ESPN discusses Platelet Rich Plasma and Troy Polamalu of the Pittsburgh Steelers
ESPN this morning discussed the use of PRP to accelerate the recovery time for pro bowl defensive player Troy Polamalu. Troy suffered a knee MCL tear which is a non-surgical injury that can take anywhere up to 8 weeks to heal. Hopefully with PRP he can cut the recovery process in half. PRP works quicker when there is a new injury to maximize the ongoing healing process.
Hines Ward received the same treatment to his knee MCL tear accelerate his recovery in the Superbowl
