Abstract

Background: The aim of the research is to identify, study the effects of stem cell therapies on sports injuries and examine how stem cell therapies may benefit the healing process and improve the athletes' physical state. With an extensive literature review, the purpose of this article to investigate the true potentials of regenerative stem cell therapy and shed light on innovative ways of treatment for sports injuries. It is theorized that stem cell therapy is an efficient and effective treatment method for sports injuries. Stem cell therapy is an innovative way of treating musculoskeletal injuries to provide faster and safer treatment to athletes. As sports injuries are one of the major concerns of the athletes, stem cell therapies are quite promising with effective and safe results. It is possible to fully heal certain injuries, regain functions, and reduce symptoms. Stem cell therapy is a method that should be popularised and preferred particularly by athletes.
