PRP and Muscle Tears

Several people have emailed asking about using PRP for muscle injuries. Platelet rich plasma may eventually be a valuable treatment for this type of connective tissue problem. However, to date no significant data has been published or presented to guide physicians or patients. If a patients presents with either an acute or chronic muscle injury PRP may be an option but so far there isn't any specific study to support its use.

This research is rapidly evolving so watch this blog for updates.

Having a torn muscle is totally painful, and I've experienced that kind of pain when I am doing my weightlifting exercise. Getting nervous, I called an ambulance to bring me to the hospital. Accessing my past medical records with the use of their practice management software, I was brought in a room so they could patch me up.

With their superior procedures and streamlined medical billing service, I never had any problems on my stay there.
