Default Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy

I've researched this quite a bit online after hearing about it's positive effects on pro athletes. I have two bad shoulders...4 surgeries in all and I was wondering if anyone here has tried this or knows much about it? It sounds promising. Thanks.

I looked into as well. Was told by my Dr it wasn't worth it there is no evidence to back it up as something that actually works.

On the other hand I don't always listen to Drs because they don't know everything either so I'm still interested in peoples experience with this therapy.

My chiropractor made the point that doctors won't back it because if you used it instead of surgery they would be screwed. The fda won't back it either. It may all be about money and the fact that it's new. There are people who swear by it. Anyone with info please chime in.

I suffered a tear to my rotator cuff Nov 2 2020 and had the PRPT done in the office under half an hour on Dec 23 2020.

The high cost came with a positive benefit weeks later as my shoulder was improving very well I might add.

I graduated from Shoulder Rehab You tube University and today I report weekly improvements. I'm taking baby steps so not to re injure twice, so far so good.

Two local bodybuilders I know have had PRPT done and both noted a positive outcome.

Friend of mine had it done on his back as a last resort before surgery, doc said if it didn't work no more squatting or deadlifting. He now squats 600+ and deadlifts 700.
