The Affect of Running after Stem Cell Therapy
Often runners wear their knees from a lifetime of sports, injuries or a combination of factors including genetics. Bad knees and hips are not a runners friend. Stem cells may be of benefit for knee and hip pain, however, each patient should discuss their condition with Dr. Lox before and after stem cell treatment. Return to sport is an individual specific decision that should be made with the athlete and doctor to achieve the best possible outcome. Sometimes the goals of the patient and what is best for their knee or hip collide. Working through these barriers is best done with frank discussions regarding the patient’s condition, their treatment, and their goals. Running imparts stress onto the joint. If the joint is worn the more stress to the joint the more zolpidemsleep.com wear and tear. Stem cells may repair the joint, however, constant continual wear may exceed the capacity of the joint to keep up with the repair and breakdown or degeneration exceeds the reparative process. This dynamic interplay is best understood with continual Followup with the doctor. Dr. Lox aims at keeping Followup for a prolonged period whether by phone or email to stay abreast of any changes in condition.
Many athletes have returned to running sports after stem cell therapy for knee and hip pain. By establishing clear treatment guidelines and goals it is easy to measure success.
