined into one grouping. For example if the person is a visual learner, he or she will respond best when it is “seen” by the way of an illustration step-by-step, or a picture.
If that can be combined along with audio, or an audible explanation, the audio will enhance the video. So a math tutor would illustrate the working of a problem with an audio explanation as the problem unfolds.
Math is like music in that it can also be learned well when it is practiced over and over. So the tutor will have the student do just that with problems until mastery is the result. It is easier to help a student in this way on an individual basis, thus the advantage to tutoring.
