Our country wasn’t the first to adopt PRP. Kobe Bryant had to run to Germany to get his first PRP treatment. And his success and his raving about his success contributed heavily to PRP’s skyrocketing popularity now. In fact, he’s the one who told Alex Rodriguez to get his PRP. Bryant is indeed the first evangelist for PRP in the USA.
Now, researchers have proven the benefits of PRP for a lot of medical conditions including Tennis Elbow, Rotator Cuff injuries, Chronic Plantar Fasciitis, Hamstring Injuries, Patellar Tendinitis, Knee Arthritis, Hip Arthritis, in addition to its Skin Rejuvenation Properties.
