Chronic Knee Pain Still Gone 4 years after Knee Stem Cell Treatment
A patient presented to Dennis M. Lox, MD, an expert in knee stem cell treatment, with progressive knee pain. The patient opted for stem cell treatment and followed up with Dr. Lox 4 years later. The patient stated his knee stem cell therapy was an overwhelming success.
Before the Knee Stem Cell Treatment
Prior to treatment, the patient’s condition had deteriorated to the point knee osteoarthritis had significantly damaged his knee joint. The patient was told a knee joint replacement would be in the future. Therefore at that time, his sights for improvement were focused on pain and walking, not return to advanced sports participation. After his knee stem cell treatment, Dr. Lox guided him with specific recommendations for his lifestyle and personal goals. 6 months post-treatment, the patient returned to running and skiing.
Both running and skiing require knee agility and subject the knee to great stress. Stressing a bad knee that has undergone knee stem cell therapy is like balancing a tightrope. A skill set best guided by an experienced stem cell expert who has seen all sizes, shapes, ages, severity, and sports to which these variables will apply to the regeneration and rehabilitation of a bad knee joint.
Treating knee joint arthritis
Alternative strategies such as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy are alternative strategies for knee joint arthritis. Dr. Lox notes that Regenerative treatments focus on healing and repair at the cellular level where joint breakdown and inflammation begin. There are many factors which facilitate joint breakdown as well as factors enhancing joint repair.
