Running Injuries

Dr. Lox | www.drlox.com | Call 844-440-8503

It is rewarding to return an athlete to their sport. Knee ailments derail many athletes, so when they turn to Stem Cell Therapy with Dr. Dennis Lox, he is strict on getting them to follow his advice to improve their chances of a successful outcome. Imagine this: two marathon runners in the office the same day to have their knees done. Obviously, they strike up a conversation and when they realize they are both marathon runners, they start comparing times and races. Both do well with their procedures. One flew in from New York the other drove from another Florida metropolitan area. The first who flew in from New York already had a phone followup consultation, and was doing great 2 months out biking up to 60 miles, but no running was allowed. The second was seen in the office for follow-up and he too was doing great after his stem cell treatment. He inquired about his waiting room friend (the competitive spirit). He too was biking, in the gym, and swimming.

Returning to marathon running places great stress on a degenerative knee joint. Dr. Dennis Lox is adamant about physical conditioning, yet not allowing over mechanical stimulation of the knee joint too soon after stem cell therapy. Too much mechanical stimulation will stimulate overproduction of IL-6 and Nitric Oxide which may degrade the extracellular matrix (the support system to cartilage cells), this will be contrary to the goal of rebuilding or repair of cartilage. Just one of the many variables Dr. Lox must juggle with athletes, but in the end it is well worth it.
