U.S.A. Olympian Damu Cherry Has Joined Elite Athletes Tiger Woods, Hines Ward and Takaishi Saito in using Cell Therapy
U.S.A. Olympian Damu Cherry 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, Damu Cherry was on the field for last week’s practice because of cell therapy injections. cherry suffered an injury to her Achillis tendon. These injuries can often take weeks to months to heal, but Cherry wasn’t about to let it affect her ability to play hard. For this reason, Ms. cherry 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, “Damu Cherry 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.”
Ms. Damu Cherry has had an incredible Olympic career. She is an American hurdler specializing in 110 meter Hurdle. Her personal best time is 12.44 seconds, achieved in July 2006, same year she made second at the 2006 World Athletics Final. She qualified for the 2008 Olympic team and ended up taking fourth in the hurdles final.
Cherry remains a strong contender in the upcoming Nationals, and is looking forward to taking the Gold at the 2012 London Summer Olympics.
