Duncan Duo ~ May 6th, 2016

So last night I played basketball for the first time in like 5 months. A few months before that I started having major troubles with my knees (my right knee I’ve had 2 ACL reconstructions – last was 8-9 years ago) because years of playing hoops more or less destroyed them and the cartilage… I more or less didn’t have any cartilage left. A couple of orthos and a primary doctor more or less shrugged and said I could do hyaluronic acid injections/cortisone shots but that ‘arthritis’ was incurable and said that to eliminate the pain they’d consider total knee replacement. After listening to Ron Diaz and Ian Beckles talk on 620 WDAE for years about Dr. Lox in Clearwater, I met him and gave stem cell therapy and PRP a shot to rejuvenate my knees a couple months back. I’m not normally one to praise a business on my personal page but I have zero pain today after playing last night and my knees feel better than they have in years. I can’t believe how great I feel physically. I’m honestly amazed at the progress and pain relief, and full mobility recovery. I don’t get anything for posting this, but if you’ve considered it – I consider it the new miracle cure. I missed playing ball with my guys at the South Tampa Family YMCA so I’m glad to be on the road to recovery. I kept my weight down too so now I just have to get back into cardio shape so that I can keep hanging with the teenagers and twenty somethings 🙂

Stem cells and PRP are the reason I am able to run today. I wish that I knew about this before I had Arthriscopic surgery on my knee. I may never run another marathon again, but at 68, if I’m able to run for an hour or more every day, I’m happy. Before this treatment, I couldn’t run for 20 seconds. It’s a whole lot better than a total knee, which is what I was looking at, and a whole lot less invasive.

“I haven’t felt this good in 10 years,” Brenda G. told Dr. Dennis Lox at an August 2010 office visit.

Brenda has suffered since 1978 with chronic cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacral pain, and has been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, degenerative arthritis, as well as fibromyalgia and lupus. Medication therapy has been the primary therapy for her pain relief – up until meeting Dr. Lox in early May 2010.

After learning Brenda’s history, Dr. Lox conducted several diagnostic tests and recommended platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections in her sacroiliac.

Brenda received the procedure in late May 2010.

Brenda has been extremely pleased with the results of the PRP injections. “I haven’t felt this good in 10 years,” she said. Because of the pain she has endured, Brenda also told Dr. Lox, “It feels like I’ve wasted the best years of my life.”
