Female track star Antonette Carter is a four time All American and holds six school records. She runs the 100 and 200 meter races and is currently training for the Olympic trials in Eugene, Oregon.
Unfortunately she has had a few setbacks along the way. She has been hampered by Achilles tendinitis and retrocalcaneal bursitis as a result of her rigorous training regimen.
Dr. Bill Releford decided to administer PRP injection therapy 2 times over a four week period to try and heal these painful conditions. Carter says since her treatment, she ran a season best and is completely pain free!
