Professional Baseball Pitcher has Shoulder Labral Stem Cells with Dr. Lox
Professional sports athletes are turning more towards stem cell therapy as an option to surgery. A professional baseball pitcher, diagnosed with a tear or torn shoulder glenoid labrum had recurring pain with shoulder movement and pitching. His fastball velocity dropped. The shoulder joint is covered with a cartilage structure called the glenoid labrum. The pitcher eventually had arthroscopic surgery. After a period of rehabilitation he returned to pitching. However, his fastball velocity never consistently returned. This resulted in his release after the season ended. Pitchers are frequently assessed by their fastball speed. An unfortunate fact is many Professional Major League Baseball pitchers do not return to pitch professionally after undergoing shoulder surgery.
This pitcher had heard about Dr. Lox, and what he did for another MLB pitcher with stem cell therapy for his shoulder, he then consulted Dr. Dennis Lox for shoulder stem cell therapy. Dr. Lox is an expert in stem cell therapy, and the utilization of stem cells for the treatment of sports and orthopedic injuries.
The pitcher after conferring with Dr. Lox, elected to undergo stem cell therapy for his injured pitching shoulder with Dr. Lox.
After his stem cell treatment with Dr. Lox, he began training after a rest period time with his athletic trainer. Slowly he progressed over 4-6 months, then he began to throw faster, until reaching his pre-injury and surgery velocity of over 90 m.p.h.
Baseball pitchers are often measured in velocity of their pitches. The radar gun reflects the velocity of the pitch. If the pitcher throws fast enough, watching scouts are interested, and they may be resigned by a baseball team on the spot. This is the nature of professional baseball. Performance not loyalty dictates play and contracts. Many professional baseball pitchers are analytically looking at surgical statistics for their career. While shoulder labral and even Tommy John elbow surgery, may reflect 2/3 return to pitch. Duration of professional pitching is statically not long for these pitchers.
A few gifted ones pitch for years after and have long careers, however this is not the norm. This makes stem cell therapy for professional baseball pitchers with shoulder and elbow problems all the more attractive.
Not only baseball players, but weekend warriors from weight lifters, bodybuilders, tennis players, and golfers, are prone to shoulder disorders. Loss of their ability to play, may not be their career, but it often is a stress relief after work, and leads to their happiness. Stem cell therapy and Regenerative Medicine treatments are not just a passing fancy in sports. They are deep rooted in the pathophysiology of joint injury, joint degeneration and ultimately the ability to foster repair mechanisms. Healing without the use of surgery may be just the answer the athlete is looking for.
