Stem Cells and Injuries


#1

Paul have you heard of any athletes using to stem cells to recover from minor injuries that change the shape of the muscle? Or perhaps even a more significant one like your pec tear? Have those injuries allowed the muscle to return to its previous shape after the injury?


#2

Change in shape could be swelling. Have you consider PRP, very effective in soft tissues injuries.


#3

These are real injuries, some are older, the shape isn’t coming back on its own.


#4

Actually I have. I know one guy with a serious knee injury that did stem cell injection to no avail. I think we’re still super early in understanding how we can use stem cells to promote healing and recovery.
