NFL players receiving stem cell treatments to potentially speed recovery back to the field for knee meniscus injury.
Much like Hines Ward nearly 10 years ago receiving a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) blood spinning injection, to speed healing from a knee MCL injury to play in the super bowl; players & their medical teams are turning to more powerful natural options like bone marrow stem cell therapy. Depending on the nature of injury surgery may be required but it is the hope that by adding stem cells in the operation, athletes may recover better and faster. More studies are needed but often times elite athletes pave the way for medical advancements as their profession drives the speed of science to meet their physical demands. According to ESPN, Atlanta Falcons Defensive Lineman Adrian Clayborn will be ready to play sooner than the team originally expected in part because of stem-cell treatment following meniscus surgery.
