Los Angeles Dodgers’ All-Star Matt Kemp Expected Back on the Field Following a Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection
Following the growing trend of using regenerative medicine to heal and return to playing sooner, the LA Times has reported that Matt Kemp has joined the list of other star athletes from multiple sports (Kobe Bryant, Alex Rodriguez, Tiger Woods) who have reaped the benefits of blood spinning injections such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
The All-Star slugger was placed on the disabled list Monday with a strained left hamstring. The following day, he had his hamstring injected with platelet-rich plasma to help promote healing.
He is expected to be activated from the 15-day disabled list on May 29 and will help add firepower to an already strong Dodger team who leads the league with a 28-13 record.
At the Orthohealing Center, we have treated both professional athletes and weekend warriors with similar hamstring issues with encouraging results. Generally, hamstrings have limited blood flow and are challenging to heal. PRP gives this region a boost to accelerate healing naturally.
