I was interested in getting more information about PRP treatment in Westchester County, NY. I had never even heard about this until I read something about Tiger Woods using this kind of therapy to help him. While I certainly don’t put myself in the same category as him when it comes to golf, I knew that if this worked for him, it should for me too. We are both middle aged men who are relatively healthy and active, so I was feeling good about getting more information on it so I could consider it as an option for my pain as well.
I knew that the PRP stood for platelet rich plasma, but I did not know much more than that. I know what plasma is, but I had no idea how this could be used in a therapy treatment program to help me with some pain that I could not get rid of. I was able to go to the website of the doctor who was referred to me, and I found quite a bit of information there about PRP therapy. There was enough information that it answered all of my questions about this, and I knew that I wanted to try it.
I knew going in that this was still considered experimental, but I was willing to take that chance if it meant that I would be able to go an entire day without having pain in my knee. It would get so bad that I would often have to just stop what I was doing until some pain pills would kick in. That is no way to live, and thankfully I no longer have to live like that. I tried three treatments of PRP, and I can honestly say that it has changed my life. I feel like I have been given a second chance, and I am taking full advantage of it now.
