Pennsylvanian Trainer with a Torn Shoulder Labrum Has Successful Stem Cell Treatment with Dr. Lox
The personal trainer was an avid weightlifter who had to stop a significant portion of his upper body exercises with weights due to shoulder pain. An orthopedic surgeon recommended arthroscopic shoulder surgery to repair the torn glenoid labrum. He personally knew Dennis M. Lox, MD, for many years. He was also the owner of a successful personal training business, as well as a competitive weightlifter. Instead of shoulder surgery, he opted to fly to Florida and have stem cell therapy for his shoulder with Dr. Lox in his Tampa Bay, Florida office. A year and a half post shoulder stem cell therapy for a torn glenoid labrum the radiologist confirms a normal MRI.
What Is To Come After The Stem Cell Treatment?
This patient had excellent progress after returning to Pennsylvania. His orthopedic surgeon stated that with or without surgery, he would not be able to do push-ups again as he tore his glenoid labrum due to shoulder pain. With the help of Dr. Lox, he began using light resistance exercises, rubber tubing exercises, flexibility training, and ultimately returning to weights.
Stem Cell Therapy Resolves a Glenoid Labrum Tear
When he returned to doing pain-free push-ups, he was elated. He had a client he trained who was a Neurosurgeon. He relayed this information to the Neurosurgeon who was likewise impressed. The Neurosurgeon wrote a prescription for a new shoulder MRI to see if changes had occurred after the stem cell treatment. They were both surprised by the radiologist’s report of a normal shoulder MRI.
A year and a half later the trainer and Dr. Lox spoke on the phone. He remains without shoulder pain and continues to do push-ups. Dennis M. Lox, MD, is currently accepting new patients. He treats patients internationally in both his Clearwater, Florida and Beverly Hills, California offices.
