What Causes Wrist Arthritis?

Derrick Brooks began experiencing more frequent wrist complaints after his professional football playing days were over. Attributing it to his aggressive tackling style. Accumulative stress especially in an extreme impact sport such as football, no doubt can lead to early or an accelerated wear and tear of the joints. This accumulative wear over time can result in early degenerative arthritis manifestations of any joint including the wrist.

After hearing another Professional Football player, former Tampa Bay Buccaneer teammate Ian Beckles discuss Dr. Lox, Derrick began more inquiries, and after fully vetting Dr. Lox he consulted Lox for his wrists. Then after checking with his personal orthopedic surgeon, Derrick green-lighted moving forward with wrist stem cells.
