Implant lets patients regrow lost leg muscle
MIT Technology Review
Five people who suffered serious leg injuries have been able to regrow muscle tissue in their legs thanks to a new regenerative medicine treatment. The new treatment requires intensive surgery to remove scar tissue, after which a biological scaffold is sutured in. Within two days, the patients began an intensive physical therapy regimen that helps direct the development of stem cells in the body that are drawn to the implant. Once the stem cells reach the implant, they start making new muscle tissue.

WebPT
The private practice rehab industry loves to talk marketing. We all scour the Internet for ways to improve referral marketing, online marketing, print marketing. But clinic directors, managers and therapists alike seem to adamantly avoid or abhorrently oppose anything related to sales. We absolutely shouldn't and, more importantly, we can't. While marketing and sales are two distinct aspects of business, they're inherently linked, always working in tandem. And for your PT, OT, or SLP business to be a success, marketing and sales need to take a page from Forrest Gump and Jenny: always be together like peas and carrots.
