285 Pound ex-Collegiate Weightlifter Has Knee Stem Cell Therapy For Knee Pain Arthritis
This ex-athlete went from a solid muscular 200-pound athlete to a 285 pound,53 years old professional. Not everyone has to be an athlete or former athlete to get better with knee stem cell therapy.
Losing weight is not just easier on the knee, it also lowers risk for a variety of diseases. Patients with high blood pressure or diabetes often reduce or eliminate their medications after weight loss. It is estimated for every extra 10 pounds of body weight there is an additional 30-50 pound more force on the knee.
Knee Pain Arthritis Symptoms
- Creaking or cracking
- Loss of knee range of motion
- Walking pain
- Pain going up or down stairs
- Pain after sports
Alternatives to Knee Replacement
Patients often seek consultation with Dennis M. Lox M.D. because they don’t want knee replacement surgery. Some who are told they need a knee replacement, clearly don’t at the point they seek consultation with Dr. Lox. Arthritis medications and cortisone injections may temporarily alleviate knee pain, or not at all.
Both arthritis medications and cortisone injections do not alter the progression of knee arthritis, meaning it gets worse with time. So, treating early with Regenerative Medicine makes sense. Help the body heal itself, so you avoid knee replacement. The earlier the better. However, patients often say I just recently heard about knee stem cell therapy or stem cell treatments. If only I had known earlier. Sometimes you get what you get, and that is what you have to treat and make the best of.
Even Professional Athletes have Turned to Stem Cell Therapy
Many famous professional athletes have turned to stem cell therapy. Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods, Peyton Manning, Rafael Nadal, Derrick Brooks, and a long list of others. You don’t have to be a famous athlete to pursue researching Regenerative Medicine and stem cell therapy. Yet, a question should be asked.
Why would some of the worlds most elite athletes turn to Regenerative Medicine and stem cell therapy if it might hurt them? Would they jeopardize their career on a risky injection? The truth is no. It has been shown in clinical trials on human knees to be safe. So you can have a knee stem cell injection and it will work or it will not work, but you can’t rewind knee surgery. If knee surgery makes it worse, there is no going back.
