These athletes are maintaining their “A” game with stem cells

Sep 16, 2019

Stem cell therapy is quickly becoming a popular option among professional athletes with chronic pain. To date there are 5 athletes, highly regarded in their respective sport, that have undergone stem cell treatment to great effect.

Recently, Los Angeles baseball pitcher Garrett Richard received stem cells to treat his elbow and to keep the condition from progressing to a point where he needs a Tommy John surgery.

A typical stem cell treatment involves the injection of healthy stem cells within the injured area, thereby allowing for regeneration of damaged tissues and cells. It’s non-invasive and has an added benefit of avoiding long periods of recovery.

Here are the 5 famous athletes who underwent stem cell treatment:

Kobe Bryant

In 2013, it was said that the Los Angeles Lakers All-Star went to Germany to have his knee treated with stem cells. Kobe suffers from knee degeneration and has had improvements with the innovative therapy in the past.

C.J. Nitkowski

MLB pitcher CJ Nitkowski suffered an injury to his left shoulder and decided he had nothing to lose by receiving a stem cell treatment in 2011. Previously, traditional therapies have kept him from having to make an exit in the big league. A surgical procedure was out of the question, since long rehabilitation times would have destroyed his career. The stem cells allowed CJ to improve and landed him a huge contract in 2012 with the New York Mets.

Bartolo Colon

MLB right-hand pitcher Bartolo Colon has had success in the league until an injury forced him into the sidelines. In 2010, Bartolo decided to go with a stem cell therapy treatment in order to get back to his career. The doctor who treated Bartolo saw the injury and thought the player would never be able to throw a baseball again.

As detailed by the New York Times in 2011, the stem cell procedure was such that bone marrow was collected, then centrifuged to separate the stem cells from other materials. Afterwards, the cells were injected within Bartolo’s shoulder and elbows to begin repairs to the rotator cuff and ligaments.

Rafael Nadal

Nadal, or otherwise known as ‘El Pais’ within the sport of tennis, has had knee problems over the course of his professional career. After exhausting possible treatment options with little to no results, Nadal turned to stem cells, and having achieved great results underwent the same therapy to treat his Facetary Syndrome, which is an inflammatory condition that affects the lumbar vertebrae.

Cristiano Ronaldo

In 2016, The Sun detailed that the Real Madrid forward had received stem cell treatment for his injured knees.

It was said that the 34 yr old athlete had suffered a knee injury during a match. Initially, the team said it was a cramp, but the subsequent CT scan showed a rupture. Ronaldo agreed to the same stem cell treatment that famous athlete Rafael Nadal underwent in 2014. Afterwards, the star footballer mentioned that the pain in his knee disappeared, something that the player hadn’t experienced in his two years of traditional therapy.

    Well, I’m not famous, but have been an athlete all my life. After a crash on my bycicle which tore the cartilage in my hip, I was down to bone on bone.
    I had stem cell regeneration. I now have between 2 and 4mls of new cartilage. It is not perfect but I’m back to tennis, cycling, power walking, teaching Pilates. I am 67 by the way. So I’m glad I had it, much better than a new hip. All mine.

    It’s wonder but the average person cannot afford the cost of stem cells I was told it would cost $4,000 per
    Knee to do stem cell and it will last only 2 years.
    Athletes can afford the cost.

    How about the hip, I have never read anywhere about hip stem cell recipients. Nor any discussion why hip stem cell replacement may or not be successfully treated.

    Hip issues are just as relevant as all the other posting, but you ignore addressing the hip issue throughout your research and presentations.

    Why?

    Whether the treatment for an injury or a disease is a “mindful” journey or a science-based treatment like stem cell injections, there remains the one common denominator of patients. Most, a vast majority, are WEALTHY, RICH, or ROLLING IN THE DOUGH. Where does one start when you are living on the borderline of lower middle class and poverty?
