From -16F/-27C to +80F/+27C, Canadian Bobsled Pioneer, Christina Smith, has sought refuge in Baja California on a vacation getaway, not only for the great weather, but to pursue regenerative joint treatment recommended by her doctor in Calgary, Canada.
Plagued with an arthritic knee due to the wear n' tear of a 12 year extreme bobsled career, Christina previously received orthopedic treatment via alternative therapies in Canada (Prolotherapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)), which proved effective, however, not successful enough for the active 50 year old, who used to indulge in a rich life of outdoor pursuits, but found herself avoiding the aftermath of pain and discomfort.
Due to the inability to receive the next level of regenerative treatment know as stem cells and exosome therapy in Canada, Christina headed South on WestJet airlines, 4.5 hours to her vacation destination off the Gulf of California in San Jose del Cabo.
Set up in a private condo overlooking the sea, our Olympic alumni was only 15 minutes from the airport and a 3-minute walk to the PRMEDICA clinic, where she received world-class treatment by the certified team of international medical doctors and staff, catering to every detail from start to finish in a highly professional manner.
Medical Tourism is gaining momentum in San Jose del Cabo, combining fun in the sun experiences with non-surgical orthopedic and/or cosmetic anti-aging procedures, all approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US.
Conscious of organic health and wellness, Christina preserves herself naturally without any cosmetic surgeries, hair dies, nips or tucks. Known for her never ending smile and positive energy, Christina’s additional gift to herself in Cabo was an anti-aging PRMEDICA treatment for facial lines done with exosomes and stem cells out of their second clinic in Cabo San Lucas. All treatments were competitive or lower in price in comparison to other regenerative retreats, without sacrificing quality and safety of service.
Having transitioned from ice on the track, to ice in her glass, Christina goes back to Calgary with fond memories and bright hopes to re-engage in an active lifestyle with gratitude towards the medical team of PRMEDICA for the availability in this day and age of alternative and regenerative care.
