On an all-new edition of Fight Strength NSFW, the show takes a turn into the world of medicine, as it focuses on a treatment that is growing in popularity across the world. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has become a legitimate option for surgery, for many professional athletes and fitness enthusiasts. This week, Florida’s NovaGenix clinic co-founder Tim Bruce joins the show to talk about this unique treatment.

 

 

With Phil Daru unavailable as he prepares for an upcoming seminar, regular co-host Jason Burgos had the pleasure of bringing on MMA striking coach Dr. Paul Gavoni as his guest co-host. It was a fitting choice, as Gavoni is the man who introduced Burgos and Daru, laying the groundwork for what would be a podcasting partnership. Burgos and Gavoni got to question the aforementioned Bruce about the work NovaGenix does with its various PRP therapy clients.

 

The second-degree black belt spoke on why he chose to develop NovaGenix with fellow founder Andy Stock, and the impetus for adding PRP therapy to the various treatments offered at the clinic. Bruce then talked about how the process plays out -- from evaluation to recovery -- why studies on PRP can vary in results, and he told stories on many of the MMA fighters and Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioners that have used PRP for their injuries.

 

Along with interviewing Bruce, a new segment called “In the Corner with Dr. Gloves” was introduced. The segment featured Burgos asking Gavoni questions related to MMA and striking techniques.
