How Regenerative Medicine is Used To Treat Sports Injuries

If you have a sports injury that hasn’t healed from physical therapy or rest, regenerative medicine could be an option for you. Regenerative medicine treatments use functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function loss due to age or damage. For sports injuries specifically, the goal is to reduce pain and improve function. Treatments include stem cell therapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP), prolotherapy, certain cartilage regeneration procedures and more.

New Study Finds Potential in Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

A study published in Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine found that induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) could potentially be used to treat chronic and degenerative diseases. This means the possibilities of improving the quality of life for seniors with diseases such as heart disease, kidney failure and even Alzheimer’s disease. Before, stem cells are usually came from two sources: embryos or adult tissues. The discovery of iPSCs, which can come directly from the patient, opens a new door for stem cell therapy research.
