How Peyton Manning And Kobe Bryant Overcame Joint Pain

What do Peyton Manning and Kobe Bryant have in common? You can probably answer this pretty easily. They’ve both led their respective teams to the championship multiple times. They’ve been MVPs of their leagues. They are both known and admired for their remarkable longevity. And they both retired this year.

They clearly have a lot in common, but there’s one thing you might not have thought about. They both got stem cell therapy to heal their injuries and let them continue to play. Neither wanted to end their careers, so they tried something new.

A Novel and Approach with Clear Benefits

With stem cell treatment or cellular therapy, stem cells or pluripotent cells from fat tissue or amniotic tissue are placed into the painful or injured area. They can then grow to help restore function and reduce inflammation and pain.

Stem cell and cellular therapy treatment can actually help to heal the area that’s giving you trouble. In contrast, pain medications just mask pain, and anti-inflammatories like steroids tend to very temporarily provide relief. Surgery often removes damaged tissue without building up the structure to the way it used to be.

Another benefit is that it’s minimally invasive when you opt for stem cell treatment. That’s clearly an important advantage to pro athletes like Bryant and Manning, who depend on their bodies functioning perfectly to be able to keep winning. It’s also an advantage to you if you don’t want to take time off to recover from surgery.

The Clear Choice of the Future

Bryant went to Germany for treatment because the procedure is well established there. It’s available in much of Europe and in some Latin American countries. The U.S. is behind some other countries, but is making progress.There is a growing amount of scientific research into its benefits. A growing segment of the medical community is starting to consider the potential value of stem cell treatment for conditions such as osteoporosis, spinal fusion pain, and pain in the knees and other joints.

Not Just a Procedure for Athletes

Luckily, you don’t have to be a pro athlete to get stem cell or cellular therapy treatment. You don’t even need to travel to Europe or Mexico to get stem cell treatment. It’s already available in the U.S., and possibly at a clinic closer than you think, and it may be faster than you expect. In fact, patients have been able to reduce or eliminate pain and begin healing in a single treatment.
