PRP helps Golfer’s and other athletes recover faster from injuries so that they can continue to play the sport they love.
itself at a very rapid pace, which has many amateur and professional athletes
taking notice. 2019 PGA Master’sChampion Tiger Woods had quite a serious injury to his ACL back in 2008.
Because the ACL ligament is responsible for the rotational stability of our knees,
damage to this ligament and the knee joint can change the trajectory of a
golfer’s career. The time lost playing and practice that comes with this type
of injury and healing/therapy involved with it makes it a minimum of nine
months off the greens. For someone like Woods in the prime of their career, he
needed to do anything he could to get healthy and made the wise decision to
take look into regenerative medicine to heal his body. PRP helps golfers recover from injuries keeping them off the green.

PRP or, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, is a newer regenerative
medicine treatment gaining popularity that can be used to help repair and bring
back both mobility and strength to patients injured ligaments and tendons.
The goal of PRP is to separate and concentrate your body’s natural healing
cells, known as cytokines and growth factors from the platelets that are
contained within our plasma to help dramatically speed up the process of healing
overall. PRP is non-invasive as we only draw a small amount of blood and
requires almost zero downtime, which, making it perfect for people with jobs
that they need to be active in, like fire, police, construction workers etc.…,
or athletes looking to return faster to their sports as quickly as they can.
Tiger Woods had received a total of four PRP injections intohis left knee. They are almost painless as the area can be anesthetized locally
to minimize discomfort. You’ll be able to walk out immediately after your
injection. The results for the platelet rich plasma treatments were incredible
for the Jupiter, Florida Golfer, which then had him use PRP again on his
Achilles’ tendons soon after. The rest, as they say, is history as Woods has made
of the most incredible comebacks in sports history and looks to be in
phenomenal shape once again.
The experience of the clinic and physician is extremely important as there are several nuances involved in regenerative medicine.
