Good Lunchtime training today with my Professor, John Machado. @johnmachadotv – I've been dealing with some severe shoulder issues since March and continued to train Jiu-Jitsu and do my normal activities and it just kept getting worse. After an MRI, two doctors told me I needed surgery to repair the torn labrum and AC Joint. I ignored them and tried physical therapy but another couple months passed and I was still in a great deal of pain and things were getting worse. I had heard about stem cells through various sources and ended up visiting @rmiclinic – Riordan Medical Institute. A week later I followed through with the Stem Cell Procedures, using my own bone marrow and umbilical cord stem cells. I have to admit I wasn't overly confident but wanted to give it one last shot before going under the knife. After 4 weeks, I began to feel better. I also incorporated #kaatsu Blow Flow Restriction Training into my regimen thanks to good buddy Dr. Roberts @aaronarndtwn – Kaatsu is amazing and I will use it forever. Needless to say, I started training Jiu-Jitsu and lifting again full time at 11 weeks post Stem Cells and I'm getting stronger every day. Its been a very long 6 months for me but I recognize this is part of my journey. I am writing to let others know that these two methods DID work for me. Stem Cells are not FDA approved and there's not a ton of research out there so I wanted to share my experience. I realize I'm a pain in the butt when I can't train Jiu-Jitsu so I wanted to thank everyone who dealt with me, lol. If you know you know. Oss
