Many Sports Injuries & Musculoskeletal Conditions Can Be Treated With Regenerative Medicine
Advanced regenerative treatments can potentially reduce pain and inflammation, and also promote the healing and repair of damaged tissues, such as muscles, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. As a highly acclaimed pioneer of regenerative medicine, Dennis M. Lox, M.D., has been helping his patients find relief from pain and recover from musculoskeletal conditions and injuries – without surgery – since 1990.
Regenerative medicine can be particularly beneficial for active individuals who are sidelined by a painful condition. In general, athletes of all levels – from ultramarathon runners to casual golfers – have two main objectives when recovering from an injury: to return to their sport quickly, and to retain their pre-injury level of ability. By capitalizing on the body’s own repair processes and stimulating natural healing, regenerative treatments can potentially accomplish both goals – without the risks and downtime typically associated with a surgical procedure.
What conditions can be treated with regenerative medicine?
As an alternative to cortisone injections and surgery, Dr. Lox offers regenerative treatments to address arthritis, chronic joint pain, tendonitis, bursitis, and many other musculoskeletal issues, including:
- Ankle conditions – Achilles tendonitis, instability, sprains, and tarsal tunnel syndrome

- Foot conditions – Bunions, fractures, and plantar fasciitis
- Hand, finger, and thumb conditions – Basal joint arthritis, fractures, and trigger finger
- Hip conditions – Labral tears, ligament injuries, and piriformis syndrome
- Knee conditions – Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, Baker’s cysts, chondromalacia, instability, lateral collateral ligament (LCL) tears, medial collateral ligament (MCL) tears, meniscal tears, patellofemoral syndrome, posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tears, and runner’s knee
- Shoulder conditions – Acromioclavicular (AC) joint separation, dislocations, frozen shoulder, instability, labral tears, rotator cuff tears, and superior labrum anterior and posterior (SLAP) tears
- Spine conditions – Bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, degenerative joint disease, facet joint syndrome, herniated discs, radiculopathy, and sacroiliac joint (SI) syndrome
- Wrist conditions – Carpal tunnel syndrome, fractures, and instability
