As a result of competition among athletes, a number of auxiliary tools and treatments have been used to increase the physical power, agility, durability, and performance of the athletes on the field. Some substances and treatments containing factors that disrupt the balance in the competition are called doping and are banned by the rules of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Beyond these, healing accelerator biological applications are utilized in the treatment of disabilities in orthopedic practice. Several locally effective hormones, genetic treatments, scaffolds, and cellular tissue engineering products will be the center of interest in the near future. In this paper, we summarize the current literature regarding applications that increase athletic performance and allow injured athletes to return to active sports.
