Stem cell therapy in the field of orthopedics has been in the news a lot lately, with several high profile athletes – including Peyton Manning and Rafael Nadal – seeking the treatment out to boost their recoveries.

Mesenchymal stem cell therapy is now being offered by The San Antonio Orthopaedic Group. According to Dr. Balldin, “We are starting to apply it in a multitude of areas, including sports injuries, whether it be into actual joints, or to allow for a quicker recovery of ligament sprains and also for low back pain.” He says that stem cell therapy also can be “useful in recovery from common sports injuries, including rotator cuff injuries and tennis elbow.”
