Good question. Yet most injured athletes end up seeing a surgeon.
Like Nate, who 10 years earlier had injured his right hip in a dirt bike fall. His pain and disability had worsened to the point that 2 years ago he began seeing orthopedic surgeons. After physiotherapy and acupuncture had failed, all three surgeons had written orders for hip replacement. Now, 8-months after 2 Stem Cell treatments, he has regained 80% of his normal, pain-free function. And he still has his original equipment hip.
