AJC: Julio Jones Received Experimental Stem Cell Procedure On Ankle – The Falcoholic

A slightly tongue-in-cheek report about autologous stem cell therapy for an athlete:

Only three years ago Peyton Manning underwent stem cell therapy, a procedure so successful his neck is now strong enough to hold up a crippling Super Bowl loss. According to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones received a similar, experimental procedure.

(Here’s a free site with that info on Jones – BBN edit.)

These therapies really are experimental at this point. However, veterinarians have been treating animals with their own stem cells for years.

The bone marrow cells for a bone injury seem less extreme than using fat stem cells that may not be functionally identified by the researchers.

I’m watching and have high hopes for the future, though!
