Athlete with Shoulder Pain Responds to Stem Cell Therapy
A retired athlete who previously had shoulder surgery was continuing to have shoulder pain long after the procedure was performed. Faced with the prospect of complete shoulder joint replacement, he chose to have Stem Cell Therapy. He found Dennis M. Lox, MD,, a Sports and Regenerative Medicine Specialist, from a friend who previously treated with Dr. Lox. Many athletes, weekend warriors and those with worn-out joints are seeking alternatives to surgery with regenerative medicine therapies such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy.
This particular patient was very satisfied with his treatment, and is not going to have a total shoulder joint replacement.
