    Müller-Wohlfahrt explains that for muscle injuries what he usually injects are highly dilute plant extracts — a product called Traumeel, apparently available in 60 countries. But he also injects an amino acid mix called Actovegin, derived from calves’ blood, to shorten healing time.

    A Little-Off Topic

    Ed,
    I saw in another posting last night, but I don't rememeber which one that you were urging someone if they couldn't do anything else to do pool therapy. What exercises did you do in the pool before your surgery? What would you think easiest to do? I used to love swimming, but don't think it currently works for me. And I was trying water walking, thinking it easier than on land, to mixed results. Any thoughts welcome. Thanks.

    what does he mean..."scoliosis is not as bad as it sounds..." ??
    he could become a great spokesperson, if he wanted to....
    but personally, i do not believe that comment is helpful..
