A patient whom I treated sent a 3-minute video of talk show host, Joe Rogan, explaining how he feels exosomes fixed his shoulder labrum tear. The shoulder is a particularly hard-working and amazing joint and the problems can be many. Most commonly, the rotator cuff has tears, the subacromial bursa is inflamed and impinging on the rotator cuff tendons, or the glenohumeral labrum is torn.
Attempts at helping the body repair have evolved over time. From masking symptoms, generating inflammation, and then using stem cells, everything has been leading up to the simple use of exosomes, the final common pathway to successful regeneration and healing.
It is now clearer that extracellular vesicles (aka exosomes) they are the primary method of communication between stem cells the other cells of the body.
Believe it or not, I have gotten several emails from patients about whether they should partake in vampirism. Apparently, the latest craze is to take transfusions of ‘young blood’ to restore their youth.
