Famous Sportsmen who benefitted from Stem Cell Treatment
Regenerative medicine, especially stem cell therapy, has been becoming increasingly popular among professional athletes. Stem cell treatments help in repairing and regenerating damaged cells and tissues naturally. This is why stem cell treatments are showing great promise as an efficient alternative to surgery. In addition, these treatments help athletes get back into the game faster than other treatments.
Here are 6 athletes who have benefited from stem cell treatments.
Juventus striker, 5-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo prefers stem cell therapy. In 2016, Ronaldo suffered a hamstring injury but stem cell treatment allowed him to return to action in less than 3 weeks. In the final of Euro 2016, Ronaldo tore a knee ligament but returned to Real Madrid training only a month after his injury, thanks again to stem cell therapy.
Two-time Wimbledon champion, Rafael Nadal has also used stem cell treatment. In 2013, Nadal was forced out of action for 7 months due to a knee problem. But he underwent stem cell therapy and has won 6 Grand Slam titles in the past few years. Nadal also used stem cell treatment to cure a persistent back problem (the facet syndrome or inflammation of a part of the lumbar vertebrae) and he hasn't complained about his back ever since.
Los Angeles Lakers basketball player Kobe Bryant went to Germany for stem cell treatment on his knee. Bryant suffered from knee degeneration and experienced success with treatments, before his tragic demise this year.
Bartolo Colon, the right-handed baseball pitcher, suffered ligament damage and rotator cuff tear. He thought that he would never throw again but as he underwent stem cell procedure, doctors were able to repair the damaged tissue.

In 2011, baseball pitcher C.J. Nitkowski tried a stem celltreatment for his left shoulder. To stay in the big leagues and avoids a surgical intervention and long rehabilitation, Colon tried stem cell therapy for his shoulder and even signed with the New York Mets the following year.
