Tennis Superstar Rafael Nadal Uses PRP Therapy

rafael-nadalEver wonder how tennis superstar Rafael Nadal made his astounding comeback last year? Lots of patience, hard work, and an effective treatment program including Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy! Years of intense practice and play, especially on hard courts, had taken a potentially career-threatening toll on the Spaniard’s knees, but with the help of intense physical therapy and PRP treatments he is back on the court and able to compete in this year’s US Open.

These days, many athletes like Nadal have used PRP to recover from injuries and general wear-and-tear, including Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriguez.

PRP continues to show promise for speedy, effective recovery in professional athletes and “Weekend Warriors” alike. PRP offers a great alternative to surgery by stimulating the body’s natural healing forces without the need for aggressive long term medications and providing significant benefit to patients with joint pain, soft tissue injuries, low back disc degeneration and arthritis.
