Orthopedics And Sports Injuries

The incidence of sports-related injuries is increasing, and such injuries can have severe consequences, potentially ending an athlete’s career. Therefore, it is crucial to provide prompt and effective treatment for these injuries. In recent years, cell-based therapy has gained popularity as a potential new approach for treating sports injuries that do not respond well to conventional therapies.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are frequently used in the treatment of sports injuries due to their safety and low risk of rejection by the recipient’s body. MSCs secrete paracrine factors that help modulate the host immune response, promote the formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis), enhance cell migration and survival, and prevent the formation of scar tissue (fibrosis). These properties make MSCs an attractive therapeutic option for various sports injuries involving muscles, ligaments, tendons, bones, cartilage, and nervous tissues.

The safety and effectiveness of MSC therapy in treating sports injuries have been demonstrated in numerous preclinical and clinical studies. These findings provide evidence for the potential of MSC-based treatments in improving outcomes for athletes with sports-related injuries.
