    PRP treatment

    Anyone had this for a tendon or ligament injury? I know a bunch of guys at the gym who have done it with great success. Straight30, you might want to look into it. It's very affordable.

    I’m unfamiliar with it. I’ll have to look it up.
    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead.
    Do not walk in front of me, for I may not follow.
    Do not walk beside me either.
    Pretty much just leave me alone.

    It's a way of healing soft tissue by way of your own immune response. It's pretty amazing. Combined with stem cells it can replace surgery in a lot of cases

    I know people that do it themselves. You can get everything you need online.

    i know of 3 people that had it done for achilles tendonitis and had great results. they were all endurance athletes. it was painful for the first week to 10 days. but after about 4-6 weeks they were back to full training and pain free. none of there insurance covered it and it averaged about 3 grand. those are ny numbers. 1 of the women is a tri athlete and had achilles problems for about 3 years along with calf strains etc. she finally had prp and wished she would have done it sooner.

    I considered it for a long bout of rotator cuff tendinitis but rehabed it before doing it. The people that I know who did it were blown away much like you describe. It costs about $800 here
