A few months back we reported on Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman, used Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy for an injured wrist. Freeman returned to the field in a relatively short time, like most athletes who undergo the treatment.
Now, thanks to PRP therapy, he is once again the bright star in the Braves lineup.
Recently, two more Major League Baseball (MLB) players have received platelet rich plasma for their injuries:
- San Francisco Giants’ center fielder, Angel Pagan. He placed on the 15-day disabled list for tendinitis in his right knee.
- Boston Red Sox second baseman, Dustin Pedroia, for a hamstring injury.
After receiving PRP, both men reported feeling immediate relief. They also understood how platelet rich plasma would allow their injuries to “calm down,” and heal more quickly.
Platelet rich plasma is increasingly becoming the standard of care for orthopedic and sports related injuries.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet rich plasma is a specialized healing formula that is created using your own blood. The white and red cells are separated from a sample of your blood using a powerful centrifuge.
The process generates an injectable fluid that is “super-charged” with platelets, healing proteins, and undifferentiated stem cells.
When this compound is injected to the site of an injury, like it was for Pedroia and Pagan, it stimulates increased blood flow. It also encourages the regrowth of cells and connective tissue at the site of the injury. This has proven time and again to accelerate the healing process.
Platelet rich plasma is what is known as a “biologic agent,” as opposed to a “drug.” Biologics and drugs differ in a variety of ways. Unlike medication, biologics use your body’s own processes to heal injuries or cure disease instead of using a combination of chemicals.
Most biologics are based on “stem cell therapies.” These treatments are becoming the foundations of regenerative medicine.
Platelet Rich Plasma and Aging Well
Pedroia and Pagan are just two of the latest in a long line of star athletes that have benefited from the remarkable healing powers of platelet rich plasma. However, the amazing healing powers of platelet rich plasma are not limited to the playing field. In fact platelet rich plasma is one of the cornerstones of physician guided age management.
At HealthGAINS, men from all walks of life are finding out how platelet rich plasma can also help them achieve “peak performance,” not on a baseball diamond, but in the bedroom!
Platelet rich plasma has proven to be the safest and most effective surgery-free and drug-free treatment available for erectile dysfunction, or ED.
Platelet rich plasma increases blood flow, and stimulates the growth of new cells in the healing of sports related injuries. That same process also provides a cure for ED!
In fact, platelet rich plasma as used in my own proprietary ED treatment, The Gains Enhancement. This is the only non-surgical ED treatment that will not only improve your ability to get and maintain an erection, but it can increase the length of your penis!
