Not all PRP Created equally. One ☝️ size does not fit it all. I treated a shoulder and knee problems with different PRP preparations today. A colleague of mine asked me why does it take 1.5 hours to do a knee or a shoulder injection like what the guy down the road does. That made me think about the answer deeply. The answer is Musculoskeletal structures pathologies need different treatment with different Plasma preparations. Treating the Joint as an organ system is more complex than a simple injection that the guy down the road can do. It needs proper planning after understanding the pathology to know what to address and how to address it. Thats not to add the extensive training required to do it under image guidance #regenerativemedicine #prp #plateletrichplasma #orthobiologics #stemcells #stemcelltherapy #musculoskeletal #pain #chronicpain #healing #fitness #advancement #osteoarthritis #sportsinjury #arthritis #ehlosdanlossyndrome #fibromyalgia
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.
With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?
Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.
New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

A market in Kerikeri will no longer have golliwogs for sale, after complaints the dolls are a racist stereotype of black people. But some people say the dolls are a harmless reminder of childhood. What do you think?
