A Retired Marathon Runner has repeat Knee Stem Cells
A former collegiate sprinter and multiple race marathon runner in his mid 60’s now, consulted Dr. Lox again. He first consulted Dr. Lox around 10 years ago, when he was still running marathons. He had developed knee pain, which prevented him from running beyond 5k without pain. He had 2 stem cell therapy treatments. He eventually retired from running marathons due to the repetitive stress on his already degenerative arthritic knees.
Running Marathons and The Effects on Your Knees
He was also a weightlifter and in multiple other sports. Now 10 years later, he consulted Dr. Lox again. This time the goal was to prevent him from having walking problems when he traveled for leisure, and stay active walking, and physically fit into the next several decades. A different approach, but not unknown to Dr. Lox.
