Athletic endeavor has always intertwined with pursuing optimal physical performance. This, coupled with the inherent risk of traumatic injury has placed sports medicine at the forefront of progressive treatment. The emergence of Regenerative Medicine has led to the clinical translation of sports medicine related problems. The use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Therapy are cornerstones of this model. The scientific literature will be explored to provide a foundation for the pathophysiology of injury and trauma as it relates to sports medicine, and the regulation of catabolic responses through cellular signaling and cytokines. The rationale for the use of Stem Cell Therapy and PRP in sports medicine is presented. Various clinical cases are presented to illustrate the utilization of stem cell therapy and PRP as a therapeutic strategy to assist athletes in their return to sport. Select situations in which standard medical treatment is a surgical intervention, may be unsuitable for return to sport. A Regenerative Medicine treatment model incorporating Stem Cell Therapy, may provide suitable alternative strategies that facilitate healing and repair, without precluding return to sport. In the sports medicine world success is measured by return to sport. The clinical translation of Stem Cell Therapy into sports medicine, may foster a transformation of treatment strategy.
