Stem cell treatments have been known to yield positive results for both famous athletes and the general population alike. To cite a few famous examples, Cristiano Ronaldo used stem cell therapy to be able to treat his knees and keep playing soccer. Kobe Bryant and Rafael Nadal also used the treatment for their knees; Nadal returned for a treatment for his back, too. Jack Nicklaus mentions stem cell therapy for back pain as the solution that allowed him to return to golf.
Below are a few patient success stories from stem cell procedures administered at our offices in Denver and Vail, Colorado.
“After struggling with an Achilles injury for 1 1/2 years and trying everything to heal it – steroid, physical therapy, wearing a boot, no activity, stretching, etc – I decided to have stem cell therapy at ThriveMD. It was a short procedure and an afternoon of post op recovery, which after 6-8 weeks, resulted in a full recovery from my injury. This seemed to finally stimulate blood flow and healing to an injury I had resigned myself to having forever. I highly recommend this procedure for tendon injuries like this one.”*
