U.S.A. Hurdle specialist Kellie Wells has joined elite athletes Tiger Woods, Hines Ward and Takaishi Saito in using Cell Therapy. According to A.J. Farshchian, MD, an Orthopedic Regenerative practitioner at The Center for Regenerative Medicine, "Sport injuries need an adequate blood supply and cellular migration. Platelet-derived growth factors are critically involved in this process."
Despite weeks of intense physical therapy, Kellie Wells was on the field for last week’s practice because of cell therapy injections. Kellie Wells suffered an injury to her lower back. These injuries can often take weeks to months to heal, but Wells wasn't about to let it affect her ability to play hard. For this reason, Ms. Wells visited The Center for Regenerative Medicine.
According to Dr. A.J. Farshchian, Medical Director for The Center for Regenerative Medicine, explains; "Sports injuries need an adequate blood supply and cellular migration. Platelet-derived growth factors are critically involved in this process. These cells allow the body to take advantage of the normal healing pathways at a greatly accelerated rate. During the healing process, the body rushes many cells and cell-types to the injected area in order to accelerate the healing process. These cells perform many functions, including release of growth factors (GF) into the diseased or arthritic and injured sites.” Farshchian further adds, “Kellie Wells isn't the only athlete to reap the benefits of cell therapy. Hines Ward got his injection before the Super bowl, Tiger Woods got his knee repaired last year and L.A. Dodgers Takashi Saito was able to pitch in the playoffs thanks to an injection into his right elbow's ulnar collateral ligament, which saved him from Tommy John surgery."
After suffering a heartbreaking injury at the 2008 Olympic Trials where she was unable to compete in the finals due to a hamstring tear, Wells made an impressive comeback in 2011 by winning her first outdoor and indoor national titles, and dominating the top marks lists. Wells’ winning time of 7.79 at the 2011 USA Indoor Championships was the No. 1 time in the world for the year, and at the time gave her the nine fastest times in the world. In the summer of 2011.
Wells remains a strong contender in the upcoming Nationals, and is looking forward to taking the Gold at the 2012 London Summer Olympics.
Dr. Farshchian will be joining the U.S.A. track and field team for London Olympics.
