Ex-Football Player has Knee Stem Cells
A 400-pound ex-collegiate football player consulted Dr. Lox for Knee stem cells. His goal was knee pain relief. He was initially interested in weight loss, and the effect on pressure on his knees. After many questions, he decided on a combined Regenerative Medicine approach, along with a comprehensive exercise and weight loss program. Dennis M. Lox M.D. treats athletes, and non-athletes alike with knee stem cells who desire knee pain relief, and a better quality of life. There are many factors to consider when treating patients. An individualized approach tailored to the patient’s specific needs allows the best results.
Football, Weight Gain, and Knee Stem Cells
Football is a brutal sport. The knee is often injured from ligament sprains, ACL tears, meniscal tears, to broken bones. Knee stem cells have been used by some of the most respected sports medicine doctors in the country, offer knee stem cells as part of their Regenerative Medicine approach. Knee stem cells are used to try and assist the body to heal itself. Stem cells are repair cells. By using the patients own stem cells from an area where they are in abundance, and delivering them to an area in need, such as the knee, knee pain relief may occur.
Weight gain after a football players career is over, can be a problem. This patient had gained nearly 175 pounds since his playing days in college. His current weight of 400 pounds, puts a lot of extra force on the knee, thus accelerating wear and knee pain. A goal of an expert such as Dr. Lox is to address all concerns that may be affecting the knee joint, resulting in knee pain. Then arrive at a plan to achieve knee pain relief. Many other factors are explored in an in-depth consultation with Dr. Lox. The goal is to examine all factors contributing to knee pain, and address these factors, and achieve knee pain relief. After a complete evaluation, the patient is determined if knee stem cells are an appropriate option. There is always room for questions on both sides, and there should be. This is not the same treatment for every patient. It must be custom tailored for each patient to arrive at the decision for knee stem cell treatment, and how it will be done and why.
Knee Arthritis and Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Pain Relief
Knee arthritis occurs from age, weight gain, prior trauma, prior surgery to the knee, and many other factors. When knee arthritis is present in knee pain, stiffness, knee swelling, clicking, locking and giveaway may all occur, or hardly at all. If Dr. Lox deems Regenerative Medicine is a reasonable course of action, knee stem cell therapy may occur by a simple knee Stem Cell Injection. This is a simple procedure done in the office. There are no crutches, no general anesthesia, and no pain pills. It’s simple.
