The blog has been quiet for a while as this season I am President of the Canadian Association of Orthopaedic Medicine. Basically this means a lot of conference planning and organising, and dealing with any day-to-day issues that arise. We are hosting a conference on platelet-rich plasma in Sidney, BC in May, and then the main CAOM conference is set for October in Victoria. Go regenerative medicine! The way of the future...
Our colleague from Kelowna, Dr. Francois Louw, has just published a well put-together study on prolotherapy for TMJ (jaw) pain. It is yet another excellent randomised controlled trial (the best kind of study) showing how effective this simple treatment can be. Well done, Dr. Louw! (You can see the details under our Research tab, in the prolotherapy section).
