Korean Basketball Player Choo Seung-Gyun, receives PRP Platelet Rich Plasma injection treatment and wins MVP after Hamstring Injury

Technorati blog directory
Shortly following the visit to the Orthohealing Center in Los Angeles by Dr Jae Ryu MD PhD ; Choo Seung-Gyunof was treated in Korea with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for a Hamstring injury. Following successful treatment Choo lead the Egis throug a game 7 series in the (KBL) Korean Basketball League Championship in Jeonju.

The 34 y/o Choo set a record as the oldest player to achieve the award as well as his team's 4th Title. More & more professional athletes are receioving PRP Platelet Rich Plasma therapy. Studies are underway measuring the clinical benefits on tendon, ligament & cartilage (arthritis) for both elite & recreational athlete. This is a great example of international collaboration!

We encourage these visits & Dr Sampson will be travelling to Europe later this year to meet with pioneering physcians & researchers in biologics & stem cell therapy.

My name is Dale White and I have been suffering with bilateral plantar faciitis since 11/08. I have been under treatment since that time using a wide variety of treatment modalities none of which have worked. I have had oral pain medications, oral steroid medications, physical therapy in the form of iontophoresis, cortisone injections x 3, workups with rhematologist to rule out auto immune disease and connective tissue disease, multiple and a wide variety of blood tests (all negative), MRI of both feet to rule out a broken foot (negative), neurologist examination and testing for nerve and muscle stimulation testing (negative), 17 accupunture treatments, used guided imagery, xray of my back to rule out disc/spine/back problem, negative. My brother, a physician, found an article on PRP injections and I have been looking on line to find out more about them. I am trying to find a physician in New York City or New Jersey (where I live) to do these injections on my feet. Do you have advice, information or sites or journal articles that you would reccommed I should look at? I am trying to find as much information as possible about this injection. Thanks
