According to a report in Le Parisien, Schumacher would be receiving stem cells.

This treatment would help him in obtaining an anti-inflammatory effect throughout his system.

"The treatment will begin on Tuesday morning and (he will) leave the establishment on Wednesday," Le Parisien quoted.

It also stated that he was already treated twice this spring.
