PRP Therapy made famous by Kobe Bryant relieves pain from his knee injury and speeds healing.
Inglewood, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/22/2013 -- Stories about Kobe Bryant traveling to Germany to try out a new cutting-edge therapy to treat his knee injury were all over the media. He even posted pictures of his injections on InstaGram. The treatment, called Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP), is not limited to celebrity athletes, and people don’t have to go to Germany to avail themselves of PRP Therapy. The Releford Medical Institute of Los Angeles has been using PRP injections to treat sports-related and other injuries, as well as many other painful conditions, with great success.
Dr. Bill Releford, a doctor of podiatric medicine and the founder and CEO of the Releford Medical Institute (RMI), and the Releford Foot and Ankle Institute (RFAI), states that: “Celebrity athletes like Kobe Bryant and Tiger Woods have known about PRP for years. At the RMI, we have a team in place to treat sports-related and orthopedic injuries using a proprietary PRP methodology and treatment.”
At a recent interview, Dr. John Simmonds, Medical Director of the RMI stated: “World-Class Athletes seek out the most innovative and effective medical care available, and they make headlines every time they hop on a plane. But in almost all cases – and certainly in the case of PRP therapy – the same treatments are available here in the United States. I think it’s important,” continues Dr. Simmonds, “that amateur athletes and others suffering from pain know that we can alleviate their pain using the latest technology and methodologies.”
Joining Dr. Releford is the RMI’s Medical Director and Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. John Simmonds, and tissue specialist James Hays. Using non-surgical methods whenever possible, these experts allow the RMI to provide the highest standards of medical care and manage common and complex orthopedic and sports medicine conditions. These include proprietary PRP injections, patient education, chiropractic, physical medicine, physical therapy, rehabilitative treatments, nutrition, and sports medicine eduction.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy “supercharges” the healing process when injected into damaged tissues. The R&D team at Releford Medical Institute has developed proprietary methods to use PRP in the treatment of Diabetic and HIV Neuropathy. The injections are also used in Orthopedics to treat joint and tendon pain, ankle sprains, heel pain, non-healing wounds, plantar fasciitis, poor circulation, and many other conditions. PRP therapy has made headlines due to its successful use by professional athletes like Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, Alex Rodriguez, and Rafael Nadal.
