Terrell Owens Gets Stem Cell Treatment

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. WR Terrell Owens recently flew to Korea to undergo stem cell therapy on his injured knee.  It's the same type of treatment that Colts QB Peyton Manning had on his neck.  The news confirms that T.O. is trying to continue his NFL career, but it also makes it clear that he's not yet close to being 100% recovered from that torn ACL. Dr. Lee Jung-no of South Korea, president of the Chaum Anti-Aging center, confirmed Owens' visit to the Korea Times. "Mr. Owens starts with therapy Monday followed by the collecting and storing of his stem cells the next day," Lee told the newspaper. "We do have our branch hospital in the United States, and Dr. Andrews advised Owens to contact it first, which then led him to visit our office here." Stem-cell therapy isn't approved in the U.S.
