Peyton Manning had stem cell therapy for nagging neck injury
Peyton Manning neck injury report-- Colts quarterback Peyton Manning traveled to Europe for stem cell therapy that is currently not approved in the United States as he made a last-ditch effort to stave off further surgery on his neck in September.
Dr. Victor Khabie, co-chief of the Orthopedics and Spine Institute at Northern Westchester Hospital, cautioned that the nerves in Manning's neck could affect his arm strength, and may limit his capabilities moving forward.
"He doesn't have a desk job, he's got large, athletic men running at him, causing hits that affect the neck," Khabie said. "He takes blows to the body. It's a problem, and shows he has ongoing issues." Read more about Peyton Manning neck injury>
