Athletes Who Choose Stem Cells To Heal
Why are athletes and many others choosing stem cells as an alternative to Surgery?
Simple. Regenerative Medicine has the capacity to speed recovery times from injury, prevent further joint trauma and thus theoretically prevent degenerative arthritis. Preventing degenerative arthritis may prolong an athletes career or extend the recreational athlete into competing for many more years. Dennis M. Lox, MD,, a Sports and Regenerative Specialist, has treated many athletes and has extensive experience in keeping athletes competing – even at advancing ages – on the senior tour of many sports. Dr. Lox feels that utilizing Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy as regenerative procedures makes complete sense for the athlete and/or sportsman who wishes to take advantage of current cutting edge sports medicine applications and apply it towards healing their bodies from a nonsurgical standpoint.
