On the Mend – PRP Treatment Extends Ballplayers Career
Every day we read about big-name sports stars who receive non-surgical treatment in the form of PRP treatments. Last week Los Angeles Laker superstar Kobe Bryant received his annual injection, and his performance on the basketball court is certainly among the best in NBA history.
Sometimes an athlete who is above the average age of those he plays and competes with suffers an injury, and surgery might mean an end to their career. Such a story was recently published by the Connecticut Post, about a baseball player with an elbow injury who was sent down to the minor leagues to mend. For this player, PRP treatment may mean his professional career will go on:
Outfielder Joe Mather thought that he might have played the final game of his career. He suffered a tear in the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. It’s an injury that is often remedied by Tommy John surgery, which would have sidelined Mather for seven to 12 months. At the age of 32, he knew there was no guarantee that he would return for a 15th season.
However, that is not a decision Mather will have to make right now. He received a platelet-rich plasma injection in early July, and again finds himself on the active roster with the Bluefish.
“It was scary at first,” Mather said. “I thought it was going to require surgery so I was pretty pleased that they had an alternative. That kind of took some weight off my shoulders. It’s still a little tentative just because I don’t know if this is going to stick, but so far it’s been good.”
Dr. Vincent Trent of the South Shore Medical Group in Houston has for many years been a pioneer in the field of regenerative medicine and PRP treatments. He has had remarkable success helping athletes and non-athletes avoid costly and painful surgeries with breakthrough technologies that restore healthy joints, tendons, and ligaments.
Dr. Trent uses PRP technology to successfully treat tennis elbow, rotator cuff tears, patellar tendonitis, hip tendonitis and more injuries and aches for weekend warriors and anyone who suffers from chronic pain. Dr. Trent can be reached at 800-555-1212.
