Jarvis Green started playing football in 7th grade but didn’t love it until 10th grade. He went on to win two back-to-back Super Bowl championships with the New England Patriots in 2004 and 2005.
But the sport took a toll on his knee. Following knee surgery, his pain never fully went away and he was unable to walk up or down the stairs.
Following his move to Denver, he realized he needed a nonsurgical solution to his knee pain that would allow him to keep playing football. So in the summer of 2010, he received the proprietary procedure known as Regenexx-SD, which uses bone marrow concentrate that contains Jarvis’s own stem cells.
“Three days later, all my pain went away, my inflammation went away, my range of motion went back to 100 percent,” he says. “In three weeks, I was riding a bike in the hills of Vail.”
