Are you thinking about undergoing a stem cell treatment? In the last part of our two-part series, we describe a few other things you should know:
"Some of the world's most gifted and highest paying athletes have turned to stem cell therapy."
1. Stem cell therapy is trusted by athletes
If you're on the edge about whether or not you should undergo stem cell therapy, don't be! Some of the world's most gifted and highest-paid athletes have turned to stem cell therapy to treat serious conditions or injuries.
One NFL star, Chris Johnson, underwent stem cell therapy in 2014 to treat his injured knee, according to Monday Morning QB. Famed sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews performed the operation. Charles' reason to turn to stem cell therapy was simple:
"When I tore my meniscus and played the season out, through the wear and tear, I lost a lot of cartilage," said Johnson. "When you put the stem cells in, it might be able to help rebuild that cartilage in your knee. Hopefully, it makes your knee better for even more years."
Unlike normal surgery, stem cell therapy is a relatively non-invasive procedure.
2. How powerful are stem cells?
In the first part of our series, we described a few conditions that stem cells can treat. But we felt it necessary to touch on this subject one more time. Leonard Grossman, a plastic surgeon in Brooklyn, New York, spoke to Real Clear Life and had this to stay about how stem cells can help someone who suffered from total heart failure.
"I can take a person who has no muscle in their biceps or triceps and use stem cells to give them muscle," said Grossman. "You can take a person who had a total heart failure, you can use stem cells to grow new heart muscle, and after this they can be a marathon runner."
Stem cells are powerful, natural healers.
