If you plan to have hip replacement surgery, you’ll want a highly qualified orthopedic surgeon to perform the procedure. How do you find the best orthopedic surgeon who is right for you? Here are important factors to keep in mind.
The Practice of Phototherapy
The practice of phototherapy, which has been around for about 100 years, uses light to improve the health of the body. And modern forms of phototherapy such as Low Level Laser Therapy, which is believed to reduce the appearance wrinkles in the skin, are very well understood scientifically.
But this idea is nothing new. As far back as two thousand years ago, the ancient Greeks had a center for studying the effects of different colored lights on human health. Even the ancient Egyptians, who promoted health by focusing sunlight through colored glass on certain areas of the body, understood this concept.
Your body emits heat in the form of infrared light. Our patches are designed to trap this infrared light when placed on the body, which causes them to reflect specific wavelengths of light. (see Usage Tab for placement instructions). This process stimulates specific points on the skin that signal the body to produce health benefits unique to each LifeWave patch.
Each patch is exclusively designed to reflect particular wavelengths of light that stimulate specific points on the skin. This enables each patch to provide unique health benefits. No drugs or chemicals enter your body.

Whether you have pain that just won’t budge or you want to enhance your immune health system, these patches can be used with or without PEMF therapy. I’m a believer… Of both.
Try them out! Lifewave x39 patches.
Activate your stem cells with Patented phototherapy that is designed to elevate a peptide known to enhance stem cell activity.
Backed by over 10 years of research and development, as well as many clinical studies, X39® has been shown to provide an abundance of health benefits related to:
- Activates stem cells
- Mental clarity
- Energy and vitality
- Workouts and recovery
- Skin appearance
- Quality of and duration of sleep
- Minor discomfort relief
To further understand the technology of the patches, we must understand a biological principle, namely that our body is as much electromagnetic as it is chemical. The patches are activated by a combination of body heat and the presence of the body’s electromagnetic aura.
These patches are made of amino acids and sugars and arranged molecular (nanotechnology) to become a sort of radio transmitter… sending magnetic signals that instruct the body’s cells to complete a certain function.
However In order for these mechanisms (to be able to respond to light), the cells of our bodies have what are called “photoreceptors”. The pharmaceutical model works with some type of drug or nutrient to produce a chemical response. Our cells can take in photons of light and produce chemical changes in the presence of different frequencies of light to be used for healing.

Joint replacements reduce pain but sometimes they can limit a person’s range of motion. But a particular type of hip replacement allows patients full range of motion. Dual mobility hips

Well, let me begin by welcoming you to my hip journey. I think we all can agree that we are first told we need a hip replacement (or two) – everything starts moving in slow motion and we leave our bodies. I was told I was too young and lingered in pain for two years and until I could no longer walk without a cane. I began to keep a journal and wrote in it daily as I hibernated from the outside world. The journal became a WordPress blog and a place for me to release my emotions as rapidly as they came up. Three years and two hip replacements later, I began rebuilding my life. I, like many, had complications which triggered me even more into googling, connecting, writing and remembering to breathe. Breathe. Breathe. S L O W down.
No matter how you applaud yourself (or if you even do after everything you’ve been through)…we applaud you… as you have now become a proud member of the Hipster Club… a community of bionic men and woman around the globe.
No one understands bone-on-bone pain or the landscape of the unknown until they face the challenges of a reduced quality of life and the fear of surgery. And, until you have sources of information, support and the knowledge that experience brings…it can be a scary process… Especially to go through or face alone.
For example, I would never have known, if I didn’t receive some good tips from a fellow hipster, to ask for anti-nausea pills in the hospital (caused by the pain medication). I wouldn’t have known what special devices to get (my grabber was incredible), or to hook myself up with a buddy to go on walks with or bring me food or take care of my pet in the early days after my hip replacements.
That’s why I created Hipster Club!
Hipster Club is here for you:
- For support, and to know you are not alone – we are a club, an initiation into becoming bionic.
- We get to share our experience, knowledge and become a community for each other to get and stay out of pain within our new bodies.
- We get to give and get advice and encouragement during a scary transition. I must add that things have become a bit different from when I got my first hip replacement (at 50). Now they have what I call “drive by replacements”…all in the same day. Every year, every month, every day – they have new developments in replacement surgery. And now with 3-D printing, joint replacements will become totally customized to your own body.
So, I welcome you to the land of becoming bionic and I thank you for finding your way here to The Hipster Club.
Look through the site and find resources, research, emotional support and the newest technologies to strengthen your body and begin your healing journey.
Don’t go it alone…ask for help from people who have been through hip replacements…
I have to admit when I first was diagnosed with hip dysplasia and AO I was shocked and scared. Besides the bone-on-bone killer pain, I suffered from “why me” and I couldn’t understand how it happened. I wasn’t a runner (I’m a walker), I wasn’t a professional dancer (I was a swimmer) and no one in my family had hip issues (in my immediate genealogy line). I was frightened, alone and spent far too much time researching online and meeting with orthopods. Looking back now, what the pain and panic did provide was education and motivation to help others find a path to becoming more pain free and a better self-advocate. That is what this site is about, that is what I learned and what I am focusing on…education and advocating for yourself.
One of the things that really helped me is PEMF Therapy, I was introduced to it prior to my surgeries when I researching ways to lessen my pain and extend the time before I had to cry “uncle”. Stretching in a YMCA swimming pool with senior citizens (wearing shower caps) and using PEMF Therapy at home became my staples. During recovery and many years later, I remain a fan and spokesperson for PEMF and all it does for the immune system and to reduce inflammation (which causes pain).
PEMF devices are a popular option for patients suffering from chronic pain, autoimmune conditions and inflammation, even brain conditions with the Brain Entrainment aspect. The body mat energizes the cells in your body. Other accessory PEMF devices provide more direct pulses of energy for localized pain. For example, if you are having difficulties with pain in your knee joint, a PEMF paddle is a beneficial option for delivery of pulses directly to the joint.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields or PEMF help the body heal itself through enhancing its natural healing mechanisms on the cellular level. The most basic cell functions are to generate energy, eliminate waste, to repair and regenerate itself and perform its most basic function which depends on the type of cell. PEMF acts on basic functions of the cells. Magnetic fields cause motions of ions and electrolytes in the tissues of the body. This movement stimulates an array of chemical and electric action that helps the body heal itself. Through the increase of motion of ions and electrolytes, PEMF helps cells create more charge at the cellular level. This charge or energy is called ATP, which is how the cell (in the part of the cell called the Mitochondria) produce energy. This is where glucose is turned into energy, this is what gives us life. Low levels of ATP cause cells to be sick and have trouble to heal, and function poorly. This is because the cell has to work harder to make energy for its functions. So just like us, when we have to work harder for an extended period of time, to do our daily tasks, we get tired and make mistakes. When the cell does this, it leads to disease.
