WE ARE BACK FROM BREAK and bringing with us some biologics! When talking biologics like PRP and “stem cells” sloppy research abounds. This reality isn’t really fair to anyone trying to find a deeper understanding of what may or may not be going on here. Can we do better with this process? Can physical therapists apply some of these same reporting guidelines to their on research to provide a better “fair test”? Do you find this episode…Bohrium?
