And while not every Regenexx patient will ever be able to be an IronMan Triathlete, Joe’s experience enabled him to get back to training and competition. That said, I hope this Regenexx Max Sports and Fitness article inspires some to take back their life without the risks and complications of unnecessary surgery.
“PUSH THE ENVELOPE (Cutting-Edge Technology)
Use your own stem cells. One of the most exciting recommendations comes from Dr. Christopher Centeno. He uses stem cells extracted from his patients’ own fat tissue or bone marrow and then injects the stem cells into the damaged body parts. Centeno helps people avoid surgery and drugs and bounce back with almost no recovery time at his clinic. Take the case of Joseph Maroon, 63, who was facing the end of competing in triathlons and a total knee replacement. After Centano’s treatments, Joseph was back racing the Ironman within six months and still races today – 7 years later. Using your own stem cells to treat chronic pain is the wave of the future and will hopefully end America’s need for pain medications. For more information, visit www.regenexx.com. MS&F”
