NFL Player Platelet Rich Plasma

Another NFL player has documented success using platelet rich plasma for elbow tendonitis.

See story in Philadelphia newspaper.

This is a recurring pattern of elite athletes being treated with PRP. The evidence is, however, unfortunately weak. We need formal studies to prove these results are valid. If the NFL, MLB, NBA or other leagues sponsored formal trials or at least prospective studies we would better be able to determine the true value of PRP. We could also hopefully answer questions about what formulation of PRP is best.
