More and more athletes are turning to stem cell treatments, because the pressure to get back on the field is high and access to these experimental therapies is continuing to increase. Athletes commonly suffer serious injuries that could potentially end their careers and cause them serious long-term health complications. Most of them turn to surgery to resolve those injuries.
However, some of them are pursuing stem cell treatments and regenerative therapies, because these procedures are less invasive than surgery and have the potential to speed and augment repair. While the effectiveness of these surgeries is largely unknown, what is clear is that a growing number of athletes are turning to this approach.
Athletes Who Have Undergone Stem Cell Treatments
This article outlines 40 pro athletes who have undergone stem cell treatments for their knees, hips, ankles, shoulders, and more. It also includes athletes who have pursued regenerative therapies, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.
In my case as a professional athlete, I received both of these therapies within a short time frame with each other, because there is evidence to indicate that PRP injections can positively impact stem cell treatment outcomes.
