snip:
NFL players hoping to extend their playing career apparently don't think stem-cell treatment is a bad idea. Last week came a report that injured Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning had stem cell therapy in Europe before having a third neck surgery this month. Now comes a new report that free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens is in South Korea for a three-day stem-cell therapy treatment.
The Korea Times reported Tuesday that Owens, hoping to continue his NFL career, is currently in South Korea for stem-cell therapy on his surgically repaired ACL. Owens has so far been unable to get signed as a free agent, and he's apparently hoping the treatment will speed recovery from the off-season ACL surgery.

Former NFL defensive lineman Jarvis Green said stem-cell therapy has changed his life.

Former NFL defensive lineman Jarvis Green's decision to have stem-cell therapy on a torn-up knee wasn't just about football. It was also about quality of life. And 15 months after the procedure, from both a football and life standpoint, he has a message for Peyton Manning:

Good days are ahead.

Very interesting.

I have heard good things about stem cell treatments. But I know very little.
