Reply to Sketchiest track you’ve ever ridden? 11/26/2021 5:29 AM

That place is like concrete. Broke my collarbone there and will never go back.

I hope he stays with the Yamaha. I would hate for Yamaha to let him go like they did with Webb then watch him win 2 championships on a different bike.

Imagine McAdoo and Vince Friese on the track together? Complete chaos!

The only broadcasters with an accent I can stand is Grant Langston. Will needs to go.

Reply to Shoulder injury? 3/4/2021 11:40 AM

I had surgeries for both my shoulders...the right from baseball and the left from lifting weights. I thought the right shoulder would heal with a partial tear in the supraspinatous but it never did. Even after two surgeries (the first Ortho totally messed ... more »

Reply to Bad knees making me a better rider 11/16/2020 5:31 AM

I am a chiropractor so I'm very familiar with inserts and orthotics. I am not a big fan of them. You are correct in the left medial knee is smaller and that creates a "gapping" experience when my knee is put in compression. That is why it feels like ... more »

I never heard of the kneesovertoesguy but after googlling him I am very interesting in his program. Thanks!

Reply to Bad knees making me a better rider 11/13/2020 9:11 AM

The image is backwards. On the right side which is my left knee, the medial meniscus is almost gone. On my other knee which use to be my bad knee, I had a stem cell injection from an ortho Dr in Georgia who used a small dosage but it seemed ... more »

Insurance isn't going to pay anything for stem cells. They consider it an experimental treatment. I paid for my knees $16,500. I was told that prices were going up around 20%. I know they do it in the states for anywhere between $5k and $18k but what ... more »

Reply to Bad knees making me a better rider 11/13/2020 5:51 AM

I can relate to your pain. For the last 2 years it has felt like there was broken glass inside the medial part of my left knee. The orthos told me the same thing, wait as long as possible before doing knee replacements. Cortisone shots stopped working ... more »

Reply to Anyone tried PRP therapy for rotator cuff tear? 11/7/2020 5:50 AM

I just got back from Medellin, Colombia where they do the "real" mesenchymal stem cells. I also called the place in Panama to get a quote and from my understanding is they only did IV infusion of stem cells. The place in Colombia did IV infusion and ... more »

I did a quick search for the Panama stem cells. Their treatment for adults starts at $23k. https://www.cellmedicine.com/

Reply to Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection 2/13/2020 1:21 PM

That is correct. I'm guessing the average knee replacement surgery is around $50k. Lots of money in it.

Reply to Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection 2/13/2020 5:19 AM

I've been doing a lot of study on this subject. I have two bad knees and the orthos are wanting to do a partial knee replacement on the left and a full knee replacement on the right knee. In my opinion, knee replacement should be the last thing that ... more »

Chiropractors get bashed like the Yamaha 450.

Reply to Thoughts on Chiropractors? 1/7/2020 8:02 AM

You wouldn't ride the track with the front wheel misaligned so why go through life with your spine misaligned? Just like any profession, some are good and some are bad. Unfortunately, I am finding more bad ones than good ones lately.

Reply to Hope for our paralyzed motobros... 11/27/2019 8:33 PM

Outside the United States there are companies that are advancing stem cell science to an amazing level. It will soon be used to treat many different types of conditions. https://www.bioxcellerator.com/ I'm working towards covering the cost of the treatment ... more »

I hate watching mud races. Hopefully the weather people are wrong like they usually are here.

Reply to Anyone here get PSP for injury recovery? (platelet rich plasma) 12/21/2018 5:29 AM

There is a big difference between PRP and Stem Cells.

Reply to Anyone here get PSP for injury recovery? (platelet rich plasma) 12/20/2018 7:38 AM

I don't know the name of the pharma company providing the stem cells. I do know and trust the ortho and when I find out more info after the 1st, I will post it if anyone is interested.
