Rugby Knee Injury: South African Consults Dr Dennis Lox Regarding Pain
Dr. Lox is consulted by patients and physicians internationally. A recent consultation from South African rugby player regarding treating his knee with stem cells was very informative.
He had sustained a knee meniscal tear playing rugby. Regarding the rugby injury, his only question was whether stem cell treatment was a 100% guarantee. Dr. Lox responded that in life there are no guarantees, but the results of the treatment would probably be no worse than invasive surgery.
That sold the rugby player on trying the stem cell therapy. After hearing Dr. Lox had undergone the same procedure to protect his knees, it was an easy decision. Meniscal tears will continue to degenerate after surgery – perpetuating the arthritis cascade. It is important to treat conditions like a rugby knee injury (or any kind of sports or work related injury) early and avoid secondary complications.
