Houston Rockets Dwight Howard Joins Other Pros with PRP Treatment
If you follow my blog (and well you should!) you have heard me talk quite a bit about the various benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP therapy. Now, another well-known sports figure is in the news using PRP to “get back in the game.”
Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard recently underwent platelet-rich plasma therapy to treat his strained right knee. He joins fellow NBA star, Kobe Bryant, and many other athletes who have used PRP to treat similar injuries.
Said Howard, “I’m trying to do whatever I can to get back on the floor, and [after the PRP] it feels a lot better.”
PRP uses the healing factors in a patient’s own blood to reduce inflammation and stimulate healing. There is no indication yet how soon Howard can return to the lineup, however, in clinical trials, PRP has helped hasten recovery from similar injuries.
PRP and Joints Rejuvenation
You do not have to be a sports star, or rich or famous to realize the remarkable benefits of this breakthrough therapy PRP treatment. In fact, you do not even need to be injured! While PRP was initially used for the treatment of sport injuries, and as Howard is seeing, is still an excellent treatment for damaged joints, it has many other uses.
As an age management practitioner, I use PRP to not only reduce pain and improve mobility, but for a variety of rejuvenate procedures. We use PRP effectively to improve skin health, and restore a more youthful appearance with procedures such as the Vampire Facelift®, and to improve sexual wellness issues, in the O-shot for women, or my own proprietary male enhancement technique – the Gains Enhancement for Men.
PRP for Male Enhancement
Men who have used the Gains Enhancement have reported increased size and improved sexual satisfaction in a single visit.
The future uses of PRP in age management seem to be almost limitless thanks to the ability of this technique to stimulate healing and promote the growth of new cells.
It is already being used for hair restoration, and a number of other aesthetic procedures. It has shown promise for the relief of foot and heel pain, a common problem as we age. It is being studied for the treatment of slow or non-healing wounds, tendonitis, and even as a way to hasten healing after open heart surgery!
In fact, Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is one of the first treatments to actually deliver on the promise of stem cell research. The more we learn about how stem cells work, and their influence on how we age and heal, the more we will be able to leverage this bold new science to slow-down, and even reverse the aging process.
