Recently Dwight Howard of the Houston Rockets suffered a strain to his right knee, as reported by ESPN. Mr. Howard turned to PRP for a speedy recovery. While PRP might be relatively unknown outside of the professional athelete circles, PRP can be performed right in our offices with very little downtime.
“PRP” stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, and it is a process where your own natural growth factors from your blood are injected directly into the area of the injury. PRP makes it possible for your body to essentially heal itself.
Dwight Howard is far from the first professional athelete to receive these injections for this sort of injury. Many professional players and hundreds of recreational athletes have undergone PRP, including Tiger Woods and Kobe Bryant travelled overseas to receive the relatively simple treatment. Since our own Dr. Vinay Chopra has been practicing PRP for quite some time now, there is no need to travel overseas to receive PRP treatments. You can receive this innovative treatment right in our offices! Contact us today to learn more about how PRP may benefit your orthopedic health.
