Competitive Bodybuilder Turns to Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Pain
Tampa, Saint Petersburg and Clearwater, FL
Years of squatting with heavy weights and competitive bodybuilding competitions had taken their toll on one patient’s knees. He was told his knee was so badly damaged that he needed a complete knee replacement if he wanted to address his knee pain.
Competitive athletes don’t give up easily – and certainly don’t op for surgery if there is a better alternative available to them.
He was told by a friend (another competitive athlete) about Dennis M. Lox, MD, a Sports and Regenerative Medicine Specialist in Florida, who had treated his bad knee with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy.
Not one to back away from a potential solution that didn’t involve surgery, the bodybuilder chose to undergo PRP and Stem Cell Therapy for knee pain and to get back in shape and improve his quality of life.
Many competitive athletes, weekend warriors and those battling the effects of wear and tear arthritis are seeing PRP and Stem Cell Therapy for knee pain as a viable chose rather than turning to knee replacement.
