Discover the power of fat for your orthopaedic issue
Adipose tissue is a versatile tissue that plays an essential role in various physiological processes. Several studies, over decades, have encouraged scientists to investigate the healing properties of fat. There are even examples in the literature of how adipose tissue was used in the care of soldiers during the First World War. So what have we learned from scientific research and history? That fat can help support the body’s repair of damaged tissues. In short, fat does not deserve its bad reputation and can be used to facilitate healing processes.
Adipose tissue, commonly known as fat, has many natural reparative characteristics that help to promote a healing environment throughout the body.
