Stem Cell Treatments Offer Patients a Nonsurgical Means of Joint Pain Relief
Stem cell treatments offer many patients a minimally invasive, nonsurgical means of relief from degenerative joint conditions and sports injuries. If you are struggling with reduced mobility and quality of life because of osteoarthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, a tendon tear, or degenerative disc disease, and you would like to learn more about your options for regenerative medicine and joint replacement alternatives, turn to Dennis M. Lox, MD, at Florida Spine & Sports Medicine Center.
Dr. Lox specializes in stem cell treatments and other forms of regenerative therapy, which provide patients with additional choices for the treatment of their joint conditions. All too often, people rush into a major surgery without exploring all of the nonsurgical options available to them. Stem cell therapy is an innovative, progressive treatment aimed at healing and repairing damaged tissues from within.
If you are unfamiliar with stem cell therapy and its benefits, here are a few things you should know:
- Dr. Lox uses autologous transplantation to perform stem cell treatments, through which cells are taken from the patient’s own body and injected into the damaged joint or tissue.
- Dr. Lox never uses embryonic stem cells.
- The entire procedure can be performed in the comfort of Dr. Lox’s office.
- Many patients experience improvement in their symptoms in as little as one week, though individual results may vary.
Stem cell therapy may be an effective treatment for patients suffering from herniated discs, bulging discs, rotator cuff tears, labral tears, meniscal tears, impingement syndrome, and other musculoskeletal conditions.
