Learn how orthopedic and sports-related injuries can be treated with stem cells. 


Alternative treatments before surgery that may help avoid it

Whether you are a professional athlete, weekend warrior, or you simply enjoy staying active and fit, the last thing you want is to be sidelined by an injury.

“No pain, no gain” is something we all have heard since high school gym class. But when does the pain become too much?


An injury can cause you pain, limit your movement and the recovery period can be long and frustrating. Moreover, to try to fix the problem, many doctors and pain management specialists recommend surgery, inactivity, or longtime use of pain medications. Sadly, even with these approaches, conditions can become worse over time, and long-term use of certain medications can become problematic itself.

When typical treatment options include facing the scalpel, taking medication, or remaining inactive, it’s no wonder athletes are loving the speed and efficacy of stem cell therapy.

Stem cell therapy regenerates new healthy tissue to aid healing. These treatments have reduced the need for prescription medication and surgery and are proving to be a helpful tool for athletes trying to manage or eliminate pain.

Athletes have used stem cell therapies as a viable treatment option for treating or aiding recovery from many conditions and common sports injuries, including:

  • back, neck and sciatica pain
  • tendonitis
  • torn meniscus
  • sprains and strains
  • broken bones
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • rotator cuff tears

By repairing damaged tissues, stem cells also help curb the pain and inflammation associated with these conditions.

Medications may help with inflammation and pain, but unfortunately, they are only temporarily. That’s why many athletes are looking to stem cells as a more effective and long-term solution over medication.

There are many types of sports injuries. Sports injuries can involve almost any area of the body.

We can group most sports injuries into five categories:

  • Bone injuries: including brakes or fracture and “bruising”
  • Soft tissue injuries: including muscle, ligaments, tendons, cartilage and skin scrapes and bruises
  • Joint injuries: including dislocations, separations and post-injury arthritis
  • Head injuries: primarily concussions
  • Overuse injuries: usually involve soft tissue or joints but caused by repetitive activities



Osteoarthritis is a condition affecting millions of people worldwide and is the most common form of degenerative joint disease.

For many people Osteoarthritis in inevitable, it is a result of over the years of playing sport, the rubbery cartilage that protects our bones wears down, leaving bone rubbing against bone.

It is commonly found in knees, hips, hands, and spines, while there is no miracle cure; there are pain relievers, physical therapy, regenerative therapies (like Stem Cell treatments) and surgery.

Most commonly associated with sports injuries, Orthobiologics are biological substances, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or stem cells. These substances are used to speed the healing process for musculoskeletal injuries. They may be used alone or in combination with conventional pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical based treatment. More specifically, orthobiologic therapies introduce high concentrations of naturally occurring cellular concentrates to an injury with the intention of expediting the healing of muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones; thereby shortening recovery time and decreasing injury-related inflammation and pain.

In sports medicine, orthobiologic treatments are used to treat both acute and chronic conditions, including common conditions caused by overuse. Athletes and orthopedists often turn to orthobiologic therapies in the hope of returning an athlete to preinjury physical condition as soon as possible. For the most part, orthopedists will use biologics in place of pharmaceuticals and/or invasive surgery

bioXgel (PRP)

The therapy using bioXgel involves isolating the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from a patient’s blood and inserting it back into the area that is going to be treated to encourage the body to heal itself. bioXgel not only encourages your body to heal itself, but it can also speed up the healing process.

During this procedure, a small amount of blood is extracted from the patient. The laboratory then isolates the plasma using a centrifuge. After isolating it, the doctor will insert the plasma back into the patient using an injection. For some areas, the doctor may use an imaging machine to guide the injection into the correct area.

The plasma causes temporary inflammation in the area, which signals the body’s natural healing system to act on the injury and correct the issue. During this process, the body will heal the underlying issue.

This therapy can be used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal issues. bioXgel has been effective in treating injuries such as broken or fractured bones, ligament and tendon issues, and muscle injuries.

Our product, bioXgel can also be used to heal the body after surgery or injury. Because of its ability to heal the body at a faster speed, this therapy is a popular treatment method in sports medicine.

Patients may benefit from a unique non-surgical procedure using stem cells and growth factors (bioXgel) that may help repair damaged tissue, reduce pain and promote healing. During the procedure, bioXgel and Stem cells are combined in the laboratory and they are then injected into the areas to be treated.
